    Indeed this was just completely brushed under the carpet... Larger things are afoot and the reaction to this investigation and evidence of torture sanctioned at the highest level seems not to fit into the meta-narrative being pushed by those in the upper echelons. There are people who disagree with this 'policy' and I think that any push to sweep everything under the carpet will be resisted and defeated. It's all up in the air though at the minute.

    Possibly good to remember at this point that we weren't the only ones on the sharp end of the stick...the Empire covered half the planet at one point. There is also the institutionalised system of abuse that went on in some children's homes and public schools...fagging, anyone? Train up dysfunctional leaders, plonk 'em in the Army, and send 'em off to screw stuff up abroad. See also the Kincora on Thames thread....

    Good point, but remember we were the first overseas colony, and also their empire lab where all sorts of things were tried out first: plantation -(colonisation), language discrimination, ''famine'', torture methods, counter-insurgency tactics and of course media manipulation... quite a lot of first there

    We were also one of the first to slip the net, though, after the good ole' US of A...and they got away with more in Africa, India etc...fewer literate observers and far more people to go after

    sure why dont we all vote ff so. they love the queen dont they. this is about anglo irish relations not kowtowing and handwringing.

    Did you vote for that smug redmondite bruton back in the day too?

    A substantial minority of people refused to br colonised-three of my grandads uncles were IRA officers-but the revisionists want to paint our ancestors as crackpots and their actions as aimless murder.

    It is beyond a joke that the men amd women who rescued this country from eternal slavery should be apologised for. John Bruton should lose his passport. it is like pissing on the alamo

    I used to follow Ashcroft on Twitter for his polling data and had a vague sense he was planning something, particularly when he voluntarily relinquished his seat in the House of Lords.

    Yep.

    Tusk says ‘no deal yet’ after Brexit dinner with Cameron

    European Council president and U.K. prime minister want to consult Berlin and Paris on renegotiation.

    David Cameron and European Council President Donald Tusk failed to clinch a deal at dinner on Sunday on the U.K. prime minister’s demands for renegotiated membership of the EU, postponing the release of a draft text for another 24 hours.

    Tusk, who had hoped to present the proposals to the other 27 EU countries on Monday, ahead of a “Brexit” summit on February 18, left the dinner in Downing Street after two hours telling reporters: “No deal.” He then tweeted: “No deal yet. Intensive work in next 24 [hours] crucial.”

    It's looking like Cameron will have a job to convince voters that he got anything.

    Cameron s not trustworthyand will pin t out until he leaves office. Britain should leave the Eu and leave us in peace since British involvement in Europe has been entirely one sided . The idea European nationhood sits badly on the xenophobic British conscience because their origins are so like those they castigate!
