Witless and Unbalanced have warned that Britain could face a ?prolonged period? of excess deaths due to the collateral damage caused by the lockdowns. No, really? Who could have possibly predicted that?!?

According to a leaked Russian government opinion poll, popular support for the war in Ukraine is beginning to weaken. Twenty-five per cent of respondents want the war to continue vs 55% who want a negotiated settlement.

The demand for an end to the ban on on-shore wind farms is bizarre. As Matt Ridley points out in the Spectator, they?re not banned and the energy they produce is expensive and makes gas more expensive, not less.

It's hard to make sense of a policy that spends billions on lockdowns to 'save lives' while also assisting many of the same people to commit suicide.

A simplistic use of 'herd immunity' led to fanciful claims that COVID-19 would disappear once 60% of the population was vaccinated. But is there a dark side to aiming at 'herd immunity' through vaccines?

Without suggesting it was one of the young buck front bench members and policy makers of RSF, I just sort of feel like I have to question not only the historical validity of the centenary thing of the Fianna Eireann but also pass comment on the ethics of child soldiers.

& just to make 'em feel good I'd love to know when girlies in sunglasses got to wear the green tangtops and march as equals with their boyo peers without anyone sneering that they could be of the radical sapphic variety and better off with the sisters of the Holy Faith.

(no slight meant to either Fianna Eirinn or the sisters of the Holy Faith).

Bulmer Hobson is believed to have started the youth group to which anyone proclaiming membership today would be admitting party to a terrorist organisation according to Eire, UK, EU and US law in 1903.

It's 2009.

the year of our Lord 2009
subtracted thereof 1903
is 106 years ago.

The first FE song, & a catchy little ditty it was, came out in 1910. = 99 years ago.

The first editions of the FE handbook, & jam-packed with moral fibre as it was, if not a bit short on practical instruction for guerilla warfare, procurement of false ID's, improvisation of explosives, locating of safe-houses or how to speak posh and elude all suspicions - did not appear till 1914

95 years ago.

In case you don't know the rest or don't really care for centenaries - there's a YOUTUBE VID!!! to explain it all to you.

Thus may you realise how instead of joining either the RC "Irish boy scouts" or "Irish guides" and lining up behind the Holy Sacrament on its romp round your village every August or (dare we say it) enlisting in the the suspiciously protestant non-denominational "Boy scouts / Girl guides of Ireland" earning badges by tying knots worthy of a Japanese Shibari bondage expert in between helping old women across the road, you could have done your bit for Ireland by running semtex into Fermanagh and smuggling transistor radios into Long Kesh up your bum for the lads!

Many noble men and women dedicated to the cause of Irish freedom and excellence amongst the nations passed through the paramilitary ranks of the Irish republican movement's youth group.

As such it is fitting to mark the traditions to which they themselves gave credit.

Nonetheless it must not pass without comment that the recruitment of and involvement of children and minors in warfare or armed struggle of any kind is a reprehensible wrong of such gravity that it is specifically identified as one iniquity from which we ought be free in the universal declaration of human rights.

May the future generations of Irish ensure that the world is free of child soldiers!



sure Jayzhus I wish I couldn't tie the knots - & given half the chance tell people I wouldn't be able to do that if my childhood hadn't been subject to such perverse exploitation by adults.

100 years on the Irish have no need to recruit child soldiers

they had much better songs than "dib dib dib" or "kumbya".

Hi splutter cough!
My , but that is a bad dose you have there - it has brought tears to my eyes , too , on seeing its written manifestation !

TAMIFLU side effects, perhaps ?
Incidentally , on the Falls Road in Belfast in 1902 Bulmer Hobson organised a Fianna Éireann Junior Hurling League , through which he intended to promote a link between sport and the Irish language - in 1909 , that group was re-organised into the Na Fianna Éireann we know today.
May your God , and the Sisters of the Holy Faith , see you through your present (?) troubles , 'Splutter Cough' : I fear you are beyond the reach of mere medicine ;-) !
Thanks!
Sharon.

very impresive display and well received by all the on lookers
great job, well done

Thanks!
