Ireland BS: The Irish Peace Process (294* d) RE: BS: The Irish Peace Process 17 Mar 09

Sorry must apologise to Mr Vincent for thinking he was someone else.

I have to ask though what are you on about, we are not being asked to compare and contrast, nor give an academical dissertation as we reply to people who use the same literary tactic that I use and yet you do not castigate them in the same manner.

In general when people discuss topics they base their replies on their own experience and cut and paste is not my style never has been since it was made aware to me that it is frowned upon.

What I have done is back up my views and opinions with facts where possible and with first hand experience of what it is like to live in N.Ireland,are you able to do so?

You see the St Patricks day business as a party maybe an excuse to get drunk, whereas the real followers of St Patrick see this as a time of remembering our Holy Saint.

Which Sir does not start nor end in drunkenness and the false sentimentality and patronizing that it brings about of which your post seems a prime example.

We have another example of the hijacking of this religious celebration with alcohol,is the rioting in the HolyLands area by students, who like some use this as an excuse to get drunk and over emotional. Do try to keep an excuse to get drunk as far from the celebration of our Holy Saints as possible please and maybe some people may not look as hypocritical as they do.

BTW how should I explain to you that the thugs who rioted in Lurgan caused the St Patrick's Day celebration, held for children, to be canceled out of fear for children's safety and well being,using your standard you set out.

Would I really need to compare and contrast and be "neutral" or just say thugs ruined an annual religious event for children.
