      Sometimes two different things happen and they’re not really connected.

      Or maybe it’s a huge conspiracy Daisy…..

        Given the video above I think it might be sensible to err on the side of cynicism in terms of the timing of that story.

          That was pure coincidence, a serendipitous moment of harmony written within our cosmos.

      I wouldn’t worry about the return of funding. If anything that shows the pro-choice side to be more upfront and honest about where their funding is coming from unlike Iona and YD who still have not registered with SIPO.
      To me it means the pro-choice campaigners are more honest about whose interests they are representing – Irish interests, as opposed to some near anonymous financial donor (Soros… and… Christian fundamentalist groups in US) from abroad.

      The prolife crowd wont win on their double standard of whose interests they are representing. Let them hang themselves on that a little….

      This is a decision for the people of Ireland who live here… not fundamentalists from the US, Soros… or the Vatican.

      One cannot give out about Iona, YD and Vatican funding of the prolife side, and accept the prochoice money from Soros at the same time. That would make no sense, to my mind.

      You do see that the only things they’ve done wrong in this article flow from the 8th amendment, right?

      A 5 year old piece of antichoice hysteria? An abortion is an induced miscarriage, telling that to a doctor is totes exactly the same as telling a vulnerable woman or girl that she’ll get breast cancer and “lose the light in her eyes” (??) if she has an abortion.

        Oh dear, looks like there’s no hope for me. Will my soul pour out of my bellybutton, and my nose fall off?

          Your soul gets aborted too. I read that on a totally skientific website and Cora knows of women it happened to and now they regret it… but don’t expect to talk to them about it, only Cora.

      “Save Noirin”!?! Comedy gold – if it wasn’t so disgraceful. At the root of all this is the fear amongst politicians and higher civil servants that if ANYBODY is held accountable for ANYTHING, the bell may one day toll for them.

        I think that story is a kite of some sort and I’m sure Noirin doesn’t need a computer system when it comes to dirt on Leinster House

        the one they all fear is SF

        status quo will be preserved at all costs (including justice)

    Article 50 isn’t even a week old and there’s feckin’ Tories making noises about going to war. What’re they like, FFS?!

      Hold my gun. I’ll have a chat with them.

      Not that it’d make any difference.

      The level of nostalgia they have for the days of empire is incredible. What’s even more incredible is that they’ve sold this nostalgia to the working class who served as cannon fodder for their betters and empire.

        What they should really do is marry off their ginger prince to a European diplomat – like the European royal families would do for appeasement in times of conflict.

          You know who totally got it? Maria Theresa of Austria.

          She knew what she was about. Dynastic matches everywhere.

      We shall fight on the benches
      we shall fight on the airport lounges
      we shall fight in the gentlemen’s clubs
      we shall fight in the halls
      we shall never surrender!

      How is that Brexit working out for them? I think I can understand how World War One came about, if the leaders of the time where anything like the current lots.

        And Franz Ferdinand are playing Central Europe this summer – it’s not looking good.

    Incidentally, when is something going to be done about the ongoing situation with the HSE whereby they seem to feel fully able to flout Freedom of Information legislation and obstruct not only individual families, but the Dail and the Courts themselves, with complete impunity.
