    A part of Ireland is still occupied by Britain and he's going to have teas and biscuits with the Queen Of England, a foreign queen who claims sovereignity over a part of Ireland. The head of the British Army who have murdered hundreds of Irishmen in their own country. Disgusting but expected from a free state lacky.

    Michael Higgins is inept and I deem Mr. Higgins to be a perjurer
