There's the penguins too.

#6 the US and EU would stop any attempt to invade Ireland. The Russians might help out too.

Better to tax the wealthy.

It wouldn't be an invasion if we sold NI to them.

We could sell it to them on the climate, it never stops raining so it must be great for growing rice.

Sheep power
