During the 'civil rights' movement of the late 1960s the impression was given that Protestants were living in white mansions while Roman Catholics lived in hovels. This played a big part in giving a false impression to the world. But the world bought it.

It was said that the worst houses in Londonderry was in the Protestant Fountain estate area. In Belfast some of the worst houses was amongst the Protestant working classes in the Lower Shankill and Woodvale areas.

Unfortunately propaganda becomes regarded as facts over a period of time.

Yes, they saw how the world was changing with the protest movement though out the western world. This was their chance to portray themselves in the same light and the rest is history. Protestants by contrast got on with life and were loathe to complain choosing instead to take whatever life brought them.

Have to say the living conditions for people in the rest of the UK was bad too but there were no civil rights demonstrations there. The Irish are brilliant at playing 'the poor downtrodden ' people. They know how to turn defeat into victory by always being the victim. This despite their murders of men women and children.
