Whilst that's my thinking too, one or two Catholic friends in NI say the younger generation can't be counted upon to be nationalist.

The Kingdom of Great Britain only existed from 1707 until 1801. It was a unitary state created from the permanent joining of two separate states - England and Scotland.

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland came into being in 1801 in a similar way, by the joining of Ireland and Great Britain. Latterly, following partition and a progressive lessening of London’s influence in Irish affairs we find ourselves where we are today, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Without the union between England and Scotland, there is no political entity called Great Britain. A nation state comprising England and Northern Ireland would be the United Kingdom of England and Northern Ireland, if the same naming convention used since the 18th century were followed.

A previous Act of Union, in force from 1536, United England and Wales, but unlike the union with Scotland, Wales’ distinctive legal system was not retained and the new unitary state was not renamed in recognition. From 1536, the nation state called “England” effectively included all the territory of Wales (although the world did not understand nation states in the 16th century in the way we do today).

Re: Brexit-Transitional Period Ends 31/12/20

Sensible move but they will need to differentiate their policies from the other parties.
Quote:
Liberal Democrats are to drop the party’s commitment to UK membership of the EU in a vote at next weekend’s virtual annual conference, The Independent has learnt.

A resolution, agreed by the party’s federal policy committee on the weekend and likely to dismay some activists, does not make rejoining the EU a formal goal.

Instead, the motion commits the party to “keep all options open” for the UK’s future relationship with the 27-nation bloc in the longer term, including the possibility of rejoining “at an appropriate future date to be determined by political circumstances”.

Only took 4 years to recognise the referendum result but that seems the norm.

is hell freezing over a political circumstance.

Re: Brexit-Transitional Period Ends 31/12/20

Having a policy of not rejoining the EU, doesn't preclude having policies that sign up to absolutely everything but actual membership.

Have they changed their policy of us having ALL the rules and costs forced upon us without having a say in them? So much for the "Democratic" in "Liberal Democratic Party".
Are we really meant to believe they wouldn't open the floodgates with freedom of movement? That's just for starters.
