I didn't realize 84.5% of the population means Irish people aren't the majority in their own country. Sure, there's only about 5 million people in Ireland but all that means is that the population is not that dense compared to the UK.
I wasn't, actuly. I'm not supprised, you understand. But, no, what I was talking about was the number of Old School Irish. That figure, from what I've been told, is everybody born to Irish Citizens, and the figure for people who are of old Irish in every way, is closer to 60%.If you want to be technical then speakers of "Irish" Gaelic (we should probably just call it gaelic at this point) ARE a minority in their own country. Last monoglot died in the 90's and I think only 5-10% use it as a everyday language.
Now that I'm actuly looking into it, I'm not quite as sure. I could still be right, as my source is an Irish guy, but still.
I'm still not expecting any violence. If you can't work up any force when both Gay Marrage and Abortion are both in play, well, your faith and blood isn't there. The Irish have been de-balled.
Australian.Riiiiight. It’s been decades pundits explain us the EU is always on the verge of collapse. What was the saying? One good kick in the door and the rotten house will collapse? *rolls eyes*
And here we have Dunning-Kruger in action.
By the way, how are your factories going to work when they produce parts for European factories using other parts coming from Europe, when your food comes from Europe and when the rest of the planet laughs at Britannia while suggesting trade deals that are infinitely worse than anything UK could and did obtain with them through EU membership?
Your country’s wealth doesn’t come from your ‘practical, physical, job’, because Indian and Chinese workers do more, better and cheaper. It comes from all the high value jobs that pay for your lifestyle and on which you spit. The jobs that your silly decision will fuck over, bringing UK back to a country with no comparative advantage, uncompetitive industry, bad diplomatic situation and without much to offer.
