Agree, way too many threads, and totally random
I'm not even sure if you're trolling, lying, sparking controversy, or just legit
I see the opinions of others seem to phase you.
Are you autistic by chance, and cannot conceive of others' different thoughts?
hey im in the same situation u are in , i did one year at uni and know am doing a engineering foundation year (integral-4 years). Did you get funding for it,because i am still waiting for the outcome
i sat my first year exams and didnt drop out, did you sit your first year exams?
I don't think we ever will have a united Ireland, I agree, however I firmly stand by Collins and what he did. I don't think Britain would EVER have stood by and allowed a 32 county independeny state. Should Collins have stood firm and demanded 32? Maybe.
I think demanding 32 was unreasonable - Britain wouldn't budge and substantial pressure was applied by George. I think Collins' choice was a pragmatic choice, end the fighting and establish the Irish Free State, once established, the North would admire the economic, cultural and political stability of the South and eventually vote to join. I'd say that's what his plan was anyway.
To be honest, as long as Ireland was devolved and allowed to choose it's own national anthem, I wouldn't have had a problem being part of Britain.
I'm unsure just how partition affected the change of Independence (of 32) but I do believe that if Collins had his way - instead of betrayal by his followers, a 32 count free state was possible.
Question his judgement, fair enough, but I believe he genuinely did his best for the 32, and at the very least, he deserves to be admired.
Please spoiler your sig properly. It's breaking the forum layout
The / should come before the word spoiler and not after it, when closing the bracket
hey i noticed you did economics
please can you tell me what its about!!!
Thats ok. Thought it might've been a joke I want to study English with American Studies (so I can study a year in the States woohoo!)
Crappy is an understatement. It recently went into special measures. It's claim to fame is 70% of kids getting passes in Eng Lang + Maths.
They even mixed my science results up in Year 9 with a foreign kid - a matter which still hasn't been resolved - and placed me in the btec science group. *******s.
I am taking Eng Lang, Lit, Politics and Economics at A level if you're interested
