I DO not know what Brian Cathcart is trying to read into the difference between purchases in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. He says 'the differences between the two lists are symptoms of something deeper'.

I suspect that a similar exercise conducted within England, comparing the North and the South, would show the same sort of differences - symptoms of something deeper?
