Houses being built and refused by anyone is certainly relevant to a discussion about homelessness. Why should he not have brought up travellers and the issues they cause in society?

How did RTÉ respond when you asked them to do this?

I would expect RTE management to do their job without having to be asked by people who directly pay their wages.

If RTE management having read the twitter criticism and having watched Tubridys petulant childish behaviour still dont think there is cause for concern then RTE is no longer an objective professional broadcaster.

Fair enough.
You're just complaining about RTÉ on boards, but you haven't made an actual complaint to RTÉ.

Will you be back on here next week complaining that RTÉ haven't dealt appropriately with the complaint you didn't tell them about?

This is completely true, I worked in a solicitors office before and there was Travellers in most days with personal injuries claim. They even take cases against each other, like the wife would sue the husband who had an accident while a passenger in the car.

Unfortunately, the likes of Turd-idy and his RTE quango co-horts are untouchable. They are protected by liberal and leftist politicians where you will find an enormous amount of mutual back-scratching going on.

Don't forget that RTE has a complete disdain for the squeezed middle. We are the people who pay for the terrible service that RTE provide to the country through their disproportionate-charge-for-what-we-get television license. RTE tries at every opportunity to seek retribution on those of us who object to their requests for an increase in the TV tax .... in order to give pay increases to their already exorbitantly paid "talent".

When the squeezed middle finally get a voice in this country (and it will be soon), I'd say that the Television license will be on the way out. Either RTE sink or they swim on their own.

Just on insurance, I have a small holding acroos the border here in longford, a couple of sheds and 8 acres of land.
I have house insurance here and a few sheds with 20 acres of land, in Cavan.
My farm insurance is higher in longford and has to be separated from here by fbd, or if I include it all together it would be dearer, I was told it was because of the high crime rate on longford farms because of travellers.
I'm not saying that's the official line, but that's what I was told anyway.

What are you talking about? Michael D topped the poll in every single constituency and only in a handful was Casey even reasonably close behind him.

Wrong O, completely wrong. He was asked about homelessness and introduced Tipp and travellers himself. He then went on to have a go at SEMS.

Again I’ll ask the question, what is traveller diversity? What makes them diverse?

He hasn't addressed any of the other issues you mention, that I can see. That is what his supporters think he was referring to in some sort of masonic secret shorthand way.
He brought it up in the context of discussing people turning down offers of housing.
Perfectly legitimate context.

Again I will answer - if you don't know the answer to that,(what travellers say about it and what your government accepted) go research it. It is not my responsibility to inform you. Nor to defend what travellers think.
Personally I accept the arguments for SEMS.

It may or may not be legitimate. The poster said he 'was asked' specifically about the Tipp situation and SEMS. He wasn't, he introduced those subjects himself.

So you can’t answer the question then

Go figure
