    What reason would you have to sympathise with Catholics if you think her only role was protecting the democratic will of the population from terrorists?

    That sums it up perfectly for me! I have seen many reasonable people struggling to hide their joy at her death. They want to rise above it and almost brush it off but the scars are too deep even after all these years.

    I am sure they'll be happy to take their Oil with them if they are Scotland and Northern Ireland would like to take all that gold in Tyrone.

    So it's your conclusion that every working man who went to a pub in northern England was a communist agitator? You know nothing about the UK or its social structure, so I'd suggest you quit while you're able. Or stick to the tourist spots in London if you ever visit there.

    England would lose Forties, Shetland, Moray and Northern Scotland Coast so in reality that's like 80% plus of the Northern Sea Oil that England has rights to.

    I sympathize with them because I am Catholic and the reason for the Protestant majority in Ulster is the British occupation.

    **** the Catholics sympathy the protestants have been their for hundreds of years and have rights as well, if they don't like it they are welcome to move south of the border.

    Now where did i say that? Can you see it anywhere at all?

    If so quote the passage and get back to me, okay?

    It seems you've spent too much time in a northern pub.
