Picturegate

Wow. Haven’t been paying much attention to the news recently. But this whole picturegate thing has certainly exploded hasn’t it?

For you poor innocent non-Irishers I’ll give a brief recap. Some artist hung two paintings of our glorious leader Brian Cowen in two different galleries in Ireland. Let’s just say they weren’t the most flattering

the Fantasy of Being Thin is not just about becoming small enough to be perceived as more acceptable. It is about becoming an entirely different person ; one with far more courage, confidence, and luck than the fat you has.

I am totally fed up with a lot of the comments about Mary Harney. I realise that as a politician she is fair game. And as a politician who is in charge of the Health Service at a time when it is scandal after scandal after horrendous error she deserves a hell of a lot of criticism.

Fixity of Tenure, Freedom to Sell and Fair Rent

Yesterday, at lunch I walked by An Roinn Iompair and spotted a very sorry looking tricolour; looking like it had been half blown off the flagpole a few days earlier and not been touched.
