In "Ulster" it shows no sign of dying.  "Ulster is British" corresponds to
"Algerie Francaise".  If you wore a T-shirt saying "Ulster is Irish" outside
the kind of ghetto I live in, you would not get back alive.

the British withdrawal their abstract theories confidently a priori
predicted.  Nobody came up with any.  Even New Sinn Fein sees none.
