NI Airport & Ferry Gift Shops are anti British and sectarian

Thousands of us get so angry at those who belittle our claim to be recognised as a separate country to the Republic Of Ireland and rightly so. Most of the problem is the nationalist politicians using terminology such as “The North of Ireland” and “The North”, as it clearly displays their hatred and denial of the TRUTH.

WE ARE NORTHERN IRELAND, PART OF THE UNITED KINGDOM AND CONTINUE TO BE BRITISH NATIONALS, maybe if the hate filled, sectarian bigots in the SDLP and Sinn Fein IRA, would use the PROPER terminology, there would be no issue, but that””s not going to happen such is their detest of the REALITY.

How would South and/or North Korea feel if they weren””t acknowledged as separate countries. Indeed, the South Korean flag was flown at the London Olympics as a NORTH Korean stepped forward for his medal – It nearly became an international issue only for the quick response of the organisers.

Lets find out how Texans would feel if at one of their NFL games, the Mexican National Anthem was played.

Lets ask a Taiwanese, to accept that they are part of China and embrace the inevitability?

Northern Ireland not Ireland

Lets be clear, two days ago, Turkey shot down a Russian drone over it””s airspace, although it is adjacent to Russia, how dare they!!! – NO; they were bloody well right to do so as that Russian drone breached their sovereignty and airspace.

What about Cyprus, are nationalists of the opinion that the Turks should clear off from their half of the island, and leave the Cypriots alone?

Should Israel capitulate and let a rag tag of IRA/Hamas terrorists take over Jerusalem, in hope that they don””t exclude and/or destroy their holy sites?

FACT: Northern Ireland is a country all of it””s own, sharing an island, but separate, with a border with the Republic of Ireland.

Selling Irish goods and souvenirs is one thing thing but when every last vestige of Northern Irelands place within the UK is totally obliterated by a sea of green leprechauns and pro Irish paraphernalia- well thats another matter entirely.

NIs place within the UK obliterated Belfast International

The state of Belfast International Airport is a damning indictment of just how our politicians and NITB have took their eye of the ball and allowed a UK airport to become nothing more than an anti British pro republican airport.

Selling Irish goods and souvenirs is one thing thing but when every last vestige of Northern Irelands place within the UK is totally obliterated by a sea of green leprechauns and pro Irish paraphernalia- well thats another matter entirely.

At a rough guess there are well over 1000 items for sale in this shop and only one mentions Northern Ireland, the other that could be found was a union jack mug. Now surly anyone with an ounce of sense can see the disparity here.

On investigation I was amazed to read some of the statements by those responsible for this republican propaganda shop. Brian Carlin, Director of Commercial Development at the Airport, said of Aelia who owns the store “they have a formidable understanding of our vision for Belfast International” well really Brian just what vision is that then?

Phil Manning, Aelia UK’s Operations Manager said: “It has been a tremendous experience to have shared in the transformation of the passenger experience at Belfast International”. Again what experience is that Phil because from what I can see you are blatantly insulting and demeaning the majority population of Northern Ireland by pretending that we don””””t exist as a people or a country.

An article also says “With a range of products for visitors to Northern Ireland it aims to reflect the spirit of Northern Ireland”. How can they possibly reflect the sprite of Ulster when everything Ulster has been banned from the shelves.

The Northern Ireland Tourist Board also needs to catch its self on, little wonder 3 quarters of the world doesnt know Northern Ireland is its own country when they allow this to happen on there watch.

The Irish Quarter shop is nothing more than pro Irish republicanism doing its dam best to promote everything Irish. Well I have a message for Director John Doran, Aelia Store Manager Michelle Hunter, Aelia UK Managing Director Fin Casey, Aelia International Operations Director Bruno Bouchacourt and Aelia UK Operations Manager Phil Manning, Northern Ireland does exist and its an intragale part of the UK.

John Doran, Michelle Hunter, Fin Casey, Bruno Bouchacourt, Phil Manning,

John Doran, Michelle Hunter, Fin Casey, Bruno Bouchacourt, Phil Manning,

Please stop insulting us and our Britishness, many lay in graves today because they defended this country, not just over the last 40 years but right back to the 1st and 2nd world wars. I hope you up your game and appreciate the jurisdiction in which your store in located because I and many many others feel deeply hurt and discriminated against.

I””m sure the airport and NITB will see this so just to help them out and so they cant say they didnt realise here are our flags and a map clearly showing our boarder. The official title is  The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
