    Irish vitriol against the British: Documenting Thread

    Fintan O'Toole is peddling anglophobia in The Guardian (I know, Quelle Surprise). His target? Heroic Brexiteers attempting to implement the clear democratic will of the British people.

    https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...-brexit-idiocy

    I won't bore you with Fintan's mountainous verbiage. Let's just extract some of the words he uses.

    "idiocy...stupidity..sheer incompetence ...reckless arrogance".

    Is this how we speak to our friends? This thread is opened so you can post links, quotes and articles wherein the British are demonised for implementing their democratic will. It would be good to have a source thread to document such attacks so as to remember who our friends are, should we ever go crawling to the UK for support as we did after the financial crisis.

    Please contribute such examples where you find them. I expect them to increase in ferocity over the coming weeks.

    And if you cannot stay respectful, go fück yourself Fintan.

    What question were the people asked? Were they asked if they wanted to leave the EU?

    Were they asked if they wanted to leave the customs union/single market?

    Countries don't have friends. They have interests.

    Some people are so naive or they can't comprehend that simple fact.

    You are one of those people.

    Ah yes, I was waiting for this thread to appear. Typical donning of the hat paddywhackery "nothing to see here" "sure we're as bad to be sure to be sure".

    The Anglo-Irish cold war only ended with the GFA and lasted for most of a century.

    Any similarities that presents the notion of friendly nations was only ever superficial.

    Yep... and the Brits are proving that without doubt via their Brexit shambles.

    Fintan's article isn't particularly harsh imo... not considering how much of it is 100% bang on...

    He could have been a lot harsher and justifiably so...

    The OP'er should really grow a thicker skin...
