How to annoy both communities in Ireland in 20 minutes. Admit that you too want a United Ireland but then point out how events in 1916 made that impossible and all the lies we ignore about events 100 years ago. This Easter, I shall say a prayer for the Dublin Fusilliers, brave men of both faiths who were slaughtered horribly 100 years ago, not for Pearse and his associates whose legacy is a poisonous one built on lies. Even Republicans should be able to admit that now.
