Kieran Pradeep - "National Identity is an interesting and dynamic process. Melanie Phillips makes it boring."
Kieran Pradeep - "NI is a land struggling to keep its head above a tide of historical debt. Culture and identity become leveraged by those who define them for us. Our segregated communities, educations and institutions service this debt, ensuring that the hierarchies in place do not falter."
Kieran Pradeep - "All the ladders and rungs which I have used to pull myself up in life have been drawn up behind me, removing the social safety net which allowed human beings to be human beings in even the worst of times."
Kieran Pradeep- "I am simultaneously lots of things. Different territories, allegiances and communities overlap me. There is a line running through my life, dividing me. Part of me is there in Northern Ireland and part of me is not included, watching disinterestedly from somewhere else."
