  1. I'm sure it was only a slip-up but Ulster is not British. It's only the six counties that make up Northern Ireland that are British.

    • Paul,

      My apologies – I meant six of the nine counties of Ulster so thank you for thr correction. And indeed the Britishness as practised in those six counties is not the same as you’d find in Liverpool for example.

      There are shades and strains of being British and Northern Ireland has its own unique kind of Britishness, because it is Irish too. So it might even be more accurate to say that the six counties is British by politics, partly British, partly Irish in culture, partly British and Irish in personality and wholly Irish in Geography,
