Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As I wrote before,  subsidizing the sectarian lifestyle doesn't come cheap. And I understand it's not only the oversized security apparatus, but an extra number of civil services jobs and also additional subsidies for businesses who open an office in Belfast rather than, say, Birmingham. Take these incentives away and the economy will degrade rapidly: war is particularly expensive if you have to pay for it with your own money.
