VIDEO: What if... the British ruled Ireland?

Satirical video proposes Ireland give back the reins of power to the UK. Well, sort of. What do you think of the short film?

VOTING IS CLOSED on this video, A Kingdom Once Again, made for the RTÉ Storyland competition. But considering the events of the past week, we’re interested to know what you think of the central premise: That the Irish state hasn’t done a great job since independence.

(And, no, that’s not really Enda Kenny proposing a return to British rule on the next anniversary of the 1916 Rising. It’s the voice of Mario Rosenstock). What do you think of it?
