The British Separatist Minority In Ireland. Or How To Use Political Violence And Get Away With It

Jude Collins is one of my favourite Irish bloggers, an author and journalist with a seemingly indefatigable supply of opinions (where does he get the time?). With the Irish media establishment speaking with one voice on what was known in my youth as the “National Question”, he represents one of the few places where one can hear intelligent, well-argued counter-opinion (the latter also being known as the truth). His latest post touches upon a word also rarely hear these days: partition. It is well worth reading not least for the image accompanying it which puts all the Anglomedia talk about democracy and the threat or the use of violence for political ends into perspective.

When is a majority not a majority? When it is the militant British separatist majority in the North of Ireland.
