Subject: RE: BS: Soldiers Convicted of Crimes in NI
I was pointing out an obvious fact about your whole post Den... You take far too much to heart mate, and it gets very tiring. In the culture I belong to, "Paddy" is more of a term of endearment than derogatory. The meaning of Paddy is "A Son of Ireland" and I take great offence to you impling I was using it in anything other than what it was intended as. We refer to the Welsh as "taffy" and on more than one occasion I have been called "Limey" without offence or taking the "Mickey" Get a life Den!!!
