Seig Heil, Benedict!

I see der Fuhrer der Pope has launched another hysterical attack on homosexuals. Shades of his native country’s Nazi past.

I’m always deeply suspicious of people who are so overtly and rabidly anti-homosexual.  Benedict’s latest rant reminds me of American bible-thumper Ted Haggard who turned out to be gay himself.

Pope Hypocrite would be better employed rooting out the real evil of child sexual abuse within his own organisation.  Of course, he probably doesn’t think it is as sinful as homosexuality.

This story reminds me of a Christian Brother I knew in CBC Cork many years ago.

An Egyptian mathematics teacher is due to go on trial accused of beating an 11-year-old pupil to death because he did not do his homework.

After using a ruler, Haitham Nabeel Abdelhamid, 23, allegedly took the boy outside the classroom and hit him violently in his stomach.

Happy days, indeed!

Mary Harney should resign or be fired

No, not because of wash-and-blow-dry-gate or piano-gate, but because she has failed as Health Minister.

Same to you, Mary

Same to you, Mary

Harney created the HSE with the promise that the new body would make our health system more efficient.  It hasn’t.  It has simply created a new level of bureaucracy. Even worse, it has created a buffer for the Minister to hide behind when problems arise.  Strike one.

The Ppars fiasco happened on Harney’s watch.  Strike two.

Three years ago, (or was it four?), Harney declared the situation in our A&Es to be a ‘national emergency’ and promised decisive action.  In the interim, nothing has changed.  Strike three.

At the last election, the people of this country utterly repudiated the party Harney represented – to the point where it no longer exists.  Harney has absolutely no political mandate to be in Cabinet.  The only reason she is there at all is because none of the Cute Hoors wants to touch Health with a barge-pole.

Harney told us we should choose between Boston and Berlin.  What she has given us is Baghdad.

Roy Keane ready to run away (again)

Keep it shut

Keep it shut

Roy Keane should keep his mouth shut and concentrate on the job he is paid to do.  That was true when he was a player and it is true now that he is a manager.

The first true crisis he faces with Sunderland and he immediately starts talking about bailing out.  Just what the club needs at such a difficult time: more uncertainty.

At least he’s consistent.  As always, when things aren’t going the way he wants, Keano picks up his ball and goes home.


(And incidentally, I’m a Corkman.)
