    indeed you didnt, but you have an easy to spot slant to your posts...

    along the lines of the catholic/irish being oppressed and victimised disproportionately. which is pure bull.

    but, not being from northern ireland, im sure you know all about it

    The problem is: half the people (probably more actually) in Northern Ireland either have little factual knowledge about the history, or some half-baked version of the truth.

    perhaps so.

    seen a few clangers from irish people on this very board. one tried to say 14 million died in the famine.

    another tried to call me "racist" against irish people.

    what about your knowledge of the history? read from the same books as the rest of us i would expect

    i take it 14 million dead because of the brits doesnt appear in it

    on a side note...this is one of the strange things i dont get about education on the mainland.

    you say you've gone to a private school all your life, yet your username is publicschoolann.

    you dont go to a public school ?!?!
    a private school is a public school. As opposed to a state school.

    public school = really posh private school, like eton or something?
    Hey, two friends of mine went to Eton before their fathers (they're different people with similar stories) were transfered to Brazil and now they go to my school :mad: :mad: a private one where I have studied all my life....

    State primary school (which, by the way, was a first-class dump ), state secondary school and state sixth form. See, we're not all toffs on this board lol.
    So do those two quotes mean I'm a toff (even though I can only imagine what that means...)?
