    Eh? Mistaken identity, you've got the wrong poster.

    Or do you try this with everyone who joins, in the hope you'll eventually hit the jackpot?

    I suspect he's an irony poster, and on our side.

    I find his posts pretty funny as a result tbh!

    My point was to understand why Olli and others like him would hold the opinions they do, which likely are the result of his personal experiences.

    No, the muslims living and working in the meat plant in Mayo. His interactions have been friendly, and it is better than an empty town. That is his view.
    I see nothing wrong with an empty town, all the more land for everyone.

    Jeaus, Dan, I wonder about you...

    Muslims working at an animal torturing factory in Ireland, you hold countenance for?

    No, I pointed out that that is his view. Not mine.

    But you're saying that he's justified in having those beliefs. Believing there should be factories torturing animals in the west of Ireland is counter to everything Irish. He's entitled to believe that, no doubt. But it discounts him from being Irish.

    I doubt it ever crossed his mind whether cattle were tortured or not. This concern for animals is a modern thing. People my age only care about how our steak is cooked. I myself don't eat much red meat at all.

    Ireland actually should be a meat producer, concentrating on organic

    Do you have any real idea what it means to be Irish, Dan? Beyond the theoretical stuff you're displaying here?

    I believe I do. Are Irish people now worried about cattle being killed? what is all that about.

    You're being bloody daft. Dan never said he's justified in having those beliefs. He just said he has them and they're his. You have trouble with dealing with people of a different viewpoint.

    You need to grow up Sir.

    I could be wrong, I'm just not sure tbh. His posts just hit me as parody, but who knows. I do find them funny as a result, thank god!
