Posted in: Queen's London representative says royals back BLM movement See in context

"Unlikely, the Queen as a matter of rule never takes Sides."

The Queen pinned medals on the uniforms of Paratroopers who murdered innocent people on Bloody Sunday.

The Royal Family are the symbolic head of the British Armed Forces.

They are in so much trouble with Andrew and their wayward son, this smacks of desperation.

That all said, I have nothing against the British having their own Monarchs. Its none of my business, best of luck to them - unless they support the occupation of Northern Ireland, which they do.

Turkey has the capacity to stop making the refugee problem worse by pulling out of Syria and stopping their killing of Kurd's.

Yesterday Ireland pledged to send 2 million vaccines of its own, asides from from within the EU collective. That's good. No one is safe until we are all safe.

Kyogo Furuhashi is a great role model for Japan and Japanese soccer. It would be great to have more Japanese players of his class at Celtic.

Posted in: Rangers fans banned over Furuhashi abuse See in context

Until recent years Rangers banned Catholics from joining their club. Every time Irish players join Celtic they get death threats from Rangers fans. This kind of racism is what has come to be expected from Rangers fans. Kyogo Furuhashi is an exceptionally gifted player and a great role model for young people who carries himself with great dignity and is already a legend at Celtic.

Turkey should simply get out of Cyprus. Long over-due. They are as empire-belligerent as Britain. Their outrageous occupation of an EU country for so long is an embarrassing example of their influence on the German polity (Thus in turn EU policy).

Posted in: Oliver Stone revisits JFK assassination in new documentary See in context

Apart from JFK, another interesting movie on this subject (back in 1970's) was "Executive Action" staring Burt Lancaster. I think it is naive to believe LHO committed this atrocity at all. He was a convenient scapegoat. No US President has been perfect, but JFK (and especially Bobby) was trying to bring public attention to some powerful people who thought they were untouchable. Along with the assassinations of Bobby Kennedy and MLK, it proved they were, at that time, untouchable, after-all, they got away with it, didn't they?

Posted in: Celtic sign Japan forward Furuhashi See in context

Ha Ha, very nice Albaleo.

On my occasional visits to Glasgow I have found the people friendly and the accent no problem to understand. However, try order "Pork in London and they'l not have a clue what you want. That happened me once, then a nice local guy intervened, corrected my poor vocab' and explained to the waiter that what I was really trying to say was "poke". The nice waiter said, "Ah, poke, now I understand." If Furuhashi  is as successful as Nakamura we are in for a treat. Come'on the Bhoys.

Four great rugby nations. Three great matches ahead in Nov. Love to be at either one of them.

In fairness Ireland "Pummelled" New Zealand in Chicago. Just when NZ's elusive record was almost within touching distance. That must have hurt? Don't tell me they didn't want to win that match, desperately.

Ah well, not to worry. Get your revenge in Nov. Maybe. Then again, maybe not?

"Come on Ireland."

It is surely a privilege to attend during these times, so the least every attending Olympian should do is Vax, even if only as an act of respect to the people of the host country?

But Vreth probably said it best with,

"Chemical free... just steroids, HGH, protein powders, creatine and god knows what else for these elite chosen ones."

Brilliant summary Vreth.

Posted in: Leader of Northern Ireland's DUP steps down after just three weeks See in context

Mr Poots could see it is inevitable that the agreement on the Irish language had to be passed through legislatively, as it was agreed upon. It is reported that he pragmatically just said OK, get it out of the way, forget about pointless brinkmanship (again), as it doesn't threaten what is supposed to be Unionists priority, maintaining the union with Britain. But his MP colleagues wanted the usual brinkmanship or his head on a platter. His sacking, after three weeks is a hallmark of the unbelievable pettiness within Unionists that infuriates nationalists and non-aligned communities, and increasingly the British. An extended example is that they insist that the national language of Ireland (the Island of Ireland) should only be reduced to consideration as a minority language in the same was as e.g. Polish. I have many valued Polish friends and they also think that is crazy.

Re: "Tá áthas mór orm go bhfeicfidh mé, le mo mhac, mo thír aontaithe arís roimh a bhfaighidh mé bás."

Indeed Mickelicious, The more crazy such Unionist pettiness gets, the more likely all of our sons, if not ourselves, may yet see an inclusive, progressive, peaceful United Ireland.

Women's Cervical Cancer testing is free and encouraged in several countries (Rightly so), but I don't know of anywhere a similar priority is given to Prostrate Cancer screening.

I reckon men's health is not very high on priority list of governments, medics, pharma companies or the media.

Therefore full credit for J-Today for this article.

Re: GBR48,

That is sound practical advice.

New Zealand health service attacked today.

Who is next?

If these hackers are consistently coming from identifiable countries, and they never attack those countries, then action needs to be taken against those countries at UN level on this issue.

People who are ill to varying degrees, or in the dying phase of their lives will suffer much more because of these attacks which are 100% indefensible and the most cowardly form of harm being caused to completely innocent vulnerable citizens. Some people are so naive. Such hackers have zero political conscience. Try tell a person who has had their Cancer care suspended-indefinitely because of the attack on their Health service, about abstract political theorizing on hacking. Whatever one's individual political views, such attacks are despicable and the scum who are hacking health services are the lowest form of criminals. Morally they would make the average drug-dealer look like a saint.

Posted in: Suzuki to halt 3 India plants to divert oxygen for COVID-19 patients See in context

Ireland is actually sending 700 (seven hundred) Oxygen Concentrators to India.

Just to correct that posting I made above.

Oxygen Concentrators draw oxygen from the air and deliver it to the patient at over 90% concentration.

Ireland has a population of less than 5million. That is a very substantial donation from such a small country.
