    As a petty small man with no life who has to believe in something bigger than myself and found acceptance in a small group of unemployable hardcore nationalist that drink with me , this deeply upsets me. Traitors!! Traitors!!

    What about bringing back all the remains of the Irish who were
    interred and hidden away by the Empire on the the foreign fields

    by the ruling class of the British in pursuit of their dream of Empire:
    Next time round will we have a tin replica of the Black & Tans…?
