          Maybe it’s because no new news as good news and it’s now old news
          So is that good news
          Anyway I am now on a diet of bananas and watched a documentary narrated by woodie harrilson called the war of the planet of apes

        I believe language is being used regarding a 15% wage rise being demanded by public sector unions
        If you think Sinn Féin’s money tree is pretty big wait until you see the public sectors-giant redwood money trees that the government and its employee hero’s have
        And we ask who is going to pay for it
        Well it’s pretty obvious

    Tesla’s stock price now down 44.5% year to date (and its still massively over valued on any relative peer group comparison basis) – I think uncle Elon will be away working on much less ambitious projects now for a while – big big fines for trying to go walkabout on Twitter – It would be hilarious if it ends all with some kind of personal bankruptcy as its very hard to see him be able to raise that missing $20-$30 billion now to finance that deal he signed at $54 – even a bit of Flavins real oat porridge may be in the offing ? The going rate for shower protection just got bid up.

      1. stephen moran

        I’ve no idea what you mean ? But If you think Elon was going to morph into the guardian angel of free speech then I think you are seriously off base and very naive – as I’ve said before only 30% of the global lives in what could be termed a democracy. The EU has its own new rules on hate speech etc and If Musk was planning to let the dregs on society back on well he was going to get his ass fined back to Saffersville. The part time libertarian Ayn Rand loons (who have some fairly quirky ideas on what constitutes freedom) the Putler rent boys here have yet to explain to me how free speech works in the totalitarian fascist workers paradises of Russia, China most of the Middle East, large swathes of Africa and even with the Hindi Nationalism of Modi. So in sum this free speech thing was total bulls*** cubed.

        1. TenPin Terry

          Does this ” free speech thing ” include calling Muslims ragheads, No Followers™ ?

          1. stephen moran

            Hope you enjoyed the explainer on Article 13.8.

            Champions of free speech and NDAs. Musk & Trump two peas in the same narcissistic pod of lawlessness.

          2. TenPin Terry

            You seem strangely reluctant to explain your Muslims are ragheads comment.
            Which is unusual for a man who likes to call others racist.
            Perhaps such hypocrisy explains why no-one follows you on Twitter.
            Put up or shut up.

          3. scottser

            Ha, two-face at it again.

        2. K. Cavan

          For once, stephen, you are correct in that Free Speech will not be tolerated, especially on Twitter, where the Commies larp. If Musk frees it up, Biden & his fascist goon squad will shut it back down again, no government as spectacularly incompetent as his can do without wholesale censorship.
          Thank goodness the clown show will be over soon anyway, the midterms will see him become a lame duck as the Democrats’ goose gets cooked.
          In Biden’s latest loss-of-function moment, Michelle Obama was the Vice President. Ah sure they all look the same to Smokin’ Joe.

    A good exclusive in the Daily Express today which reports that as well as making extensive cash donations and publicly supporting charity appeals, members of the Royal Family are understood to be providing accommodation for refugees from Ukraine.
    Very discreetly the unamed Royals are working behind the scenes on a number of projects and want to keep their contribution private.
    Earlier this week on a tour of Canada, Charles and Camilla met Ukrainian refugees in Ottawa, where Camilla told one family who had left the father behind to fight: “We are so behind you. We do worry about you so much.”
    The Very Reverend Volodymyr Kouchnir, Dean of the St Sophie Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral in Montreal, praised the Royal Family for their support and told Charles and Camilla: “We are sincerely grateful to the Royal Family, to Her Majesty, and to you for personally for your help and support for Ukraine, which today is fighting for democratic values.”
    I wonder if Ireland’s President has taken time out from his packed schedule of speeches pontificating on more help for Ukrainian refugees to actually house some himself – he must have a grand empty house going begging as he lowers his well-upholstered backside into bed at Áras an Uachtaráin every night.

