    Re the SF ad on the front page of the Longford Leader, do political parties still do church gate collections? Haven’t seen one in more than a decade.

      Mickey D Hobbit is another lying Labour tic sponging off the people: he is installed at the vice-regent’s palace in order to give legal cover to the unlawful actions of a drunk parliament. He told fibs to get that position and he has been found out. As a result he is now receiving the disrespect he deserves.

      If he doesn’t like it let him resign.

      1. ABM

        The man has made a lifelong career out of jumping from sinecure to sinecure.

        It’s no wonder he thinks he’s a monarch (and expects everyone to treat him as such).

        What ever happened to his “National Ethical Debate” initiative that he was so enthusiastic about during the election campaign? I suspect he’s too busy snuggled up in his armchair reading erotic poems and looking at the deer (yes, deer) through his binoculars.

        The man takes Holy Communion (yet denies Christmas exists, signed in abortion and thinks he can opine publicly on theological matters), loves Gaza (and doesn’t care about the sizable Ireland-Israel economy), speaks in a faux regal accent (yet went to Saint Flannan’s) and goes to St Vincent De Paul soup kitchens to pay lip service to the Dublinhomeless problem (afterwards driven back to the Viceregal’s Lodge in the Phoenix park where many homeless people sleep in tents). Plus, he can’t even dress himself properly (though in fairness to the tailors, they had an almighty job on their hands to fit his figure into white tie for his hot dinner at Windsor).

          Enough about the Arch-Bishops and Bishops and Priests you hold in such reverence already.

          At least if i applied most of that which you have written to any cleric of the Catholic Church most of that would fit. Funny that.

          Your assumptions about the man’s opinion of himself is just that, your assumptions. And I’ve seen and read your hate filled nonsense assumptions and bestowed privileges of rite on members of the RCC so your opinion to me is just comedy fluff from the RCC lunatic fringe :)

          Keep on deluding !

  2. ABM

    Yes, Kathy Sheridan, of course you can have your own Syriza (but only if you say “please”).

    They’re called Sinn Fein. And they don’t take too kindly to Oirish Times dinosaurs who are paid to opine in dead tree format.

  3. Soundings

    “Das ist Deutschland” (that is Germany) says the BGS above above a snowy picture of Auschwitz 2.

    Are the Germans laying claim to Poland again?

  4. Soundings

    The British press are all atizzy with the reporting of the Litvenenko inquiry, traces of nuclear material detected across London etc.

    Remember though, the Brits only decided to have this inquiry after Russia took a position in Ukraine’s turmoil last year.

    …the honeymoon would appear to be over for Squee. It was well aired here how he signed through the water legislation with undue haste. The very least he could have done was summon a council of state. It’s one thing to be another labour factotum doing the bidding of the blueshits but to be seen to be such when it comes to such a divisive piece of legislation shows a total disconnect with the people who voted for him and is unforgiveable.

    1. Clampers Outside!

      Would you say the same of the Shinners who were ALL behind the bill until they lost a seat and then flip flopped on the whole thing to gain favour and votes… no, I didn’t think so.

      1. bisted

        …I’m an embittered ex-labour supporter who was betrayed by the current leadership who sacrificed fundamental labour principles for power and pensions. Squee was one of the last vestiges of decency in that party which I supported (and worked for on occassion). Of course he has to work within the constraints of his office but he was also in a position to acknowledge the huge disquiet and divisiveness this draconian legislation has caused – not least the apparant haste that it has been propelled through the system.
        I’m not a shinner and have never voted for them but I take immense pleasure from the unease that their inexorable rise seems to cause among the great and the good.

        1. Clampers Outside!

          Yeah, but would you be comfortable with being governed by a man who knowingly set free paedophiles and rapists who have since raped and abused again and yet he refuses to assist authorities in getting them before the courts?

          Not me anyway.

          1. bisted

            …I’m guessing you are not talking about cardinal Sean Brady there but the charge could equally be levelled. The difference is the tentacles of the catholic church are all-pervasive. Their mailgn and sinister influence has been enabled by every government since the foundation of the state and, should the shinners get into power, I wouldn’t expect anything to change with regard to church/state relations.
            So, me neither…but for different reasons

          2. Clampers Outside!

            No. This is a secular country with yes, too many interfering church tentacles, but no clergy was ever Taoiseach.

            And having a Taoiseach who knowingly set loose paedophiles and rapists to carry out their actions again on an unknowing public will not happen on my watch, no funkin way.

          3. bisted

            …a secular country…really…with blasphemy laws which are the envy of religious cranks throughout the world and an education system which is almost completely controlled by the catholic church. No clergy was ever taoiseach but they didn’t have to be for their remit to run.
            Come the next election, a govrnment will be formed. That’s democracy whether or not you (or I) like it. It looks like the numbers will dictate a coalition between FF and FG but if the numbers dictate a government including or lead by SF would you dispute the democratic will of the people?
