Only for two major battles won by Christian Kings in 732 AD and 1683 AD the dominant religion in Europe today would be Islam. This assertion has been made by many reputable historians, both Christian and Islamic, down through the ages. The avowed intentions of the commanders of defeated Islamic armies in above battles were to convert all of Europe by the sword to their religion. We owe a debt of gratitude to both Charles Martel, King of the Franks, and John Sobiski, King of Poland for turning the tide.

“Everywhere, welfare authorities were calling in the unemployed for questioning and examination as to whether they were fit for work, those who were deemed fit were drafted into……schemes of one kind or another; those who failed to appear were taken off the register, and their payments stopped. Rent supplements were cut, payments to carers for the old and sick for medication were slashed. A working-class woman who asked the welfare officer for help in paying for her 75-year-old mother, whom she cared for at home, was told that the state would no longer pay for such people, who were nothing but a burden on the national community’’.

Thank you Ms Lagarde. Thank you ever so much for paying tribute to my heroism over the past years in enduring the regime of austerity that you, the Brians and Enda imposed on me and my fellow citizens. I’m so proud and re-energised by your plaudits!

Does our Taoiseach have a few dopplegangers wandering about the country? He seems to be so busy opening factories, software houses, call centres, turnings sods and filibustering in the Dáil, how does he have time to run the country?

Like many of the most fervent Cork hurling supporters I was sorely disappointed at the outcome of last Sundays All-Ireland SHC semi-final against Tipperary. More so since it was Tipperary who hammered us.

Seemingly the Government, due to an EU regulation, is obliged to include the ‘black market’ in the economic figures for the country.

Wed, 16 Oct, 2013
Reading reports on this year’s drawn All-Ireland hurling final and listening to people talking about the performance of our team, the general consensus seems to conclude that Cork were inferior to Clare. People, pundits and indeed hurling fans, seem to think that Cork got the ‘out of jail card’.

Some months ago, our Taoiseach, during his Address to the Nation speech, announced that the Irish people were not responsible for the monetary state of the country, yet, when he is the perceived centre of attention at the Davos Forum, he ridicules us, the Irish people, to the world.
