Meanwhile, In Bow Street


This morning.

    This is nice and all. And the Capuchins do heroic work.

    But politicians, especially Government politicians, have no business visiting charity food banks or charity homeless centres…..unless its to explain themselves or beg forgiveness from those using them.

    (See also Mins Joan Burton opening a charity food bank years ago)

      Good point.

      It’s mad that in the 21st century food banks are more needed than ever, in modern democratic societies! Humanity is going backwards in so many ways. Or maybe its just our politicians? Greed etc

      Most of the funding for these services comes from the exchequer – politicians are the elected representatives of those who fund the exchequer. Why shouldn’t our representatives be there.

    What would a Taoiseach and minister celebrate the fact that the volunteers of god have been feeding starving people in this country.

    I hope Brother Kevin and colleagues took the opportunity to chastise successive government failure to grapple with the lack of affordable local authority housing.

    You’re right, the homeless volunteers should not get a photo op. Maybe they can get extra donations… or no keyboard shinners and other “I know all about homelessness”” will win he day. Go on Goo – Queen or the Republic. V – why try to get me edited?

      Jeez, you have it bad. You’re all over the shop again. Are the politicians homeless volunteers? I’m sure there are specialists who can help you. A Person may be able to help? Pro Bono even?

      1. Anti Bots

        Typical shinnerbot. Can’y reply to a question, can’t address an issue, can’t provide a solution. Just moan about every govt except your own in the nordy land. The photo op was obviously for the homeless centre not a politician. I know, you can’t grasp this, but if you were involved in any charity you will realize that photo ops raises money.

        Go on, who pays you, Queen or the Republic? One question – go on answer it. I dare you.

          1. Anti Bots

            Still can’t answer a question. It is the Queen. Dear oh dear, and you give out to Charger. Are you not embarrassed? You’ll have to change your name again.

            One name only for me here,
            Not like….. A Person. AKA Anti Bots

            Now troddle along and post something we can understand.
