indeed, a whole load of people murdered by IRA terrorists
And the State (paratroopers), UVF and UDA. The bombings in Dublin and Monaghan in 1974 were almost surely state-sponsored.

Get the facts right.

IRA was by far the largest killer. And they liked killing their own quite a lot. Strange.
I can see you are good at reading tables of numbers. Well done. 
You have missed the whole point of the 50th anniversary of the civil rights parade in 1968. At that stage the IRA was dormant.

You missed the 60s and the worldwide movements taking place in that decennium.

I was reading the numbers you cited. I trusted you that the numbers are correct.

I have been warning you all for years about neglecting the study of History, But none of you was taking my heed. 
It's all your own fault.

It’s hard to believe but it was only in 2015 that, according to the Treasury, British taxpayers finished ‘paying off’ the debt which the British government incurred in order to compensate British slave owners in 1835 because of the abolition of slavery.

Isle of Man exhibition features history of WW2 internment camp


https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-i ... n-36906504


Political prisoners were detained in high security camps, but most internees - including many Jewish refugees - were free to go shopping, swim in the sea and attend classes.

A few months later a mixed camp was established in Rushen and the Munzers were one of the first couples to benefit.

"Finally they were brought together again at a boarding house on the beachfront," Baroness Henig added. "It was a great relief to both of them."

Sounds just like a typical holiday on the IoM any time from 1940s to now.

Unfortunately, the horse drawn carriages in Douglas have gone. The bells were nice, one of my family found one in a ditch.

"I'm backing Britain, 1968"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I%27m_Backing_Britain

Paul McCartney thought the campaign was ridiculous[citation needed] and it inspired him to write a parody song called "I'm Backing the UK", which eventually became "Back in the U.S.S.R." on the Beatles' 1968 double LP known as the "White Album".
