12:22 pm
peace with itself for decades divided the walls and fences separating the 2 communities remain it's like a patient never quite sure if they're recovering from a terminal illness but now they have something in common the irish republican side of belfast always hated rex it's the pro british side though supported it until boris johnson came along with a plan to partly divide the northern irish economy from the rest of the u.k. with the trade board in the sea his former allies here see that as a betrayal of the foundation of the united kingdom people are very angry about it people are do not support what he is proposing certainly i think he has underestimated the strength of feeling across unionism in northern ireland where you know we fairly clearly and people on the bryan ferry really cherish being part of this united kingdom being a full part of the united kingdom and if that's what your friends think then what about your enemies this neighborhood of belfast has no murals no symbols of the sectarian divide it is middle class and successful and doesn't like bricks it's in

any form it is in places like this that the unionists hold over northern ireland is most at risk i think race it has clearly transcended the constitutional question that's not to say that conversation isn't still alive and people don't still have their strong views but yes i think you are seeing people who are prioritizing bragg's it rather than their views on the union or are should really because it is a clear and present danger to yours. politics and or knowledge has never been like the rest of the u.k. people don't argue about whether they're socialist or conservative left wing or right wing but much more as to whether they see themselves as irish or see themselves as british but what's remarkable is our political shades of all opinion from the most staunchly loyalists to the most republican are united against boris johnson's version the brick says and so opinions a shifting of the university we spoke to students from the unionist community
12:24 pm
bricks it has changed the way that they and many others think and how they will vote in this election and there's a lot of unionists that i know within my own community they have voiced they seem as if there was another referendum tomorrow and it was either to remain and part of the e.u. or to leave as far as johnson's date we would for germany and for northern ireland to the press and stay with the u.k. as well and within a year has done so much for the peace process and a lot of our funding for transport has all come from the european union to the untrained eye belfast looks like anywhere else but it isn't and both the police and politicians are warning of the potential for civil unrest for northern ireland boris johnson's mantra of getting bricks it done has trouble written all over it largely al-jazeera belfast. a former british police chief has been cleared of the manslaughter of 95 people at a football match 30 years ago david duncan field was in charge of policing the
