All the Irish have left

    All the Irish have left;
    Irish names.
    Irish accents.
    Gaelic Football.
    Hurling.
    The tricolour flag.
    The EU has taken away everything we have which makes us Irish and not just Europeans. We lost the Punt, now its the Irish driving licence. We can't even have our road signs in miles, it has to be kilometres.
    The Irish language is dying out, and the Irish Government has sold our sovereignty to the EU.
    Ireland has become a country of bastardised American and British culture.
    The next thing the EU will want us to do is drive left hand drive cars on the right side of the road, in order to harmonise with the rest of the EU.
    Membership of the EU has its benefits, but right now the cons outweigh the pros. The Irish are losing everything they have to the EU. The sad thing is that the Irish Government are letting them. We are losing all we have left.

    Things change. If people had the same attitude hundreds of years ago nothing would ever change. We'd be in darkness. Let's cut the bull**** going forward...

    Also, are you a troll?

    Actually massive amounts of potatoes are imported to Ireland from the EU.

    They can take my lemonade and eat all our swans... But they'll never take away my Clonakilty pudding, my red pubes & freckles dammit.

    Electric Ireland (formerly ESB) are doing a good job of putting us in the dark by raising bills. You think we would be in darkness without progress? Progress is putting us into the dark faster.
    Going forward is being part of the EU? The EU is going backwards not forward. Their economy is shrinking not growing.
    I am not a troll. My opinions differs from yours, but that doesn't make me a troll for expressing it on a forum.

    I am glad you get the irony of it.
    So many people don't get it.

    I remember the day down in Rosslare when I sat on the docks and watched the Eurocrats load up the ferries with lorry loads of hurleys..


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 18,966 ✭✭✭✭syklops

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 27,944 ✭✭✭✭4zn76tysfajdxp


    It's all the Foreigners coming over.

    I think he might actually be talking about home tbh, I'm looking out my window here and I see a tricolour at full mast. I see a sign and it's in both English and As Gaeilge...my own name is still Irish...that hasn't changed. My drivers licence is as gaeilge and in english.

    Nope...Johnny is in a different country alright.

    England is not my home.
    Home is where one belongs.
    That would like suggesting Shane McGowan returns to Kent.

    The metric system makes logical sense. The other system is just random.

    Is it not British anyway?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 923 ✭✭✭Johnny Foreigner

    No.
    Its more a case of all the Irish emigrating.

    Yes, that is definitely on the cards. Once the new format driving licenses are issued, then the Govt has plans to transition to driving on the RHS.

    They are going to phase it in gradually. It will start with just trucks, then cars with even number plates, then those with oddones, over about a 4 month period.

    The metre was French, not British.

    However, in 1793, France adopted as its official unit of length a metre based on provisional results from the expedition. Although it was later determined that the first prototype metre bar was short by a fifth of a millimetre because of miscalculation of the flattening of the Earth, this length became the standard. The circumference of the Earth through the poles is therefore slightly more than forty million metres (40 007 863).[4]

    It's a case of the Irish going abroad then coming back with their heads full of ideas.

    Bad things, ideas! Rice & pasta ffs! What's wrong with spuds?

    Going abroad is bad for our heritage.

    :pac: I couldn't give a flying F.. you sound like some 70-80 year old ould lad. Are you sure it's not the shilling and halfpence you want back?

    Looking down through history, countries, cultures, languages and people have always been evolving. It's called progress, get with it or get left behind....the alternative is ending up like Cuba or North Korea.
