I was dismayed to see our minister for justice Charlie Flanagan at a meeting on Wednesday in Newcastle County Down wearing the British poppy.
What does it say about we Irish who have to seek the indulgence of our former colonial masters by the wearing their symbol of war the poppy?
People may try to say it is about remembrance, I am all for that.
It is not.
Has anyone seen the British wearing the Easter Lilly?
Do I expect the British to wear the Easter Lilly?
No I Don’t.
Can we please stop this charade and stand up for honesty and truth about our history as there is a lot revisionism going on in Ireland and it is not acceptable.
