Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Could someone ask the new leader if it makes any sense to keep a separate North Ireland, now that the English Prime Minister is himself a Papist?

He is?

A quick search found this on Wikipedia, so apparently he is:

Johnson was baptised a Catholic and later confirmed into the Church of England,[53] but has stated that "his faith comes and goes"[616] and that he is not a serious practising Christian.[617] In 2020, his son Wilfred was baptised Catholic, prompting suggestions that Johnson had returned to Catholicism.[618] Johnson and Symonds married in a Catholic ceremony at Westminster Cathedral on 29 May 2021.[619] In order to be married in the Catholic Church, Johnson needed to have his two previous marriages proven to be invalid by reason of lack of canonical form. Since he was baptised Catholic but his previous weddings were not conferred by the Catholic Church, they are considered putatively invalid.[620][621]

Will they invite the Stuarts back next? Apparently the curent "king across the water" is Duke Franz of Bavaria though he isn't keen on claiming his title moving to England, which one can well understand.
