Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I admit, I am not confident as to how NI civil society will respond to this particular provocation or future incidents. After several months monitoring Belfast Telegraph, I am still not fluent in psycho and have observed that DUP "opposition" party figureheads are weak, have not mobilizing constituents' purported support for REMAIN.

All is not lost.

In a reasonable NI world, local law enforcement would accept responsibility to investigate and prosecute such crimes. A show of competence in executing "rule of law" supposedly demonstrates to investors in NI industries NI prudential safety.

EU27 response? 1. do nothing, or 2. encourage FDI in NI

In a "go full DRPK world", local law enforcement would reject responsibility for such crimes (do nothing) and delegate police action to UK gov (escalate violence). A show of incompetence in executing "rule of law" supposedly demonstrates to investors in NI industries NI prudential risk. (cue rating agencies)

EU27 response? 1. facilitate NI immigration (economic and political refugee status), NI "frontier worker" opportunity 2. encourage FDI in IE

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
