    We’re not being dragged into the 21st century here, are we?

    What about our sovereign need to have someone to look down on? (unmarried mothers, poor people, working class, the sick, you know the type)

    How can we satisfy our craving for middleclass-ness if these foreigners start interfering and leave us with no one to mistreat coz they’re below us???

    Tough first few days on the job for Frances Fitzgerald. But I don’t have too much pity for her. I’ve yet to hear a word from her mouth that even resembles genuine sympathy with any of the victims of the plethora of human rights abuses listed here.

    I think they need to stop using exclamation marks!
    The symphysiotomy saga SHOULD keep people awake at night. It makes my stomach turn. The Catholic Church is morally bankrupt. I have no problem with people’s beliefs, but I think the Church should be dismantled.
