I was asked a straight question and gave a straight answer.

In what way do you want to see the island of Ireland united without breaking up the UK? I’ll assume the embarrassed snipping above is coy shame (if you’re capable of that) at the bigotry and extremism of your preferred means - unless you have some other solution up your sleeve.

That we are one nation is beyond dispute.  As it said in the AoU, "That the Two Kingdoms of Scotland and England shall upon the first day of May next ensuing the date hereof and forever after be United into One Kingdom by the Name of Great Britain."

So, if  the nation is to be named Great Britain from "the date hereof and forever after", why did they change the nation's name to the "United Kingdom" around 100 years later?

Looks like it can be amended at will.

Just go back and correct any statements you made about me wanting to break up the UK.  There's a good boy.

It has ever been thus - but I prefer to think of replying as doing a kindness. He clearly has no one in real life to provide attention - gaining even negative attention from strangers fills the void.

Apologies - I should have said you want to further break up the UK. And you do, if you want to see Ireland united. Unless, of course, you want to force the Irish (against their will) back under a system they found intolerable and for which countless people died to escape. And that would make you a disgusting, far-right lunatic, beyond even Britain First. If I were you, I’d prefer the label of UK-smasher (although, I suppose in the world of the extremist, that would be the equivalent of a Ku Klux Klan member accepting being called a BLM supporter).

No.  The 2nd article refers to the, "United Kingdom of Great Britain".  We were the UK from Day 1.  Though you're more likely to remember than a youngster like me.

Ah. Misleading by omission! That's no more than I expect from you!

The act refers to the "United Kingdom of Great Britain and of the Dominions". As far as I'm aware, that's not the current name. 

Talking of dominions, did you notice that another one has rejected Queenie as Head of State?

Dominions … Dominions … wasn’t the Irish Free State given dominion status? As the bold Kincy has exclusively revealed he wants to force the Irish back into servitude, it makes you wonder which other Dominions he’d quite like to see united under overlordship from London. India? South Africa? Canada? Ceylon? Empire.2, all masterminded by a lonely, unloved Scottish weirdo, radicalised by Twitter, living in England, and trolling for attention on a fitbaw forum. It’ll work this time, I’m sure,

Please don't become like the other Natter trolls on here.

Unlike the ScotchNats I've always been an avid supporter of the European ideal.  We've had two Europe-related polls in my time.  In 1975 we had the daft ScotchNats warning of the evils of Scotland belonging to the EEC.  In the second we had the more modern but equally daft wee ScotchNats warning of the evils of leaving the EU.  In both cases the issue, for them, was how best to justify partition of our unitary nation state.

I've always wanted fewer national boundaries which is why I despise ScotchNattery and why I'd like to see Ireland united.

I've always, even in my teens, been a huge supporter of deeper European integration - which is why I voted Remain in 2016 and why I have stated many times on here how much I despise Brexit.

So the British Isles as one united region in a European coalition of regions may be highly optimistic and certainly not achievable in my lifetime but is a laudable ambition and one I aspire to.

So was I trolling?  Absolutely not.  Do I despise nationalism?  Of course - of every kind.

Barbados is welcome to its new political settlement.  You're mistaking me for a monarchist

This certainly explains your voting for those architects of Brexit, the nationalistic Tories; your overt support for other Brexit-supporting parties; your spreading of propaganda by Brexit-supporting extremists; your current fanatical support for Brexit Britain; and your frequent use of nationalist regalia as profile pictures. It’s almost as if you say and do whatever will get you attention.

Nope.  I haven't voted Tory for a while and in the Chesham and Amersham by-election I voted LibDem.

Regalia is always great.  I support Scotland in all sports but doesn't mean I want independence.

As for, "whatever will get (me) attention"?  Are you daft?  Nationalism is corrosive and - intentionally - divisive.  That's why I dislike it.

Only minutes ago, you were quoting from article 2 of the Union with England Act 1707. That's the bit of the Act that sets out the royal succession, and bars "papists" from the throne.

Are you now picking and choosing the sections of the Act you agree with and support? How two-faced.

Is that the same Lib Dems who are born-again Brexiters who have decisively rejected campaigning to rejoin the EU? The same party whose leader said before that by-election, “We are not a re-join party, but we are a very pro-European party”? Aye, choosing a party of watered-down-nationalist Brexit appeasers sounds like real commitment to the EU.

That we have a unitary nation-state and a hereditary Protestant monarchy are true truths.  That doesn't mean I have to like them but to deny that they are real is imbecilic.

British nationalism certainly is. It has corroded the EU. It has corroded the UK, breaking it up in the twentieth century (thankfully, for those countries which escaped its rule). And yet you want to force the Irish back in the name of it, despite their having no appetite for returning to the bad old days.

'The Irish' don't need to be 'forced back' - as witnessed by the many millions of people in GB with Irish heritage and the ongoing delight of the CTA.

Had to put some of these yins on ignore yesterday mate.  Their sense of entitlement was through the roof.

It's already highly improved my posting experience.
