      Try giving our Prez a break. Some of the most outrageous war criminals in history have been eulogised in the not too distant past. If a lucky bomb landed on Basher Al Assad tomorrow, we might have a national day of mourning. Bit of proportion please.

        PS on another note, our Government are urging a drugs Company to “put people before profit”. Does anyone else notice something radically wrong with this statement??

        Chill yer boots boss, as I said earlier, I forgive MDH his eulogy of Castro and have moved on.

        But… I can’t read the above mesaage he has written and am just curious.

        MDH rules OK !

            Whereas you confirm to the stereotype of “The Irish; a great nation of writers. Not a great nation of readers.”

            You hung yourself.

      “Michael D Higgins
      Uachtarán na hÉireann
      President of Ireland
      On behalf of the people of Ireland to express their sympathy to the people of Cuba on the passing of former Head of State Fidel Castro Ruz. Con la sympatica de la ??”

      (With sympathy from the ?? – even with fierce squinting I can’t make out that last word.)

        Ah, big fan of Guantanamo Bay and all that goes with it, Jusayinlike? Right so, now we know what we’re dealing with.

          In fairness, those counter-revolutionary traitors* that didn’t end up in a shallow grave were able to keep that world-class health system ticking along nicely.

            Didn’t have much choice did they? Hardly time for anyone to get their hair done and be Rhona O’Mahoney when a firing squad is your motivator.

            give me the Blackrock Clinic private anyway

      How can you say that? This is DeV/Hitler all over again! The World’s media will be informing their mobs and an international day of pointing at Ireland and muttering will be organised. At this very moment Trump is dancing a merry jig at losing his title of most hated head of state. Woe! and probably Ochón!
