Rolling thread for when the Brits are at it again

So wait, according to Heffer Leo is both Sinn Fein’s stooge and the EU’s patsy? Fucking lash out in another couple of directions, Simon, I don’t think you’ve quite done the compass yet

Probably isn’t an aim there at all, just a classic case of the Brits being at it. Again.

they’re all in the Telegraph so very much aimed at a UK audience but they haven’t realised Ireland can see

Aye, I’m out of my depth on the historical accuracy thing to be honest. I guess I just can’t be doing with journalists throwing in suggestions of ancient relevance when very recent history is so raw and infinitely more impactful.

I think these articles are just making me more Irish. BRB, going to relearn the Irish language.

All I’m seeing here are excellent reasons for why we, the Brits, should leave the good people of Ireland the fuck alone. I have a history degree which, while it is generally a prerequisite for writing for absolute shite like the Spectator, actually is intended to enable you to analyse events and develop plausible narratives. I HAVE NO IDEA HOW YOU GET TO THIS FUCKING POINT. It’s actually making me really, really angry how these arseholes are treating the history of British oppression of other nations. There’s a fucking shit load of evidence of how this patrician BULLSHIT is completely wrong. Are they fucking aliens? How could you possibly vote for anyone whose views aligned with this sort of shit?

At tv in laws at the weekend I was treated to a big moan about a man in Belfast who got 10,000 quid compensation because he said there was a picture in the Queen in his office and he was offended by it.

I did the usual ‘oh that sounds bad, the world today eh, was it in the daily mail??’ :smirk:

Then I just googled today and now I don’t k ow what to believe

Not even sure who’s at it again here tbf, apart from the lad who has absolutely mugged off some idiots and laughing all the way to the bank (of Ireland)

Genuinely gutted I didn’t think of it first tbh, if I’d known complaining about pictures of the Queen could net you a cool 10k I’d have looked for a job at the NIO a long time ago

Surely putting Cromwell’s head on a stick is one of the few things we can agree with the royal family on. I’m definitely no royalist, but come on lads.

Not entirely sure what your point is (as I am not Morrissey, nor do I think I’m taking up any particular positions that agree with him) - I do agree with that though.

Just joking pal, sorry, wasn’t meant personally.

I’m sure one thing we can all agree on is that Morrissey is a horrendous penguin’s bumpimple.
