Jackeens

I saw this while I was away in Ireland.
"As so often in the past, national pride was salvaged by those of whom the nation generally feels least proud: young, working class men from marginalised communities. While the horsey set, with all their money and self-regard, were making a show of us yet again, the competitors who demonstrated honesty and discipline, pride and passion, were from the invisible Ireland that is represented only in court reports."

I like articles like this. While it's a bit hard to take too seriously, it appeals to all of my prejudices.

love your work on this issue.

I heard a posh cunt say a word once.

Killed it on the spot and that.

Deserved it for speaking above its station and that.
