Well, that's OK then! If I pick up a rifle and kill a 
passing pizza delivery man (as happened at the Maserreene 
Barracks) it was all the fault of the British oppressors 
and I bear no guilt.

And if the vast mass of the Northern Irish working class 
(as is the case) are horrified by what these 'liberators' 
have done, then, like the pizza delivery people who were 
shot they are 'collaborators with the oppressor' and it 
*still* isn't my fault!

How excellent! So I can go around perceiving historical 
injustices wherever I want to, shoot/injure anyone I want 
to, and it's never my fault!

I'd have joined this list years ago if I'd realised that 
being a Marxist means never having to say you're sorry and 
never taking responsibility for anything you do...
