    Sadly it seems politicians everywhere only like to be around heroes if there is a possible photo opportunity.

    He’s been on this issue for years to his credit. It really is shameful.

    The elephant in the room is the dust/ash. It went everywhere. And the death toll WILL end up X1O of the day. Helping the first responder's,... Ain 't a person on the planet who wouldn't say they deserve better. Its the foot in the door for claims it allows that would break the balance sheet.


    BUT THOSE GUYS WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND.. Thank you, YOU MOVED THE BAR ON IRELAND.

    I think they're probably running the clock down hoping they'll all die. And they couldn't even be bothered turning up for the meeting. But i bet they've all got little flag badges on their lapels. Cunts.

    I watched three times, and was still moved. All these years later, and still nothing.

    I am convinced that we need psychological testing of elected people. In fact of anyone in a position of power. We’re not currently putting enough weighting in this respect on individuals who clearly have personality disorders. They can cause a lot of harm especially if they have power. I also think our advancing knowledge in this area should be applied with regards to selection for office. Myers-Briggs is used quite a bit in executive selection. I work a lot with axis 2 anti-social PD’s (psychopaths) and they’re pretty easy to spot in a short period of time. I see a lot of people in politics with these traits. ‘Snakes in Suits’ by Bob Hare and Paul Babiak is a good primer.
