    Nice to see what the ex-PM thought of the people in an entire region of the UK.

    What a bigot. I'd like to see Cameron get away with a comment like this.

    I'm not a supporter of the Thatcher regime but why say this now when she can't defend herself? Cowards.

    It was Peter Mandelson that said it.

    The Irish have always been considered to be the untermensch of society.

    I was born in England of two irish parents, and was reminded of my irish ancestry, that I was a lesser person because of it throughout school.

    Its made me extra motivated in life though, that because of something I could not control, meant I was racially inferior to others in society, partically to those of germanic/saxon ancestry (which is most of England really). I suppose we were similar to the way people view slavs in that regard, that I will always sub-human scum.

    But like I say my so called sub-human genes, haven't held me back too much, trying to attain 4 A*/A's to do dentistry and have a successful career. So we'll see who's laughing later.

    So I assume they're talking about Northern Ireland rather than the Republic of Ireland when they say 'The Irish' right?

    Since when has Peter Mandleson saying anything actually meant anything? How do we know he isn't lying? How do we know the Irish Times isn't making up ****?

    Tbh, they really shouldn't have been allowing the IRA to escape the British authorities whenever they murdered.

    Actually from Co Cork, no doubt...

    I hope you're not suggesting being a quarter Irish gives you carte blanche to be racist.

    Well she said it to Mandelson, NI secretary of state at the time, perhaps she only meant those in the North.

    I thought it was her great-grandmother anyway.

    Thanks for that clarification.

    Not actually being sarcastic, just a little dry.

    Just out of interest is there any proof over this, I would find it quite funny if it was, she can't be related to the untermensch surely?

    The Irish have not exactly endeared themselves to the English over the years, to be fair, although alternatively the same could be said about the English to the Irish.

    Basically, there has been mutual contempt on both sides of the Irish Sea at times, although it's far better today than it was a few decades ago.

    That sort of imaginary discrimination and chip on your shoulder is exactly the reason why some people find the Irish grating.

    Erm, I'd consider it to be racist, as would many others. Just because no one has said that it's racist, doesn't mean it's not....
