Re: National humiliation in the national interest?!
Mar 10, 2019, 10:14
As ever very witty but not helpful - lines like 'we'll starve the paddies again' are just not funny. My mother was Irish so I guess that makes me half Irish and believe me I have made a point of learning about Irish history at the hands of Britain. I really don't blame the Irish for experiencing a sense of schadenfreude at the mess Britain has got itself in, I've no doubt the Irish sharp wit is being honed at our expense. So be it, I remember the first time I stood up and objected to an Irish joke ... you don't hear those jokes any more. The shoe is on the other foot. As well as being half Irish, I'm also half English and like almost everyone in the UK at the moment, we are bewildered and, when you hear stories about people becoming violent over food shortages, not a little scared. And like most other 'ordinary people' we have stopped expressing our pointless opinions and are waiting, hoping all will be well.
