For Nationalists Only: What’s great about living in the United Kingdom?

This is not a trick question. It’s really an idea floated by Wendy Austin on Twitter yesterday. And the ‘rule’ implied in the title will be enforced. So unionists need not apply for inclusion in this thread (we’ll have another one exclusively for you tomorrow).

Neither is it intended to separate serious minded nationalists from a treasured ambition. You might helpfully conceive of more in the way of “what would I like to take into a United Ireland with me”? Or to tell us what you secretly admire about your unionist opponents. Either way, knock yourselves out (usual rules apply)…
