    Standing on the grave of George Floyd to try and make a point is shocking. Travellers are not a race.

      The courts have said Irish Travellers are protected against race discrimination because they’re ethnic groups under the Equality Act.

      They are Irish and treated as ethnic blacks during the 60s
      They have a culture and racism is not just against blacks

    Are they going to discuss the Anti-Irish Racism coming from the Taxpayer-funded NGO sector and imported Soros muppets?

    If not it’s just another round of empty headed virtue signalling.

      whenever i read ‘soros’ and ‘virtue signalling’ in a sentence i just think of someone who has a large pile of used tissues under the single bed he sleeps in at his parents house.

    “The Minister’s explanation is seriously deficient and it is also an insult to Traveller artists. When other artists the Department deals with raise issues, are they referred to the Department of Justice and Equality? I have no issue with the Minister of State, Deputy Stanton, who is excellent in his role. I made that clear. I will read out what the Ceann Comhairle said in his letter to me.
    I can understand the frustration of transfers of PQs such as the one cited by you. [This was funding by the Department.] You make a cogent argument in your letter to me as to why the PQ should have been answered by the Minister for Culture rather than the Minister for Justice.
    The Minister has made remarks on previous occasions about Traveller housing and other issues related to Travellers. As the Minister with responsibility for culture, why will she not directly answer questions on Travellers, including the question she previously rejected? Why will she not set up an interdepartmental committee in her Department to bring together Traveller musicians, actors and writers as well as other Travellers who are artists?”

    “I beg to differ with Deputy Burton. It is certainly not coloured by my own views on Travellers. I am sure Deputy Burton is not suggesting that.”

    It would be more in her line to sort out the deaths in custody of Brian Rossiter and Terence Wheelock.

      I believe the expression is “bet into it”.

      I dunno though – there’s something of the Sandra Bullock about her.
