Belfast Brain Drain Spawns Best. Acronym. Ever.

Belfast's best young loyalist minds are skipping town for better jobs in the British Isles.
The phenomenon is so striking that it has its own acronym - Nipples - signifying: "Northern Ireland Protestant Professionals Living in England and Scotland." The Catholic working class has, meanwhile, become much better plugged in to the education system, though it has not received any huge benefit from any peace dividend. The peace process has produced no high-profile factories, for example.
Read the rest in the Belfast Telegraph if you'd like, though it's a paper I read only for the acronyms.
