Confused of the Six Counties

Professor John Murphy has a look at the electoral behaviour of our politicians in the Sunday Independent, Keep the lunacy out, and concludes “It would be lunacy to consider incorporating the bitterly polarised and hatred-riven society we saw yesterday into our body politic.” Elsewhere in the same paper, Rash of gangland hits set to make it bloodiest year yet, Jim Cusack points out that “Seven gangland hits, the latest in broad daylight on Thursday, have taken place since March”, all drugs related. so, Just as those in the 26 counties might look askance at our shenanigans, isn’t it rather presumptious to assume we peaceful Northerners might want to join with a country losing a war with organised crime?
