Firstly, let me state that my knowledge of things Northern Irish is minimal. I'm not pro-anything or anybody there. I'm merely wondering if there's any merit in the following. It seems that problems are ongoing. Part of the population favours republicanism, in itself not intrinsically a bad thing. Part of the population wish to be British. The idea. The British government states that from x date, possibly in 6 months to a year, it will declare Northern Ireland an independent country, free to determine its own governance and destiny. All people who wish to be British may emigrate to the mainland and must give up their NI citizenship. All people who remain become Northern Irish, free to govern themselves as they wish and to make treaties with whom they wish. Britain embarks on a house-building programme to ensure all incomers are able to be accommodated. Is this idea worthy of debate or should I just boil my head?
