Separate from what?

Shit, I was just editing the title to clarify that, when you posted and blocked me. :)

I meant separate from the Republic or by being in the UK.

Though the present sense might just cover the meaning if we understand "gains" as "is gaining".

The story used to be that the Six Counties would be swamped by Catholicism and reduced to penury if they became part of Ireland.

The North would surely be a basket-case on its own? Already heavily subsidised by the UK govt.

They get to patriciate in the regulation of medicines

That's a great word: patriciate.

Word of the day.
