Was It For This?



A ‘location across the UK’!?

We’re a free, independent, proud and strong separate country entirely.

    Ireland is free to join a UK protest. It is also free to join protests in the EU countries. It just depends on what kinds of protests. If you don’t like the look of the protest organisers, or the methods that some of them might be intent on employing, forget it. If you are doubtful about ‘the cause’ leave well alone.

    What tortured minority will antis be comparing themselves to today? So far this week we’ve had Jews murdered in their millions, and Black people abused under apartheid.

    All because you can’t have your pint and a sangwich inside.

      Fair play Daisy. I don’t know where you get the stamina to keep confronting these people on here, Broadsheet is gone to the dogs.
      I can’t believe the abuse they’ve been heaping on you the last few weeks.

      People can’t say fupp or b*** on here, but it seems bullying and personal attacks are fair game??

      BS REPLIES: That’s not true at all, Nilbert and never has been. Our comment filter automatically detects sailor talk but, sadly, not bullying, rudeness or aggression. We deal with it where we spot it but, since our moderator also holds down a full time gig at Lidl, some naughtiness gets through the net. Broadsheet invites you Nilbert – and all commenters – to bring specific examples of bullying (and other types of unacceptable commentary) to our attention (broadsheet@broadsheet.ie).

      Salty language will continue to be replaced with childish euphemisms.

        Nilbert, because there’s nothing the angry, impotent little trolls can say that will affect me – not even the death threat from a couple of days ago, that’s still up as of the timestamp of this post.

        If the lockdown was lifted tomorrow and all further vaccinations called off, the same crowd would still be whinging and angry at something with a whole load of links full of unbelievable batpoopery and woo to back it up.

        fair enough, that’s a decent policy – and thanks for clarifying.

        Its sad to see it, but we are descending into that hyper-aggressive, partisan, ultra-confrontational style of online ‘debate’ usually seen at a Trump really.

        btw, I like the childish euphemisms. perhaps we could also use some Victorian slang?

    Or, for those looking to see what real freedom looks like, join me up at Ballinastoe trail center on Saturday where I’ll be thrashing the bejesus out of my new mountain bike where there’s miles and miles of tracks and trails to roam.

    Saw a livestream of their ilk in London last Saturday, shouting ‘pedi protectors’ at the police blocking their route, all because q told them..

    I, along with my family, will be there. Now is the time to show where you stand on these matters.
    And all of you here with your continuous juvenile comments should hang your heads with shame and saunter into old age voiceless and forever regretting your actions, or lack there of.

    ireland needs to get over itself. the person creating this document has 9 locations that sit nicely on a poster with one website. what do you expect them to do.

    barack obama talked about this new internet user generation that have nothing better to do than take digs (which im doing now)

    ireland needs to accept we are a small country beside a massive well know country. are we so insecure that 70 years after independence we still want to correct people.

    1. John Smith

      One of the two UK organisations involved has replied to me to say that they were not responsible for the production of the poster but they have told the German organisation that produced it that it should read UK and Ireland and they have also stated that ‘UK and Ireland’ will be used in all the promotional materials they send out.

      It is perfectly reasonable for Irish people to be annoyed about the inclusion of Ireland’s capital city as a location in another country – size and insecurity has nothing to do with it.

      “what do you expect them to do.”
      Be accurate. But apparently accuracy isn’t your thing.
