            I enjoy your links and comments but when you’re replying to yourself it maybe time to let the wheel spin and the hamster rest Fearganainm

            Salut, Ronnie,

            Sometimes putting multiple, related links, results in a post being put into moderation or, occasionally, disappearing altogether. It’s easier to just tack on related links than it is to become blocked from posting.

            Similarly, when breaking stories appear and as a story develops, additional information can be added to a sparse opening report. What you consider to be ‘replies to myself’ are in fact ‘updates’.

            There, I hope that I’ve help to deepen and expand your understanding of how some people choose to operate on sites such as this.

          3. Ronnie

            Alright then that’s great dedication you have to your cause and thanks for clearing that up.

            Ferg, as a baby, obviously developed a habit of slipping his hand under the elasticated legs of his Pampers* to proudly display a handful of his faeces, before enthusiastically eating it. Later he took to clearing the streets of the mess left by the canine companions of forgetful dog-owners, who’d left the house without poo-bags, before graduating to feasting on the rancid crap issuing from that anal spinchter of the establishment which we call the MSM.
            Poo consumption is usually nothing to shout about, not least because of what it does to your breath but perhaps, in Ronnie, Ferg has found a fellow Corprophagia enthusiast? What are the odds on that, eh? Ferg finally has a special someone to click on his stinky links & they can indulge their shared merde perversion, it’s romantic, don’t you think?

      Watched part of it
      It was like a reality talent show like Albania has talent
      The dancers all distracting for the poor standard of karioki singing
      Wondered who the geezer with the attitude using Victoria’s statue as a prop

      Remember folks, Paddy with his nose pressed up against the mainland’s window saying ” down with this sort of thing ” is NEVER, EVER not funny.
      Imagine being triggered by a 96-year-old woman ?

        Actually tin man
        The queen deserved more than what was like watching X factor and a very bad one so called dances distracting from the dire performances
        I doubt there ever will be another 70year Jubilee
        I would say paddy had no nose up against the mainland British isles watching that cra*

      Even before that, do you remember being bombarded with a/s/l (age/sex/location) on Ireland on-line internet relay chat ?… strange times.

      It’s odd, stephen, you strike me as the type who, had you been born in another place, would’ve acquired your sash & bowler hat at an extremely early age. Perhaps this sniping at the Orange Order is deflection or sublimated desire & disappointment that you have to settle for a blue shirt? As a conservative, even reactionary kinda guy who likes to be in with the herd, it’s not difficult to picture you as the bright orange tyro of your loyal local lodge.

    1. Kin

      Well I’m all honesty the debt will be paid by generations for their mismanagement and only to be replaced by worse Sinn Fein and the lefties
      The money trees will I assume not be sanctioned by our masters the reich
      I honestly think the EU has plans for this country
      A holding centre for all EU migrants
      Surrounded by water and difficult to get off
      Get ready for the crash

      The Blueshirt’s performance last time out was an embarrassment, Varadker became the first sitting Taoiseach in Irish history not to be elected on the first count, I think he had to wait til the fifth, before he gathered enough leftovers to scrape across the line, so it’s hard to believe only 4 of every 5 of their seats are under threat.
      As Kin indicates, below, however, there are EU plans for how to finally get some use out of Bogland, so the Oligarchs will discard FF, replacing them with SF, who will become the Fake Left Globalist party, while FG will be bankrolled into a position as the Fake Centrist Globalist party.
      All will be well, once any hint of nationalism or popularisim are avoided, that might lead to politicians actually working to benefit their own electorate, perish the thought but Varadker will have to go, nonetheless, he wobbled several times during the Fake Pandemic, probably his medical knowledge made pumping out the ludicrous Fake Science a bit too onerous for whatever he has in place of a conscience. “McEntaoiseach!” will become the cry of our wretched meeja, “having our First Wahmex PM will make it all better”. Given McEntee’s general femme fasciste demeanour, half the electorate will be banned from voting by the election after that, either for posting something critical of Globohomo online or because the Facial Recognition Tech at the polling station entrance says “No”.

      Sad for the Scot’s and more EU propaganda to break up the union
      Scotlands and the unions ties are too strong and they are land locked unless Northern Ireland is annexed by the EU
      And boy if that happens it’s back to the troubles especially if Sinn Fein comes to power in this country
      Talk about afghanastan
      We have Sinn Féins taliban

      1. Annie 14 Tennis

        Scotland, and Wales for that matter, aren’t landlocked. Neither is Northern Ireland. Neither is England.

