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.

offsite link Are All Britain?s Current Woes Traceable to a Group of Entitled ?Tory Toffs? at Oxford in the 1980s? Tue May 17, 2022 13:00 | Toby Young
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.

Dear Editor,

Change we would all agree is essential if the world is not destined to endure further destruction and devastation and even a third world war .

A ceasefire in Ukraine and the declared neutrality of Ukraine long sought after by Russia would be beneficial to all concerned.

Would this not be preferable to an escalation of armed conflict which is all too often the preferred option in a world conditioned and habituated to the belief that the world is divided up into goodies and baddies. “We” being preternaturally the “goodies”.

All State Land And Property To Be Sold To a Private Entity Called The Land Development Agency. Yes you heard this correctly.

The government is transferring all state land and property to a private entity called the Land Development Agency. We cannot allow this to happen. The Post Offices are semi-state owned but they are actually being starved of cash.

Richard Boyd Barret TD: In the Dail

Just wow is all I can say… of course the minister has already left the building. The boys are back in town. Fianna Fáil and the developers. This is a hyper-speed version of “The Mistakes of the Past”. This legislation is a heist, is a legal method to pillage the land bank, the entire public land bank. It’s absolutely extraordinary. It’s not just local authorities, it’s every single public sector and their land. Not just housing land, “any relevant land” you can look at the definition in the legislation. They can take any bit of land from any public body and they can do what they like with it.

The only reasonable assumption is that the video included here is somehow fake for it is of a FG TD suggesting that Ireland should send weapons belonging to the Irish Defence forces to kill Russian soldiers.

And since when did we go from Defence to Offence and drop our neutrality.

URGENT CALL FOR TD’S TO TABLE A MOTION ON THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION’S AGREEMENT ON PANDEMIC, PREVENTION, PREPARATION AND RESPONSE: STOP THE GOVERNMENT FROM AGREEING TO A GLOBAL LEGAL INSTRUMENT THAT SUSPENDS IRISH SOVEREIGNITY UNDER ARTICLE 6 OF THE CONSTITUTION

We have received several queries following our post of 27th February. We have below explained the implications on a World Health Assembly legal Treaty or Regulation on pandemic response and, at the end of this post, we have drafted a submission that people can send to their TD’s to table a motion. The people of Ireland have a right to be publicly informed and involved in any decision that could potentially suspend our Constitutional right to sovereignty. read full story / add a comment

From the outset, the composition of the Defence Forces Commission was flawed. The list of members does not represent the citizens of Ireland in a balanced way. Of the fifteen commission members, two-thirds are pro-EU ex-military men and officials favouring expanding military spending; people who benefit from enhanced career opportunities, have vested interests in remuneration, careers, promotions, salaries, pensions and medals, resulting from an enlarged military budget allocation. Foreign agents, Haakon Bruun-Hanssen a Norwegian, Anja Dalgaard-Nielsen a Dane and Esa Pulkkinen a Finn, should have no place on neutral Ireland’s Defence Forces Commission.

On January 15th 2022, Stephen’s wife Noriko suffered a catastrophic episode requiring life-saving brain surgery. Thankfully, Noriko survived the operation but ‘recovery’ - as-and-when it progresses - will be long and arduous. We are also facing an imminent house move because the house we have been renting for 7 years is being sold from under us. Meanwhile, and apart from persistent and unrelenting harassment from the Gardai operating under the illicit instructions of corrupt judges; we are being shut out - literally - from lawful access to the Courts and all of our attempts to pursue valid complaints or contact ‘‘the Authorities’ are being unlawfully denied to us. Thousands of people worldwide have responded in kindness and love to the news of Noriko’s predicament and suggestions have been made to set up a fund to help us - especially with the upcoming move whereby we hope to raise enough money to secure some sort of a safe ‘home’ environment going forwards. We would greatly appreciate any and all help at this difficult time but our first preference is that people purchase the CCC book (below left) so that our mission to raise awareness of the great evils we are all facing continues. If you wish, you may contact Stephen privately with any other offers of help at donate@integrityireland.ie. read full story / add a comment

A convoy will be leaving Belfast on Sat Feb 5th as a show of solidarity with the Canadian Truckers and we hope to meet up with fellow Warriors at B & Q, Swords, Dublin at 12:00 Noon, who can make a return trip to Belfast.

We are are trying to reach as many people in the counties along the route and further afield who may be able to join us, or who can come out with banners/posters etc to support us on the overhead bridges along the M1 Motorway, and this resource is the fastest way of getting the information out to people.
