Do the Irish feel shame about WW2?

Post by Derwyn »

Do the Irish feel any shame about their cowardice from 1939-45?

When you chose to look away from the Nazi atrocities, Britain fronted up and stood tall. For many years, alone.

Yeah, they are.

It's sign you've been pretty completely arsewhipped when you launch a copycat thread like this, though.

Which a load of revisionist bollix.

This is what britain thought of Germany before the war. Is that what you mean by standing tall?

Ireland actually boycotted those games.

It's a terrible shame.

I think we need some sort of signage on certain threads, something like:

No Gogs
No DACs
No Irish

Was there something else happening during The Emergency? Lucky that we had the Long Fellow to mind us.

When the term 'standing tall' is used, it is quite obviously measuring somebodies height as is clear by all the players in the pic. It is also a fact that Ireland did not boycott those games, they just had absolutely nobody who could play football - funny how history repeats itself with the current Irish performances.

But did they send any water with those fire engines? No. None. Absolutely useless vehicles they were as a result. And you camouflaged the feckers green on purpose, so that nobody could find them.

Irish poster (if indeed he is an irish poster, who knows these days with the shannanigans going on within the IP community) purposely trolls the British with a thread

British poster trolls Irish in response and people get upset. Classic.
