Northern Ireland will, if all goes to plan, have its devolved government restored by March 2007.
The “St Andrews Agreement” will include:
- A financial package (ie. they will be given more English taxes)
- The introduction of a Victims Commissioner for Northern Ireland (because 73% of the population being officially designated victims already isn’t enough)
- A permanent secretariat to the British-Irish Council (which doesn’t have a representative for England but does from Westminster, the Scottish Parliament, the Welsh Assembly, the Isle of Man, the Irish Republic, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands)
- Joint commissions with the Irish government (to send out a clear message that NI is part of the UK by letting the RoI make decisions affecting NI)
The agreement won’t give England a devolved government like the rest of the UK has, we have to be discriminated against and subjected to minority rule by the Scottish Raj.
