Pfizer has partnered with Marvel to produce a comic urging people to get their autumn boosters. This kind of propaganda, sugar-coating state-approved messages, used to be the preserve of communist regimes. Not any more.

Denmark has ceased Covid vaccination for most under-50s, but the UK has not, meaning it is offering vaccines to 32m additional, low-risk people at a potential cost of £1bn. This is an utter waste of scarce public funds.

Sinn Féin's Dublin Spokesperson on Europe Cllr. Daithí Doolan questioned the Tánaiste & Progressive Democrats leader Michael McDowell’s vision for the future of Europe following the Minister’s key note address at the National Forum of Europe plenary session held today at Dublin’s Westin Hotel.

Speaking at the event Cllr. Doolan put it to Minister McDowell that his interpretation of a, “liberal European democracy is one that puts the wants of the economic elite above the needs of the ordinary citizen.

Cllr. Doolan said, “the Progressive Democrat vision for the future of Europe as presented by Minister McDowell today is one that enthusiastically endorses the open market, speaks of freedoms to compete & privatisation of essential services. For the PDs liberalising markets and lowering taxes is an expression of their democracy. We are told a strong Europe is one that focuses solely on economic competition, security, immigration; and treats social policy as an after thought. This does little to benefit the ordinary European citizen.”

Cllr. Doolan continued, "The Europe the PDs want is one where a Department of Health refuses to put more beds into public hospitals whilst at the same time pumps vast sums of taxpayers monies into the development of private hospitals. Where a Department of Justice care not about tackling violent crime or the massive inequalities in our state; but choose instead to put its resources into deporting tiny numbers of the world’s most vulnerable people back to oppressive and insecure regimes. Where the Minister of Finance continues to give tax breaks to the largest earners. It is a Europe that celebrates inequality.”

Cllr. Doolan concluded, “Sinn Féin supports a Europe of equals that delivers responsible social policy which is supported by economic prosperity. We work with our parliamentary partners in the European United Left/Nordic Greens, to achieve a true partnership of equal sovereign states co-operating in social and economic development in Europe and beyond.”

Nothing surprising in this guys.

Mcdowell is a compliant panderer to the corperate sector. He is entrenched in RW gibberish trying to pass off the discreditted Reaganomic myth about rising tides etc etc.

He is rampantly in the camp of kill or killed ideologue, survival of the fittest et al.
Callous and dicriminate, he cares little for the poor, disadvantaged or disaffected, viewing them as vermin/unaccomplished/necessary as cheap labour since the UN effectively outlawed slavery world wide.

Look around at all this supposed wealth. all that is happening is apartment blocks and factories are being built to accomodate the profit hungry gombeen puppetmasters of hollow dysfunctional bullies like Mcdowell

My hope is that Minister McDowell's vision of Europe may yet be decided by Europe's version of him, and in a way which takes account of the way he treats the citizens of the Republic of Ireland.

Senior politicians in Europe are being kept informed regarding the manner in which Minister for Justice McDowell is misusing and abusing the law for his own unlawful purposes.
