At least one medical practice in West London has reintroduced social distancing to reduce the risk of patients contracting Monkeypox. This, in spite of the fact that there are only nine cases so far in the U.K.

Simon Kuper's book about how a small group of 'Tory Toffs' who were at Oxford in the 1980s masterminded the Brexit project to reclaim their aristocratic birthright is highly entertaining, but not convincing.

You might think that if you debunk patently silly extreme weather claims, the entire fear agenda will go away. Think again. Climate change is now firmly embedded in the culture wars surrounding race, identity and gender.

Why didn't the US back Zelensky? The New York Times wrote earlier this year that his government could be overthrown by far-right groups if he ?agrees to a peace deal that in their minds gives too much to Moscow?.

Shell campaigners hold protests in Erris and Dublin

12/10/2007 - 10:39:04 AM

Campaigners against the Shell refinery being built in Co Mayo are holding protests today in Erris and Dublin.

Local activists from Co Mayo have asked people from across the country to travel to Erris to highlight their ongoing opposition to the scheme.

Dublin supporters, meanwhile, plan to target the offices of the Department of Natural Resources.

Regular protests against the Shell pipeline and refinery have been taking place for more than a year, with critics saying the facility poses an unacceptable safety threat.

They are also angry that the Government signed over a vast amount of Ireland's natural gas resources to Shell without claiming any royalties for the State.

It appears that the Gardaí have taken on a new approach to policing when they can't have their own way, pulling hair and throwing people's runners into the river.

they were kind enough to send him to Dublin to Pearse St. so that we don't have to go all the way to Bellanaboy to visit.

oops that last caption gives that Garda way more credit than is due. He's not so much in charge as he may think. He's an unwelcome presence in Erris and yet another one of $h€ll's useful idiots. Soft words and heavy numbers will go down no better than the last man's foulmouthed and violent histrionics. He is still going to use all means at his disposal to force the will of a multinational upon a resisting community. He is still going to be an accessory in the Great Gas Robbery. People have already seen through his approach, he fools nobody up there.

$h€ll can have their corrupt garbage back.
