      Its like sending out a toddler to do a child’s job. Don’t forget once she has a miscarriage or something too so be nice to her.

    We need proper hate crime laws here.

    Some newspapers here would probably be in breach of them with the kind of racist taunting they use in their reporting.

        Do you work for the Independent Group? You tend to defend the police and Fine Gael quite a lot. You get very touch about Gemma O’Doherty too.

          So what you really want to do is silence the freedom of the press if they have ideas you don’t agree with.

    “We are letting the open market solve the many social problems we have” – probable thought process there..
