Your analogy is quite flawed in logic.  Travelling to London from elsewhere in Britain can't be compared in any way to having to travel to DC or Seattle from up to 2000 miles away, or further if in Hawaii.  I think a trip from the southern-most tip of England to the northern-most tip in only 5-600 miles, or so.  I think London is within a 5 or 6 hour drive from anywhere in Britain, and Belfast is the center of tiny little N. Ireland, so little inconvenience to N. Irelanders.
