He asks a question about French troops on British soil.
I refuse to answer a hypothetical question that he wishes to associate with the IRA.
He claims the question has nothing to do with the IRA, and that he's asking because he is interested in my opinion, he accuses me of 'making up an answer to fit another question'.
I then pointed out that that was exactly what he was doing, asking about French troops so he could associate that with the IRA.
His answer to this was, "No I'm not Rikk...It's a straight forward question,"
A straight forward question, nothing to do with the IRA, and nothing to do with Northern Ireland ..... yeah, right!
He then says ......
"I'll put the question to you again...How would you react if FOREIGN troops were patrolling your city every day (English troops are NOT Irish , therefore foreign !)........how would you react to it?"
Can you believe that???
"No I'm not Rikk...It's a straight forward question," ..... LIAR!
So let's lay down some FACTS that Paddy doesn't like ....
Northern Ireland is a separate country within the United Kingdom.
England, Wales and Scotland are also a countries within the United Kingdom, therefore, English, Welsh and Scottish troops are NOT foreign troops when serving in Northern Ireland.
The majority of the citizens of Northern Ireland want things to stay as they are.
The IRA represent a minority of the citizens of Ireland in many places, including .... Dáil Éireann, Seanad Éireann, House of Commons, European Parliament (Northern Ireland), Northern Ireland Assembly, Local government in Northern Ireland, Local government in the Republic of Ireland, Údarás na Gaeltachta. .... in EVERY one they are a minority, they don't represent a majority of voters anywhere.
