Protection And Progress


Taoiseach Leo Varadkar with French Prime Minister Emmanuel Macron during an EU summit in Salzburg, Austria last Summer

This struggle is a daily commitment, because Europe, like peace, can never be taken for granted. I tirelessly pursue it in the name of France to take Europe forward and defend its model. We have shown that what we were told was unattainable, the creation of a European defence capability and the protection of social rights, was in fact possible.

    The Nation State is something to be ashamed of and dismantled, in the eyes of a globalist like Macron. Inequality WILL increase under this philosophy and is being welcomed with open arms by useful idiots of the left. The left will always sacrifice the individual.

      The left’s embrace of this agenda is completely depressing and mystifying. Is it a Fabian thing?.

        I find it so bizarre that the left used to protest the G20 for being globalist and now they protest because it’s not globalist enough

          The protesters are left, the people allegedly representing them (Vacron) are faux left..

    The judgement is available via Orla O’Donnell at RTE here

    “Mr. O’Brien was granted leave to appeal against that costs order but consideration of that question was left
    over until the substantive appeal had been determined. Those costs issues are not, therefore,
    dealt with in this judgment”

    What costs is DOB looking at here? €500,000+ or are we in €1m+ territory again.

    Given the substantive appeal went in favour of the Oireachtas, and the judgement is pretty blunt, suggesting DOB’s case wasn’t “novel” [the threshold for the State to pay DOB’s costs], this could be another expensive week for someone whose net wealth is probably around the €200m mark.

      Yeah last week they (system, MSM) were on the antisemitism matter – it failed miserably. They are still much on the extremes left or right, depending what suits. Macron meanwhile continues those useless “debats” across France.

    The irony of using The Sun, in a way that grants their youtube channel increased visibility, kind of turns the juxtaposition of the piece back on itself no?

    Of all the things we should be burning out of modernity for the sake of there even being a future it is the kind of ethos espoused and peddled by The Sun.

    The shaft is coming soon lads

    And wait till the EU fleets make their way to our grounds when they cannot fish in
    uK grounds
