    The Union of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland (4 countries) create the United Kingdom or Great Britain, Northern Ireland is not in dispute its a core of the Union, if you even had the slightest clue about what the disputes were about in northern ireland you might not sound so ignorant. as for the FalkLAND Islands they can have independance the day they ask for it not a single drop of blood is required to be spilled and the whole world knows it this is repeated by every administration it is a national policy, they stay British by choice not by force. If they wish to cede to Argentina or become an independant nation they only need to vote for it, but as long as they are loyal british subjects and wish to remain so they will be defended by the british armed forces. Comparing these freedoms of nationality to the oppression and land theft of the palestinians in the west bank and gaza is simply clutching at soggy straws.
