'I'm a bit OCD with germs' - O'Sullivan avoids handshakes after Scottish Open win

Snooker
Ronnie O'Sullivan comfortably brushed aside James Cahill at the Scottish Open then claimed he did not shake his opponents' hand for fear of germs.The world number three whitewashed his fellow Englishman, to whom he lost at last season's World Championship, 4-0 to progress to the third round.But he fist-bumped Cahill and the referee instead of crossing palms."It's easier to do that and I don't get any germs," O'Sullivan explained to Eurosport after the match."I'll admit I'm a bit OCD with germs. I don't open door handles, I always have tissues on door handles. I am a bit OCD like that."O'Sullivan had promised to keep taking risks despite a narrow 4-3 win over Dominic Dale in the previous round at Glasgow's Emirates Arena, but averaged 12 seconds a shot throughout his latest performance."It didn't feel like 12 seconds, it felt like 21 seconds," said the former world champion, who next faces compatriot Martin Gould. "I felt like I was playing slower tonight."I came out and tried to play a little bit more conservative because I have been a bit too attacking I think. I just tried to rein it in

The biggest Trade Union dispute in Irish History was the Dublin Lockout of 1913 . The trade union movement in Ireland had just begun . Led by Jim Larkin of the National Union of Dock Labourers (NUDL) and Later his own Union - The Irish Transport and General Workers Union (ITGWU) , workers up and down the country were being united by Larkin to campaign for better conditions and wages . In August 1913 , hundreds of workers were fired by the Dublin United Tramway Company accused of joining larkin's union . In Solidarity , the other workers went on strike . Employer groups responded by forcing employees to a sign a pledge not to support the striking workers or join larkin's union . When the workers refused they were locked out of their Jobs and replaced with scab labourers from Britain , for seven months twenty thousand Irish were locked out of their Jobs and plunged into proverty , Larkin was vilified by the Irish Independent, the Sunday Independent and the Evening Herald all of which were owned by the Employer leading the Lockout , William Martin Murphy

Opinion : Saturdays Free Speech Rally opportunity for Conservative Socialists to reclaim the Left

politics
Over the past number of years , Many republicans and socialists on the conservative left have gone silent as they watch on in horror at the antics of the New Left Wing in Ireland . Many conservative republicans and socialists might be pro life , pro traditional values and protecting workers rights through a system of "normal" migration , normal migration being where if someones skills are needed and those skills cannot be filled by a domestic worker you issue them a work visa as opposed to "mass" migration where everyone just piles into the country , mass migration was always seen by the traditional left as a tool by the ruling elite to drive down wages and undermine workers rights . But its the system being cheerleaded by the New left wing in Ireland bankrolled by their new Imperial Masters in the EU Commission . Even James Connolly spoke about the replacement of Irish Workers in a speech written in 1916 .. Here in Ireland we have another kind of dilution of labour. Everywhere since the conscription act was first mooted there has been a rush of
