Is it about time that we stop going on about how those bloody brits caused so much hardship during the potato famine of the 1840's?
Afterall it was irish landowners who turfed the poor peasants of the land and directly profited from their misfortune.
I am sick and tired of us Brits getting smashed round the head over this.
For too long the irish nation has had a chip on their shoulder, they should think of the positives that the famine brought ie emmigration to the new world and a better life.
I dont want to rub in salt into anceient wounds but the myths need to be blown away on this subject.
Listen son. Best thing you can do is maybe get a hold of a Junior Cert history book. Come back to us then sunshine.
