I was absolutely outraged and appalled, but not at all surprised given this 'Government's' track record that they have refused to give Dublin Bus the 150 extra buses for 2004 and 2005 that they were promised by this 'Government' under the National Development Plan (NDP) and that they, and indeed the Greater Dublin Area in general need urgently, until they have opened up the bus transport market to competition and the privatisation of routes to their rich friends, with the embarassing and humiliating position where Dublin Bus have had to actually beg for More Quality Bus Corridors (QBCs) Not to be opened until they get their 150 extra buses as promised! One other side effect from this nasty, petty and vindictive move by this 'Government' is that our eldery and disabled will have to wait even longer to have the whole bus fleet fully wheelchair accessible. read full story / add a comment

Is there another way of hitting the golfball out of sight without the skill and power of John Daly? Is it a sin to take pleasure in golf? The Golfing Union of Ireland seems determined in a jansenistic way to curb the single most sought after requirement and desire of everyone who ever made even the most rudimentary attempt to play golf. read full story / add a comment

Coca-Cola may be making noises in the UK to cut down its branding and marketing of caffeinated sugar water to children, but in the US they are steaming full bore ahead like a schoolyard bully. The "pouring rights" contracts at public schools are not just incredibly bad policy, but they have been challenged as unlawful. read full story / add a comment

This is a link to the list of recalled foods from supermarkets. The food is found to have a cancer causing food dye Sudan1. It is being taken off the shelves and if you have any of it at home, even if you bought it months ago, don't eat it.
Supermarkets in the Uk are offering refunds if you return with the wrappers, I assume they are doing the same here. read full story / add a comment

The latest McDonalds ad is telling. A man rushes to the counter and proceeds to push a microphone into the face of some bewildered kid bedecked in a green smock. So whats in your burgers? he asks, in pursuit of the sort of anti-corporate expose that has fuelled Fast Food Nation and Super Size Me. Pressed, the kid blurts 100% Irish Beef. read full story / add a comment

As a regular commuter from Celbridge it has become apparent that the level of service has gradually deteriorated over the past month. After a series of 1 hour waits at the bus stop I phoned the controller for the 67 route this morning. He informed me that the service is getting progressively worse but there is nothing that can be done about it. Previously when a bus was running so late as to miss its departure time, another bus was sent from the garage to cover it. This is no longer possible, as an application has to be made to the Department of Transport, because running extra buses can be construed as anti-competition. Effectively then, any attempt by Dublin Bus to stick to its timetable is deemed as unfair to private operators! A similar thing happened on No Car Day, when Dublin Bus tried to lay on extra buses.
Can it be merely coincidence that this downgrading of the 67 coincides with plans by Mortons (Circle Line) to introduce a "full" service from Celbridge in the New year? read full story / add a comment

New York State government is widely known to be dysfunctional. State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer seems determined to be part of the solution, rather than part of the problem.

'The Irish poet Brendan Kennelly once described Bewley's Caf in Grafton Street as the 'heart and the hearth of Dublin'. Dublin, he said, would not be Dublin without Bewley's. These sentiments have been echoed by generations of Irish people since Joshua Bewley first introduced tea to the Irish public in 1835.

Bewley's is a name synonymous in the history of Dublin and more recently of Ireland as a whole. Bewley's itself has a rich history of growth and survival which has proved it to be one of the last bastions of tradition in a changing Ireland.' read full story / add a comment
