[sticky] Where we are from
Ah well - i am not sure if that made it more understandable to me Thanks guys *FG*
Stop with the knowledge! I can't take in any more useful info cos my brain is likely to implode and make a mess in my skull. How do people know all this anyway? I am ashamed to admit that i know very little of my heritage (English with a possiblity of Jewish mixed in, historians looking into it). I DO know, however, that if everyone in China stood on a chair and jumped off, hitting the floor simultaneously, it would cause a tidal wave that would cover the earth. hah. Totally useless.
14 years agowouldnt worry about it.
once the EU recruits all the other countries into its fold everione will be flying the same flag making things simpler

and parts of swansea wouldn't notice a little extra water in the "torrential drizzle" just thier streets might be a bit cleaner
If we become part of the EU, I'm moving to the States. Their laws make some sense! (Note: I said "some")
Make that their law makes little sense (yes i know what i just said )

If this happens it won't be the average man in the street flying the EU flag. It will be the political elite and their institutions that do.
The nation state is the best way to organise a political framework. The EU elite know this which is why their aim is to turn the EU into a single 'nation' around which they can organise their project.
There are two problems with this.
Firstly it is being done at the expense of the existing nation states (I like to call them countries); if the EU has its way they will cease to exist in any historically reconisable form.
Secondly the project has no mandate (in England) and the work being done is being done without informing the public about 'those little things the little people have no interest in'.

I think I've finally figured out that flag. As you said, the unofficial flag for northern Ireland is basically the English flag with a coat of arms in the middle (http://www.flags.net/NOIR.htm).
The diagonal red cross however (The cross of St Patrick, patron saint of Ireland) dates back to 1801, when Ireland became part of the union. Apparently people liked it, because it wasn't changed back in 1921 when Ireland became independent again...

No, it really is a completely different country to the UK, I'd be very surprised if they don't try to hold a revolt soon... so many fools that think that fox hunting is a "sport" and that Stilton cheese is nice!
P.S. There is a little irony in this post... but as Staind said, It's been a while
