    Perhaps if he had lived longer he would have matched your contribution to the language?

    I do share the deep regret that he was killed. It would have been brilliant if he had have lived.

    If he had lived, he wouldn’t have become the hero he’s become but, rather, a conservative old man like Dev.

    all of our heroes from history( P Pearse, Collins, Connolly e.t.c) were staunch nationalists who loved the Irish culture, nation and race. They would be the ones supporting parties like The National Party and II today

    It depends on the type of British state.

    NEVER under a monarchy.

    If 50% of the population of the UK would be Irish speaking then yeah I'd also be for it.

    I find meself in agreement with ya a lot of the time. . . . But we part company on this one.

    The French had the right idea with that shower of parasites. The perpetuation of Monarchy (even a docile one like the Brits have) rots a society. Its an institutionalisation of elitism, privilege and patronage.

    It has to go before anything else is considered.
