Signs of Hope – A continuing series May 23, 2019

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Gewerkschaftler suggested this recently:

I suggest this blog should have a regular (weekly) slot where people can post happenings at the personal or political level that gives them hope that we’re perhaps not going to hell in a handbasket as quickly as we thought. Or as the phlegmatic Germans put it “hope dies last”.

Any contributions this week?


1. EWI - May 23, 2019

I hear good news from the Irish Times, via their Tansplaining correspondant Ronan McGreevy – if we Irish could just learn to be more ‘diffident’ to the British crown and its rule, then all the unpleasantness of the past 850 years might not have happened.

Well, that’s that solved!

So “all the unpleasantness” is our fault! Due to our attitude!

The Tory party’s divisions and in-fighting.


EWI - May 23, 2019

And Trump arriving in a week or so to stir the pot.


3. GW - May 23, 2019

Special (one-off) big Fridays for Future demos/strikes in Portrush, Belfast, Enniskillen, Derry/Londonderry, Armagh, Killkenny, Longford and Limerick. Everyone invited not just school students & young people.

And that’s not including the regular ones.

The above is take from the official map, but it’s clear in Germany that not all demos have been pinned on it.

Any more in Ireland (island) known?

Tomorrow (Friday 24th) around mid-day mostly.

Dutch exit poll suggests that Forum for Democracy, the new far-right Eurosceptic party, have only finished fourth today:

Wow – there’s even a F4F group in Rojava. A place seriously hit by Capitalogenic Global Warming.


6. GW - May 24, 2019

Excellent F4F demo / school strike today.

The energy is ten times that of your adult trudge.

If this table is accurate, Farage might underperform on Sunday:

Anything that softens his cough is good in my book. Cheers for the link Paul. Much appreciated.
