According to a Finnish thinktank, the price cap of $60 per barrel that Western countries imposed on Russian oil has "failed to live up to its potential". Earlier this year, Russian oil was trading at $80 per barrel.

It increasingly appears that the Covid Inquiry, set up by the Blob, staffed and run by the Blob, sees its job as blaming the politicians and excusing the Blob, says Matt Ridley in the Telegraph.

The BBC's latest bit of alarmist drivel is that the poor olive harvests in Spain are due to man-made ?climate change?. In fact, says Chris Morrison, Olive oil production in Spain has been at record highs in recent years.

It's true what they say, "A picture is worth a thousand words." One could see the distress, the emotions, and the unflinching support in the posted pictures. We, the Chief's older sisters in the States, are very concerned about his well being and it's reassuring for us to see the enormous amount of support he has. We know that this tribute will raise his spirits and make him proud. A very special thank you to all of you!!!

the pics and the report has sent me to tears - your honesty, integrity There is no price that you and the chief will accept and so all the crimalisation of our local people occurs. Your stand has justice and truth on yer side and this will come out in the end. Ireland is a very corrupt country but your refusal to be corrupted gives me hope for my children. Thank you for your stand-your are doing it for all ireland.

This affair shines an unflattering light on the courts in Ireland. The sentence was greatly disproportionate to the 'crime'. Why was this? Consecutive sentences are an aberration.

Stop for a moment to consider what has probably happened here.

The Chief is no criminal - it's those that put him there should be jailed! Please show your support by any means possible - cards & letters & reading material help allay the boredom of prison.

"To poison the rivers the seas or the skies,
And poison the minds of a nation with lies,
It's all in the interest of free enterprise,
Nonetheless it's perfectly legal."
