So what I said was absolutely correct.
Again.
Ireland is an independant nation, so what you said was completely wrong, if you had said northern Ireland then you would have been right, but you clearly didn't and were so clearly WRONG, if you don't know the difference between Ireland and northern Ireland, your education must have been non existent

Do you need to check a map?
Northern Ireland and Ireland are seperate countries so it is you who needs a map, but as you don't have a brain to read that map it would be less than useless to you, as you are less than useless to anything else

Why does america live under such an undemocratic system, I mean even your president is APPOINTED for you, you have absolutely no say in who your candidates will be, and you get to choose from a massive two parties, it is all so clear why britain is ahead if america in the democracy tables and why so many of tge worlds democracies are the British parliamentary model, because it is the best and only true democratic system, America need to make some changes and join the real democracies of the world with real prime ministers, british style, the home of democracy and leader of the free and parliamentary world

You just quoted a report from twelve years ago
Dummy: the thing about the people who died twelve years ago is they are all still dead.

So when I say that close to two hundred people died from eating British beef and no one has died from eating US beef, as long as those Brits are still dead, the argument still applies.

Thing about vCJD. Packy, is they can't filter it out of the blood like it was turkey fat in the gravy.

Wow, your stupidity has no bounds, Britain is also an island, made up of England, Scotland, Wales and northern Ireland, are you sure you don't want a map, Ireland is also an Island, made up of northern Ireland and the republic of Ireland, people from Ireland are called Irish, people from northern Ireland are called British, do you understand now or shall I draw it in crayons for you

Of course they are. Because believers are a danger to them. Believers do unspeakable things to those who don't think like them. Its bad enough that some humans are unkind to others but its worse when those humans use dark age mythology to justify it. Hopefully one day religion will cease in this world and people will operate on logic. That alone will change the world for the better.
Sad that you feel that way, religious charities feed, clothe, and provide shelter for more people around the world than any other source. People of Faith are far from perfect, but most try to help others.
