no its your stupidity that beggars belief.

Lord Mountbatten, the last viceroy, was told by the British prime minister, Clement Attlee, in March 1947 to negotiate an exit deal with Indian leaders by October; if he could not, Britain would leave India with no deal by June 1948. The decision to speed this up and leave on Aug. 15 was Lord Mountbatten’s. The decision to grant this power to Lord Mountbatten, a naval officer nicknamed the “master of disaster” in the admiralty for his propensity to damage warships by precipitate action, was Mr. Attlee’s.

I know you despise our country and its history but surely you can spell it properly. Otherwise it's difficult to take you seriously.

If you are referring to the Remembrance Day bombing of course that was mass murder. If you are referring to the thousands of other deaths in battles for Enniskillen I would refer that to deaths in battles rather than mass murder. The key difference being that one side is willfully killing unarmed civillians.

The British government were not evil but many of the decisions they took in the early days of the troubles led to where we ended up. Don’t forget they were welcomed with open arms by the Catholic women and children with the assumption they would end the sectarian victimisation. They didn’t and they weren’t going too. That became clear after the Falls Curfew, the Ballymurphy massacre and Bloody Sunday.

From that point it was clear that the British government were going to allow incidents of mass murder causing many to flock to the phoney protection of the IRA.

Actually perhaps they were evil? Actually perhaps their being evil directly contributed to an evil reaction.

After all if they were not evil why were the regiments not withdrawn and shamed that were culpable of mass murder? Or in English, massacres.

Mountbatten had an impossible job with very limited resources. There was always going to be a bloodbath when we left and to blame him/us rather than local religious fanaticism and intolerance for what happened is a gross distortion of the past. Typical of left historians whose agenda is to attack our country and its history.

Your knowledge of the history of your country is shameful.

Call yourself a patriot? Learn your history.
