    West Brit Cartographer's In Mapping Scandal

    Mexicant mapmakers have struck a telling blow in the post conflict cultural war, as the folk song goes ''who's in Londonderry, Derry, Maiden, Stroke city, Dodge''...

    The Constituency Commission, appointed by the Irish government last month, used the official name ‘Londonderry’ rather than ‘Derry’ on a map of Ireland, provoking anger amongst members of the Seanad (Senate).
    Donegal Fianna Fail Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill said he was shocked by the use of the term ‘Londonderry’ on the map. “I was taken aback by the recent Constituency Commission report which showed the city of Derry as Londonderry on its map. This was done by a government agency here,” he said. “That should be addressed and should never, ever be allowed to happen again, when it is paid for by the Irish taxpayer.” His Westmeath-based party colleague Aidan Davitt went further still, commenting that the use of ‘Londonderry’ on the state agency’s map was “scandalous”.


    Of course the rabid Failing Fallers failed to consider that there is more than wan point of view...

    “It actually reflects badly on the individuals, who have really let themselves down with being so concerned about the name Londonderry on a map. “It shows that some people do have some way to go in terms of respecting not only Northern Ireland as a country but also the counties within it.

    I'm not sure which is sillier, insisting on putting London in front of Derry or insisting it be removed.

    Brian O'Domhnaill? Wasn't that the twat that was done for expenses and drink-driving and then claimed he was not getting due process because the case would not be carried out through Irish.

    That guy knows every FF stroke in the book. Bi-locatory expenses, raising Irish language hares to delay the judicial process. You name it.
