Misrule[edit]

We make no claims to objectivity, and insert snarky comments like that all over the place. As far as snark goes, it's pretty low-key, and not worth removing. Theory of Practice "...and we do love you madly." 17:23, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

I'm glad you're beginning to appreciate the value of discussion as opposed to confrontation. That it is not snark, it is simply historically and philosophically inaccurate. Can you please stop interfering in things you don't seem to quite understand.— Unsigned, by: ProudTory / talk / contribs
One man's snark is another man's inaccuracy. I like it that way. Theory of Practice "...and we do love you madly." 17:33, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
So asinine. A good indicator of the intellectual worth of this site. ProudTory (talk) 17:59, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
It's a part of the price. Disrespect for religion correlates with disrespect for other things. It's surprising that you are surprised.
Oh, and if the website is so worthless, what are you doing here?--ZooGuard (talk) 18:20, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
Interesting point re: disrespect for religion. I don't disrespect religion, especially since I got me some over the past year, but I try not to go around scrubbing the wiki of every bit anti-religious snark. Because I understand and accept what the website is all about. Don't try to make the place something it isn't, especially on your first day. Theory of Practice "...and we do love you madly." 18:25, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
Actually, "religion" was a bad word choice for what I was trying to express. I'm editing while sleep deprived.
Anyway, the point was that a part of the point of this wiki is that it's preferred viewpoint is not terribly reverent towards its main targets, and this tends to spread to the secondary topics. And yes, articles about countries, non-wooish politicians and political parties are secondary to RW's mission.--ZooGuard (talk) 18:43, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

The point is you aren't funny and you give both yourselves and your 'cause' a bad name. Like the occupy crowd or the 'UkUncut' types, you just don't seem horribly moved by rational debate or reasoned arguments, which is why your websites name and supposed mission is utterly laughable. I will warn many of my friends on the conservativehome website to not bother with this place, it doesn't care about facts, only tribalism, and is doomed to failure.

Okay. Theory of Practice "...and we do love you madly." 19:01, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

History with Great Britain and partition[edit]

The History with Great Britain and partition section is rambling and confusing. Could someone who knows the topic take a stab at it? — Unsigned, by: TiaC / talk / contribs 21:15, 30 October 2014

You can blame David Loyld George for the whole thing. He was responible for the paration of Ireland. There was a civil war in Ireland over the treaty that spilt Ireland. Ever since then, fleg waving loyalists won't shut up about how British they are. — Unsigned, by: 195.194.48.50 / talk / contribs
