    Nothing like public funds eh? Overrun of almost 50% on the Cork Event Centre. Bam! and the moneys gone.
    And Simon Coveney will ride in on his white election steed to sort it all out.

    What are our favorite family of Irish/English travellers in NZ up to today?

    It seems all but one of the adults returned to Heathrow yesterday. Did they have kindly words for the waiting press? “I’ll break your bones. I’ll break your camera”. They did not. Their Hobbit-sighting holiday of a lifetime in NZ was ruined by the locals, they say.

    The one adult remaining in NZ is being charged with assault and fraud and has been bailed to appear before a court in a fortnight.

    New video emerges purporting to show one of the kids struggling to remove a Christmas tree that’s bigger than him from a store.

    And the mayor of Auckland doubles down on his comments that the family are pigs and worse. The mayor has said he has nothing against the Irish as he’s married to a Moriarty.

    We’re unlikely to have heard the last of these Tasmanian Divils.

    Traffic Wardens are a necessary inconvenience, when you’re caught because your parking ticket is out by five minutes it’s a b1tch but they also cull the 10 seconds brigade from blocking up our streets. Winkers on, I can park anywhere is a mindset that needs to be flushed out. Give them bodycams and prosecute the high horse perpetrators.

    Good news for Limerick and that whole region, US threat of sanctions against the company that owns Aughinish aluminum refinery plant lifted. The market seems to think that’s the end of the matter with the share price firmly recovering, up a third from the middle of January.

    The US Treasury, under Mad Max: Fury Road producer, Steve Mnuchin has issued a statement which says the owner of Aughinish “reduced Oleg Deripaska’s direct and indirect shareholding stake in these companies and severed his control. This action ensures that the majority of directors on the En+ and Rusal boards will be independent directors – including U.S. and European persons – who have no business, professional, or family ties to Deripaska or any other SDN, and that independent U.S. persons vote a significant bloc of the shares of En+.

    The companies have also agreed to unprecedented transparency for Treasury into their operations by undertaking extensive, ongoing auditing, certification, and reporting requirements. All sanctions on Deripaska continue in force.”

    FYI-NYT this am.

    ‘At the fake abortion clinic in Dublin with the giant poster out front — a place called My Options, the same name as the government’s abortion information service — its director, Eamonn Murphy, recalled the shock of the referendum and how it spurred him into action.

    “It was kind of a crucifixion moment,” he said. “But there was a resurrection the same day,” when he decided to establish his operation on an inner-city street, where it is often confused with a women’s health center next door.

    “This is new life,” he continued, as he shuffled through pictures of dead fetuses and studies purporting to link abortion to breast cancer that he shows to women seeking abortions. “This meant more women than ever would be saved from cancer and suicide and depression and drug addiction and abandonment than ever before this law came in.”
