    The NIR 450 class trains known as the castle class trains for Northern Ireland, should they have been sold to England?

    Favorite Answer:

    That is a bizarre proposition. The NIR class 450 stock was built in the late 1980's and was not really new then, as it was built using salvaged underframes from old BR Mk1 coaches and refurbished engines and traction motors taken from scrapped NIR class 70 stock. Hence a lot of the parts of the trains actually dated back to the 1960's. 

    Leaving aside the issue of Northern Ireland having a different gauge from England, the idea of 'wealthy people' being attracted to 'luxury' journeys on what amounts to worn out outer suburban multiple units seems unlikely, even if the stock was regauged and allowed to run on the West Coast Mainline (which it would not be as it would cause lots of delays due to being a lot slower than modern trains).

    I think Northern Ireland should be reunited with the Republic of Ireland and Scotland should be given their independence?

    And with Wales they should be given a referendum on Welsh independence, I feel let down by the loyalist community of Northern Ireland, as an Englishman they always had my support, I even gave money to the Loyalist Prisoners Association but I suffered extreme anglophobia from the Loyalist community which really shocked me as I thought they were allies with the Mainland British Nationalist Organisations, I could understand anglophobia from the Catholic community as they're honest about their hatred for us, but the fact it came from people who advertised themselves as loyal to us just felt like a knife in the back. As with Scottish Independence, I'm tired of hearing them moaning and I don't want England to be financially supported a country of ungrateful heroin addicts. As for the Welsh if they wish to remain friends with England I'm more than happy for them to, but if they wish to follow the two other Celtic countries into independence then I will let them go, the says of the Anglo Saxon being oppressed will be no more if I was to get in charge.

    How would would blacks or Pakistanis cope in Belfast in Orange Day?

    Favorite Answer:

    They should probably do the same thing as anyone else who isn't a part of it ( steer clear of it ), because if you dont then your a potential target, because while many just do their march, play their flutes etc..there is a sizable minority actually looking to stir up trouble.I got stuck in traffic due to a march here in Glasgow last year with a Filipino friend and it did feel a bit uncomfortable, there was some stares.

    whats the city of Belfast like?

    Favorite Answer:

    It is small, more like a town, so easy to get around and see more, ovrer the last decade there has been lots of building and you will now find many of the shops you find in other UK cities, however there are far more independant small retailers than you would find in many cities. It is clean, friendly and if you travel to Belfast take a tour so you see lots of the 'touristy' places that way you will see and learn far more.

    Touist buses from the 'blackman' https://www.alllaw.com/articles/nolo/us-immigratio... or use one of the black cab taxis who will take you to more places and will be cheaper and they are the most polite road users in the whole of the UK
