Belfast is a deeply sectarian City with paramilitary organisations like the UDA, UVF, and IRA controlling the streets and housing estates of most of the place. Suicide, alcoholism, and substance abuse are amongst the highest in the world. Around 30% of the workforce have no paid work and live solely on benefits. Belfast has one of the lowest literacy levels in Europe. It is unique in Europe. Due to the deep and abiding sectarianism, the political statement never changes. There are many decent people trying to survive in the middle of it. Coronavirus and Brexit have greatly damaged the small and weak private sector leaving most people working in the public sector or on benefits. There are however very few problems re parking, traffic, rent or property prices. There is however very little random street violence. (The paramilitary gangs feel it is bad for business, and dispense summary justice to discourage it. There are punishment beatings and shootings every week, often by appointment.) It has overpriced drb pubs and very few night clubs but the restaurants are very good. There are many decent people here trying to better the place but it taks a strng stomach and a sense of humour to survive the place...
