The ” Come out ye Black and Tans” stuff is clearly a reference to the governments idiotic recent idea to commemorate the RIC. The minister saying “up the ra” is less defendable.

Had to google RIC after it being mentioned again. Good f***ing grief, what on earth possessed them to suggest such a thing? :lol:

They're upper class West Brits. They are not even that bad at running the country but they are utterly awful at gauging the mood of the people

Learned more about Ireland in a few days than my whole life. Liked to think I knew something too because I followed NI more than the average Brit. :blush: :lol:
Making mistakes is how you learn.
Every generation must fight the same battles again and again and again. There is no final victory, and there is no final defeat, and so a little bit of history may help.
“What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you?” If you cannot get rid of the people who govern you, you do not live in a democratic system.
That is why no one with power likes democracy and that is why every generation must struggle to win it and keep it – including you and me, here and now.

The RIC only dissolved in name only a century ago, in reality, it only disbanded properly in its entirety less than 20 years ago. Still fresh enough in the memory for a lot of people.
