Let the mob rule! Anybody who disagrees with a comrade should be ‘disappeared’.

    Interesting the growth in disparity of the sizes of the “mobs”, Leo.

    The census of 1841 conservatively estimates the population of Ireland at 8.2 million, and estimates that of England & Wales at 15.9 million.

    The approximate population of Ireland in 2011 was 6.4 million, and the approximate population in England & Wales was 56.1 million.

    Funny how that worked out. Sure isn’t it grand when it’s the British mob telling us what to do.

    How many of those English are descended from Irish people, though? The English aren’t a stagnant bloc, unchanged since the days of the Norman Conquest. Without Irish emigration Britain would have a much smaller population and you’d have fewer people to blame for your perceived woes. It’s actually a form of self-loathing, you know.
