            Those links express Ferg’s deepest thoughts far better than he ever could. Better to refer to the source material than the blurry & messed-up photocopy of those thoughts that exists inside his head.
            The MSM thinks for Ferg, he’s just allowing them to speak for him, too.
            Not that his thought processes aren’t fiercely Independent.
            And Guardian, RTE, BBC, etc.

    So all of the inflation was caused by the Ukraine war? It had nothing to do with governments around the world turning on the printing presses over the past 5 years. It’s no wonder that NATO, EU, US, et cetera keep ploughing weapons into the Ukraine and keeping the war going as long as possible.
    They can use it as cover and an excuse for all of the pre-existing domestic problems.
    Thankfully the public by and large do not seen to be buying the monkeypox BS. There is more and more about it in the media every day. It’s like the public is being primed for bigger disaster stories, restrictions and lockdowns later on in the year.

            …I would rather lose an argument by using nazis than lose a war…maybe they will call it Zelenskys Law…everybody loses because of this proxy war…except the yanks, of course…

          1. Mad

            Are there ever winners in any war? I deplore that sort of terminology. But the point Bisted makes is ostensibly and manifestly correct.

          2. Nigel

            What, that Russian propaganda will become official history if Russia wins in Ukraine? That might be true in Russia and in Ukraine under a new brutal regime, but not in the rest of the world. As for declaring the war over, the war was declared over on its very first day. The Ukrainians disagreed then, I expect they disagree now.

            Also, you are correct to doubt the use of the term ‘win.’ Russian victory is looking more pyrrhic by the day. By rights Russia owes Ukraine billions in reperations, but what are the chances of them getting any?

          3. Mad

            The point bisted made (you idiot) was that as Russia established dominance in several parts of sic, Independent Ukraine , we have received less and less lectures from Zelensky in our national parliaments, on every billboard, Sky News, BBC, even when we go to take a piss etc

          4. bisted

            …I don’t hear any Russian propaganda…the channels have been blocked but I’ve no doubt it would be equal and opposite…thanks to WikiLeaks I know I’ve been lied to by the US in every conflict they’ve been involved in…why would I suddenly believe them now?

          5. Nigel

            We hear Russian propaganda all the time, from you, bisted.

            Mad – have we? Does that mean everything that happened before now suddenly vanishes from your goldfish memory? Or that you start believing Russia?

          6. Mad

            It means nothing of the sort
            And I’m sorry for being unnecessarily nasty to you there – you don’t deserve that either. But you’re wilfully misconstruing the points Bisted made. Always trying to twist the things around to your little narrow view of what you think people said. It’s tremendously irritating

            It’s looking increasingly likely that Ukraine will be no more- at least as we know it. Poland has granted all Ukrainians same rights as Polish in Poland and Ukraine has responded in kind.

            Except Ukraine went further and is going to allow Poles run in Ukrainian elections. Well what is left of the smaller landlocked Ukraine anyway.

            No matter what way you look at it, the Azov Nazis are screwed, because the poles hate them too.

          8. Nigel

            Why? Russia is still struggling to finish taking the so-called breakaway region, which is just a small sliver of eastern Ukraine. Even when they do take it, can they hold it?

          9. K. Cavan

            I’m surprised you aren’t trumpeting the story in The Star querying whether Putin is dead, Nigel. Your friends, the Nazi hordes of Azov, Ajdar, White Hammer & The Right Sector, may have succeeded where Napoleon’s Continental Army & Hitler’s Wehrmacht failed, by surrounding Moscow & cornered, he may have chosen suicide, rather than face defeat at the hands of the Hohols.
            Or perhaps the end of The Empire Of Lies is in sight? It’s attempt to enforce its degenerate & murderous plans in Europe hasn’t gone so well, despite soaking Ukraine in blood, just like Syria, Libya, Afghanistan & Iraq.
            Mass murder of civilians to boost the poll ratings of corrupt & incompetent US politicians may be a thing of the past, Paediatric Transgender Surgery & classrom child-grooming may turn out to be a pipedream & the fake climate science, divisive Woke bigotry & technocratic bio-fascism which form the cornerstones of your vision of a Globalist Reich may have met it’s ultimate match, Humanity.
            Your heroes in Davos sound more like the ranting psychopaths they actually are, this year. Hopefully, this is the last time they get to sit, hatching their evil schemes, undisturbed, in the country where the planet’s dirty money goes to be laundered.

          10. K. Cavan

            The AFU have reached the end of the road, there are almost more of their soldiers surrendering now, than are being denazified. Russia will indeed take the small sliver of territory, when they reach Transnistra & leave Ukraine a landlocked rump, waiting for the inevitable Polish invasion from the West & the end of its time as a fully-controlled subsidiary of MI6 & the CIA.
            Bye, bye, Uncle Sam, don’t come back. Missing you already…

            Things aren’t so simple though Niggle.
            I follow https://liveuamap.com/
            It’s a Ukranian website, not favorable to Russia, which means that any Russian gains they show are likely to be true.
            They show that while the attack around Kiiv didn’t work, a huge area of land to the north of Crimea was taken over by Russia.
            Crimea is connected to the continent by a small neck of land – I keep asking myslef how it is that Russia was able to take an area of ten thousand square miles or more in a question of days, while everyone was looking at the feint towards Kiiv.
            And overall, they now control about forty to fifty thousand sq miles of Ukraine – and area considerably larger than Ireland.
            Like yourself, I have no idea what Russia’s original aim was – but they have taken over a huge area of the country and seem to be expanding in some places.
            I have no idea how the war will end, but right now it seems to me as if Russia has met at least some of its war aims.

