The two are interchangeable in most people's minds in the same way people class West Germany pre-1991 as Germany when talking about it.It's one of those 'gotcha ... (show full quote)

Our rowenta made in West Germany toaster is still going strong. Amazing really, as a new one wouldn't likely last a fraction as long.

Yeah Russia and ussr aren't vastly different. Just the means by which Putin wishes to exert control and influence that differs.

Obviously you have no idea of the Irish situation...

I'll make it easy for you:

The south is Ireland and has an Irish passport...

Then there is Northern Ireland which is part of Great Britain and the people have an "English" passport...

The caveat being most think they are Irish, the Catholics that is...The rest...Bloody Prots!!! laugh.gif

Up the Republic!!!

No surrender!!!

Get it now???

I will gladly admit I do not know much about Irish history. But through my mistake you prove my point. Thanks old one.

And from the N.I. side, the Loyalists want all Fenian basta#ds back down south of the border to keep 6/9 Ulster, 6/9 Ulster. While in the south, many consider N.I. borders to encompass the 6 "occupied" (i.e. by the UK) counties.

Troubles, anyone?

Looking at the comments from a few here, I'd suggest most have very little idea of what the different sides of NI and Ireland want or wanted, how they've thought over the years and even some if the root causes of the disputes at different stages through the last few hundred years. What 99.9% of the population want is peace, they aren't bothered by an imaginary line that is used to stoke hatred by minorities on both sides, religion doesn't bother them either, as long as they can live and travel around life is good.