    Orange Order vows to expel men who put ‘abhorrent’ Michaela video online:

    https://www.independent.ie/irish-news/news/orange-order-vows-to-expel-men-who-put-abhorrent-michaela-video-online-41721372.html

    “…Officials within the Orange Order are spending the jubilee weekend trying to identify all of the individuals featured in the video, which emerged on social media on Thursday…”

    They’d want to be looking at female involvement in the production of the video, too.

          1. K. Cavan

            FFS, this is becoming ludicrous, must we all endure this smelly turd’s obsession with the MSM’s soiled undergarments? He’s stinking up this site with hack poo. Can he not just consume that crap in the privacy of your own kennel?

          2. Tom J

            @ K. Cavan,
            are you trying to impinge on other people’s free speech, only what you say goes. Gfys.

          3. Tom J

            @ Me So Harney,
            Why don’t you teach us all about free speech then, seeing as you are the only person that knows anything about it. Posting on Broadsheet is not free speech as Bodger and Admin will censor your posts so you can’t say what you want.

  2. Kin

    The political norm carries on
    Both sides as far away is before 1995 dragged by the scruff of the neck to sit down and try and administer Northern Ireland
    After decades we see the real problem two sides that dispose each other more than trying to make a country run
    The cancer in Ireland is the Northern Ireland politicians
    As long as it continues the cancer keeps spreading
    It’s time people stopped voting in the same old same old for it just goes round in circles
    Maybe if only the whole Provence could be towed into the middle of the atlantic

          1. Kin

            exactly the republics counties may be in ulster but Donegal is not part of the UK or what’s referred to as Northern Ireland which the EU is trying to annex
            And that is the elephant in the room

          2. Tom J

            You said if the whole Provence could be towed out to to the middle of the Atlantic, the whole Provence contains Donegal and Monaghan.

    1. K. Cavan

      Both sides in the North will find common cause in the coming decades, Kin, I can assure you, when they both find themselves outnumbered. I think the rubber boats will start to arrive, figuratively speaking, no matter how far you tow them.

      1. Kin

        I doubt it Kcavan until they turn their backs on Sinn Fein and the unionists turn their backs on the DUP and it’s like
        Maybe the alliance party is the start
        The hatred between the old guard both Republican and unionist would make what’s going on in Ukraine normal if thy had their way
        Just look at stormont and it’s closures
        And just look the election in the north last month and still no first minister elected
        It says it all the total simmering hatred they cannot even elect a governing body
        It’s like Dublin airport on steroids

      2. anti bot

        how can both sides find themselves outnumbered. utter tool. you English know your stuff

    Interesting piece from the every-challenging Gript on the dramatically changing demographic make-up of Ireland.
    ” Almost 77% of new PPS numbers this year to the end of May were issued to people of “other than Irish nationality.”
    And most of them were not from Ukraine.
    And the proportion of people claiming asylum from countries which do not have any internationally recognised crises to justify large amounts of people seeking international protection, is proportionately very high.
    It is also apparent that many of these people come to Ireland specifically for the purpose of being allocated social welfare, education and housing and are likely to remain state dependents.
    In total the number of new issues for 2022 is set to surpass 300,000 or the equivalent of the total population of the cities of Cork and Waterford. ”
    Remember this when you next read of pressures on under-funded schools, hospitals and GPs surgeries.

      1. SOQ

        What a challenge- trying to get CHEAP labour to service the economy.

        The story of the Polish in Ireland is interesting- when they arrived, they were described as “hard working”- meaning would live 8 to a 30 year old caravan in the middle of winter or, a house with a single fire which was condemned.

        But as they figured that they were entitled to minimum wage and that they could live elsewhere for less than the deductions taken from their wages- they were no longer considered “hard working”.

    1. Fearganainm

      You’re on some journey, approvingly citing a a former member of the IRA’s Dublin Brigade.

      1. Topsy

        Get with it, there is no IRA, only SF who will be in government after the next election.

        1. Fearganainm

          I’m with it, I’m just curious about how the racist is going to explain his admiration for a former IRA man. Treacy isn’t a fan of Sinn Féin, he fell out with them over the old average industrial wage policy.

          1. Duncan Wheeler

            I partially agree with tpt, why 2 million Ukranians had to leave instead of being relocated in their own vast country, like the other 43 million who have stayed, makes no sense. I would much prefer to see Somalians and Yemenis over here being housed and cared for by the states largesse and paid for by the US who created the horror shows there in the first instance. Silly me, Ukraine is a proxy war started years ago by the US, as bloody usual. Imagine what 30 billion would have done for the country, but no, instead give masses of heavy weapons to the Nazi incumbant. That’ll end well.The constant sabotaging of our & the worlds economy from withoin and without is both alarming and strange. A small local example I live in Stillorgan where we had 3 large resevoirs, the largest had been filled in for houses. To hell with future water secutiry & requirements, wtf? It’s almost like an agenda Glenda.

