Was It For This?

at

Ah here.

Last night.

UK people are asked to draw the Northern Ireland border on Channel 4 News with dismaying consequences.

Meanwhile…

Proper order.

Meanwhile…

Keyboard mashing?

European Languages according to the Dutch (Reddit)

    Perhaps BS could approach a selection of people on the streets of Dublin this afternoon and ask them to draw exactly where the border is between England and Scotland ?

        Does the average person knowing exactly where the northern Ireland border is, have any change on the implications of Brexit? Get the border correct = Brexit Guess the border a bit higher/ lower = Brexit. Pointless exercise that means nothing.

      that one’s not terribly difficult, travelling North to South, draw a line at the point where the coastline stops freaking out.

      Two that always catch me out are the Wales-England border (always thought Wales was bigger) and the position of London.

            If you were a shade of paint you’d be known as H-Block Dirty Protest Beige, such is your dullness.
            And now back to your inane bum-slapping with your online frat mates.

            Come on! That’s good stuff.

            Well it wasn’t tediously racist or a bunch of childishly obvious lies about Brexit or cringing fawning over right-wing UK idiots, so I suppose it’s an improvement, although it does indicate a source for some of his bitter resentments.

      False equivalence.

      The NI border is part of the UK, but the England/Scotland border isn’t part of Ireland.

      Not being able to draw the borders of your own country is not the same as not being able to draw the internal border between two regions in a different country, you absolute tool.

      I think that due to the constant (obsessive?) coverage of what goes on in Britain by the Irish media, that Irish people assume that the British people pay the same kind of attention to whats happening in Ireland. The truth is that they don’t give a rats ass about what happens in Ireland, Irish people should pay less attention to what they think about anything.

        Ain’t this the case.
        But Paddy thinks he’s important therefore he thinks other people think he’s important.
        And not just in the UK.
        Ask any bar owner along Bondi Beach what he thinks of Paddy.

          Charger, you’re so far up your own hole that you can see daylight, yet you’re spouting on about Irish people being full of themselves?

          The English are a living dread where ever they travel to, pure lager-swilling ignorance personified.

    Auld wan at 1:20 reflects the attitude to Ireland of a lot of English people. What was it that Irish people lost exactly?

      It’s a set-up – the daily mail boys et al realise they backed a loser, so blame paddy when the whole thing goes nips up. This has the real possibility of setting off the troubles again, one side saying that the unification of the island and stay in the EU is an undeniable logic, (the vast majority on the Island are pro-EU.) and the other side will be the crackpots in the dup who think they live in the Home counties of the 1890’s, and that the Tories actually give a ducks fart about them..omniclustershambolics.
