You just can’t do it can you?
You just can’t admit you are wrong
Mummy’s little soldier never could do wrong

I think out of all this we all feel sorry for your wife

Either some day you will think of her as often as you think of me

Or the poor woman will have to live with someone who can’t admit he is wrong

Either way she has our sympathy

Good to see that Flegory isn't a racist.

https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland ... 5y0BxWsfpY

The DUP MP Gregory Campbell has refused to apologise for comments made in a controversial Facebook post in which he described the number of black people on an episode of the television programme Songs of Praise as the “BBC at its BLM [Black Lives Matter] worst”.

Anti-racism campaigners and politicians in the North have called on Mr Campbell to apologise for the remarks, which the North West Migrants Forum described as “race-baiting” and “deeply irresponsible”. Sinn Féin has said it will report his comments to the House of Commons standards commissioner.

Mr Campbell, who is the MP for East Derry, told the BBC’s Evening Extra programme on Monday that the outcry over the remarks was a “contrived controversy” which had resulted in “the vilest of abuse” towards him.

He defended his remarks, saying that “if I have caused offence by stating the obvious, by stating something that is irrefutable, that the BBC are committed to reflecting the diversity of the UK and they didn’t on that occasion, and no one can say that they did, why would I apologise for something that is correct and accurate?”

“No, I don’t apologise. I’m anti-racist, do I apologise for that? No. I stand with a black footballer who refuses to take the knee,” Mr Campbell said, adding that he was “a committed anti-racist” and he did not need a “contrived controversy to turn me into an anti-racist, I have always been so”

Sensational article in the IT delivering some very necessary home truths:
Ulster unionist opposition to inclusion in an all-Ireland state was fully vindicated by the policies adopted by the Dublin government. From the outset WT Cosgrave strove to bring about the “Gaelicization… of our whole culture”; Irish was declared to be the national language of the Free State in its 1922 constitution. De Valera said repeatedly that its “restoration” was a “more urgent national issue than partition”; he was convinced that “Irish nationality would wither if [its]… revival failed.”

The southern leaders also set about constructing a confessional, Catholic state. Cosgrave’s government, and its successors, farmed out core responsibilities to the Church, particularly in health and education. It was a policy which its current Taoiseach has had good reason deeply to regret. In his 1937 Constitution, de Valera endowed the Catholic Church with a “special position” (Article 44), though fully aware that this would hinder Irish unity.

Moreover, Catholic moral values were all pervasive: divorce was not permitted, birth control outlawed, literature advocating contraception banned and films and books censored, so rendering “independent Ireland an object of international ridicule for the next forty years”.

A number of its other policies were equally anathema to unionists; it precipitated a trade war with Britain, 1932-38, and it adopted a position of neutrality during the second World War.

Furthermore, between 1919-23, Protestants in the South were subjected to intimidation, vicious attacks, sectarian murder (as in the Bandon Valley, April 1922) and the burning of “big houses”. All of this resulted in an accelerating exodus of up to 48,000 of them between 1911 and 1926. Those who opted to remain post-independence had to endure further violent outrages in 1935; legislation intended to create a theocratic state; the Ne Temere decree which applied the Church’s canon law to mixed marriages and the compulsory learning of Irish throughout the school system.

They were enclosed within a society dominated by a nationalist understanding of history, and in which there was an identification of being authentically Irish with being Catholic. Arguably, despite the recent modernisation of the state, a residual latent Anglophobia has remained.
