Wideball. You have moved off the point completely, very childish statement about paying taxes in the uk. I've lived in the uk for years, I have children who go to school here I don't have an issue with paying taxes in any country I work in and I couldn't careless where it goes. For the record I have loads of British friends who are great people. People like you live in a bubble, you probably set out your underpants and socks on a Sunday night ready for work Mon- Fri and go home and do the same thing as you done the week before, and love everyone . Sorry to disappoint you, but there is a big bad world out there outside your bubble! I think your lack of respect for the Irish people and the people who lost there lives to the British forces not to many years ago is terrible. Other people have views on the British army playing in London this ,is why the vote was a split decision.
I'd stand up for my views and argue with any man based on FACTS and my personal experience of what happened in the past. I hope this team wins the All Britain and gets an away fixture in the North, I wonder who'd turn up then.
A generation which ignores history has no past and no future.
Also,you mention you have played ball in the UK so assuming you either worked here or even just purchased something from a shop then you have paid tax and therefore contributed to the funding of the British army. No conflict with your beliefs ???
Pointless argument. What's he meant to do, live in a hedge and do a Ray Mears every morning for breakfast? Or maybe shouldn't have moved across the water in the first place, the old "if you don't like it, f*** off back" argument dressed up in new packaging?
Oh and that "coming of age" moment in the rugby made me want to reach for the sick bag it was that patronising. Oooh isn't Ireland all grown up, nearly ready for big school.....
