Because we were wandering too far off the subject of the thread, I should think.
So let's get back to the original allegation, that Ireland specifically rejected the Nice Treaty because of Poland - not because of any of the other accession countries you notice, but of because of Poland in particular. Lies of course. And then we have the supposed violence perpetrated by the Irish against the Polish community in Ireland, More lies. And finally Sh*tty, when asked by Pawian, had no explanation as to why the treaty was accepted second time round especially as the Irish are apparently filled with 'visceral' hatred for the Polish people. Actually, the second time round,we got a concession/opt out from participating in a common European defence pact. One of the reasons the original treaty was voted down was because of perceived threats to Irish neutrality. That was also one of the reasons for the failure of the Lisbon Treaty first time round and the same thing happened, we got an opt out and it passed.
Then of course we have Sh*tty's bizarre reasoning that Poland deserved to join the EU and get 'handouts' because they 'suffered' in WWII (funnily enough he didn't mention the PRL years) but Ireland apparently didn't deserve the same, despite 750 years of oppression,genocide, starvation etc.
Now we just have to wait for Sh*tty to come back and finish what he started - except he won't because he's made a fool of himself and has no intelligent arguments to make.
Worst of all for the Irish was the knowledge that any money taken away would be redistributed to Poles and other Central and East Europeans
The people of "Eastern Europe" were not completely unknown to us Sh*tty because the greedy Irish were the first to put their hands in their pockets, years before any other nation, for the people of Chernobyl back in 1986, and to this day have pumped tens of millions into that community, gone out there in our thousands to help and welcomed the disabled children of Chernobyl into our own homes. We were also among the very first people to go out to Romania when Ceaușescu's regime collapsed and in 1989 Irish people adopted almost a thousand children from Romanian orphanages. Countless Slavic lives have been saved and enchanced through the direct generosity of the Irish people. According to Ukrainian Dr Igor Polivenok who appealed for help in 2015:
"It is unbelievable. It's like a miracle that such a small island has such a big heart. I cannot find the words to express how grateful I am. You have given these poor children a chance of life."
