"If the Irish famine was deliberate that would be genocide. "
It has been referred to in Ireland for as long as I can remember as "The Irish Holocaust" and the evidence of Sir Charles's Trevelyan's behaviour (the man appointed to distribute famine relief, who described the catastrophe as "God's punishment on the indolent Irish") which came to light some years ago confirms that description.
The Irish Famine was described publicly by leading British politicians as "the solution to 'The Irish Question" and the mass evictions and enforced migration of millions indicated a deliberate policy
All this in now widely documented
An unbiased History of Colonial Britain has yet to be written and is long overdue
