    If anyone’s in the vicinity of Derry tomorrow, I’d say this event would be well worth going along to. Wish I could go!
    “Imperialism on Trial” with speakers such as independent investigative journalists Eva Bartlett and Vanessa Beeley – both have visited Syria several times in recent years. Bartlett also lived in Gaza a number of years and recently visited North Korea. The former British Ambassador to Syria, Peter Ford, is speaking too.

    “Bartlett, along with dozens of other independent journalists, has been working for years to counter the daily propaganda put out by supposedly ‘neutral’ or ‘objective’ media outlets, who are all determined to tell us who our enemies are and to justify barbaric wars of aggression against dozens of nations.”

      Beeley and Bartlett are fascists and conspiracy theorists who spend their lives promoting the agenda of holocaust deniers, white nationalists and weirdos such as Alain Soral, Dieudonne, Laurent Louis, Gilad Atzmon, Henrik Palmgren, Thierry Meyssan, Ryan Dawson, Ian Crane and pedophile cult person Zen Gardner. One hopes that anyone in Derry who is opposed to the far right will give them the reception that such people deserve.

        So speaking out about the imperialist agendas and propaganda of certain Western nations means you’re on the far-right and promoting the agendas of fascist-holocaust-denier-white-supremacists? I guess the ex-British ambassador to Syria, Peter Ford, must be doing the same by sharing the same platform as Bartlett and Beeley?
        You seem like an eminently sensible person Alan.

    Is Jennifer Bray no longer with the Irish Daily Mail? Now The Times Irish Edition it would appear

    It isn’t actually a straight ‘yes or no’ referendum. Vote ‘yes’ to repeal it, but if you vote no, you must also accept that the Oireachtas will then have the power to make the laws around it’. To me, there should be two referendums. One with a simple ‘yes or no’ question about repealing, and another one with a simple ‘Yes or no’ about the power-giving.
    The optics of the announcement – a gay, a lesbian and a newly wed – wasn’t great. I can’t see the FG farmers down the country taking to those three dictating to them.

      I’ve seen commentary that says the bit to give power to the Oireachtas to legislate is to prevent other bits of the Constitution being used to reinstate 8th amendment conditions.

      just like the fg farmers didn’t like being dictated to during the marriage referendum.
      wait… maybe farmers are as rationale as urbanites?

      1. GiggidyGoo

        Slightly different i’d think. Coveney is the farmers choice for FG leader. They will probably have the same outlook as him in this..

      My understanding is that we either vote
      No: no change to the constitution.
      Yes: Remove the 8th and replace it with some wording to say that the limits for abortion will be a Dáil matter. Then the Dáil will enact legislation to say when/how abortion can be done.

      in either case the Dáil can legislate how they like (within the confines of the Constitutional protection).

        This has nothing to do with an opinion different to mine.
        Another black and white fool I see Topsy.

        This is the absolutely vicious and aggressive manner, especially online, they push their opinion on people. Much of which is based on religious beliefs and not scientific fact.

      They’re dwindling though. Pro Lie groups have had to import American antichoice protesters to do the jobs that Irish antichoice won’t do. The crowd outside the Dail aren’t local and, rather insidiously, have bodycams along with their abortion fetish porn posters.

      1. Increasing_Displacement

        Those posters are rough, how are they allowed that? Most of which are late term abortions, which will not be allowed here, for their own gains.

    That’s good news about the sweatband rather than fingerprick (PRICK!) test for diabetes. I cannot tell you how much of a pain in the hoop finger prick (PRICK!) tests a few times a day can be.
