Meanwhile In Tallaght




Anti Austerity Alliance TD Paul Murphy – and other Jobstown protesters who have been served with summonses last night and this morning – hold a press conference at the West Side Boxing Club in Tallaght, Dublin.

They will hold a protest outside the Central Bank in Dublin on Saturday at 1pm before marching to the Criminal Courts of Justice on Parkgate Street, next to Phoenix Park.

    Tis all there for the reading……

    Job 23:

    “Even today my complaint is bitter;
    his hand is heavy in spite of my groaning.
    If only I knew where to find him;
    if only I could go to his dwelling!
    I would state my case before him
    and fill my mouth with arguments.
    I would find out what he would answer me,
    and consider what he would say to me.
    Would he vigorously oppose me?
    No, he would not press charges against me.
    There the upright can establish their innocence before him,
    and there I would be delivered forever from my judge.”

    ““But he stands alone, and who can oppose him?
    He does whatever he pleases.
    He carries out his decree against me,
    and many such plans he still has in store.
    That is why I am terrified before him;
    when I think of all this, I fear him.
    God has made my heart faint;
    the Almighty has terrified me.
    Yet I am not silenced by the darkness,
    by the thick darkness that covers my face.”

    Its a shame its not the football World Cup starting this weekend. That would put an end to the water protesters, for a least a few weeks anyway.

          No, but not noticing the similarities between demographics and appreciating a play on that makes one appear of limited mental capability.

    Is terrible that a so called left wing party like labour has become part of the frightful right. It’s resorting to some of the tactics used by Maggie thatcher during the poll tax protests. Trying to demonise people that where peacefully protesting. Joan should be ashamed to call her self a labour leader when she is as far from the meaning of labour and what the party originally stood for, which is FOR the ordinary working class people of Ireland. She shouldn’t be working for the corporations who cut jobs to increase profits. Shame on Joan burton and Shame on the Labour Party. Larkin is weeping for these turncoats.

    It’s funny reading comments by people looking down on residents of Jobstown. I’d say most of them making the comments barely have to cents to rub together and everything they possess is on credit.

    Tuppence ha’penny.

      My issue is with the faux Joan of Arc martyrdom of Paul Murphy , whenever there is a camera or an audience focused on him.

        True but it is all they have unless you count selected party candidates from Tipperary or Donegal who turn up in these places to run for election, supposedly representing them, and rapidly end up not giving a s**t about them what so ever. The game is twice as cynical as the player. Do I agree with what they did. That’s irrelevant for this conversation. The fact that they were in all essence completely abandoned by the people who were supposed to be ‘their people’ (The Labour Party) kinda leaves them with nowhere to turn. They’ve done their own thing when nobody listens. Democracy I believe its called ………… I hear your laughing from here :-)

      Im debt free actuallt Mr T – I just went out and got an education and a job so have better things to be doing on a Tuesday afternoon.

      Not really sure what relevance your comment has. Rather then find a reason to defend the residents of Jobstown and this ‘new’ protest, you just implied that all others are broke.

      My financial position has no link nor similarities to my faded interest in all things Paul Murphy.

    The problem is that Paul “Elmo” Murphy thinks he is above the law. Once he drapes a protest banner over his activities, then anything goes regardless of the law. I think it would be good to give this a run out in court even though I am not entirely sure they can make anything stick.

    There’d be some stink of sweat in that place. Back when gym halls were gym halls, not these prissy places now with machines to run on and tv’s and soft furnishing to sit on while lifting weights using poor technique..

      That smell is the left over Euro cheese which FF somehow thought would save us plebs from recession.

      If you’re going to give out about Paul Murphy (who I’ve no time for and the Jobstown antics were idiocy imo) acting the martyr, you need to include Joan “Political Prisoner” Burton who wouldn’t know an actual violent protest if it kicked her dumb ass all the way back to Dublin West.
