Its called racism folks.

Its nasty, it is hatred, inspired by ignorance. It seeks to promote ignorance and hatred beyond itself in order to make the world a worse place – to bring it down to its own level.

I have never, and clearly will never understand why a large section of ‘unionism’ seeks to maximise the vote for a united Ireland and seeks to alienate the maximum number of people possible from the ‘United Kingdom’. I am clearly not supposed to understand.

Whatever this unionism is about, it is not about a union with Britain.

It is not about being ‘British’ either, I know. I know British people from Britain. Most of whom do not talk like that.

What is it about then? Explain to the Tadhg.

Who says blogging can’t change anything? We have to graciously acknowledge this apology from Jim Allister in my view. This is progress, and I for one am grateful for it. It is possible to discuss things and to disagree without trying to be offensive.

Heads up to “Big Bopper”.
