You could probably say this about Palestine as well. 75% unemployment certainly doesn't help keep the peace.

I think very few of the cars were sold on the Irish market. Most were sent to the US. I do see the occasional one on the roads over here though and there is even an owner's club. Have yet to see one depart into the stratosphere strangely enough.
I saw one last week when I was walking to my exam centre

Zerodude

The frightening thing is those Starbucks also appeared within like a week of each other. They have also opeend a Quiznos in Botanic. I find that a little sad.

VertigoGal, Northern Ireland is becoming a lot more economically prosperous

hey, it's better than subway. I personally think quiznos subs are much tastier than subways.

At the end of the day the North will always be at a disadvantage geographically. They are seperated from South and dont border Britian, Its bad logic!

If the North couldnt have seen huge gains like the south did then i atribute that fully on Tony Blair and the English gov't. How in God's name did Westminster not relize this and open things up for the north? There are many things that Blair could have done to pick up the steam of the south.

Blaming Blair and Westminister for everything - see this is precisely the problem I would argue.

I know from other posts you have made here that you are a Sinn Fein supporter and you are entitled to your point of view - but since when has Sinn Fein done anything for the ecomony of Northern Ireland?
