So far, despite many years of violent effort by the IRA and some current pretty sleekit political manoeuvring by Brussels and Dublin, Northern Ireland by virtue a majority vote in a free referendum is still part of the UK.

Can I recommend for poppy free viewing RTE 1 and 2 and TG4 all of which serve the Republic admirably.

Incidentally before criticising BBC Northern Ireland, which you clearly watch, it might be common courtesy first to purchase a licence.

Do you have one Tom?
