      It’s disgraceful in this day and age, Ta Frilly Keane. That’s the legacy of Fine Fail/Fine Gael and Labour. I hope people remember this come Election time.

        Water I grew up in an area where plenty of kids attended school hungry, it’s a long term problem and not one that can be blamed on this Gov but successive ones

          This is because dysfunctional parents could not be arsed prepare breakfast. Its not about money – can buy a large bag of porridge for a couple of euro – it’s about the priorities of certain parents. No child goes to school because of Government unless you think it’s Enda’s job to make the kids porridge in the morning…. Now whether the govt needs to fund parenting classes and social workers is another question to address this…..

            I’m sure you didn’t go without breakfast yourself today Miko. The bottom line is that parenting skills aside the lower income cohort has been targeted in the current admin while the public sector simply has been allowed keep emoluments in most cases.

            Miko you sound like a true Fine Gaeler, blaming the lower income families for their own woes. I’d say you hate the working class, like generations of petty Irish snob before you.

            As a working class person growing up in one of the poorest area of Dublin often the parents are to blame, to much of the weekly budget spent on non essential expenditure and terrible parenting

      Blame who ye like
      Governments past n present
      Community Social Services / HSE
      etc etc etc

      I’m going to join in and help the blame along
      And keep the vicious circle of poverty going
      I don’t live my life like that
      Nor do I allow it in my household

      Have a direct and instant impact in your community
      Stump up a dozen eggs once a fortnight to your local Breakfast Club
      Or a few lbs of sausages to an after school homework club
      Cocoa Milk Butter Fresh bread Oranges.
      It doesn’t take much
      Other than getting up off yer hole

      FFS. Sometimes ye really make me sick.

    Distinct lack of homosexualist propaganda this week. I smell fear. They know the number’s aren’t good and they need to tone down the in-your-face strategy or risk losing to common sense.

    We made it to the front page of the IHT (NYT)

    The decision also involved delicate packaging and diplomacy, given the sensitivity in some countries, like Ireland and Sweden, toward the use of military force. Specifically, the proposals were presented as aimed at disabling the smuggling operations behind the migration surge, rather than at the desperate migrants themselves.

    I know we tend to get get caught up in our own worlds, and there is a lot going on this week with the Marriage Equality referendum and Prince Charles’s arrival; but watch out, a pan-European military operation was created. This is something Irish people have in successive first drafting of treaties (Nice and Lisbon) voted against. While the humanitarian crisis in the Mediterranean is awful, it should not be used as an excuse to create a back door to a pan-European Military force.

    You have to question the motives of celebrity doctors. Cutesy female docs giving glossy magazine article type advice.

    Was your GP practise not working out?

      Yeah, gawd forbid actual experts should get involved in spreading medical information.