        Sovereignty, “an outdated & backward” idea for Ireland, yet worth going to war for, in Ukraine?
        Russia has a lot of people in it, Ronnie, very few of them want nukes, controlled by the only nation ever to use them, on their border.
        As for Ukraine being Sovereign, that’s simply childish nonsense. Violent coups & political machinations by foreign secret services tend to reduce a nations’ sovereignty rather substantially, as anyone who’s a member of the EU can tell you.

    Yesterday was the perfect day for those in the neutral corner watching two teams convinced of their rightful destiny being delivered a harsh lesson in championship sport.
    The goys of Leinster were already annointed 5-times winners by their sycophants in the Irish media.
    Nice to see Ronan O’Gara deliver the coup de grâce to what was effectively the Irish national team and what a great coach he is becoming.
    Liverpool – being Liverpool – naturally assumed that coming from the City of Entitlement the Cup was rightfully theirs.
    Seeing their whiney supporters getting gassed by the French was just the icing on the cake.
    The Scousers are the most loathed team in English football – not just for booing the national anthem but for having collective amnesia about Heysel while preaching to others about Hillsborough. It’s no coincidence Liverpool is the most Irish city in Blighty.
    Seeing a Scouser celebrating a goal in the final PL game of the season in a packed bar by running around making a tool of himself and then watching everyone else erupt in derision when it was disallowed was one of the highlights of our recent sunny sojourn.
    Well done Real Madrid and La Rochelle for providing a great final day of the season.

      All this media chitter-chatter is based on the false premise that our political leaders are not attempting to drive our entire economy, society & indeed civilization over a cliff, hoping it will land on The Great Reset, which is exactly what they are doing. Imagine believing Biden, Johnson, von der Leyen or Varadker actually care about the idiots who allow them into positions of power.
      Biden was, of course, elected by fraud, von der Layen, well, nobody really knows how she got the gig & Varadkar, the only sitting Taoiseach not to be elected on the first count still ends up as Taoiseach, some people never get the message.

        The whole article is built on a faulty premise – ie, the millennial cult that has been built up around ‘Climate Change’ is a secular, empirical scientific led logical certainty – when it most certainly is not. It’s a guilt based cult and the ‘science’ it’s based upon is isn’t worthy of the title.

        One thing that is certain, is that we are past the ‘point of no return’ when it comes to the academic rigueur of the past – it has served its purpose. The world it has built is now on the chopping block of international elite finance. The ‘science’ will say whatever is needed to achieve their aims, hence the unrelenting focus on idealizing students as opposed to teaching them.

        Thankfully, they’re enough academics with a penchant for the truth that can ascertain faulty ‘science’ – so I wouldn’t be surprised if there was another form of ‘Great Reset’ in the sciences in the next decade or so. As opposed to the continual process of the past – where science built on science, decades of data will have to be reviewed and probably discounted.

        The above paragraphs stand in stark contrast, but I’ve thankfully become recently aware that there has been people keeping tabs within most levels and societies that are facilitating the current paradigm. The ‘conch’ at the moment is Fiat currency, but the hubris of the holders will likely be their downfall.

        In reference to David’s recent article about peoples exodus from the perilous possible future I’d argue that standing your ground is paramount. Don’t do anything that will knowingly help them to achieve their aims. There’s no need, they’ve already overplayed their hand.

    Forty years ago this weekend Blighty was engaged in the bitter struggle to regain the Falkland Islands after an illegal invasion by forces of the Argentinian junta led by General Galtieri.
    Yesterday marked the anniversary of the Battle of Goose Green.
    During the bloody struggle, 2 PARA were outnumbered and outgunned but prevailed against the odds with immeasurable bravery, writing themselves into the annals of airborne history.
    Today, thanks to their efforts and Margaret Thatcher’s tenacity and bloody-mindedness, the Falklanders are free, prosperous, thriving and 100% in favour of remaining part of Great Britain.

It’s a rather glum joke, but we do have this joke in the family, that I only emerge when my husband gets poisoned or thrown in jail.””

    Was at cork cash and carry and passed the expanse of cork airport
    Not one aircraft except a private single prop on what appeared the run way
    Looked at the arrivals for tomorrow
    25 flights for the whole day starting at one minute after midnight
    So meantime Dublin is hogging all the flights and starving the rural airports
    It’s time to limit Dublin airport to half the number and re route the rest to other airports
    Tomorrow 310 flights arrive to Dublin airport
    To make people wait 3.5 hours is criminal and it’s time the minister of transport did his fecking job
    They cannot cope and forget the army
    It’s not their job
    Maybe health and safety needs to close the two terminals down before they turn ireland into a destination like North Korea
