  7. Very informative, but (no offense) your English is unintelligible to me. I wish you tried speaking a more neutral accent we can all understand.

    0:10 Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. You do not know Irish history. Ireland was not invaded. There was a fight for the position of High King of Ireland. The "English" were invited over to help one contender become the high king. A Scottish persons view on Irish history. You got over 1 million views for these lies?

    Wales gets no mention. Even though it makes up Britain with England. Great Britain is Scotland, England and Wales. The United Kingdom is the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland is made up of six of the nine counties of Ulster. Ulster is not Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland a subset of Ulster.

    Nothing mentioned of Cromwell turning the whole of Ireland into what is basically a contraction camp. Towers / forts where constructed around the coast and gradually moved inland squeezing the Irish into smaller areas of land. Cromwell killed those who continued to fight to get their country back.

    6:30 The Third Home Rule Bill automatically became Law as the House of Lords kept having vetoed the Bill. A Law stated that if a Bill is passed in the House of Commons three times but rejected in the House of Lords three times it become Law. The English used the First World War as an excuse not to implement the Home Rule Bill. Protestants in Ireland said they would created civil war in England with the help of English soldiers. The English government gave in your these terrorist demands and kept Northern Ireland rather that fulfill the Law.

  12. Pentu Prager says:

    6:30 Wrong again. The Third Home Rule Bill was passed on January 1913. It would become Law on 1914, as the English Parliament was in emergency / war mode the English promised to implement the Home Rule Law after the end of World War One.

  14. becuase they discovered they have brains

  15. This gives you an idea of the almost constant war and bloodletting of British, and European, history.
    The fact we've had peace in Europe for the last 60+ years, when you consider the previous millenia, or much longer if you go back to Roman rule etc…, of fighting and famine, is remarkable and should be recognised.
