Subject: RE: BS: 'Stripping of Citizenship'??
Interesting insight into how some members of the establishment view the rights of British Citizenship in this morning's Sunday Times
Retired diplomat, Michael Lillis, describes how, during the Troubles, Mad Maggie Thatcher suggested that all those living in the Northern Counties who didn't wish to be British Citizens should be forcibly moved to the South.
She cited Oliver Cromwell's forcible mass emigration of the "Rebellious Irish" into Connaught as a precedent
