Bear in mind most non Irish people are not versed in Irish history so saying something like "IRA supporter" would lead them to think I was supporting the terrorists from the 1970s to 1990s .

That was your intention though.




I think it's likely you're a fan of much more contemporary versions of the RA to be honest.

Well you'll have to find proof of that which you won't find.

But it's the standard slur towards an Irishman from a little Englander. Yes

From the country that invented lazy derogatory names


From Wikipedia.

Quote:
Jock, jocky, jockie
(UK) a Scottish person, Scots language nickname for the personal name John, cognate to the English, Jack. Occasionally used as an insult,[171] but also in respectful reference to elite Scottish, particularly Highland troops, e.g. the 9th (Scottish) Division. Same vein as the English insult for the French, as Frogs. In Ian Rankin's detective novel Tooth and Nail the protagonist - a Scottish detective loaned to the London police - suffers from prejudice by English colleagues who frequently use "Jock" and "Jockland" (Scotland) as terms of insult; the book was based on the author's own experience as a Scot living in London.

I have maybe picked you up wrong by thinking you're inferring they invented the term rather than having latched on to it.

All the English people I know would never leap to this sort of deliberate misidentification, I’ve only heard this type of tactic from the online and angry EDL types. Luckily they are in the minority and are often called out by the majority of good English people.

It's not taken long for the double standards to come out, has it? Nobody supports or gets behinds Toga's outrageous idiocy, least of all English posters who Toga frequently has fallen out with. But you can't say you have any high ground as you've frequently thrown round English slurs, particularly "little Englander" perhaps more than any poster.

Not looking for high ground. Don't want to be seen as a terrorist supporter which I will defend as that's quite serious.

Irrelevant - we can't choose our relations - and it was long ago.

Judge him on his word on here - there's more than enough evidence of his anti English bigotry to be getting on with.

He's only on this thread to take some swipes at the English.

I do. He's an indoctrinated bigot with direct links to the Collins era (assuming he's not Globusing). It's useful to have one in the lab to be honest so I can poke it with sticks and report on the response.

How about threatening the girlfriend of an England player?


https://www.irishmirror.ie/showbiz/cele ... ke-6563904

Quote:
Camilla Kerslake- girlfriend of England Rugby captain Chris Robshaw - has claimed her life has been put in danger thanks to the Rugby World Cup as a backlash against the singer intensifies.

The 27-year-old soprano has seen herself thrust into the spotlight thanks to her relationship with the sport star and as England's Rugby World Cup campaign comes under pressure, she claims the negative attention has become "scary".
Last week Robshaw was blamed for England's catastrophic defeat at Twickenham by Wales, after a last minute decision by the captain to go for an all out victory rather than a draw, which saw them go home losers.

Camilla had already been the victim of online abuse before the match, but speaking to The Sun revealed the attacks have intensified since last Saturday, with disgruntled fans even turning up at their home.

"It's been scary," she told The Sun.

"I've had people outside our house. I don't know how people know where we live, we're just in an ordinary, mid-terrace house in South London."

Admitting there have been "hairy incidents", the situation has become so hellish for the star that a friend now stays with her at the house for protection.




How far down this rabbit hole do you and Toga want to chase your tails?

Give up with the supposed moral superiority act... it makes you look insular, parochial, small minded and nationalist.

I think it's supposed to be - but we've never got excited about things like that. It reflects far more on those using such terms, than it does on us.

I'm sure you'd have a similarly ingenuous attitude if I told you my grandfather was in the Black & Tans.

Come on you lot, let's not tar all the Irish lads with the same brush. Some of them are good eggs - that one whose user name escapes me, for example. The Church of Ireland chap. The one who's made something of himself.

It is a skill that makes this place increasingly shit. Most nations have the odd few posters who give their country a bad name. With the Irish, it is the majority on here who are turd.

It's not taken long for the double standards to come out, has it? Nobody supports or gets behinds Toga's outrageous idiocy, but you can't say you have any high ground as you've frequently thrown round English slurs, particularly "little Englander" perhaps more than any poster.


Not looking for high ground. Don't want to be seen as a terrorist supporter which I will defend as that's quite serious.


No one with a brain remotely believes that. But separate to that your years of English slurs and negative generalisations hardly places you in a position to complain about slurs or go the route of trying to stand on the high ground of complaining about Toga doing the same thing. You seem utterly oblivious you are exactly the same mirror image.

I think this happens regularly. If only PR had developed some sort of term that uniquely describes when such an event happens to a thread.

Are you suggesting I'm obsessed with Irish posters? :lol: You can obviously back this up with proof from my posting history... Or not.

My trolling has gone too far. I will step back and tone it down and let this thread get back to Eddie's unfortunate experience following Scotland's outclassing of England.

English posters. I apologise about the England bashing bit. I was having fun but what I was saying was definitely offensive. Sorry. :thumbup:
