No real news on this front, with the health minster Simon Harris surviving a vote of No Confidence thanks to Michael Martin and his merry men in Fianna Fail. Strange that Fianna fail said they didn’t have any confidence in Owen Harris yet because of Brexit they say he must remain untouched. It also looks like we will not be getting any money back as they have ruled out retendering the project so they doesn’t like there will be any way of scraping back “cost over-runs” that newspeak for “kiss the money goodbye suckers “.
Though so form of cover up will be attempted some accountancy firm will be given the task of drawing up a report which will be illegible and no-one will be able to understand it. It will be all quiet then and so much for their explanations. Some one will be laughing all the way to the bank on this one that’s for sure.
Well here is a review of a product which I don’t normally do. There is always a first time I suppose. This “device” is supposed to clean your ears better than a cotton bud with its “Auger” shaped tip but unless you got ears that could grow vegetables you are better to give it a miss. I actually bought the product and it arrived today nearly eight weeks after I purchased it online. What arrived was worth €0.50 I say very basic packaging, that’s my fifty cents worth anyway. It didn’t get out any ear wax after much trying and felt like they had seen you coming with this one. All spin basically.
Just having a look at the Irish times website and one story caught my eye – a sixty five year old man from Meath was found on the job with a prostitute in a brothel in west Dublin. Gardaí arrested the man in question and was subsequently fined €200 at a court in Dublin. The prostitute remained nameless under legislation passed in 2017 the so called “Nordic model”.
This legislation criminalise the “buying” of sex from prostitutes while the prostitute gets off scot free. So what is it ? I thought sex was a act between consenting adults with both parties being responsible. Seemingly now it is just the man who is to blame. The legislation seems to be enacted to please man hating feminists who seek to control others and want to reduce men to less than equal human beings while making them pay for it all.
They is a great deal of hypocrisy about Sex in this country, quite a lot of it from feminists, maybe they would do something constructive and shut up.
Monday 10th December was the anniversary of the UN Declaration of Human Rights which was declared in December 1948. They are good principles to live by but its a shame that nearly all governments just pay lip service to them. Don’t think the world as such has progressed a lot since 1948. Here’s two short videos to explain them to you. See whether you believe your country measures up.
Aah yes the World cup has drawn to a close and France has come out the victor after beating the opposition Croatia 4-0 in Moscow. You could say the turning point(for France) in the match was the penalty they got for the hand ball incident it was a bit harsh and really didn’t look like it was deliberate, however France managed to get two more goals to put the result beyond doubt. It wasn’t the most exciting of matches but credit most be given to Croatia for getting all the way to World cup final. The tournament as a whole was good and was a big promotion for Russian tourism which has opened up a good way. Its a pity that Ireland (republic 26) didn’t manage to get to Russia, I say that the population as a whole would have had a pretty time. Maybe next time .
Just taking note of Tuesday nights match between Ireland and Denmark (Ireland lost 5-1). Only saw the second half of the match but it was a very disappointing performance from the Republic’s soccer team, they seemed rudderless without a sense of direction and gave away easy goals to Denmark. They held in Copenhagen but why did they go to bits in Dublin ? It was a shocking performance to put on for a home crowd, who were expecting to be booking places for Russia next summer some hope of that now. It looked like the soccer squad hadn’t did their homework and it showed. They had a easy group to qualify from and made a mess of it and left it all to the very end to do. Don’t think one should expect a lot from this soccer squad in the future.
Decided to write a few lines on the old blog here. Its been a few weeks since the last blog post, nothing much to write about except that i was on holidays for a week there at the start of august, Costa del sol very nice but was a bit too hot for me. i stayed in the hotel most of the time then the Irish bars all playing English football on there big tv’s. It had been sixteen years since I last took a holiday so it was bit different for me.
Don’t think i will take as long as that again to have my next holiday.
Nothing much happening just those hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico or the Caribbean, wouldn’t do to get in the way there. I guess it disapproves the climate change deniers the fact that the vast numbers that make up humanity are having a profound influence on the climate of the earth. Will be back writing on the blog soon, take care in the meantime.
