Irish Presidents Visit

What a splendid visit, I never thought I'd see the day when a british monarch visited the irish republic as she did in 2011, and to see the visit reciprocated in this way is utterly brilliant.
Ireland is like family to many of us, finally that old lingering resentment of each other is passing and we can look forward to warm relations in the future.

I can't argue with that. The rebellious sods won the day and we hadn't learnt the "hearts a and minds" lesson. Maybe but for that event, we may never have and, then, been subsequently buggered in several confrontations since.

Speaking as a Brit Bastard, I can't but like the Bog Wogs. thumbs.gif
 
Would say Mc Guinness got some 'chefs special sauce' at the banquet at Windsor, from some of the ex service people on the staff there.:jerk:
