Taffy, you're a genius!
At home they're all bracing themselves for the starting pistol to fire. After that, it'll be anyone's guess as to what will happen.

These people have some interesting predictions to make:

Seems Leo’s got the placards up already and is on his way to see Higgins. My one prediction is solidarity and PBp will lose seats, I think Gino Kenny is in trouble due to seat changes. Shame because he’s been good.

A homeless man died beside the royal canal last night which was somewhat inconsiderate. A while back I was talking to a "lefty" politician about homelessness, particularly people sleeping out in the open and under bridges and so on and how it was unheard of up to 10 years ago and he said "I don't think that's a problem to be honest." He had lots to say about Israel, was very pleased that Trump beat Clinton and supported Assad but after a bit admitted he did not know why.

Fake news. She was only 61 as Coveney pointed out yesterday.
Really? She should go out and get a job then. Freeloading until the pension comes in! If she can't afford to live in Dublin she should move to somewhere more affordable.

Said Eoghan Murphy.

There used to be a scheme to tackle rural depopulation which involved getting people on the dole long-term to move down the country. Does that still go on?

Damn. I've always wanted to nail that show-off.
From my files. July 2018.

RBB: It was very annoying to hear Deputy Micheál Martin saying, obviously with a sideswipe at the left, that people were not jumping up and down about the Russians in Syria. Some of us were. I did not notice Deputy Martin on the marches to the Russian embassy. We were there.
Mick Wallace: We were not.
Clare Daly: We were not.
RBB: Deputies Wallace and Daly were not. That was their choice. We disagree.
Mick Wallace: And we will not be.

Yep. This is the man who was mistakenly reported as being killed.

I see Howlin Brendan is giving it the big one that labour will be able to "Solve the problems that beset ordinary people right now" he must think people are stupid, but clearly he is, no one will forget Joan Burton nor Alan Kelly Nor Dominic Hannigan, nor Howlin's own role in austerity.

Look at the fucking state of this wanker:


Hipsters ruin everything. SF need to be a bit stronger in their condemnation of this shitehawk, mind.

How bad is Sinne Fein's sell out?
Sinn Fein is still to the left of Corbyn-Labour, right?
LOL. SF to the left of Corbyn. Oh dear. :D They're to the left of FF/FG/Labour, and that's the best we can hope for at home.

This is one shithead, and no I don't believe he's representative of Shinnerdom as a whole. They need to pull their finger out and apply a bit of "party discipline" tout suite, mind.

E2A: Ah, I thought you were talking about Racist Ginger Hipster. This tweet is intended as a joke. That being the case, "sell out" refers to SF's evolution away from the most hardline republicanism, rather than their alleged betrayal of anything socialistic.

As Idris2002 said.

The shinners straddle the border, in that when the Assembly was functioning in the northern state they were hand in hand with the dup implementing austerity, as the reality of government. In the south they've presented themselves as been anti austerity and it's played well for them, certainly taking a good percentage of the Dublin WC vote on the back of water charges protests. However, Mary Lou talks in awed tones about been the party of government north and south, to that end they are certainly hoping for some sort of agreement with FF. In truth probably a bunch of Keir Starmers, which is left of Howlin Brendan by a fag paper.

Holy fuck Eoghen Murphy had a poster over the canal where the poor man lost his leg. Also Varadkar blaming everyone else for the incident, what a lazy useless tossed shite.

An elderly man died after he fell off a trolley in a and e last week. He was found on the floor and his neck had broken from the fall.
Last week 90 patients were on trolleys in corridors in one of the bigger hospitals. Overcrowding and inhumanr conditions. Patients can be on trolleys for days. And they dont qualify for hospital meals so they dont get breakfasts or dinners etc. They get handed a bun or a sandwich.

The situation is appalling. Staff are completely exhausted. Desperately trying to help and do their jobs in awful conditions. No wonder nurses trained here by the state leave and work in other coutries. Same with doctors.

The whole mess is appalling. And it's been wrong for over 25 years. FF fucked us over and closed 1000s of hospital beds in the boom times. FG failed miserably to open those beds again.

Fucked up.
Useless politicians the lot of them. Not one of the parties is worth their salt. All out for themselves.

A complete overhaul is needed...everywhere.
