If theres any head of state that deserves respect its the queen. Not a foot wrong and not one scandal in 57 or so years on the throne. Obviously some Irish people have a problem with her because she is the symbolic head of the British state. Its not as if she chose the job and i wouldnt want it for any money.

The 26 counties were removed illegally from the British Crown and should be returned, a referendum should be set-up without delay.

She has served in the second world war, she has shook hands with so many iconic/ordinary people, from local unheard of people to the Beatles, from charity workers to Nelson Mandela, I wonder what her scrap book is like, with pictures of her shaking hands with the famous, there is nobody who comes near.

belfastuniguy, I'm also from the Republic and I don't share odlum's views, I think he's trolling you.

As for O'Gara, I think he's not smart enough to make a political statement here - he's just ill-bred.

Whether you like what she stands for or not, there has not been one person who has met the lady that has not said she holds herself with grace and dignity.

O'Gara was being a **** and you all know it, just as well her got what he deserved, came on in the second test and single handedly destroyed any chances of the lions winning the series.

Missed tackle for the third try, up and under when he should have punted it into the stand and ****ed the chase by fouling the guy, well done mate, act like a ****, life treats you like one!

;-)

O'Driscoll on the other hand is a gentleman of class and a credit to his country!

Careful there, monsieur. Our dear queen is not as pure as you think.
Please research what was done to the poor Chagos people of Diego Garcia (An island owned by the British in the Indian Ocean - part of the Chagos Archipelego). Their plight was highlighted by a brilliant investigative journalist named John Pilger - there's a documentary on it. Mark Curtis also wrote about it. I'm afraid she played a very nasty part in that crime. It would make you sick what the British & Americans did there.

I'm not a hysterical Brit hater , but I'm just pointing this out so that you know she's not perfect. It's important to know as much truth as possible. "Knowledge is power".

Peace.

What a laughable comment, and clearly off topic. But just to aid my understanding of the situation, can anyone recommend a non partisan link to explain the formation of the republic? (And to explain why, if it was 'illegal', why Britain recognised it).
And out of interest has a pole ever been taken re the presumed referendum question?

Wiki has a fairly unbiased history.
