Disagree. Why would including Scotland, Wales and NI in an English bid attract any support from other FIFA members- even before you factor in the possibility of that bid getting 4 automatic qualifying places?

As per your second point. The politicking is likely to be WITHIN Britain, to aim for nationwide support for the bid- and maybe broadly the Government.

Quote Maybe they could play games at a refurbished Casement Park, that would go down well with the Windsor brigade...

Current capacities: Windsor 18,000 seats

Casement 0 seats (which may not change- local objections remain and Ulster GAA aren't that bothered about a big new stadium in Belfast)

If the British bid is a goer, it's as likely that either 

a) they'll bend the rules so that a slightly expanded Windsor is allowed in with say 25,000 seats, or

b) NI/ the IFA will get a consolation prize of say a women's or men's youth tournament 

As for the politicking in South America: Paraguay is a large, poor country with limited infrastructure. Uruguay's domestic football is almost exclusively in the capital. Those two with Argentina may simply be unable to run the thing, which clearly increases England/ Britain's chances.

In the event of a United Ireland, I would still want two football teams.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

That would actually be an amazing tournament.

I’d actually rather England go for the 2034 edition, and they are one of the few countries that could potentially make a solo run for it, provided the quality of stadiums is permitted to be varied and that cities with two stadiums or three might be permitted.

Well by 2034 it will probably be a 64 Team Tournament so I'd say they'll relax the hosting criteria by then

If 2030 WC bid is successful, grounds like Old Trafford may not get games as the area around the pitch is too tight....not enough room for photographers etc

That is nonsense. You simply position the photographers in the first few rows of seats or, alternatively, you take the seats out for the duration of the tournament. It is not difficult to do. They took a heap of seats out to put in wheelchair areas over the last few years, to comply with new regulations. It can be done relatively easily.

Yea couldn’t believe when I read it Anfield was mentioned as well. I think the main issue was the run off zone around the pitch doesn’t meet Fifa standards . You’d have to imagine work would be carried out on these stadiums in order to comply. Would be mad having a wood cup in England and not using those stadiums

Is this the reason modern football stadiums are so far from the pitch? I hate that

I always assumed it was to do with the advertising hoardings.
