Our government is heading for fascism

Ireland wasn’t

The Irish weren’t

He really should try reading up a bit about the blueshirts and Fine Gael…..

  1. The Irish state imagined by De Valera was very much a kinder, kirche, kuche country, and they wasted 70+ years on the project when they could have prospered as part of the UK.

    I think Scotland is going to become fascist-lite if they go independent. People with money will come rushing south.

  2. *Extra chips*

    Ritchie’s calm and measured response to Kelvin McKenzie of the super soaraway Sun making some off-the-cuff remarks about Johnny Foreigner:

    The war of hate has begun

    Sounds metal af. And much better than that stupid war of love we had previously.

    And maybe worse, this seems to me to incite racial tension. A stereotypical racist attack has been raised on the basis of a falsehood. I have reported the tweet to Twitter.

    This is exactly what I’d expect from a red-faced, whisky-breathed, leprechaun-bothering, semi-sentient potato who overcharges for driveway paving.

  3. “…but they’re not all good.”

    Sinn Fein 1980: Ireland for the Irish! Brits out!

    Sinn Fein 2020: We’d like to welcome our new third-world friends! Please be kind to us!

  4. Obviously calling everyone who disagrees with him a fascist is his new go to word replacing neocon etc. I thought he’d be happy if the uk turned into a fascist dictatorship what with his experience of the camps.

  5. So Much For Subtlety

    Jonathan December 14, 2020 at 2:58 pm – “Didn’t a couple of thousand potato respecters go and fight for Franco?”

    So they are not all bad then.

  6. ” The (few) Sikhs I know seem to be decent hard-working folk.”

    They only appear that way:

    Air India Flight 182 was an Air India flight operating on the Montreal–London–Delhi route. On 23 June 1985 it was operated using Boeing 747-237B registered VT-EFO. It disintegrated in midair en route from Montreal to London, at an altitude of 31,000 feet (9,400 m) over the Atlantic Ocean, as a result of the explosion from a bomb planted by Canadian Sikh extremists

    Hundreds of Sikh demonstrators protested outside a Birmingham theatre against a play depicting sex abuse and murder in a temple.

    Five police officers were hurt during struggles at Birmingham’s Repertory Theatre on Saturday night.
