English nationalism at it's worst
"English nationalism at it's worst"

"Aftonbladet's leader board is the independent social democrat."

"BELFAST, In Ireland, everything is surprisingly green, and I become nauseous of looking out through the bussfönstret. I stare intently for a glimpse of something akin to a national border. Getting scammed by a motorvägstull, a boskapsstaket and a couple of the stones on the line."

"When we actually crossed the border to northern Ireland, it is visible only on the signs change from kilometers to miles. And for the first time I see something that is not green."

"In Belfast, the smell of the manure. Maybe that's why all the ladies on the island drowns themselves in perfume? After a couple hours I can feel it in all cases less than longer."

"northern Ireland had their own governance with their associated parliaments of the member states in 2007. It was a part of the end of a 20-year-old conflict between the island's protestants and catholics. The former wanted to belong to the united kingdom, the latter of Ireland. The own parliament gave the northern Ireland more autonomy and freedom. But then a year back, everything has stood still, since the local parties do not succeed in compromising until a government."

"the Parliament is at a height. As in a gangster film, check the security of the trunk before we drive up to the palatial building."

"He worked until the peace"

"Carpeted floor, ugly furniture and poor lighting. To get in on Stephen Farrys office is like taking a step into the real Uk.nFarry is a liberal member of parliament and was involved in the peace negotiations in the 90s. "

"He sits far from me in the british way. I grab my chair and shuffles closer across the carpet."

"He kind looks out, pale and broad, with curly hair and glasses that blend together with the rest of the face. It is something with the british. They look to be on the way to the grocery store to buy white sliced bread no matter how much they dress up."

"we Need a northern irish voice"

"Stephen Farry is upset."

"– It is terribly frustrating to work in a parliament that does not work. Before Brexit really needs to be a unified voice from northern Ireland. We do not have any government shows how bad the situation is, the society here has not been this polarized since the ceasefire in 1994."

"does it Mean that the agreement is not worked?"

" the Agreement in itself was not perfect, but it played no role. The big challenge was to put the peace in practice. After the ceasefire took it the worst violence of the period, but the political divisions was left. Terrorism was replaced by a low intensity violence, " explains Stephen Farry."

"He believes that the polarization caused by meanness."

" People have not been generous in recent years. Both sides only care about their own interests, which means that they do not trust each other. They don't meet, don't interact at all."

"England have to swallow their pride."

"Next week of Europe's heads of government to discuss the situation in brexitförhandlingarna. The british prime minister, Theresa May has not presented any real content since december of last year, and her weak government lost last week even more power to the country's parliament. Above all, she manages to not agree with the EU on a solution for northern Ireland."

"The best of the island would be if England swallowed the pride and blew off the entire exit. The next best thing would be to continue trade with the EU as the former and avoid the sensitive border controls against the republic of Ireland. Such a solution would also benefit the Uk economically. But rational arguments don't bite on a project driven by the sense and revanschlust."

"Theresa May needs to scrap cooperation with the Democratic Unionist Party. To be dependent on the one extreme party in a conflict does not go together with balanced solutions and compromises."

"But so too is the Brexit a crusade in English nationalism. And it is both selfish and reckless."
