Countries have different names in different languages
#8
RE: Countries have different names in different languages
Well I get pretty pissed when people start talking about that fictional country the Republic of Ireland as if it were the place where I live. I live in Ireland or, if you want to be pedantic, Éire. The other name was one invented by the UK government because they didn't want to piss off the racist little statelet in the six counties not granted their rightful independence in 1921 and only abandoned in 1999 when they finally had to admit that the country could use its own name.
The great appear great because we are on our knees. Let us rise!
