British colonial students are leaving the north of Ireland

News Letter:

ALARM has been expressed at the low number of Protestant students choosing to attend higher education institutions in Northern Ireland.

Tom Elliott, Ulster Unionist Fermanagh and South Tyrone MLA, said he was shocked to discover just how many more Roman Catholics are staying in the Province to study - suggesting a Protestant brain drain.

As a result of an Assembly question on university students, he discovered that the number of Protestant full-time and part-time students in 2004/2005 was 12,761 compared to 17,207 Roman Catholic students.

And in the year 2005/2006, the number of Protestant students was 13,806 to 18,798 Roman Catholic students.

“These figures show 5,000 more Roman Catholic students each year are studying in Northern Ireland,” said Mr Elliott.

“They clearly illustrate that a large number of Protestant students are choosing to attend universities on the mainland rather than attend universities in Northern Ireland.

“This is an important issue as many of these students who travel to mainland universities do not return to work in the Province, hence the long established debate about the ‘Northern Ireland brain drain’.”

Good riddance to the British colonial scum!

Seeing as no one else ever bothers commenting on your racist rants I thought I would let you know that my wife (Irish Protestant or “British colonial scum” in your narrow foul mind) and I (Irish Catholic, and deeply ashamed of people like you using my nationality and religion for your revolting ends) are returning with our PhD educated brains to the north of Ireland after a 10 year absence (with two children in tow) aiming to work for a brighter future for everyone and to consign bigoted prats like you to history once and for all!

What a surprise! I see by the five hour difference between the time stamp at 4.06 am for a post I sent at 9.06 am that you don't even live in Ireland and you in fact occupy the land belonging to the indigenous people of the eastern Americas! You’re the colonial oppressor you hypocrite!

p.s. I am only anonymous because I can't be bothered registering. My name is Michael

bigoted prats like you

So being against British colonialism in Ireland makes me a bigot? By your definition, Ian Paisley must be the most tolerant man in Ireland.

What makes you think that I support Anglo-Saxon rule in North America?

Disgusting language and a complete lack of tolerance. Whilst so many people work towards peace and acceptance and the promotion of diversity it's disappointing every time I see someone who just wants to use obscenities and demean other cultures.

If you think it's okay to call all protestants scum then you're no better than the supremacism of some Protestants.