          2. The Nigel Account

            Perhaps you’d have to have your country invaded by a vastly superior military force expected to topple your government in a matter of days to understand the impulse to pack up your family and run like hell as far from the rockets and bombs as you can get. The US did not start any war in Ukraine, but Russia has been vindictively hacking away at it for well over a decade.

          3. The Nigel Account

            Putin started the seperatist confiict all on his own. Putin annexed Crimea all on his own. The Maidan required thousands of people acting together.

          4. Me So Harney

            No he didn’t.

            Kiev did by shelling the donbass for 8 years resulting in 30000 Russian speaking Ukrainians needlessly murdered. Zelensky has murdered more, and continues to murder, Ukrainians than Putin has or will.

          5. Me So Harney

            Wrong as always Nigel.

            The coup and shelling happened long before Putin came to the aid of Russia’s beleaguered minorities.

          6. Me So Harney

            Nigel spewing nonsense, Ukraine pivoted to Russia in 2014, Nuland and Co staged a coup, the shelling began straight away, 8 years and 30000 Russian speaking Ukrainians murdered.

            Putin rolled in to save Russia’s beleaguered minorities from non stop Kiev shelling.

            Fact, Zelensky has murdered more Ukrainians than Putin ever will.

          7. Nigel

            The most ridiculous part of this is the idea that Putin cares about beleaguered minorities.

          Topsy
          There are the shadowy figures never seen in public
          They are there
          They have never gone away
          Just because the official IRA were never seen during the troubles and it was the provisional IRA and the political wing of the IRA none other than Sinn Fein
          All the echelons of Sinn Fein came through the ranks of the IRA or provisional IRA
          Dessie Ellis for one example jailed for terrorist offences
          And yes topsy they will be in power down here in charge of our defence forces

      2. K. Cavan

        Forget the IRA, it’ll be all ISIS from now on. We’re well in the way now, having gotten our first two eye-gouging beheadings of gay men under our belt.

    2. Big Lad

      Remember back in the 70s/80s/90s when people used to say “I’m not a racist but…” just before they said something racist? They were much easier to spot back then.

      Apologies on behalf of my half wit, he has been at the toilet duck again.
      I warned him about the gript.ie carry on but sure I knew what he was when I licked him off a rock.
      As a dear friend said to me the other day, while I travailed my woes about early impotence and latent racism, ‘if you marry a fisherman, don’t be surprised when he goes a fishing’
      Tis’ the choices we make.

    4. K. Cavan

      There is a simple answer, Terry:
      “You’ll just have to get used to it”.
      Without large numbers of immigrants from incompatible cultures, we’ll never experience the type of racial strife that the Empire of Lies has been basking in for so long.
      No homogeneous population can ever have a genocide, either, we cannot be left behind. When the economic impossibility of being an immigration nation & a Welfare State crashes the economy, permanently, the S can really H the F.

      McGuirks Youth Defence blog indulging in some xenophobic dogwhistling? How not surprising.

      1. Chris

        “McGuirks Youth Defence blog indulging in some xenophobic dogwhistling? How not surprising.” Ah shtop, stock learned phrases that negate the need for thinking.

        Since antiquity – rulers have moved populations about in order to break the thing they fear most – kinship that might result in an uprising. It’s far better to have disparate groupings that they can set against each other.

        That our current rulers are more opaque & prefer the actuality of power rather that the presentation of such, doesn’t negate this fact. Ethno-nationaslism is a dead end & I’ll have no truck with it, all people are under the same onslaught from finance. When I say finance, I don’t mean Soros or the Jews etc, the third Reich tried to eliminate them because they could articulate the tyranny of the proposed system.

        I wouldn’t expect the 4th Reich to behave any different. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VAxwimExn0 listen closely. ‘When they said repent, I wonder what they meant’

        1. Ten Pin's Fictitious Mrs.

          Ah Chris, another Engloid concerned about the levels of immigration into Ireland. I thought himself was a pain in the hoop but the real Brits on here be as bad if not worse.
          Hungary is where I would send the lot of ye, blend right in.
          Top tip: if you are romantically interested in anyone who reads or quotes gript.ie, run the hell away. Too late for meself.
          Alas

        2. Daisy Chainsaw

          “stock learned phrases that negate the need for thinking.” That’s the tagline for grift. The last thing youth defence want is for anyone to think.

            And old Daisy Chainsaw has succumbed. Stock phrase librarian, that’s our Daisy.