        And god if Boris is unseated it will be by the guy who was head of the CPS while the investigation to get savile was closed down
        I say rather Boris party in his pants Johnson that a person who could of exposed savile years earlier

          If Sir Keir Something accidentally wins an election, my bet is he’ll make history by resigning immediately, rather than face the terror of being forced to make decisions about anything important or unimportant, actually.
          While there’s no doubt he’s the most incompetent eejit ever to be leader of the Labour party or any party, he has his good points, the most important of which is that he’s clearly aware of his own breathtaking incompetence & his lack of charisma & experience & leadership qualities & decisiveness & anything else required for the job of PM, he shouldn’t even be in politics, really.
          Indeed, you could say that as Labour leader, he isn’t really.

          1. Mad

            I have to agree.
            He reminds me of some of the older patrician Liberal leaders like David Owen though some of them did eventually turn out to be of some substance.
            Maybe he just needs more schooling for the televisual/twitter age but the overall effect is indeed underwhelming to date.

    As I was enjoying a few late al fresco snifters on a balmy Southern Med night I missed seeing the Late Late Show special on the FAI’s 100th anniversary and all of Irish football’s great successes.
    How on earth did they fill the show after that five seconds was over ?

    3. TenPin Terry

      Even rarer than Ireland managing a win these days are the virtue-signallers on here bleating about how wonderful the Black Lives Matter movement is.
      Time was when they’d be falling over each other to take the virtual knee.
      Perhaps they’ve seen the US tax documents which show BLM founder Patrisse Cullors paid from the outfit’s funds $970K to a company owned by the father of her child to produce “live events” and $870K to her brother for security services.
      Greenbacks certainly matter for her but fair play for duping the simpletons on here.

      1. bisted

        …where Patrisse has gone wrong is that she didn’t make herself CEO of the charity…she could have made a virtue of it…even developed a sense of entitlement and run for president…mind you…Major Toms daughter in blighty seems to be drawing a lot of flak from the pessky press despite conferring herself as a CEO…

    4. GiggidyGoo

      When tourists are in a restaurant and want to eat outside, they usually say they want to eat ‘al fresco’. This is a funny mistake. In Italian, the expression has a completely different meaning. ‘Al fresco’ literally means ‘in prison’! The reason why it means that is probably because in the past, prisons were very cold places with thick walls (‘fresco’ means ‘cold’).

      Hahaha. SailorGerry might be able to put you right Charger. Go down to the Mardyke this afternoon and ask him.

      1. Mad

      I hope the violence isn’t due to all those Ukranians avoiding conscription who have arrived here recently.

      1. SOQ

        Those in the east are probably first language Russian speakers, so likely evacuated to Russia.

        Any Ukrainians I have met in Ireland before all this started, were old school left wing.

        The Derry Girls sketches- pay attention- what were they fleeing from?

        1. K. Cavan

          I only ever met one Ukrainian & after I knew him for a few weeks he told me he was Russian. Anyway, I was watching a UK journalist interviewing a recruiter for the Azovs who scouted football matches for new talent. The games featured much finely-synchronised mass Séig Heiling but always with the full Roman salute, starting with the arm across the chest, not that prissy German one.
          “So, you’re a follower of Nazism?” the reporter asked him, “yes but only the positive aspects” he replied.

      1. SOQ

        Unlike yourself, Dave actually has something to say. I don’t agree with him on everything but it would be a very boring world if we were all the same.

        Three months in prison for not wearing a mask was ridiculous. And then, all of a sudden, they waved the high hand and along with all the other restrictions, said they were no longer needed. None of it made sense.

        1. anti bot

          look at me driving like a willyhead, whilst I post a video online. Another liar. Nobody has every been imprisoned for 3 months for not wearing a mask. But the liars on hear will pile in.

        2. Ten Pin's Fictitious Mrs.

          ‘I don’t agree with him on everything but it would be a very boring world if we were all the same.’

          1. SOQ

            In what way is she a crank for refusing to wear what is now widely regarded as being filthy cloth stupid silliness?

          2. Tom J

            Yeah, millions of people all over the world wore filthy cloths. Would you snap out of it and get a grip on reality.

