That's right, AmericaTheFatherland, I challenge you! Let's debate over this! I'll start off:
Ireland and the UK are sovereign entities that want to stay independent. Ireland wants to stay independent as a sovereign entity. After all the british did to the irish!

Well, let's start off:
Ireland and the UK do NOT want to join together again. The irish and british are ethnically related but not the same. Their religions are not even the same! And all the things that the english have done to their brothers! Scotland fought a war once for independence, and it had a referendum for independence, obvious signs of separation. Their cultures are not the same, and if Ireland joins, the unfair queen and her parliament will say no for an irish representation in the parliament. Just like Scotland and Wales. Also, England is unfair. England is taking the SCOTTISH oil for themselves for profit, leaving NO profit at all for Scotland. England just wants resources from the other kingdoms they dominate.

Well, if you look into the census, you'll see millions of Britons have Irish ancestry. The Irish fought for the Queen in WW1 and WW2 and faced hostility by their countrymen. Irish, English, Scots are genetically one people according this article right here (http://www.nytimes.com...)

You can't change science, biology, geography, nor the past. The article may be 7 years ago, but it speaks the truth.

The nationalists hate Britain. Just as the want to Northern Ireland to be independent from Britain, a minority want the Republic of Ireland to rejoin the UK. Irish immigration to England is skyrocketing, why? I don't know. Ask an English Irishman why he immigrated, and he'll tell you why. You can never change the ties these two nations have. Culturally related, socially related, economically related, and trade related except they are divided by politics. The hate of dissident Irish republicans will never rule of Ireland. End Republican rule in Ireland.
