To be honest, I don't believe that there are any legitimate reasons to oppose her visit, never mind many such reasons. All I've heard is that it might stir up trouble while costing us a lot of money at the same time. Oh, and the militant Republican 'what are you, a West Brit?' nonsense.lostexpectation wrote:your reactions are against the terrorists, can you not also have a mature and independent reaction to the queen and the many legitimate reasons to oppose her visit.
Sorry, but I'm dreadfully tired of even the dregs of nationalism and patriotism. I decide my culture. I decide what aspects of my Irishness to be proud of. I haven't a semblance of patriotism in me, as long as patriotism demands that I shoulder the grudges of the past and champion ideals which I do not call my own.
