    Looks like the NCH cost will increase by 40% according to Tom Parlon. BAM must be rubbing their hands in glee. 40% = ?% in reality.
    Time to level the site and turn it into a car park or else sell on to build apartments. Varadkars Vanity project is a waste of money and should be able to be built a lot cheaper. This is Varadkars equivalent to the Bertie Bowl only with an astronomical price tag.

      WHO’s bias towards China has been obvious since last December. But what I find downright sinister is how the social media platforms like YouTube are banning anything which challenges the WHO narrative. In effect, silicon valley is dancing to the tune of the Chinese Communist Party.

    In other news, the knives are coming out for Eamon Ryan. The Green Party must have a leadership election. One of the The feelings within the Green Party is that he’s run his course, and that a more mature leader is now required….Catherine Martin.

    I wonder has Dan Boyle any insights, or will he just faff around as per usual?

            …reconcile it whatever way you please but you are merely making up the numbers and maintaining the right wing status quo…admittedly, that’s what half the electorate voted for but half didn’t…and the half that didn’t included the greens in their preferences…
