Those Nasty Brits Name Irish World's Friendliest

Wed Oct 17, 2007 4:46 pm

http://itn.co.uk/news/c093630438554e69c30fcea4462ada39.html

I object to this in the strongest possible terms. The Lonely Planet is a British publication, and this is nothing more than another attempt by those dastardly Brits to do us down.

For centuries they ate our newborn alive and fed the leftovers to pigs; in more recent times they have tried to poison our pristine, azure sea with nuclear waste, and our airwaves with such horrors as Big Brother, the X-Factor, Cliff Richard and Cilla Black.

They use our beautiful, unspoilt country to shield themselves from the worst excesses of Atlantic weather. They try to brainwash us by flooding us with the News of the World, The Sun, OK! and Hello! They have inflicted on us atrocities such as Tesco, HMV, B&Q and Ratners. Our city streets are not safe to walk at night, teeming as they are with chav stag and hen parties from Birmingham and Luton.

They have robbed us of our intellectual giants such as Terry Wogan, Bob Geldof, Shane McGowan, Roy Keane, Boyzone, Westlife and Louis Walsh. And I could go on . . .

This is nothing more than YET ANOTHER fiendish plot by those people on the other side of the Irish sea. Now anyone who has ever set foot in this fair land, anyone who has never had his feet washed on arrival by servile natives, nor had every toothless peasant outside the pale tug their forelock with a "Top o' the mornin' ", followed by a rendition of Danny Boy, to proclaim loudly, AND TO THE WORLD, that they have met friendlier people in Afghanistan/Iraq/Darfur/Antartica, etc etc.

Unless this list is withdrawn immediately, let me put the entire population of Britain, through the medium of airliners.net, on notice, THAT WE WILL SEND OUR ENTIRE NAVY, consisting of eight fishery-protection vessels, steaming furiously up the River Thames to demand the heads of Gordon Brown, his cabinet and the entire Royal Family.

This persecution MUST STOP. Is there no level to which the British will not sink in their evil attempts to do us down?

What are you on about you decrepit Irish fool! Dammit, Lonelyplanet were being NICE about you!! Now, they could have mentioned the appalling arrivals hall at Dublin, the complete disregard for any road rules shown by 99% of the driving population or the obscene zeal with which they consume copious amounts of alcohol, but they didn't. They said you were nice.

So wind yer neck, you bog living, blackhearted Paddy, and be grateful the mighty Brits have deigned to praise your boggy little country and not tell the truth!

And anyway, you don't have a real air force - or a real airline come to that! Big grin  stirthepot

 Wow! Even when I was young he was old. And that's not today or yesterday. I am reminded of Dorothy Parker's response when someone told her that President Calvin Coolidge was dead: "How can they tell?".

In Val's context, it would be in response to "Is he still alive?"

You have NEVER stood with the Irish! The Scots WERE the Irish oppressors in the north! The Scots used to think it was a good idea to join in with an absolutist French monarchy and then wonder why the English got nervous about thousands of troops arriving on their northern border. The Irish, on the other hand, used to take one look at the continent, whisper to the English that it might be an idea to join together briefly, beat the shit out of the foreigners and then resume our own battle. Complete respect for the Irish, none for the Scots.  snooty   stirthepot

What a load of shite.......

I was married to a Irish Woman for 12 years and although she was fine, all her poxy family ever went on about was the Famine etc and basically hated the Brits.

This is typical of what I've experienced first hand that the Irish have a big inferiority complex when it comes to the English.

Face it, Ireland ponces of the E.U more than any other nation and gives nothing back.

It just one big Xenophobic nation trying to blame everyone else for it's own shortfalls.

As for Louis Walsh, Westlife etc Is this best you can do?? Keep them.......

What about Shakespeare, Churchill, Rolling Stones?

Even Guiness is a British creation and your best "export" of "U2" has a British member - Adam Clayton the bass player.

What was that the Duke of Wellington said about being born in a stable not making one a horse? And he was Irish . . .

Irish born, parents weren't. Trying to steal credit for that too like Guinness?

We're a SMALL xenophobic nation, and we ONLY ever blame the Brits.

The blame game - hey, why not - the Brits are only doing this to soften you up for some insidious blow.  tongue

IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT. EVERYTHING. How many times do I have to tell you this?

But you should know that we're all silver-tongued liars . . .

Quoting Cumulus (Reply 37):
Roddy Doyle? Hardly a classic novelist.... Look at the Commitments,The Van etc. Every other word was f****. Superb literature. As for Westlife, if you compare them to the likes of the Stones, Pink Floyd, Robbie Williams or any other huge British band/singer you need to see a doctor. You do of course have Daniel O'Donnell.....(lovely).

Well we won your Booker prize this year. And we've won the Eurovision more times than you . . .

Quoting Cumulus (Reply 37):
Irrelevant, the Irish make out it's a truly Irish drink invented by them which is rubbish.

There you go. If we're not telling you lies we're robbing you. This is what we do . . .

And who stole Ocsar Wilde? Wasn't he named the wittiest Briton of all time last week? Quits, Cumulus, quits.

This is typical of what I've experienced first hand that the Irish have a big inferiority complex when it comes to the English.

Do you blame them?? Look at your country! Who wouldn't have an inferiority complex when it comes to the English!?

Quoting Cumulus (Reply 35):
and basically hated the Brits.

Well..... who really likes ya'll?

Quoting Cumulus (Reply 35):
It just one big Xenophobic nation trying to blame everyone else for it's own shortfalls.

Ireland is definitely the only country on this Earth guilty of this.

What are you on about you decrepit Irish fool! Dammit, Lonelyplanet were being NICE about you!! Now, they could have mentioned the appalling arrivals hall at Dublin, the complete disregard for any road rules shown by 99% of the driving population or the obscene zeal with which they consume copious amounts of alcohol, but they didn't. They said you were nice.

Makes you wonder did the original poster imbibed just a tad too much of the local Irish whiskey.  duck

You could NOT put those two names in the one sentence, so thank you for using two. We will not tolerate Johnny's name being debased.

(1): I don't drink whiskey, and (2): I was quite, quite sober. It is impossible for those Brits to say anything nice about us.
