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?.

- The song 'Legal Illegal' performed by Frances Black.

"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."

- March to the Prison Doors.

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.

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 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.

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!!!
