Would a heroic overthrow of imaginary oppression be forcing Chick Fil Lay off campus?

The modern Irish Republic seems quite an interesting place.

They threw off the yoke of British occupation and then theocratic feudalism.

Seem to have a much clearer sense of their own history than the Tory crowd across the sea. Those folks appear to have watched too much BBC about their glorious past.
