Why is everyone who disagrees with government called "Far right"

Why is everyone who disagrees with government called "Far right"

In the news again today , we hear this idea yet again of "far right extremist groups" organising Anti Lockdown Protests on Social Media and handing out 'far right literature' . Over the past 20 years , almost every public protest in Ireland was organised by groups on social media . If we take the anti water meter protests for example , these were all organised by groups on social media , ranging in political persuasion from left wing - far left and I supported their cause at the time even though I would be more centred myself . Many of these anti water meter protests

Getting a haircut is not essential but getting a coffee is ??

With hairdressers and Barbers set to be closed until May at the earliest, what are we supposed to do with our hair ? . Every Day , I watch people coming out of the local coffee shop with their coffee and cakes or whatever and this is deemed Essential but getting your hair cut is not essential ?

Ireland needs "responsible" borders approach for healthy society to flourish

Ireland needs "responsible" borders approach for healthy society to flourish

So what would responsible borders look like ? At its most basic level responsible borders means ensuring people enter the Country 'through the proper channels' . What are the proper channels . For people outside the EU , that means applying for a work visa . The person is able to show they have a Job lined up that cant be filled by a domestic worker , will be able to support themselves financially and wont increase the burden on social services .

Fact check - The EU is NOT 'Europe' , Europe is a Continent

The EU or European Union is a political union of countries located on the Continent of Europe . It is NOT Europe . Europe is a 'Continent' . A giant land mass which scientists say formed some 200 million years ago when the supercontinent of Pangaea split into pieces . On the other hand , the EU was formed just 27 years ago , the 1st November 1993 to be precise when the Treaty on European Union also called Maastricht treaty came into force . Quote from treaty - "we the high contracting parties hereby establish among ourselves a european union" - Title 1 , Article A .
