The British Legion are on our streets because the IRA were defeated and the vast majority of the irish people welcome them and that will always be the case.
Ihope that answers your question Pa.
The fact that we have an independent state with our own Head of State means the British Army and their British Legion and their Black and Tans lost in 1921. And the fact that Britain ceded some of its sovereignty over the North in the Good Friday Agreement means that the gung-ho militarists of the British Crown Forces lost the argument after the ceasefire.

Get over it, Joe. Go back to your dig in Gortdroma.

I won't be going anywhere Pa,we do have an independent state now that the fascist SF/IRA have been defeated.

It is not so long ago that SF/IRA did not recognise the forces of law in the Republic and in Northern Ireland and now they are implementing laws in the North and are part of a government that are jailing those for the same illegal acts that they themselves carried out before they were defeated.
The only gung-ho militarists that worried me were the the IRA and Ireland is a better place since their defeat.

another glimpse at the inclusive society which the SF/ PIRA would wish to build. Remember back in the day that the republicans blew up the monument in Pery Square once but it was rebuilt with generous local subscriptions.
I must say that Frankie is looking very well there with the relics of the empire.

Personally, I'd rather donate to the donkey sanctuary in county Limerick that be supporting lads who thought it was great sport terrorising the natives is in Afganhistan, Iraq etc :). Why are the Royal British Legion begging on our streets anyway, surely they have received pensions from the British Army!
It is about democracy Pa,people can wear whatever they want on their lapels as long as its legal,even the symbol of fascism used by SF is legal.

Irish people fought in the wars in large numbers and many were proud to do so.
That fact may not suit Sinn Fein/IRA and perhaps the defeat of fascism and the fall of Hitler and Nazi Germany may not have been the outcome SF/IRA wanted.
Royal visits,articles 2 and 3 banished from the statute books,Armani Gerry sucking up to the DUP and SF MPS trousering wads of expenses from the Crown must be driving you mad Pa.

At least the party kept the name,while happily abandoning all claims to the 4th green field,a couple of bank jobs to pension off the remaining handful of "volunteers" and pay for the first class flights,Armani suits and fund a few election campaigns in the south in a desperate attempt to get into government with whoever will have them.
Is it any wonder you are bitter Pa? for are you not mourning the death of a dream and the birth of the greatest uturn in history.

The streets are there for all to use and while you may be sickened by the sight of those wearing the poppy there are many who take a contrary view and reject the SF/IRA jingoism.

yet you are a member of a party, which is in goverment, some of its ministers have not signed up to the belfast agreement, if just a small number of them did return from their grave, you would not be meandering up and down to parnell st, instead you would be under the table if not under the bed

Returning from graves! will you grow up and get a bit of sense.

Everyone to their own taste but there's something pathetic about collecting money for a foreign army.

Then again, there is a tradition of doffing the cap to their perceived betters and turning on their own among certain members of self-styled socialist parties.

Everyone knows the money from poppy day goes to a charity for servicemen and ex-servicemen and as there were many from Ireland who served in the wars I welcome the fact that money is collected for the very worthwhile charity here and I have no problem with the wearing of the poppy.

I always had a problem with illegal armies and though I do not always agree with decisions made by governments with regard to the deployment of troops I recognise that armies are necessary and I do not see anything wrong with contributing to charities that help to provide any help that might be required by those brave enough to to face all kinds of danger in defence of democracy.

Are you referring to SF and their sharing power in Northern Ireland with right wing Tories,without SF having any power at all?

The Mayor of Limerick and now the Longford County Mayor. The ethics watchdog SIPO has found that Tim Caffrey has breached ethics law. €245, 000 State loan acquired under dodgy circumstances from Hogan's Department. The taxic batton of corruption just seems to go on and on. A report has been sent to Howlin and Kelly.

All quiet.

No word on the result of the Garda investigation. Perhaps o'Dea used his brother-in-law Cllr James Collins' connection to Inspector McDonagh at Roxboro Garda station again.

Looks like the ploy of saying nothing and waiting for people to get distracted is working.

What is this Stringjack guy up to---the thread was pulled with no notice to any of the posters--Icontributed to it but got no notice that my posts were being obliterated or why.
The Irish Times were not intimitated into pulling their article from their website--is there no appeal against this type of censorship?
lookit Stringjack is known to be a trigger happy mod who likes to please his clientele...

This thread is what really annoys the Political class. In the past this sort of news story would have been dead and buried. One can see now why Politicians want to censor the internet, which is currently been championed by the Labour parties Lorraine higgins, under the guise of bullying.
