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?
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.
Whatever, about budgets, the economy, the financial markets, robbing the poor to feed the rich, etc.
One has to re-evaluate the strength of character, of the Lady Prime Minister, of The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and Territories. Liz Truss. Who, barely a wet week, in the job; Has on top of defending all the afore mentioned above, has, her King, Charles 111, stepping back from attending, The COP27 Climate Summit! A subject dear to his heart and ideals, after being “ADVISED” by the said Lady Prime Minister, Liz Truss, not to attend!!
President Biden, states, loudly, that if China invades Taiwan, The United States of America (and its territories), Will not hesitate to send American military personnel to physically combat the Chinese military on the soil of Taiwan.
Note that this is at the same time, while stating, American military personnel will not be sent to physically fight the Russian invasion of Ukraine, on Ukraine soil! Now, one asks, looking at American military behaviour in Korea, Vietnam, etc. In conjunction with President Biden’s statement on American actions in the event of any Chinese invasion of Taiwan. What exactly makes the defending of “Asian Democracy” so much more important than the defending of “European Democracy” so much so, as to involve the loss of American lives in Asia, yet again?
Tara Smith, you might live or work in North Dublin Area, and use the M50 frequently. One is just letting you know Your Vehicle’s address registration is totally incorrect.
Your communications from the eFlow, M50 Toll accounts, notifying you of your toll charges and late payment fines, are being sent to another address. And are being returned unopened and marked “No such person exists at this address!”.
The purpose of this friendly advisory is to make you aware, Tara, that at some point in time, if you do not resolve this matter at your earliest convenience; you are likely to find yourself, with one massive bill from the eFlow Toll company. In both toll charges and late payment fees. Which one is sure, you would wish to avoid.
So, any ladies named, Tara Smith, if you have been using the M50 toll, perhaps you should check your car Logbook, and see if the address there, is your correct address. And rectify these matters.
Apologies to all ladies named Mary Smith, for the typo in the 1st posting!
As any historian will tell you, the Plantagenet Monarchs, were a very interesting bunch of people, much given to creating death. havoc and misery to suit their own ends, in many different countries.
But would you also believe the first Plantagenet, Count Geoffery of Anjou, was an early member of the Green Party? Indeed, Geoffery got the name, Plantagenet, from his habit of wearing a spring of broom (the plant genista) in his bonnet, with which to plant brooms so as to improve his hunting cover.
So, you bought into the arguments of the Greens and the Car Showroom Salesperson; You bought a fully electric and installed a domestic plug-in charger.
Now, you are at mercy of the energy companies as they increase their charges. Your next-door neighbour, still using a petrol fuel car. Can at every top-up go to the cheapest service station currently available. Feeling Stung?
In respect of Minister Stephen Donnelly’s failure to register his property interests and his seeking of a tax exemption for accidental landlords; Of which he declares himself to be such! Has the Minister declared the income from his non-registered properties to the Revenue?
