Re: What planet are you on?

Apart from that fact it was a province of England,

It was a country within the UK.

Marshall law was in force

Is that like Juncker law?

that was no home rule

It had a parliament with free elections, but subject to a foreign parliament and leader.

civilians were shot at a football match

A reason to be glad the EU doesn't have an army?

and the rebels were executed,

Which was the big mistake that pushed people over the edge to vote for change.
