Thread Name: BS: What have the Irish ever done for us
Subject: RE: BS: What have the Irish ever done for us
The interesting thing is that, apart from the trolling efforts of one of the several anonymous GUESTS who have popped up on this thread (it really gets bloody confusing you obtuse eejits), the tone has been so enthusiastic.

The general pattern with these threads - eg (USA, Dutch, Belgium...)is that the compliments are accompanied by a fair number of sneers and raspberries, and we haven't had those here. I suppose now I've said that, someone is going to leap in to provide them.

As for the troubles and the stuff associated with that, fair enough to raise this, because it's part of the picture. But it is better to see it as part of the picture, the way Ireland puts it, rather than just thrown into the conversation from cover by some faceless wimp.