      Matt Treacy has claimed that he was a recruiting officer for the Dublin Brigade of the IRA and there was a time when you’d likely have called him a sinister, malevolent character, luring weak-minded fools. And now he’s got you trotting after him, hanging on his words. Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose, hein?

        When was the last killing by the IRA? When were the last Muslim extremist beheadings?

          “When was the last killing by the IRA?”

          You wouldn’t know.

          Do you think that the decapitations of Philip Finnegan, Keane Mulready-Woods and Lynn Coburn , for example, were ‘Christian beheadings’?

          You’re not doing very well living in the present, are you?

          1. Fearganainm

            You only think that, You so clueless. The reality is that I don’t.

            Hasn’t Lieutenant General Roger Cloutier taught you anything?

          2. Me So Harney

            What has he taught me?

            And remember same rules apply as last time.. No stock NATO reels and the latest Landcom issue containing him shows the presence of snow and all the individuals wearing winter clothing so that’s not recent neither.

      Wow tin man
      Thought you were watching the jubilee
      Apparently the presenters of jubilee at the palace were having orgasms because the queen appeared with Charlie Carmella the boys and she tapped her teapot
      Apparently Brian may had hinted that last night as he did his xfactor number on the roof of the palace with a dancing troupe in spandex that there would be a big surprise
      Apparently you could not make it up the highlight of a £ multi million jubilee was the queen tapping her teacup or was it the teapot
      Meanwhile even the homeless were let in on the party in tents getting charity sambos
      She actually deserved. Much better
      The present news coverage on sky seems to miss Kate Middleton and focus on Carmella who frankly should never be queen as Charlie cannot
      Many people will still remember Dianna who died and hopefully they still do which is the reason Charles can never be king
      The successes should be William who is untainted by scandal and the death of his former wife

      Rather partygate than savilegate

    1. Kin

      Wow feargie well it’s tough then
      Maybe a good start might be two sides of the divide sitting in the same room in stormont and sharing power and serving the northern Irish people
      Maybe if Sinn fein took their seats in Westminster they might just prove that they are free from the past and fit for power
      They truly like the unionist nemeses truly people living in the past with their backs to the future

    BREAKING NEWS:

    The Mini-marathon is over. As a marathon runner of the 42,195 metres kind, it pees me off they use the word “marathon”. On the other hand, it’s not a terribly serious race for most and has raised loads of money for Ukraine over the years.

    However, the real scandal is that Roz Purcell, who is an ambassador for the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon, said her pre-event breakfast was porridge with some nut butter.

      How many other former IRA members do you openly admire?

      Did you check to establish whether they’d been involved in any really heavy stuff or doesn’t it matter if you can shoehorn their thoughts into some sniping at immigrants?

      Aren’t you concerned that they might view YOU as a particularly noxious type of immigrant?

      It’s a much coveted award that the Crown and Anchor rarely give up.
      AND they have a chuffing ringer – one of their team has been a researcher on a Diarmuid Gavin programme !
      Great result.
      Get in.

      Beret Boy™ – you’ve been on here so long today I vouchsafe you’ll need a toffee hammer to remove your underwear tonight.
      Just sayin’.

        You’re the Beret Boy now, you little IRA groupie.

        Do you feel better now that you’ve come out?

        Terry old boy…
        Do you want to play a game?
        It has nothing to do with anything.

        I challenge you to guess my previous identity.
        You think you’re good at this. IU bet you’re not.
        You have 3 guesses. If you get it correct I will send you a prize.

        I’m drunk so you might win.

        1. Big Lad

          – do you need a clue?

          Stop stalling… You love attention like this.
          Prove your abilities of deduction or get back on your bike Corky.

          1. Big Lad

            C’mon, take a guess, you clown.
            It’s not like you have any integrity left to preserve…
            Go for it.

            Win my esteem.
            I’ll send you a photo of it, but it will look like my cock.

          2. Big Lad

            I presume you have broadband.

            I propose that your neighbour changes their Wi-Fi password.
            Don’t ask me wgy…

    “The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the most manipulated infectious disease events in history, characterized by official lies in an unending stream lead by government bureaucracies, medical associations, medical boards, the media, and international agencies. We have witnessed a long list of unprecedented intrusions into medical practice, including attacks on medical experts, destruction of medical careers among doctors refusing to participate in killing their patients and a massive regimentation of health care, led by non-qualified individuals with enormous wealth, power and influence.”

    It seems the tide is turning fast – how society deals with the coming revelations is going to be an unprecedented event. Thanks Broadsheet for being one of the very few outlets with a conscience & allowing disparate voices a hearing.

    Best of luck to everyone, whether I agreed with you or not.
