Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The irony of Northern Unionism is that they want a Union with a Britain that, to a large extent, no longer exists.  I am reminded of white South Africans fleeing SA when Apartheid ended expecting to be offered top jobs in Europe and living in big houses with pools and servants when they got here.

Many ended up in low level jobs because of their actual lack of qualifications or suitability for working in a multi-racial society and soon wanted to return to SA. Unfortunately, in the meantime, the SA economy had taken off, post sanctions, and house prices had soared. They could no longer afford to buy their former houses or live in the style to which they had been accustomed.

You are welcome to the Arlene Fosters of this world. Unfortunately they will probably want to come back...
