" A wealth of information..."

"1169 And Counting is a wealth of information on our Republican past and present , and demonstrates how the Irish political landscape , like that of any nation, will never be a black and white issue..."

The above photograph was taken in Dublin during the recent visit to this State by an English 'queen' : it clearly shows members of the State 'police' dumping their own flag in a bin lorry. The Irish National Flags in the photograph had been forcibly removed from the hands of people who were attending peaceful protests in opposition to the presence of that 'queen' , the Commander-In-Chief of the British Army. Apologists for that action tried to claim that it was the flag- poles that were being 'confiscated' but Tricolours that were been carried with no poles attached were also removed from their owners : it is obvious that the State ordered its compliant employees to trash any sign of 'Irishness' so as not to 'embarrass' the English 'queen' - a new low , surely , even for such toadies. And a disgusting low , but only to be expected.....
