Thank you, aniroo!

My best,

Hi aniroo,

Section 34 is up:

20:04

When Palmerston, who was living on the labor of Irish peasants, quipped that "tenant right was landlord wrong," he crossed a line with Justin McCarthy, an Irish Catholic MP.

My best,

Great quote. I wrote it down while I was listening. "the tenant rights was the landlord wrong" I can imagine some politicians who would say it today.
