      Frustrated that you don’t control women’s healthcare anymore?

      It’s good to know that 6,666 women received appropriate health care last year. And it’s good to be reminded that there are still a lot of nut jobs out there so that we remain vigilant to ensure that women in our state continue to be able to access the health care they need.

      So that’s an average of 18 women every day of the year who didn’t have to make the harrowing journey to the UK for abortion.
      Year in year out for all those years.
      Extraordinary figures and a remarkable testament to the efforts of abortion campaigners to drag this country kicking and screaming into the 21st century.
      The Catholic church slips into even more irrelevance in another country.

          And there are several pictures of politicians with clergy who facilitated and covered up abuse, FF supporting Bill Kenneally etc. But because O’Gorman is gay, a photo op with a prominent campaigner is twisted into a guilt by association thing.

    The Royal Family- with a stiff upper lip-has Micheal paid his respects or is Simon,interesting who gets Trump.

    “Today, The Queen spoke to President Trump by telephone from Windsor Castle ahead of Independence Day in the United States on the 4th July.”

        July 4th at US Embassy in Dublin was legendary, then Ryan few his mates stared boycott the US Ambassadors party….he was quite loud about the whole thing, very undiplomatic actually.

    So Leo and his partner only paid €25 a night each for their 9-week stay in the upmarket Farmleigh Estate during the pandemic.
    While his government aggressively pursued AirBnB owners blaming them for the shortage of rental accommodation in Dublin.

      how many airbnb owners had action – any action, not just “aggressive” – taken against them since July 1, 2019?

      a full year ago today…

        Private landlords in certain defined areas are only allowed to rent out their property for 90 days annually.
        As the legislation was only brought in on July 1st 2919 a full year has only just happened.
        The aggressive action was the law itself.

    Interesting to see Sir Kier Starmer’s rapid backtrack on support for BLM after their “defund the police ” call.
    Only a few days ago Max Headroom was gullibly taking a knee for them.
    https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/sir-keir-starmer-takes-a-knee-in-support-of-black-lives-matter-movement/ar-BB15g8uV

    Of course it could be that BLM rather ungratefully responded by calling him a cop in an expensive suit.
    Although the word is Labour has done some private polling and been alarmed at how many of their supporters are outraged at the antics of BLM and the media bias shown towards them.
    Apparently the grafitti attack on the statue of Blighty’s wartime hero Winston Churchill struck a raw nerve.
    Sound like the Premier League is also getting jittery that their BLM slogans on shirts are a political statement.
    It’ll be interesting to see if they dare to use them when supporters are allowed back into the grounds to give their response.
    So many fools have been duped so easily by BLM with the liberal media’s fawning consent.
    Just as with Brexit and the collapse of Labour at the last election Twitter and the media totally fail to reflect real life.

      The main reason there is so much pull back from BLM is that most people never looked beyond the feel good slogan and once they did, it was a bit of a ewww moment.

          When you have the leader of the Labour party pulling back because of their anti Israel comments at the weekend and a group of Premier League captains considering whether to make a public statement- in the context of the original comment, I think it is fair to ‘most people’.

          They are a Marxist organisation Nigel- its on their bloody website.

            It’s a populist grass roots movement with no central organisation. The right’s really got everyone bullied into submission don’t they? Just bellowing Marx is enough to get you and the Labour leader and the footballers cringing back in line.

          2. SOQ

            The core point is they are a political organisation and the promotion of such is banned in the Premier League.

            BLM woes continue.
            Seattle police have begun clearing out the “occupied” area known as the Capitol Hill Organized Protest, CHOP, making more than a dozen arrests so far.
            Mayor Jenny Durkan declared the gathering an unlawful assembly, having previously described the protest as ” a summer of love. ”
            Since demonstrators took over the area on June 8, a series of late-night shootings have killed two teenagers and seriously wounded three other people. Police said other violent crimes, including robberies and assaults have also been documented in the area.
            Good luck with your defunding the police nonsense Nigel.

    The fact that he was staying there was reported in May.
    The amount he was paying has only just been released under the Freedom of Information Act.
    Which is why it’s reported in today’s newspapers.

      Charger, you have a bit of a cheek telling people to (wrongly) keep up. How about you answering my question on your darling British press and the way they have reported the Madeline McCann case. I have asked you a few times and you refuse to answer a simple question. You keep bleating on about how superior the British are to the rest of Europe so a simple question (for the fourth time). So come on old boy, do you agree with the way the Daily Mail, etc have reported in a disgraceful way the latest “suspect”, to boost sales?

          All right, all right old boy, getting a bit touchy. Your failure to answer a simple question says it all. You’re clearly not the sharpest knife in the drawer either when you can’t follow simple sentences. I’ll say it very simply for you and this time you might get it. I don’t have any interest in this new German “suspect”, it’s your darling British press do, and are flogging ridiculous stories about him daily. So do you agree with this, given that they have twice in the past named and shamed two other individuals. Both of these were 100% cleared with one getting £600k from the British tabloids. Hope you can follow that old boy.

            Just as an aside on the German, Germany has some rule about no extradition to non-EU countries so if he is a suspect he only has to hang on a little longer.

          2. Joe F

            I have as much chance as being convicted as he has. In my humble opinion, there is far more evidence pointing towards the parents. I admit I could be wrong. I think the only people who know 100% are the person/people responsible. Scotland Yard -have a lot to answer for. They are going gung ho for the abduction theory exclusively, and trying to work backwards to find someone. This guy CB, and I won’t mention his name in full although his full name and picture is everywhere, is a low life of the highest order. But the “evidence” linking to him is flimsy, and that is been very generous. There are far more definite concerns linking parental involvement, I won’t list them here, I will if you ask me to. Scotland Yard, by ruling out their parents as possible suspects are failing big time in their task.

            So, in summary, I don’t know who done it. I suspect maybe 80% the parents. I suspect CB at most 5%, he’s simply a scapegoat.

    Excellent interview of British pathology professor, Dr. John Lee, by Irish Chemical Engineer Ivor Cummins. .Lee articulates very well why he believes the lockdown approach to the Covid healthcare crisis has been a catastrophic failure in policy underpinned by scientific negligence within the medical professional establishment. They both emphasise the necessity of facing this reality in order to change our current course and to avoid repeating the same mistakes in future.

    Key moment in the UK parliament last night.
    The government’s points-based immigration bill cleared the final parliamentary hurdle to become law – by a majority of 104 – ensuring free movement will cease when the Transition Period comes to an end.
    As you’d expect and showing they’ve learned nothing from their general election hockeying not a single Labour MP voted for it.
    Yesterday also marked the last possible opportunity for Britain to request an extension to the transition period.
    As promised by the Government, yesterday’s deadline under Article 132 of the Withdrawal Agreement came and went without such a request, meaning Britain is now committed by international treaty to become fully independent on 31st December 2020.
    We’ll try not to slam the door on the way out.

I must say old boy you have a very balanced attitude – the chip on both your shoulders are quite evenly matched.
