Ireland have never been "splendid" as you dishonestly claim I have said - far from it (honesty doesn't seem to feature strongly on your personal Richter Scale) - but independence from Britain immediately made it a better place than it had under British room and provided it with an opportunity to improve or at least make its own mistakes -

British kids have only the increasing dole queues before them as British Industry (what there is of it) continues to go belly-up.
