Subject: RE: Questions re: Come Out Black & Tans?
A paraphrase from the film 'Braveheart' - History is wrote by the victorious or those that were not there - Maybe thats why we sing it and feel strongly and with passion, as we feel we are the victors, just as many a loyalist will sing passionately their tune, as they belive they too are the victors. It's only when one listens to the passion from the other side do you feel ill-tempered as it reminds you that on this occasion you are the losing side.

Some audiences will quite happily listen and partake and be passionate about songs from either side, they never feel they are on wrong or losing side - only the other side - of the Atlantic !
