Maybe you and Busy could have a special thread to yourselves. I'm sure if you both promised to stay there I'm sure we'd all promise to leave you there alone.@DaManBugs - did Irish independence really benefit the Irish working class man in any way?
Is the RoI today really any different from the UK?
They don't even have an NHS system.
To me, the whole thing seems pointless. Just another way to create layers of bureaucracy and more jobs for politicians.
Nationalism and patriotism has often been used to distract the working class from socialism.
The aristocracy convinces the working man to wave his little flag and doff his cap; to fight another foreign worker, rather than resist the aristocracy who exploits him.
Doesn't matter if the worker is waving an Irish tricolour in South Armagh or a Union Jack in the trenches. He's still been fooled.