        4. K. Cavan

          The facts about masks are simple, SOQ.
          Size of Coronavirus 0.06 to 0.14 Microns
          Pores in Surgical Mask 1 to 10 Microns
          Gaps at side of Surgical Mask 2,500 Microns
          To avoid bacterial & other infections it’s recommended to discard each mask after 4 hours use.
          Masks are made of microplastics such as polypropylene, polyethylene terephthalate, polystyrene, polycarbonate & polyester & pieces of these materials have been found deep in the lower lungs of every subject checked for them. The substances are inert, so don’t provoke an allergic response but scar tissue builds up around them, reducing lung function. They also end up in the water supply, thus making their way into the food chain & in March this year, pieces were even found in patients’ blood. The material lasts for thousands of years before degrading, scientists have calculated.
          The scar tissue develops slowly, so will be unlikely to effect adults but children who were forced to wear them for long periods are unlikely to avoid breathing issues, later in life.

      2. K. Cavan

        Devastating critique, Tom J, you’re becoming almost human-like, such is your command of the written word.
        A little note of caution, though, you should flush that stuff down the toilet, rather than eating it.

      1. GiggidyGoo

        Professor McProbablyPossiblyCouldbe
        ‘ It’ll probably be one these three: first there’s a toxin that could be in the environment from chemicals that we’re exposed to – or in our food chains, which are very international as we all know.

        “The second interesting possibility is that it could be a new virus – and we’re all, of course, familiar with SARS-CoV-2 that didn’t exist two or three years ago.

        “So this could be a new virus: people are looking for ‘Hepatitis H’ virus – we have A, B, C, D, E – and there is a ‘G’.

        “So a new type of virus that could cause it. So far, nothing’s come up on that”.

        And he says the third possibility could be “a new manifestation, a new presentation, of an old virus..”

        Oh phk right off McWonkey

        1. SOQ

          Yes the zero covid genius who suggested that men may need a license to socialise.

    “On September 6 2013 the High Court in Dublin upheld an appeal commissioner’s decision in favour of Irish businessman, Denis O’Brien. The appeal commissioner had ruled that O’Brien was not liable to pay more than €57 million ($79 million) in capital gains tax..”

    …what goes around comes around.

    “But more central to Digicel’s strategy is a direct appeal to the Morrison government to intervene in the dispute. The company wants the Australian government to make representations to the PNG government.

    If that doesn’t work, the company wants the Australian government to pay the tax bill itself.”

      Another government spending taxpayers money to give to O’Redacted. ‘ Telstra announced plans to buy the telecommunications assets in the Pacific from Irish billionaire Dennis O’Brien last July with the help of more than $1.5 billion of Australian taxpayer money. It came amid fears that the assets could have been sold to a Chinese Telco such as China Mobile.’

    Burying Democracy Under the Guise of Health: MEP Anderson Reveals the True Motives Behind the WHO Treaty

    “If you give executive powers to a non elected body, then you no longer have democracy; you no longer have accountability of elected officials, and who will the citizens hold accountable for taking away their rights?”

    “You’re taking away the rule by the people, for the people. That’s what you take away with this. And people need to understand. If this treaty goes through, you can bury democracy altogether.”

    “You need to see the big picture, the goal of all of this. It’s abolition of democracy, taking away your freedom, and it’s no longer to having abide by the rule of law. That’s what they’re trying to do.”

      https://michaelpsenger.substack.com/p/the-prophetic-monkeypox-simulation

      “Monkeypox was first identified in 1958, but there’s never been a global Monkeypox outbreak outside of Africa until now—in the exact week of the exact month [May 15 2022] predicted by the biosecurity folks in their pandemic simulation.”

      Have to call a spade a spade here. It’s got to be an act of bioterrorism. I’d speculate that making it this blatant could be intended as a clear message to governments around the world to get in line.

      1. Nigel

        ‘It’s got to be an act of bioterrorism.’

        Compelling, other than the complete lack of evidence.

        1. K. Cavan

          Terrorists, Nigel, they tend to sneak around, cover their tracks, that sort of stuff. They’re not all in the Whitehouse like Obama, you know.

          1. Nigel

            Terrorists, notorious for keeping their acts of terror secret and never claiming credit.

