    Took me a minute to figure out what he was saying.

    Apologies if this is Freemen Crackpots For Beginners stuff, but Mr. Suit and Sandals had a flag of the four provinces, is that a new fruitloop battleflag or have they been using it for a while?

    For the last year or so I've been wondering where the hell all the four province flags on telegraph poles and lamp posts have been coming from, can I take it now I know?

    Either that or rugby fans 😉

    Beades in the news again. The last sentence in the quote is no surprise.

    The Court of Appeal (CoA) has overturned a decision that some 20 people who have lived for several years in two Dublin properties were in contempt of court due to their ongoing refusal to leave the buildings.

    The High Court ruled last year that the occupants, who had claimed to have been living at 31 Richmond Avenue, Fairview, and 21 Little Mary Street, Dublin 2, for 15 years had breached orders requiring them to vacate the properties.

    The residents said they had failed to comply with orders requiring them to vacate because they had nowhere else to go.

    The orders were sought by financial fund Pepper Finance which acquired loans taken out of the properties, whose registered owner is businessman Jerry Beades, which had fallen in arrears.

    While some occupants claimed to have paid rent over years to Mr Beades, there was no evidence, since the possession orders were made, that Mr Beades has made payments to anyone else, including Pepper, the Court heard.

    I read recently that Ben has suffered, in his words, a second street related heart attack, and that he had two stents put in. Doubtlessly, the urgent medical procedure was done by a lay surgeon....

    I see there's another foray into vanity publising by Tom D'arcy. He took out an ad in the Wall Street Journal promising millions to anyone who'd lost money on Irish bank shares...but only if you buy his new book.

    I read the first chapter of that book somewhere. I'd highly recommend it. It's just himself on a personal whine that he wasn't able to build his f off house in Howth and that planners wanted him to follow plans and keep to the character of the area. Then the recession happened and he went broke because he over borrowed. Which wasn't one bit his fault. Then he was awarded a masters degree for feeling hard done by.

    I'm sure that he insisted that all of the medical staff treating him were unvaccinated and had shelled out for his €5 certificates (plus postage and packing) declaring them "Unvaccinated Legends".

    Friends of the thread at it again.

    Not necessarily a freeman argument this time - but seems that injunctions are another thing the Burkes don’t agree with

    There's arguably an interesting discussion and debate to be had there. But the family are so terrible at getting there point across - they go straight to causing a scene in the wrong venue and alienating everyone.

    For such an academic family they're awful thick

    Whatever about the pronouns stuff, you call a child whatever the parents tell you their child’s name is.

    The Burke’s go out of their way to seek conflict - this is just the latest example



  • Registered Users Posts: 27,515 ✭✭✭✭ Hotblack Desiato


    There's no debate to be had here tbh. It's nothing more than common courtesy to address people in the way they wish to be addressed. You'd be annoyed if a work colleague insisted on calling you by a nickname you don't like, but that's in the ha'penny place compared to this.

    A teacher insisting on their 'right' to intentionally inflict distress on a vulnerable pupil is despicable.

    Health Food shop closing in Wexford. The owner is anti-vax, and sympathetic to GoD and JW. Quite a few alt-health people seems sympathetic to them.

    "He did not get vaccinated. “I would have known about the controversy to do with vaccines since1974 from a Boston-based political holistic magazine called the East West Journal."

    Was he ever afraid of contracting Covid? “If you don’t believe it you don’t feel the fear. I don’t believe in Covid. Like that top HSE guy in the Midlands said on Primetime about two years ago before he left, I believe it’s a flu and it should be treated like that.

    "I’ve always been into truth in life. The most important thing when you make a choice is that you make it with truth. A lot of people came in during Covid and many of them had taken the vaccine but regretted it due to the side effects.”"


    "He also wants to spread the word about The Irish Light Newspaper (launched by Gemma O’ Doherty and John Waters), published in conjunction with The Light paper in the UK, which has a strong anti-vaccine message, as he wants to “get out a different point of view of what’s going on in society, to let people make their own decisions.”"

    Whatever about the other loo-lah stuff, why on earth are they allowing him to use their "newspaper" to shill those two awful racist bigots?

    In his action Mr Boon alleges that last year he advanced monies to entities linked to Mr Birles, whom it is alleged had represented himself to be an “Irish Lord from an ancient family” and an expert lawyer in maritime law.

    Hmmm....
