Today he complains:

""To be sure, the cartoonists are no longer as blunt as Punch magazine of a century ago wherein we were always depicted with simian features, shillelaghs and bizarre clothing. Nevertheless, we have received a jolly good thrashing at the hands of the cartoonists.

Inevitably Ulster Protestant males are depicted as evil Orangemen. In one cartoon, four Orangemen - one of them sitting on a large bag marked 'SWAG', another one of them a horse - are interrogating a young boy as to his religion.""

An Orange Man complains about being depicted as an Orangman? Why was he supporting the crap at Twaddel if he is bothered about a depiction of someone " interrogating a young boy as to his religion". The Orange men at Twaddel demand the Protestant right to mach on the Queens highway but do not support the people of Twaddel to march into Belfast city center!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MAD stuff.

Wait, is Chris complaining that the British look down on him as inferior and not quite civilised, referencing how the Irish were depicted in Britain over 100 years ago?

Does he think things would have changed just because he sees himself as British?
News for ya, Chris...

Such AH's can not be normal, how do they get through life 24/7 - 365?

He is finding it hard to accept that he is just another "Mick" to the folk in Londinium!

The DUP have left themselves wide open to this, they were warned.
Lets see what the British people make of them voting to keep the 1%
cap on a pay rise for nurses and firemen.
Sit back and enjoy the ride.

No

Younger piesters mightn't know about the original, with Puritans and Cromwellians asking the question.... any similarity between them and the Dup is of course purely accidental and artistic licence.

Speaking of Orangies, their annual march in Rossnowlagh must be coming up soon. Reminds me we'll need extra staff in the tea shop that day, we're always mad busy the day of the Orange parade.

This is still the best. A double whammy - treating them as alcoholics and also treating them as Irish. The Irish unionists are fuming. :p

Guinness was a Unionist.
Indeed he was and was the firm before it got bought off to some Yankee company. There was discrimination against Catholics in the company until the 1960s.

Interestingly enough though I have read that the owners of Harland and Wolff were "Pro-Empire Home Rulers".
