I hope not to offend anyone but phonetically Portuguese sounds like Russified Spanish Spanish'd Russian ; Portuguese and Russian are perhaps the two most unappealing languages to me in terms of how they sound.

Not that it's an excuse or anything, but IIRC PSNI is (or perhaps was) the world's most dangerous police force to work in. South Africa is close by.

Down here in the Republic where I am living and born and raised, you'd probably be praised for replying in Irish, since Irish speaking communities are disappearing and the language is useless now and dead.

My god. Arrested for answering in a bloody language that's still taught here in the South? Seriously? They must have been like this:

"Is ainm dom Dermot Douglas"

"OH YOU DID NOT JUST DO THAT!!"

*police arrests him*

Why do South Armagh and The West Counties have to stay in Ulster?

Sinn Féin majority. English government ignores it. Yay!

Honestly, most of the polls that caused Ulster to secede in the first place were gerrymandered.

Irish is such a minority language these days, they probably had no idea what he was saying. Of course, that's no grounds for arrest.

Perhaps I have been listening to the wrong songs. Excuse my plebian musical culture. Ai Se Eu Te Pego has given me an allergy. Whenever I hear a song one too many times I find myself banging my head against walls in agony waiting for it to stop. Or running away :lol: Perhaps the only exception is songs that I really really like , to which I can listen to on and on without them ever getting old.

Which really has no impact as these people like having representation in the UK among other things.

Possibly.
Tíocfaidh ár lá can be interpreted multiple ways. Either friendly greeting or an IRA rally cry. Meaning literally 'our time will come' it could either mean a united Ireland, or simply the time of happiness.
As well he could have said a similar sounding phrase 'Tíocfaidh bhur lá' which means, you'll have your chance at happiness, a wellwishing phrase.
