As the Bell tolls for renters. So doth it ring the changes for The Green Man.

As Little King, Eamon Plantagenet, desperately clings to the Triple Alliance. He condones the end of the Eviction Ban. And sets out to banish, Neasa Horrigan, and also Patrick Costello, to the chill of the outer reaches of the Green Party and serious political life.

He shows his own, true democratic colours, and they ain’t completely green growth are they now? No social conscience allowed to sprout it’s Green leaf’s.

Power at any price. No doubt he’s acting in the interest of climate change! Evicted renters will certainly experience “CLIMATE CHANGES” in the so highly vaunted “EMERGENCY ACCOMMODATION” as advocated by his colleges in the Triple Alliance.

Apparently British Supermarkets will be imposing a limit on the amount of fruit and veg, each customer can purchase, over the next couple of months. Seemingly due to climate matters and the consequences of Brexit.

It’s so interesting, that while those people from various nations, gleefully gloat, in celebration. That their pressure and demeaning of Germany. Has forced, Germany to agree, that it will send it’s own Leopard Tanks to Ukraine, and permit other nations to do likewise,

Strange that less, glee and gloating is taking place, over, Germany’s success in pressuring, The American President, to send, the American Abrams Tanks to Ukraine. This despite, as reported, The American, Under Secretary for Policy having said; “That we SHOULD NOT BE PROVOIDING THE UKRAINIANS systems they can’t repair, they can’t sustain , and that they, over the long term, CAN’T AFFORD, because it’s not helpful” So it seems those Abrams Tanks etc are not going to be a simple gift to save democracy .

A NOT SO BRIEF, A MOMENT WITH SPENDING PENNEYS!

Went in to a Penneys Shop in Dublin, Yesterday. On a mission to purchase a pair of men’s Briefs, for myself. Having scrutinised every type and style available, chose to buy two packs of their own brand WOVEN BOXERS.

Took said packs home. opened one pack, to try one pair on. They did not fit me correctly. Well, having opened the first pack, knew, I would not be able to return that pack for a refund, common sense that. But as I had not opened or tampered with the second pack of Woven Boxers, headed back to same store with them, and receipt; Looking to get a refund for that one pack only.

At the till, a very nice and polite cashier, told me, “Penneys , don’t do refunds on underwear.” I pointed out to the cashier, the item was still in it’s packaging unopened and untouched by me. A manger was called, who repeated “That it was company policy not to give refunds on underwear, and that this was stated on my receipt,” I left.

But just hold on there, a moment. Customers only get a receipt, after they hand over payment for the goods. And the items are packed and the transaction is finished. Further more, This refund policy is stated on the back of the receipt. So how is the customer to know they will not be refunded for this type of purchase, when making a decision to buy? There’s certainly not any notice published/displayed of this, Penneys, no refund, Company Policy, on the shelves or the product’s packaging.

Now, for me, the financial loss was relatively small, even though I had bought two packs. And I can just use the items as floor cloths. But there were certainly more expensive products of the same type. And if someone, had, like me, been looking to provide themselves, a weeks supply or more of Briefs/Boxers, for a trip or such, it would be a significant loss.

One feels, one has been held up at gunpoint by a Highway Robber. Surely, Stores like Penneys, should be obliged to make such, non-refund policies in respect of certain items for sale, blatantly clear to customers, prior to payment being accepted for such goods. Either on the product shelves, the product packaging, or where the damage is about to be done to to customer’s pocket, at the cashiers tills!

Just to make sure, I had not missed any such notice on this products shelves. Returned to same Penneys Store today, to check if any such notices were displayed; And no, no such notice displayed on the products shelves.

MATTER IT, WHERE THE DRUM BEATS OR THE LONE HARP PLAYS?

Today read a very fine article, by, Sarah Carey, in the Irish Independent. Titled; “WHY THERE’S MORE TO THE CONCEPT OF A TRULY UNITED IRELAND THAN A SENTIMENTAL SOLGAN.” And in which Sarah Carey, refers to “To quiet decency of , Miche├íl Martin.” Somewhat rather symbolically being published today, New Years Eve, about a New Ireland. Looking forward to further such articles by Sarah Carey.

As for things that matter towards the goal of a New and United Ireland. While considering myself, a nationalist, I have absolutely no objections to an Orange Order march, down O’Connell Street on the 12th. And as I know every word of “The Protestant Boy” no problem to sing it very much out of tune, subject to at least a thousand requests.

Firstly, neither I myself or millions of residents of the Republic will be there to view such a parade. Secondly what good will it do the Orange Order? Lets face it, at the end of the day, They won that battle but lost the war for domination of the Island. And what were, lets face it, truly valid concerns about many items of concern to non-Nationalist/Republican Ulster peoples, about a United Ireland ,are no longer so rigidly set in the minds of the peoples of the current Republic.

Every since the first humans set foot on this Island, it has been a “Sword Land.* Countless Clans, Tribes and Invaders, have shed blood and wrecked havoc to support their claims to their rights in this land and it’s resources. However over time, these peoples, came to acceptance of the existence of others, of different viewpoints, etc to them. And between them, went on to built our modern society.

*Sword Land. a phrase in, Seek the Fair Land. By Walter Macken.

A topical insight, into what the English Monarchy and The English, Boxing Day Bank Holiday’s name is all about!!! What would Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, have to say to us about it?

WHEN I GET INTO A TAXI, I CAN BE SOMEWHAT ASSUARED, THAT SOME EFFORT HAS BEEN MADE TO VET THE DRIVER’S CHARACTOR. AND THIS VETTING OCCOURS EVERY 5 YEARS. I CANNOT SAY THE SAME OF MEMBERS OF THE VARIOUS RELIGIOUS ORDERS ETC. PERSONS, WHO ARE GIVEN FREE ACCESS TO MY CHILDREN, AND ARE RECIEVING PAYMENTS FROM THE STATE, WHILE DOING SO!!!

SO, CONSIDERING THEIR ROLES WITH A VERY VUNERABLE SECTION OF OUR SOCIETY; WHY IS THERE NO COMPLUSERY GARDA VETTING AND CLEARACE, EVERY 5 YEARS OF. PRISTS, BISHOPS, ARCHBISHOPS, CARDINALS ETC?

Omni Shopping Centre Taxi Rank Santry D9. All welcome?

Witnessed today, Thursday, October 27th. approx. 12:15pm. Three taxis, standing at this rank plying for hire. Just one single couple of African ethnic decent, seeking a taxi. First Taxi, standing at the rank is a white car, its driver, a tall well-built, Dublin male. Having asked the couple where they are going, and on being told, Shangan/Coultry, Ballymun. This driver declines the fare. And starts, with a big smirk on his face and roaring with laughter, to shout out loudly to the other two taxi drivers; “Anyone want a fare to Shangan/Coultry?”. Neither of the other two taxi drivers responds. This episode can of course, be viewed on the Omni Shopping Centre’s CCTV system. Should the NTA Taxi complaints section have interest in a follow up.
