The extent of MK Ultra can be debated- the fact that it existed and was pretty gruesome cannot, the US government has even admitted a lot of stuff to do with it. However I suspect you are the type who prefers to see no evil and believe that if not in everything, essentially all is right with the world, and what is more it is getting better. Only the most naïve also without going into to the Occult aspects of it are ignorant of the massive role that Freemasonry plays in the upper stratum of French and British society.
I am the type who doesn't ride roughshod with every headbanger with an anti-capitalist list, a chara.

Kind of a sensible lad, me.

Hope that's ok .

If you think that Capitalism is sensible - then you really are a lost cause. Or maybe you like Ireland being ruled by multinationals and our population being replaced by cheap immigrant labour.

Except there was no profit in any of the 3 places, they survived solely on oil etc. Were it not for oil, the most efficient transportation in Lybia would be a sickly camel.

You know about MK Ultra, believe in went a lot further than we have been told, as well as understand that the sinister aspects of Freemasonry (leaving aside the Dark Occultism that has historically often gone along with it), and guess what? Still not be anti-capitalist. There are plenty of believers in capitalism out there who are very aware on these matters.

Leo Varadkar has been criticised for calling houses starting at €315,000 'affordable'


Leo Varadkar has been criticised for calling houses starting at €315,000 'affordable'

Leo Varadkar was unable to provide a specific figure in answer to the question of what constituted affordable housing when questioned in the Dáil on Wednesday.

During Leader’s Questions, Sinn Féin housing spokesperson Eoin Ó Broin asked Varadkar to provide a working definition of what affordable housing was, and how many such units would be delivered by government next year.

Varadkar replied:

“I cannot give the Deputy a numerical definition of affordable housing.

Obviously it depends on the individual.

“I certainly believe that somebody who earns the average income in the State should be able to get a mortgage and purchase a home.”

Varadkar went on to say that he could not provide an answer to the second part of Ó Broin’s question as he did not have a numerical answer for the first.
Affordable housing?


The Dáil question arose after Varadkar and Housing Minister Eoghan
Murphy visited a number of social housing sites in the Fingal County Council area on Monday.


Varadkar posted a video on Twitter from one of the developments – Hansfield Wood in Clonsilla (where 47 social housing units have been provided).

Commenting on the development, Varadkar said that there were “over a thousand new homes being built in the area at the moment”.

So near and yet so far...

Of course, when your father is a highly paid Indian doctor and you are born with a silver spoon in your mouth, 315,000 euro seems quite affordable for a home. But, it really does show the commitment of Fine Gael to affordable housing - when their leader can't even put a figure on what he intends the word "affordable" to mean. Perhaps other intentions occupy his mind.

Turns out that Fine Gael didn't even discuss the homelessness crisis at their "National Conference" this weekend. Is that what Irish political parties call an Ard Fheis?

From Focus Ireland

We were shocked to hear the statement today by Leo Varadkar, who claimed that homelessness low by international standards. https://www.rte.ie/…/…/919200-fine-gael-national-conference/
This is both factually and morally wrong.


The data is very clear. Irish homelessness is higher than our 'peers' of similar size, and it's getting worse.

Homelessness in Ireland under the Varadkar Régime (I'll bet that none of these homeless people are migrants),
