Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
tbh the "Union" is really an expression of Greater England. It's what Home counties Tories cleave to to make themselves seem rooted in our Imperial past.

Equally, in Ulter (and to a lessser extent in Scotland), it is a prop for politicians who fear irrelevance unless bolstered by the financial clout of Big Brother.

It's like the "Special Relationship", it's a confession of weakness rather than of strength
