A recent study p ublished in the Lancet Medical Journal by academics at Kings College London and Harvard University examined for the first time , the impact of Covid-19 symptoms on vaccinated people vs unvaccinated . The study which was supported by the UK's department of Health , used data from a large population of individuals reporting their symptoms on a mobile app . The Study found that vaccinated people had reduced symptoms , less need for hospital assessment and less risk of prolonged illness . Almost all individual symptoms of COVID-19 disease were less common in the vaccinated vs.unvaccinated populations with SARS-CoV-2 infection, and more people were completely

Letters: Donate unwanted vaccine to UNICEF ?

I would like to donate my unwanted vaccine to UNICEF . I'm sure many others would follow too if such a system existed . I've heard UNICEF looking for money to buy vaccines for poorer Countries but right now , there are many of us here in Ireland who didn't want their vaccine and would happily donate it to such a cause. If the Government was to establish a database were people like myself could register and donate their vaccine to such a cause not only would it bring me personal satisfaction by helping others but the government may lay off us a bit and realise that

Letters: When did schools start delegating STEM Education to Trade Unions and Football Clubs

STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) was traditionally the Job of Schools and their Teachers to impart such Education to Children . Now it appears , some Schools are using the services of Trade Unions and Football Clubs . A number of Schools in Clondalkin and Tallaght have signed up to a Unite Trade Union initiative in conjunction with Shamrock Rovers whereby activists from Unite will educate children on these subjects using their own methods . The launch of the programme took place on Tuesday with Schools such as St. Thomas’s NS in Tallaght , St. Bernadette’s NS in Clondalkin and Divine Mercy Balgaddy already

Trinity Professor slams Irish Times over extreme anti Brexit rhetoric
The Former head of Social Policy at Trinity College Dublin Prof Anthony Coughlan has slammed Irish Times Columnist Fintan O'Toole over extreme Anti Brexit rhetoric accusing the newspaper of damaging relations between Ireland and Britain . In his open letter to Fintan O'Toole Professor Couglan who was an influential figure in establishing the Northern Civil Rights Movement as secretary of the Dublin Wolfe Tone Society argues that the Irish Government must now "act as a mediator between the EU and the UK and help London get the best deal possible with the EU, while recognizing that the UK is leaving the customs union and single market".
 

TO:Fintan O’Toole c/o The Irish TimesDublin 2

Tuesday 6 August 2019

Dear Fintan,

I had to smile to myself at seeing the heading to today’s Irish Timeseditorial: “Rhetoric could damage [Anglo-Irish] relations”, when the Irish Times has been the principal source of anti-English and anti-Brexit rhetoric in the three years since the 2016 referendum, thereby significantly damaging those very relations.

Over that time the Irish Times has consistently sneered at the 17 million people who voted to leave the EU in the UK referendum as reactionaries, racists and red-necks. At least weekly, sometimes daily, your cartoonist Martyn Turner has mocked the Brexiteers.

Your own book on the subject plumbed abysms of bile to throw at Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg for being supposedly responsible for Brexit, even though large numbers of British Labour supporters and left-wingers, as well as conservatives and non-party people, were among the 17 million who voted “Leave”.

The truth is that Brexit is neither a right-wing nor a left-wing cause. It is just democratic – a value that transcends conventional Right and Left.

By voting to “take back control” the Brexiteers are looking for no more than the classic democratic right to make their own laws, command their own money and borders and decide their own government policies, rather than have these decided by a supranational EU Federation in which the Brussels Commission, Council of Ministers and Court – bodies that are responsible as collectivities to no one – effectively decide most of their laws and policies.

At bottom the EU project is an attempt to undermine the democratic heritage of the French Revolution, the right of nations to self-determination, in the interest of European Transnational Big Business and High Finance and the State interests of Germany and France.

It hollows out Europe’s Nation States, leaving their governmental structures formally intact but with their original core functions sucked out of them. Yet this supranational integration project is historically doomed, for there is no European “demos” or people that could give it democratic legitimacy.

Democracy can exist only at the level of the Nation State. It is this principle that animates the Brexit cause.

It is a pity that you and the Irish Times are so uncritically supportive of this anti-democratic project. The Irish backstop was an attempt to keep the UK as a whole in the EU customs union and single market, even though any meaningful Brexit must mean leaving these.

If the Varadkar/Coveney Government had conceded a time-limit on the backstop, it would have got through the House of Commons on that third vote and Mrs May would still be British Prime Minister.

Now that the Tory Government is bent on really leaving – which WILL HAPPEN even if there should be a Labour/Corbyn interlude – it is surely time for the Irish Government, in the interest of the Irish people, to do what Ray Bassett, Dan O’ Brien, Eoghan Harris and others have been urging: seek to act as a mediator between the EU and the UK and help London get the best deal possible with the EU, while recognizing that the UK is leaving the customs union and single market.

The EU Commission will be annoyed at such a turn, but most EU Member States will greet it with relief.

I am copying this letter, plus the enclosed press articles on Brexit that you may not have seen, to various media people and politicians because of the public interest nature of the issue.

All the very best to you …Yours sincerely

Anthony Coughlan Director (Associate Professor Emeritus in Social Policy, Trinity College Dublin)

the people voted to leave the EU which includes all institutions . respect their vote . We either believe in democracy or we dont , if we dont then we are living in a totalitarian dictatorship.
^
2 x Lisbon referendums . 2 x Nice , i dont think they like democracy very much in the eu commission .

^
our foolish politicians agreed after brexit to leave all negotiations with Britain to the EU Commission , its backfired badly on them now , they dont have any respect or standing anymore with anyone accross the waters . they have let Ireland down badly and lost my respect too .
^
the EU only benefits very Rich People like Fintan O'Toole , the workers of Ireland need to stand together and say NO . enough is enough .
