The unification of Ireland is within sight.

Certainly as the United KING_dom collapses.

scientology is refused tax free status in the UK, France and many other countries.
Any country that issues tax exemption to that bunch of cruisetards has issues!
Oh, it is so much better in countries with state religions- like the United Kingdom- to official declare which religions are real and which aren't.

And to reward real religions with tax exempt statuses.

Because we all know the Church of England is based on facts...

Churches- particularly, the Church of England- do in fact receive tax monies and tax privileges.

In the 1973 referendum the public were asked
1. Do you want Northern Ireland to remain part of the United Kingdom?
or
2. Do you want Northern Ireland to be joined with the Republic of Ireland outside the United Kingdom?
the result was 98.9% in favour of option 1
Considerably to the relief of many of us in the Republic.

If Scotland wants to opt out of the economic relationship they willingly joined in 1707, they need to take Northern Ireland with them. It seems the more intransigent someone is, the more Scottish their surname.

Among many sources...
"This was the time when Churchill began to think about the need for an 'absolutely devastating exterminating attack by very heavy bombers from this country upon the Nazi homeland.' When on the night of 24 August 1940 the German air force - the Luftwaffe - accidentally and against Hitler's orders - dropped some bombs over London, the British prime minister requested a retaliatory raid on Berlin. Hitler responded by going ahead with the Blitz, and the following months and years saw tit-for-tat raids on each country's cities.

At the same time, Britain's air force began to realise that its bombers were not able to find and hit specific war targets such as airfields or armament factories. An investigation revealed that just one in five aircraft was succeeding in dropping its bombs within five miles of its target. Under such circumstances, the bombing offensive could only be effective if it was directed at targets as big as cities.

Consequently, in February 1942, Bomber Command was instructed to shift the focus onto the 'morale of the enemy civil population'. This new policy came to be called 'area bombing'.

The aiming points thereafter, for bombing raids, were no longer military or industrial installations, but a church or other significant spot in the centre of industrial towns. And since fire was found to be the most effective means of destroying a town, the bombers now carried mainly incendiary bombs.

Thus, the exigencies of war had rendered the traditional distinction between combatants and non-combatants meaningless. Nearly everybody living in an 'industrial town' was considered to contribute directly or indirectly to the German war effort, and had therefore become a supposedly legitimate target"

and

" While Germany refrained from aerial bombing of British cities after the British declaration of war on Germany in September 1939, Britain started aerial bombing of Germany, officially focusing on military and industrial targets, on the night of 15/16 May with 78 bombers against oil targets, 9 against steelworks and 9 against marshaling yards.[11] Oil remained the main British objective until the summer of 1941."

Poor Packy.
What's your point, all you've done is embarrass yourself even more, the fact that 600,000 Canadians did more and had more of an impact on world war one that 4 million Americans speaks volumes, don't you think

The nation in the most spectacular decline is without doubt the USA, but because you were never that high up to begin with, the speeding fall that America is now going through should be less painfull as you hit the bottom, you barely made even fifty years, what an embarrassment

At the national level, the people are represented by the Riksdag (Swedish parliament) which has legislative power. The Government implements the Riksdag's decisions and draws up proposals for new laws or law amendments.
