Thank you, I have seen/heard that before and it is shocking every time. One of my best books is 'Star of the Sea' by Joseph O'Connor which was an education for me. I took my mother to Cobh while she was still alive and we paid our respects to those starving people who sailed from Cork Harbour. Anyone, anyone who has knowledge of the Irish Famine would feel rage at the British Government of the day but it is you who is raising the spectre of the Irish Famine - I have heard food shortages discussed but as yet not in respect to Ireland. I'm not going to get into a further dispute with you over this because its just reinforcing the awful shouty hostility that prevails at present. Like I said in my earlier post I am watching (yes, I do follow the news - thank you for implying I'm an uninformed thickie) waiting, and hoping to whatever grumpy god is out there it gets resolved soon.
