Happy Saint Patrick`s Day to all our Irish readers, our Irish-American readers, and to legal immigrants from Ireland. (As for illegal Irish immigrants, you can buy a one-way ticket from New York to Shannon fairly cheaply.) In honor of St. Patricks`s Day, check out St. Patrick’s Day Explained To England by Peter Brimelow, and The Camp Of St. Patrick and Ganging Up On America by me. Peter Brimelow`s column was an attempt to explain the St. Patrick`s Day parade to the readers of the London Times in the `80s, and mine attempt to explain that nineteenth century Irish immigration was not an unmixed blessing.
