Sunday and the Week’s Media Stupid Statement April 21, 2019

Posted by guestposter in Uncategorized.

Saw this ad in the IT during the week and thought it unrivaled for giving a sense of a certain worldview…as always any other contributions gratefully accepted…

Though the stuff about the really pretty innocuous Diane Abbott mojito on a tube comes a close second…I like her twitter feed on it.

Eoghan Harris quoting Lionel Shriver as an “unbiased” observer of NI politics is classic, especially when one remembers this:

That’s a good one PC, he’s some so and so is EH and of course he thrives on the fact few will fact check him

Varadkar is rightly concerned that a hard Brexit, making partition visible, would very likely aggravate the on-going low level violence.

‘The senseless killing of Northern Irish journalist Lyra McKee is a sombre reminder that Ireland’s Troubles are not entirely gone and buried….
Saoradh also see any political instability over Brexit in Ireland as an opportunity. The still unresolved issue of how to avoid a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic when the UK leaves the EU offers them an opening. So the New IRA’s “war” will probably go on….
For old IRA men, England’s difficulties are always an Irish republican’s opportunity and until the political crisis over Brexit is finally resolved, the shadow of a New IRA gunman will still loom over Ireland’s future.”

Capitulation to the DUP, as Harris advocates, is not the answer.

EH ‘full of sound and fury, signifying nothing’ as per usual.

No surprise to discover the, eh, hidden depths to his new idol (David Trimble clearly a bit too known to the Irish public to trot out, bar a bare mention in passing).

“ruthless in the hunt”…

” In reality, it is the waste collectors, the nurses, and the cleaners whose shoulders are supporting the apex of the pyramid. They are the true mechanism of social solidarity. Meanwhile, a growing share of those we hail as “successful” and “innovative” are earning their wealth at the expense of others. The people getting the biggest handouts are not down around the bottom, but at the very top. …
by leveraging control over something that already exists, such as land, knowledge, or money, to increase your wealth. You produce nothing, yet profit nonetheless. By definition, the rentier makes his living at others’ expense, using his power to claim economic benefit….
Studies conducted by the International Monetary Fund and the Bank for International Settlements – not exactly leftist thinktanks – have revealed that much of the financial sector has become downright parasitic. How instead of creating wealth, they gobble it up whole….
a big part of the modern banking sector is essentially a giant tapeworm gorging on a sick body. It’s not creating anything new, merely sucking others dry. ”
