    Isn’t it a pity that the muslin NY terrorist wasn’t obliterated – without injury to his intended victims.

      1. b

        the terrorist not becoming another martyr and instead been shown in courts and chains for the rest of his life is all in all a better solution

        This will be good come on jusayinlike explain what you mean by ‘fake terror merry go round”

            I told you before she’s been indicted in that Clinton pizzagate story, you couldn’t make this stuff up (although in your case you probably could as you’d believe in any old conspiracy nut guff)

    The boy wonder Harris is introducing legislation n that cannot be applied. Close hospitals if they don’t perform? Where would the patients be accommodated?
    Fine them ? So a publically funded hospital gets fined and pays the fine out of – public funds, to the public funds coffer.
    The real issue here is the licensing aspect. Now why specifically a license? Are the private hospitals not currently required to be of particular standards anyway? The public ones employ management that don’t seem to be answerable to anyone.
    Or is it another step closer to an American style health service?.

      Bunty Phipps, who was an early investor in the Ballybough Rejuvenation and Monkey Gland Clinic, tells me that private hospitals in Ireland are not required to be of any standard.

    Davis flip flop. He was clearly playing to the gallery. I suppose the EU has a number of reasons for getting tough on this one. If the British renege on this deal then it doesn’t look good for the next phase. Then there is the fact that the Irish agreement suits the EU because it frames phase two as a soft exit.

    The one to watch here is Labour. Just yesterday Corbyn said there should be more time. The longer this chaos continues, the more they will inch towards some sort of a remain position.

            lol I’m Jools, you’re Jools, he’s Jools, she’s Jools

            is your desperate need for recognition really so overpowering and oppressive?

    1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

      Mr Andy gets VERY worked up about this: he deals with bail applications a lot. Farcical is the correct word.

      1. Brother Barnabas

        Oh dear… he sounds like an awful bore. Is he? Droning on and on about work, completely oblivious to your womanly needs. Poor you. I would never be so insensitive.

    300,000 crimes committed by people on bail. Many with hundreds of convictions. Such a waste of court time and a strain of police resources. At what point does our justice system say enough, off to jail for an extended period with you.

      1. GiggidyGoo

        Let’s license the prisons as well as the hospitals. That’s bound to solve something or other. Let’s also licence people sleeping rough.

    ‘Pension crisis: everyone must put 10% of wages into pension pot’

    That’s all well & good but when people are paying 50% of their wages in rent it’s not going to happen… the property market needs a huge injection of social & affordable housing to avoid things like a pension crisis.

    You can’t continually serve one section of society – landlords without the rest of us having to pay for it long-term. We’re going to have old age pensioners, who never got on the property ladder, who won’t have any asset to pay for a nursing home, who won’t be able to afford rents when they’re no longer working, never mind saving for a pension.

    1. Killian G

      As usual, you are dead right Anne.

      This is a really interesting article. It’s couple years old but still holds.

      https://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/30/opinion/sunday/homeownership-and-wealth-creation.html

      The main point is that “the net worth of homeowners over time has significantly outpaced that of renters, who tend as a group to accumulate little if any wealth.”

      Renters (of which I am one) are in a very precarious situation. \if you are not on the property ladder with a good chance of clearing your mortgage by the age of say 60, you are likely in trouble.

      1. Warden of the Snort

        I don’t know Killian it sounds a bit like more of the elitist middle class aspirational myth

        The key to me is to strengthen the law around habitation standards and maximum costs and move it away from the primacy of private property. A law like this could be passed tomorrow if someone had the balls to bring it through the Dáil

    I always feel slightly troubled about Saoirse, there’s something not quite right behind the act. It’s almost like by trying to not give anything away she reveals everything.

    1. saoirse rules

      You are just jealous that she is talented and you are not, Jools . Simple as and sad that you are so bothered that she is not out behaving like the town screecher.

      1. Jools

        I just think fame sits very uneasily on her. Don’t get me wrong, I think she is a fine actor, a huge talent, but there is something going on behind the mask that I find troubling.

        1. Killian G

          What do you mean “behind the act” and “behind the mask”? Do you know her personally? Does she behave very differently in private?? So the public act is just a big con, is it?

          Would you ever give over and shut your mouth? We are talking about a young woman who is doing very well for herself and to me seems content and balanced. What harm is she doing to you? None. It’s kind of weird that you even give her any thought. Go and get a life for yourself.

        2. anne

          She’s an actor..anything else is none of your business.

          You’re judgement of her speaks more about yourself than her.

          1. ReproBertie

            If she’s an actor then why was she nominated for best actress?

            As usual, it’s one law for the Golden Globe awards organisers and another for the average person in the street.

  7. saoirse rules

    What is going on behind the “mask” that you find “troubling” ? You seem to have such great insight into someone you don’t even know. Perhaps others would find your delusional self a bit troubling. What a load of poo on a Tuesday morn.

    1. Warden of the Snort

      maybe don’t take offense too easily at some other gobspoo mouthing off on the internet?
      It’s just a suggestion

      When people see you doing that you start to look like the unhinged one and most people completely miss any misguided point you’re trying to make

      HTH

      1. saoirse rules

        What point are you trying to make, Warden? Do you ever make a point? Broadsheet should start charging you for the cliched drivel you always spout .Loaded. I say. Loaded

          1. saoirse rules

            You don’t need any help making urself look like an utter fool.. ur a nasty one and it will come back to bite ya some day . Warden will then snort.

          2. Warden of the Snort

            That’s an excellent question thanks Killian

            It meant in this case “hope that helps” but you are free to use the other one if you wish. PS Thanks for your poo socks story yesterday, when people in here go that extra mile to post something genuinely interesting or funny it is warmly appreciated.

          3. Warden of the Snort

            lol @ Anne,

            that was actually funny ;) I prefer that to your miserable stuff to be honest.

          4. saoirse rules

            It’s a pity you never say anything funny or interesting Warden . All you do is insult people ( women in particular) . What is your problem? Share it with us. We would be happpy to help you.

          5. Warden of the Snort

            Hi saoirse rules I’m sorry my occasional posting here doesn’t please you. I must really try harder to impress whatever sick little sock puppet account trolls me in future. Go away now and lie down, it sounds like you need it.

          6. saoirse rules

            you are always having a go at Frilly for starters.You are boring me now , so going to let you off with your snorting . it is the only thing you are good at

          7. Warden of the Snort

            Sorry Frilly

            I’ll try not to call you out for your ridiculous, beaten-dog style support and tolerance for abusive drunks in future.

  8. Jools

    I heard she was in a cult! They worship coleslaw, apparently. Joking aside, maybe there’s nothing going on and maybe it IS just me being jealous of her talent and success. Maybe it’s my institutionalised sexism doing the talking… begrudging a brilliant young woman’s talent and hard-earned success. I don’t do it about Domhnaill Gleeson … and maybe I should get a life … I’m sorry if I offended anyone, it must be awful having to to be in the public eye in order to follow your life’s passion, and suffer the weirdly placed guff that half the dregs of humanity fire at you from anonymous internet identities. Sheesh, I take it all back, I was being a huge jerk.
