Northern Ireland, a separate political entity, is part of the UK.
Ireland, the nation-state, is not.
So what I said was absolutely correct.

Nope.

I understand you are here to try your best to provide the misleading answer.

The UK is a monarchy.

The **UK** is a monarchy.

Britain is an island.

I give you your misleading response...

Tell me, SuperFAG: does the monarch have the power to declare war, yes or no?

<quoted text>Oh, he's just melting down again. He'll come back and say "Well, it's Northern IRELAND. That's Ireland!"
He'll probably say that because Northern Ireland is part both of the UK and part of Ireland.

And since you did not specify either than either is correct.

Absolutely correct.

And since we are talking about people being banned for blood, Northern Ireland is specifically appropriate.

I know more than you, Skanque, that's what is important.

And I keep being right all the time, I understand how frustrating that is.

Let's see: Obama was elected, and the PM is appointed.

Give us a shout when you understand the difference.

"Increase in Mad Cow Deaths Alarms Experts
By SANDRA BLAKESLEE

Deaths from the human form of mad cow disease appear to be increasing, British health officials have reported, but they say it is still unclear whether the increase is the start of an epidemic or merely a statistical blip.
So far this year, 14 Britons have died of the disease. That is as many as died all last year, and five others are known to be dying from the disease, which is always fatal.
If the trend continues and an epidemic is in its early stages, experts estimate that as many as 500,000 Britons could die over the next 30 years from the disease, which is contracted by eating infected beef products.
Even if the numbers begin to fall or hold steady, they said, hundreds or thousands of people are going to die from the disease, called variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, which literally eats holes in the brains of its victims.
''I am worried about this year's figures,'' Dr. Roy Anderson, a zoologist from Oxford University who has studied the epidemic, told The Independent, a British newspaper, last week."

How many child molestations around your house, Chester? Do they go up as the range of your ankle bracelet goes down?

The thing about living in the UK, Chester, is everywhere you look, you are surrounded by the UK.

You just quoted a report from twelve years ago, what an idiot, and here we ate twelve years later and there have been so few cases that its all been forgotten years ago, the fact that you googled about it to try to find something and the best you could come up with is this, speaks volumes, and the fact that you actually go ro the trouble of googling all this stiff and leaving links shoes how sad a man you are and how empty a life you live

Ireland is an independant nation, so what you said was completely wrong, if you had said northern Ireland then you would have been right, but you clearly didn't and were so clearly WRONG, if you don't know the difference between Ireland and northern Ireland, your education must have been non existent

Northern Ireland and Ireland are seperate countries so it is you who needs a map, but as you don't have a brain to read that map it would be less than useless to you, as you are less than useless to anything else

Why does america live under such an undemocratic system, I mean even your president is APPOINTED for you, you have absolutely no say in who your candidates will be, and you get to choose from a massive two parties, it is all so clear why britain is ahead if america in the democracy tables and why so many of tge worlds democracies are the British parliamentary model, because it is the best and only true democratic system, America need to make some changes and join the real democracies of the world with real prime ministers, british style, the home of democracy and leader of the free and parliamentary world
