It's trite isn't it? And in the wrong forum, surely? What you mean is it's trite to you! Most people in the South (me included) can only guess what people in the Six Counties have had to live through (on both sides). If someone feels better calling the place Derry L...

I would vote for the prefix
"Don't-really-give-a-fuck-because-there-are-more-important-things-that-threaten-our-extistence-as-a-species-than-names"

6 votes. I love Irish democracy. Aside from that overpowering display I think we have more important things to improve on, namely how we raise our kids. Some people's politics are another people's religions and never should meet. Tackle the lies bred first by RC, COI, Presbys, Baptists etc etc etc e...
