John Lennon’s Rare Letter to Disc Readers

John Lennon’s Rare Letter to Disc Readers

One of the most amazing musicians of all time, John Lennon‘s verified Instagram page has shared an invisible photo of a letter that John Lennon sent to disc readers.

In the letter, he mentioned the song called “The Luck Of The Irish”, and revealed the background to that song.

Here is what is written in that rare letter:

“LETTER TO DISC READERS, 18 January 1972⠀

Dear Readers, We’re glad if our song “The Luck Of The Irish” (all proceeds from this record will go to the Civil Rights Movement in Ireland), has caused you people to discuss what’s going on there… and responding to comments on the situation in Northern Ireland from a reader as reader P. Wakeman says, how would we feel being occupied by Irish troops?

I’m sure we could easily find “at least one million” people in England who would be glad if the situation was reverse.⠀

I hope the readers noticed Raymond Stewarts last name – it is in fact Scottish, right? and it was those special Scots and English that were sent to ‘colonize’ and ‘anglicize’ Northern Ireland in the last century that want to keep Ireland British when in fact IT IS IRELAND!⠀

Whatever anyone says, if you want to be British, Mr. Stewart, I suggest you move to Britain, otherwise leave Ireland to the Irish, P.T.O.”
