Postby Out Of The Ashes » Fri Apr 04, 2014 11:06 am

Or so say the Police Service of Northern Ireland

http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/ ... 53906.html

It is my opinion that it is ridiculous that the local government can support the Irish language in some settings but should it be used the police will arrest the speaker rather than attempting to find an interpreter.

What do you lot think? Who's in the wrong here?

What seriously? so they arrested someone in Ireland for speaking...Irish? Not quite sure what the possible logic is there. Either way I guess it safe to say this guy didn't kiss the Blarney Stone or should I say Cloch na Blarnan? :lol:

Northern Ireland isn't really Ireland anymore. It's kind of like the wannabe vamp kid who use to wear Banana Republic but then visited Hot Topic one day and has been buying clothes there ever since.

Got to keep those pesky republicans tricolors in tow. Even with the downfall of the IRA things are going to be tense and still are. Vice news did a documentary about the tensions in 2013 and they seemed to still be simmering even with "peace".

That tension can very easily come back to bite them in the ass and dismantle the peace.

They really need to calm the fuck down unless they want more pissed off Irish guys blowing banks up.
