Super. Ireland’s that way, laddie

I do not want to live in a country where the government is the apparent possession of a monarch

Given that Spud has the passport, has a choice of countries, why not choose the one that suits?

  1. I want to live in a country that is governed by those elected to represent the true interest of all its people

    That’s another fucking lie.

  2. Good to see the return of Andrew Dickie in the comments – arguably a commentator even more evil than the Spud himself.

    Steve

    to quote from a workforce in an earlier phase of my life:

    ‘I know he’s lying, his lips are moving’

  3. Indeed, Spud has an Irish passport as well as a UK one.

    The man moans about ‘accidents of birth’ deciding who the monarch is whilst quite happy that an accident of birth (being that he has one Irish grandparent) allows someone who was neither born in Ireland nor has lived there for a single day to have an Irish passport.

    Someone should tell him they have a pot of gold buried at the end of a rainbow and he’ll be off with a shovel like a shot.

  5. OT but I’m somewhat bemused by the discussions going on about whether Saturday’s pro-Pali demonstrations in Central London ( & presumably other cities) should go ahead. The 11th November is probably the nearest the UK has to a national day. Since Brits don’t go in for Independence Days or Constitution Days or whatever. And a particularly British one. Since it’s not glorifying the nation. Just a sober remembering of its past. That it shouldn’t take precedence over other activities, particularly political & forrin, seems inconceivable. Yeah I know the formal ceremonies are on the Sunday. But it’s the day is important. I can’t imagine any other country would even be debating this.

  6. VP –

    My first thought was, he lied in every word,
    That hoary cripple, with malicious eye
    Askance to watch the working of his lie
    On mine, and mouth scarce able to afford
    Suppression of the glee, that pursed and scored
    Its edge, at one more victim gained thereby.

  7. bis, let them have a demonstration on Saturday, just not in or around Parliament Sq., the Cenotaph, Whitehall, Buck House etc. What about Ilford? Or Brixton? Or Southall? Islington maybe? (Stamford Hill or Golders Green probably isn’t a good idea).

    How about a crowdfund….to buy the spud a one way ticket to the emerald isle?

  8. where the government is the apparent possession of a monarch
    Better than a government’s a wholly owned subsidiary of a bunch of terrorists.

  9. In Canada Remembrance Day is a statutory holiday. As is my custom with a naval heritage I’ll be at a beach taking part in a ceremony organised by the local yacht club which is conducted from boats and wreaths are laid in the water.

  10. British Columbia changed the law to stop changing the clocks 4 years ago (a survey had 90%+ support for stoppjng) , it has still not been implemented as the bureaucrats say we have to wait for Western US to also do the same, does make you wonder who is running things.

  11. “the government is the apparent possession of a monarch”

    Perhaps he should read about the Civil War and learn what things really mean rather than relying on vague impressions.

    @Martin Near The M25 – “Someone should tell him they have a pot of gold buried at the end of a rainbow and he’ll be off with a shovel like a shot.”

    That’s not the socialist way. He’d merely be saying that it was essential to society that other people go and fetch the gold and bring it to him for fair distribution to reduce inequality.

  12. You’re reminding me of good old Bjelke who refused to change the clocks in Queensland when the evil southern monsters decided to introduce Daylight Saving Time. It was argued that he was afraid the cows wouldn’t know when to give their milk.

    Even though loathsome Labor has been in power in Queensland for a while, they’ve still not had the guts to force that crap down our throats.

  13. Well BiS,
    Remembrance Sunday, and the 11th, are not quite the communal British dates they once were.

    The 11th is especially awkward as it’s derived from WW1, and an increasing % of the population don’t take kindly to having the Ottoman collapse shoved in their faces. Worse, Israel couldn’t have happened without WW1 and WW2.

    I can’t see this state of affairs getting any better, can you?

  14. Of course Jack C, if the Ottomans had had the good sense to stay out of WW1, they’d be ruling Palestine yet.

    But I understand they felt that the wicked British had stolen their battleships. So when Kaiser Bill offered them the Goeben and the Breslau, they agreed to the deal.

    I am guessing the Irish Accountancy authorities might have rumbled his fraudulent qualificiations and although I am told Ireland is rather different from when I was last there a decade ago, a penchant for getting banned from the pub isn’t likely to endear him over there….