      2. f_lawless

        Isn’t it obvious? In October 2019, Event 201 simulates a coronavirus outbreak from bats that causes a global pandemic. Just a month later, the same thing is claimed to have happened in a Wuhan animal market, causing a global pandemic Last year, another biosecurity event is held which simulates the occurrence of a Monkeypox outbreak in several countries, starting in mid May 2022. There’s never been a global outbreak of Monkeypox before and yet it apparently occurs in the very same week as that of the simulation. The most plausible explanation is not an incredible series of coincidences. The odds of that are astronomical

        1. Nigel

          It’s obvious that the people thinking about these things are more on the ball than you are, that’s all. That you atttriibute malice to this is entirely on you. If you want to prove they’re more than coincidences, you actually have to have actual proof, not just appeals to incredutiity.

          1. Mad

            Says the lad who appeals to “mankind” to halt climate change and thinks geopolitics is really just all about some morality calculus

          2. Mad

            There’s a touch of the cultist to you alright Nigel to be fair. A stunning cult wha as opposed to a culling stunt or even a cunning one

          3. f_lawless

            Judge Nigel doing his predictable “THERE’S NO ACTUAL EVIDENCE, case dismissed” shtick again. What are you expecting me to produce, signed confessions? I’m indulging in reasoned speculation based on a sequence of events and on circumstantial evidence.

            And again you’re going on the attack without even doing the slightest bit of reading on the subject.

            On one hand, you’re apparently claiming that the most likely explanation is that the outbreak is a naturally occurring event with “no malice” involved and the reason that the outbreak appeared in the simulation – down to the exact same week of the year – is because those running the event are so “on the ball” that they can predict natural outbreaks of a virus (which has never had a global outbreak before) with pinpoint accuracy several months in advance. Ridiculous.

            But then on the other hand, according to the official report on the simulation last year, “the exercise scenario revealed that the initial outbreak was caused by a terrorist attack using a pathogen engineered in a laboratory “. Are they suddenly not on the ball any more?
            https://www.nti.org/analysis/articles/strengthening-global-systems-to-prevent-and-respond-to-high-consequence-biological-threats/

          4. Nigel

            I’m expecting you to reach your conclusions based on something more solid than arbitrary declarations of probability, experience of how you usually reach your conclusions notwithstanding. Is there any evidence or indication that this was a bio-terrorsit attack? Nope. Not a shred. Is there any evidence that the people behind the simulation were also behind the bioterror attack for which there isn’t a shred of evidence? No. This is going to be the Ukrainian bioweapon labs all over again.

          5. Mad

            I’d say that whether it’s malicious or not is neither here nor there personally. It’s interesting however that this IS the only part of F-law’s post you take issue with ( I did myself as well, but she was courteous enough to respond).

        2. K. Cavan

          I don’t know, flawless, it could be just like the sportspeople collapsing, the huge upsurge in youth strokes & heart attacks, the spike in cardiac problems, miscarriages, respiratory distress, palsy & so on that’s happening in the countries that had fake vaccines forced on their populations, all coincidences.
          If you dare disagree, you’re a racist, sexist, misogynist, Qanon Trump supporter to Nigel, who doesn’t like Strawman arguments.

          1. Nigel

            Or it could be that pointing out that you depend entirely on strings of supposed coincidences and nothing else is almost redundant when you keep admitting that you’re depending entirely on strings of supposed coincidences and nothing else.

        Embarrassment?

        €218,000 in cash withdrawals, flights costing €51,800, €88,200 spent on hotels, €77,000 spent in restaurants, €41,000 expended on groceries, €30,000 spent on clothes, including designer labels, €2,110 on dental costs for Paul Kelly, and €14,500 on entertainment items.

    1. K. Cavan

      OMG, that’s undeniable proof if ever I saw it. Global Warming in Southern & Central Europe, not to mention my back garden was roasting the other day. But the Monkey Pox & Coronavirus stuff is all just Coincidences.
      Any word on those notorious Nazi-Russian mercenaries you were dreaming about the other day, Nigel?
