Personnel Tick-Box: Taig or Hun?

Good post from Squandertwo (via Harry) who says that all companies with Northern Irish offices are obliged to keep a database of their employees' "perceived religion". Being Norn Irn, there are only two possible options.

Quotes:

"This enforced group identity is increasing resentment — just as Sinn Fein
want it to — but don't expect Whitehall to notice."

"My Muslim colleague reckons she must be a Protestant because she lives in
Lisburn."

As Newton Emerson says, "Make History History".

Postscipt - also from Portdown News: the prod / Hun tag is causing confusion.
