    Don't do that please as I've just got a job in Belfast. It'd help if I'm not lynched in a year and sent back packing.
    You might enjoy backpacking - getting out more and seeing the world.

    I love backpacking to be fair so that might work for me. As long as they provide a boat at some point.

    The ultimate in accountancy lessons. Sell out your own citizens to save a few quid.

    It is to me. I was born and raised there. I couldnt give a fuck if the others don't think it is.

    You know how pissed off Unionists/Loyalists are in Belfast right now due to the city hall flag issue? Imagine that on a national (NI) basis.

    It's the cold bit of Ireland we can't get rid of. It's like a Scotland with less oil and more peat.

    Belfast...East Belfast to be precise. And I've never thrown a petrol bomb in my life.

  • Deleted user 11 December 2012 20:26:05

    I recently visited Belfast for an interview. I wasn't blown up, it was amazingly clean and pretty impressive. I'm used to Birmingham which is dirty, has rubbish everywhere and also has one of the shittest city centers in the world.

    Most prods are furious...well, the ones I know. But what you are seeing isnt most prods. What you are seeing is the Loyalists flexing their muscles. Most prods won't go out on the streets, but they won't forget the Alliance come the next elections. The Alliance dont poll in catholic areas, only prod ones.

    Loyalists/Unionists will kick off about anything that remotely resembles a loss of British identity in their society. They are extremely defensive of their nationality.

    It's a place my eldest brother is obsessed with.

    I was born in Liverpool, my second name is of Irish origin so it's likely I have Irish ancestry somewhere in the genes however I've never felt the urge to look into it.

    Hm, what else? Their melodious manner of speech means they make excellent BBC show hosts and panelists.

    Then of course there's The Troubles but I think that is something we would all rather just forget about.
