I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Far-Left for providing one of the most entertaining political campaigns of the last few years. How I've laughed as I've watched a group of Socialist/SWP people badly run, badly represent and badly debate a ridiculous "struggle" that nobody wants. Everyone knows they're simply doing it to try and gain seats in next years local elections - but they may have achieved the complete opposite. Their campaign is about to implode (probably with the usual Left-Wing in-fighting and bickering), and the only thing they've gained is the comtempt of the vast majority of Dublin householders. Expect repercussions in the next Local and General elections. No wonder the Labour Party have kept relatively quiet on the issue over the last few weeks. read full story / add a comment

What's really going on in the city is not
what you'll read in the papers. A good sized march of over 500 people took place
last night. People assembled in Cabra outside
the Bingo hall and marched down the New Cabra
Road towards Mountjoy prison where there is still ten brave anti-bin tax protesters incarcerated there.

The march was a noisy affair and was massively supported by the passing motorists, truck drivers
and bus drivers as they passed us by in the other lane. At the Prison there were a number of brief speeches from members of the Cabra Committee
against the bin tax. There were cheers of support and solidarity from the crowd to the
prisoners inside.

There is a major meeting planned for St. Finbarrs
GAA club in Cabra on Tuesday night and all are
encouraged to attend in the area. read full story / add a comment
