Many of those that served in the two world wars were conscripted and didn't have a choice. I know at 18 I might have been full of bravado....but truth be told I'd have shit myself in all probability if called up. Would all the Irish men on here answer the call....if Ireland went to war......or would they be claiming Britishness?

Tough test as always when against the Pumas. O'Brien has no luck with injuries.

Behind the scenes, and this is all hypothetical, do you think SF are possibly talking to Corbyn, to push that a referendum doesn't take place? At the minute SF are playing a blinder by doing absolutely nothing with regards to Brexit. I can't see the referendum happening but its just a thought.  If Brexit goes through as planned, its a given for Corbyn that Labour wins the GE as it'll be a disaster.

It's certainly no given.....have you seen the Labour front bench? Dianne Abbott? .....ffs Russ Abbott would be better. Never underestimate the stupidity of the electorate......many can be swayed by a slogan/lie on the side of a bus.

Abuse is ok as long as it's directed at Fenians😡


Seriously though - I understand anti-Irish abuse is a crime in the UK. Surely the perpetrators should be easily identifiable in a soccer stadium and dealt with appropriately?

Well let's consider this.....John Taylor calls Varadkar.....'typical Indian'.....nothing happens
Sponsored burning of effigies and anything remotely Nationalist every year.....nothing happens
Sectarian abuse and death threats to McClean and Lennon.....nothing happens
Don't forget that up until recently the Head of State couldn't marry a Catholic.....they can now....but they themselves can't be a Catholic........now imagine if instead of Catholic it was Jew or Protestant or Muslim. You couldn't make it up but now you know why the Tories and DUP are made for each other.

I don't think the UK monarch could be Jewish or Muslim, or anything other than Church of England.  The monarch is head of the Church of England, so presumably has to be part of that religion in order to be able to function in that capacity.  I don't think that particular policy is anti-Catholic as such.  Any more than saying that a Presbyterian couldn't be pope.

Up until relatively recently...2011 I think....the head of state could NOT marry a Catholic......if that's not anti- Catholic then I don't know what is in your world.

Wasnít there a thing that the PM couldnít be Catholic either? (Itís more than likely changed since, but still)

Well there hasn't been one so far.....maybe why a certain Jacob Rees-Mogg keeps distancing himself from Tory leadership. Blair converted after he left office. The problem arises because a PM would be advising the Queen or Head of State on secular appointments within the Church of England.

The fact that they can't recruit enough on home soil brings home the sense of abandonment many ex service men feel. That's why in my opinion this poppy fascism has taken hold in recent years.....to raise money to cover the cost of support provided by the likes of the British Legion.....a cost that the government should bear. Many of the homeless I encounter are ex service men who feel abandoned by the government. If the government are so proud of the armed forces then why don't they support them on their return from Iraq/Afghanistan. It's very easy to send someone else's son or daughter to war. Living in England I see poppies everywhere and it doesn't bother me in the slightest.....it's when it is rammed down people's throats that I have an issue. I will probably be attending a remembrance service this Sunday as the people I support normally attend....again no problem.....and I'll be wearing one to commemorate my grandfather who served in Second World War......if that makes me a hypocrite....then I'm a hypocrite.
