Elaine is right its time to move on from backward thinking.
An example of this is putting up head stones to those who died for the british army, the coveys done this recently, even had the minister of Defence make a speech. Now this is what I call progress!.
Ooooooooops they forgot to mention that old Pt. Coughlan died destroying the crops on poor Indian farmers. As a result many of them died of starvation ... yeah thats right does it ring any bells ... give you a clue .... 1840's ????. Sorry forgot we have to move on ... by the way the Brits wanted the land to grow opium, they were selling it to the Chinese. Makes one proud to be Irish, does anyone give a shit about the Indian families, of course not!
