Political upheaval in Ireland and the EU

How many times are we told that the European Union is about bringing peace and unity after World War II , apart from the irony that Germany , which was solely responsible for starting that war now has most influence through its majority MEPS and is in control of the finances through the European Central Bank in Frankfurt , unity and peace is far from the reality on the ground .

Large sections of society are clearly not feeling the Love , unity and peace

When someone lodges an appeal against the decision of their Local Authority , the case is assigned to one civil servant at an Bord Pleanala called an inspector . This inspector examines the case and issues a recommendation to the Bord Members as to whether permission

Should women walk behind their men

Should women walk behind their men

I live quite close to a Direct Provision centre in Dublin and I get to see a lot of the new arrivals out and about . On a few occasions now , I've observed middle eastern couples where the wife dressed in a Burqa walks behind the husband as he leads the way . Only today , a man was walking with his wife trailing behind about three metres . she was dressed in a pink burqa which I guess isn't as bad as all black but the husband turned to her and said something like hurry up or words along those lines . They both stopped
