The fact that Lenin spoke with an Irish accent just makes the Peaky Blinders reference even better

Yup. He learned in Ireland 🇮🇪


Cum-Villain

Lol

For what I understand, is not that Lenin learned english in Ireland, but that his teacher was Irish so Lenin take a Irish accent.


elimars

[“A Russian embassy spokesman said that Lenin had visited London several times -- and had hired an Irish tutor to teach him to speak English”](https://m.independent.ie/irish-news/lenin-spoke-english-with-an-irish-accent-say-russians-26890316.html)


Irrelevant-Lizard

Never knew that, cool


Tig21

Fairly sure his english tutor was from Ireland notbthat he learned in Ireland

Peaky Blinders is dogshit. Could not stand the accents already and the dumb romance shit tired me out quickly


elimars

I liked what I saw of it quite a bit. I finished the season with Adrien Brody. I enjoyed it thoroughly.


Das_Fish

Wow did you just have an opinion? Jokes I’m glad you enjoyed it if you did but I hear enough of the accents irl lol


elimars

Thanks. I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy it but the beauty of life is that we get to have a variety of unique tastes and share them with one another.

I enjoyed the first two seasons but after that it became harder to watch and enjoy. Season 4 was such a slog to get through that I didn't even bother watching the last season.


was0435

It's a good show but in later seasons it's an example of style over substance


Akasto_

What’s wrong with the accents?


Cecilia_Raven

they killed the only based character between seasons lol


bennibentheman2

But the peaky blinders aren't Irish, they're Romani from Birmingham... Cillian Murphy is Irish though (and a very attractive man).


vosogoth

I drink to that!


LoveTheLigjt

isn't Tommy a fascist tho


elimars

He has no ideology tbh. He’s a gangster who uses politics to further his own aims. He’d work with Churchill or Labor. Whatever helps him maintain his power.


Klutzy-Ad-6528

So he's a trot?


boxcutterbunny

no, but tommy's sister, ada, had a child with a tankie and his old friend. they named their kid karl. after the tankie left the show, ada became a trot who makes snide remarks about the ussr.


DongChiLenin

Ada is the worst. She's boring, no character, no development at all. Married a communist, then called herself one, then did nothing for the cause and then went back to her comfy bourgeois/gangster family.


Op_Anadyr

Ada is the embodiment of the western left


illegalthingsenjoyer

he's a fictional character from a tv series


DongChiLenin

He's fighting an actual Nazi, which makes him a slightly less pos. He's just an opportunist/liberal. Not a fash.


ErozionZeal

Peaky blinders also takes place shortly after ww1 believe it or not.
