I remember when the 'Celtic Tiger' was in full swing and we were being told the ROI was second only to Japan in the standard of living.I was once chatting to someone with slightly republican views on the United Ireland Vision... they had this idea of a dream utopia, spoilt slightly by my suggestion the British army should invade the south to make it united once more.
Then reality kicked in and back on their arses they went. Negative equity everywhere. A 100 year experiment that's failed.
. No need for Army invasion.
