Why do Irish media title people, aside from Mr/Mrs/Dr etc??

    If one reads a French, German etc newspaper or watches TV in these countries, they do not refer to British people using their imperialistic given "title". Elsewhere, outside of the racist Anglo-Saxon dominion, they are just referred to a Joe Bloggs or Mr Bloggs in the media

    Ireland professes to be a neutral democratic state.A republic. Why do the media operating in this state refer to certain persons using their pompous titles, given to them by an antiquated sick state, one that wants to Brexit its way out of the world, because they can no longer dominate it. A state that attempts to put certain 'classes' of society on a pedestal? (I am not putting the subject matter of this article in the Irish Times on a pedestal - he is just a victim of the system he grew up in). One would expect better from him and the Irish media that report on people like him.

    We sat again for an hour and a half discussing maps and figures and always getting back to that most damnable creation of the perverted ingenuity of man - the County of Tyrone.
