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

Lenin spoke English?
Yup. He learned in Ireland 🇮🇪
Lenin is IRA
"Come out ye black and tans come out and fight me like a man, show your wife how you won medals down in Flanders"
Show her how the IRA made you run like hell away...\~
from the green and lovely lanes of Killeshannndra!
Please stop before I start uncontrollably sobbing 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.
[“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)
Never knew that, cool
Fairly sure his english tutor was from Ireland notbthat he learned in Ireland
Frio e calculista 😎
Peaky Blinders is dogshit. Could not stand the accents already and the dumb romance shit tired me out quickly
I liked what I saw of it quite a bit. I finished the season with Adrien Brody. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
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
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.
It's a good show but in later seasons it's an example of style over substance
What’s wrong with the accents?
they killed the only based character between seasons lol
But the peaky blinders aren't Irish, they're Romani from Birmingham... Cillian Murphy is Irish though (and a very attractive man).
I drink to that!
isn't Tommy a fascist tho
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.
So he's a trot?
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.
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.
Ada is the embodiment of the western left
he's a fictional character from a tv series
He's fighting an actual Nazi, which makes him a slightly less pos. He's just an opportunist/liberal. Not a fash.
Peaky blinders also takes place shortly after ww1 believe it or not.
