“What an honour it is to be asked to sing in front of The Queen. I am so excited, and a little nervous to be honest. This is a dream come true, to be able to perform for somebody I have respected and admired for so long. I am thrilled…..”
– Mary Byrne (more here.).

How truly sickening. Is this woman so desperate to escape from , and so ashamed off , her working-class roots that she will verbally prostitute herself in front of morally useless burdens on society like the British ‘royal’ family ?
Has she no ‘bottom line’ ? Must
everything be ‘fair game’ in her rush to join those she judges to be the ‘elite’ ? Is there nothing she won’t ‘sell’ in order to ‘escape’ ? Has she no level-headed friends to advise her of where not to thread , of how far not to go ?
And it’s just as sickening to realise that there are more of her type out there , willing to sell their spirit and their very soul to please the ‘elite’ , in the hope that they , too , will be lifted into a ‘better Class’ , an easier lifestyle , regardless of the fact that they must disown their own culture to do so –

Jedward – ‘Poppy Lipstick…’

– like the ‘Jedward’ twins who, like ‘Queen Mary’ , are more than willing to sell everything in their quest to ‘make it’. Have those Irish people no shame ? To sell out is bad enough , but to do so with such gusto – and to the British ‘establishment’- embarrasses all of us in the eyes of decent , respectable people everywhere. They should be ashamed of themselves for bringing such disrepute on the Irish. As Oscar Wilde put it – “The development of the race depends on the development of the individual , and where self-culture has ceased to be the ideal , the intellectual standard is instantly lowered , and, often , ultimately lost.”

I hope all three – and those like them – make a financial fortune and move , permanently , out of Ireland. It would be the one good thing to come out of their betrayal……
