    Indeed. The disconcerting thing about it is that 95% of people would agree with you, and yet here we are.

    Nobody voted for it, few people want it, and nobody can pinpoint when exactly it became...

    Within modern policing organisations (and, I'd be willing to bet, military ones as well), the ruthless way in which breaches of PC norms are dealt with has a lot to do with the promotion system.

    The unfortunate thing about PC Culture is that it largely achieved what it first set out to achieve, and then went way too far.

    Currently, it is mostly about power. It's a way for people of a...

    This seems to be part of a trend. Same thing has been happening in Australia. The ABC has recently been pushing hard to expose war crimes allegedly committed by the country's most decorated living...

    That'd be a good idea and a good start, but the amount you'd recoup from it alone wouldn't be much.

    What they should do is withdraw Irish taxpayer aid to any and all countries where it has been...

    Ireland doles out how many tens of millions of euro per annum to Uganda (to give one example), and much of it finds its way into the bank accounts of its government ministers.

    Meanwhile, the...

    Young men who shout 'up the RA' in the middle of Fields of Athenry are patriots of the highest order, as are young men who buy Celtic jerseys and have 'Éire 32' printed on the back of them.

    The Finns can justify that sort of expenditure because of their geography and history.

    Yeah, it probably behoves us to piss or get off the pot and go one way or the other.
    If we were going to do that though, we'd have done it by now.

    Offical attitudes to defence in Ireland have been ever the same - spend as little as we can get away with and rely on Britain as our shield.

    In response to Buck:

    Nothing I say proves anything. But it boils down to this:

    1. There is money and political capital in making the case in favour of human-driven climate change.
