    Telegraph – Tories who voted for Covid passes are traitors, Omicron no worse than flu says government advisor, Duke’s accuser may have “false memories”… it all bodes well in Bozzo-Bozzo-Land…

      To be fair, saw the headline, “Rebels”, it made me think of my family, “The Rebels, O’Neill” , I wondered what we were up to?

    ‘Catherine Austin Fitts is an American investment banker and former public official who served as managing director of Dillon, Read & Co. and, during the Presidency of George H.W. Bush, as United States Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development for Housing.’

    This was the most illuminating 1 1/2 hours I’ve spent, getting to grips with the machinations of the central banking system. There’s some remarkable revelations & an in depth analysis of the players involved. To have someone that’s both worked in government & Wall Street – relate the inner workings – and the shifting global power system, is a real gift.

        “At the helm of the bank she became what Businessweek described as “Wall Street’s foremost champion” of public utilities bonds.”

        Funny, I can’t find any citations for ‘North Gay George’s Treat’. It would appear to be a scurrilous & pathetic attempt at dismissing a highly qualified voice, based merely on their Christian beliefs.

    If you are not aware of the Star Hobson story then save yourself the anguish and leave it that way. I wish I had not looked further. I saw the beautiful pictures and just assumed it was a little kid at Christmas type picture. It’s beyond comprehension.

    Godspeed little one.

      Do read it. It’s important.

      A disgusting murder of a little girl by two women. RIP.

      (There is now a counterbalance debate to be had about transwomen, safe spaces, and male violence. But today is not the day.)

        It leaves a terrible weight reading about such suffering inflicted on one so young and vulnerable.

        Such a beautiful little girl.

    Re: the lottery headline on the IDM, I’ve heard radio ads for a *guaranteed* 1 million winner for New Year’s Eve.

    How does that work?

    Can I pull a Cian?

    1. Steph Pinker

      … speaking of politics and its lackeys, I haven’t been aware of politicians paying *cough* for ads in newspapers for a while. Do taxpayers have that much money to spare just to hear one’s own Echo… echo… ech… all the way to Brussels?

      It’s nearly enough to make one create a political *party* and apply for charity status, because of the L’oreal I’m Worth It Attitude – oui? Speaking of which, where are Mick Wallace and Claire Daley nowadays?

      “Mr Hand said if he had not deleted the photograph he would have remained locked out of his account, which he depended on for his work.”
      A journalist who freely admits that he depends on Twitter for his work?
      How embarrassing for him..

      1. Gearoid

        Why embarrassing?
        Broadsheet would be at a loss without a Twitter.
        Nearly ever thread yesterday – 11 in total – relied on Twitter links.
        Information is power baby.

        And right on cue, the Boxy alias is re-ignited.
        Scan the code. You know it makes sense. As true today as it was when it first appeared.
        The kellys baby having some fun other than in the ball pit today. The kiddies klub must be closed. Aw!

    Public to be asked to upload dash cam footage of motoring offences to be used in prosecutions.

    If it is used, then the person who uploads it would be called as a witness to the fact that he/she made the recording. I can’t see many people volunteering for that.

          1. GiggidyGoo

            Of course I am. Sure doesn’t it keep your multiple aliases in tip top condition?
            (Scan the code)

            I’m loving the fact I’m living rent free in your head now lad and I see other commentators are also picking up on your little foibles. Drive on, she’s no relation!

    1. Liam Deliverance

      @Giggidy – they need to do something, road user standards have gone to the dogs, in Dublin city anyway, I would suggest AGS but I have been beside them in traffic while we both watched some road users dangerously break the law and they did nothing, RSA have been very quiet too, hell in a hand cart

      1. GiggidyGoo

        I’ve noticed a deterioration is driving standards over the past while – countrywide. Whether it’s the short evenings or what, people seem to like the middle of the road a lot of the time.

    ..thank God no FG supporter and pillar of Irish society is involved,if only Ireland would do something like send more money to Haiti,say via a charity run by the one the only Dennis O’Briibe.

    ‘Poor Haiti, one thing after another,” Francis said at his weekly general audience. “They are a people who are suffering. Let us pray, pray for Haiti. They are good people, good people, religious people. But they are suffering much.”


    How much irish money has this two bit hustler gamed ?

    This was just recently-FFS if it was a public company,he would have been removed long ago.

    ‘Obviously, I am proud of Ireland’s role in the developing world but this is a blot on our reputation. Facebook continues its role in the propagating hatred, racism and misinformation without any check.

    Make no mistake about it, Facebook is as insidious as it is pernicious. It is time for the Irish Government, the EU and the United States to take action.

    Finally, I think that one topic which needs to be front and central to the future of the world is…….philanthrocapitalism.…..’

            I have a question about cooperatives as well
            Aren’t they even more delinquent in many ways than the Charities?
            Totally self-governing and out of the reach of most regulation

          3. johnny

          4. V aka Frilly Keane

            Any of the co-ops I’m familiar with
            Or engaged with Oh Ugh
            Are strictly regulated, including their Boards and Senior Mgt Staff
            Could be by the Central Bank or the PRA
            Where ever they list, FTSE NYSE DAX
            The Housing Agency
            AML / DP
            So you will have to be more explicit when you say Coops are delinquents
