Sir Clive Thompson, former Shell marketing executive, is the director of the now-collapsed Farepak firm which has lost 150,000 low-income savers around €600 each. Thompson, chairman of Farepak's parent company European Home Retail, has a long track record of controversy - in 1998 he made a speech at the CBI annual dinner where he asserted that statutory union recognition should be put in a handbook to help firms improve their "pest control techniques". read full story / add a comment
Soziedad Alkoholica cleared by Spanish Judiciary. The logo "is similar" but that is "art".

The Basque political situation is not all about the "Peace Process". Many other things happen there too.

For years the group "Soziedad Alkoholica" used a logo on their albums of anarcho-punk garage angst music which was quite obviously a take on the logo used by ETA.

Their disks were withdrawn from sale by the largest department store chain & they were brought before the Judiciary to be investigated for "incitement to or glorification of terrorism". They've been cleared. They sing songs about victims too. read full story / add a comment

Isn't it strange that when in sniffing distance of getting back into power the local parties shy away from association with opposition to separate water charges. Is the thought of missing out on the double tax so hard to swallow. Maybe the truth is as suspected that all allong the likes of the DUP SF really agreed with the policy. read full story / add a comment

If a high dose of radiation element, Polonium 210, can be a tool of quick assassination, lower doses (as in typical cigarettes) are no less tools of homicide. Ask health officials, et al, why Po-210 is still permitted in cigarettes, with zero warning to anyone. Ask why smokers and Pub Proprietors bear the burdens of law, but the cig makers, ingredient suppliers, and complicit regulators go free.

Water is in the process of being privatised by stealth. Citizens must inform themselves regarding the ongoing process to hand our water over to a private multi-national company to make profit and learn from the experiences in other jurisdicitons where privatisation has brought hardship to communities and particulatly to the most vulnerable members. Voters should seek to have this placed on the issues list for the upcoming general election. read full story / add a comment

We need helpers for Buy Nothing Day in Galway. You don't even necessarily have to do much.
We need people to man (woman?) a stall, people to be at a film screening and barter fair and people to dress up for a street theatre. If nothing else, turn up for the day and BUY NOTHING on that day. read full story / add a comment

In recent years many people have realised fantastic health benefits from an approach to diet based on whole, organic food supplemented by high quality food supplements to make up for the cumulative loss of vital minerals, vitamins and other essential nutrition resulting from consumption of the denatured food which most of us are forced to buy throughout our lives. There is a huge groundswell of interest in this issue as people convert in droves to a truly healthy way of eating. A prominent UK exponent of this approach to diet who regularly arranges seminars in Ireland on this topic has spoken to capacity audiences of up to 300 people around Ireland who are turning away from pharmaceutical driven medicine to taking control of their own health by learning about how to nourish their own bodies properly - something the medical profession itself is still profoundly and shamefully disinterested in. read full story / add a comment

The country took one step closer to water privatisation recently with the announcement that Celtic Anglian Water have landed the contract for the Waste Water Treatment Plant, part of the Waterford Main Drainage Project. The Irish Examiner described them as ‘the international division of Anglian Water’. However, a quick scan of the company’s website tells a different story, Anglian water have only a 50% stake. ‘Celtic Anglian water’ (CAW), is listed on the NTR (national toll roads) website as a subsidiary company. Along with such shining lights of Irish capitalism as Greenstar, Airtricity, Bioverda, Irish Broadband and National Toll Roads themselves.

Today, The UK Independent newspaper reveals that "Britain's official food safety watchdog has privately told supermarkets that it will not stop them selling an illegal GM rice to the public". Documents seen by the newspaper show that the Food Standards Agency assured major manufacturers and retailers 10 days ago that it would not make them withdraw the rice - at the same time as it was telling the public it should not be allowed to go on sale.
