    Every nation has it’s people to pick on. We have the irish, the American have the polish imigrants. We (English) pick on the Welsh for their love of sheep, the Aussies pick on the Kiwis (although Aussie sheep far outnumber Kiwi sheep), etc, etc.

    None.

    We’re just shown to be thick, while, some people, just go ahead and show themselves to be thick with no help at all.

    I think the accent has a lot to do with it.

    Isn’t it to make the English look smart? But, obviously, it’s not always the case. ๐Ÿ˜›

    Maybe because in Britain the prevailing impression of the Irish originally was from meeting Irish navies (who constructed our man-made waterways). Extremely hard workers, but not very well educated (if at all)?

    That’s just a guess mind.

    I think most countries have another nationality they base all their stupid person jokes on.

    if you are serious: I watched a programme the other day and the “Irish savages” thing was based a lot on the navvies who were over worked, under paid and lived in squalid conditions. Apparently.

    Mrs Higs (who’s Dutch) once told me a load of ‘Belgian’ Jokes. I’d heard most of them before told as ‘Irish’ jokes.

    The ones I hadn’t heard before all related to the Belgians’ love of chips.

    Hmm…my brother in law from County Limerick always said that: ” Roscommon man is tick as two short planks, so he is”

    There is a little bit of history between the Irish and the English I seem to remember hearing about I’m not sure.

    Making fun of the other-side and belittling make it easier to justify that it’s acceptable to behave in what otherwise would be considered an unacceptable manor.

    And now the roles seem to be reversed cf Dale Farm.

    It couldn’t stay good natured for long could it.

    I can think of quite a few English accents that sound much thicker (Brummie especially)

    I think it stems from the vestigial English mandate to repress the irish people. It’s all dim and distant past now but I don’t think anyone laughs at Oirish jokes any more do they?

    I don’t think the Irish have ever told Irish jokes, have they?
