Hestia Posted April 8, 2021 Share Posted April 8, 2021 Over the last week or so, violence has erupted in Northern Ireland. Here's a small article below from Bloomberg, and it seems that the majority of the violence at the moment is loyalist/unionist inspired by what outlets are reporting. Relations between Sinn Fein and the DUP have somehow gotten even worse, but more importantly, smaller parties in the Stormont like Alliance are lashing out at the DUP as well (Alliance is a cross-community party, the only one really). Brexit injected a lot of unease into the area...we can only hope it gets better from here. I don't claim to know the intricacies of the Protocol vs the Good Friday Agreement, but something has changed for this to all of a sudden be a problem once again. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-04-07/u-k-s-johnson-deeply-concerned-by-northern-ireland-violence Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
