    How far you agree with the following motion I came up with:

    "Michael Collins was a terrorist , murderer, and by todays standards a war criminal because, during the Anglo-Irish War, he illegitmatley imposed his republican dogma on the people of Ireland."

    I think this mostly because when the Irish people voted for Sinn Fein at the 1918 election they did not expect to have to live through three years of tyranny and fear for their life - if they knew that this was what a vote for Sinn Fein entailed, they probably would have declined (regardless, the peple should have been told).

    What do you think?
