Good lord. Is this the siege mentality? Unionists are convinced that the Irish hate them but the reality is that nobody south of Dundalk knows or even cares all that much about you. The Republic is a modern country, confident in its own skin, secular.Yes we were. The average Briton cannot comprehend Irish Nationalism's hypocrisy and bigotry.
The sad part is that British people either actively dislike or flat out don't know very much about Northern Unionists.
