I think it was in 2011 when the now discredited Fine Gael/Labour coalition government of Ireland in trying to raise some much needed capital decided to levy a Household Charge of €100 on all properties in Ireland. They decided to let the villainous bankers, developers and politicians get off scot […]

Hunger Striking To History
Well yesterday Dublin witnessed what could only be classed as a spontaneous reaction to the ridiculous judge Paul Gilmartin’s sentencing of the Dublin Five to prison for coming within 20 metres of a water meter installer. 10,000 or so locals from the Dublin area arose, put on their boots and […]
Water, Water Everywhere But Not A Drop……..
With the jailing of five water protesters yesterday in the High Court in Dublin by the idiot judge Paul Gilligan for contempt of a court order forbidding anybody to step into a 20 metre no-go zone round meter installers, it emphasised the governments absolute terror at the situation it has […]
Well It Never Rains But It Pours For Irish Water.
Well it never rains but it pours for Irish Water. Ireland is blessed with having more water than anywhere else in Europe but by the time Irish Water gets their hands on it they proceed to lose over half of it. The Independent reports that it loses 680 million litres […]

Irish Water, Fine Gael, Labour = Total Inadequacy
Well it was on March 10th this year when I started my protest against the Coalition’s new tax construct, Irish Water. It was then I parked my trusty old Land Cruiser over my stop cock and told GMC/Sierra, the contractor appointed by Irish Water to go from whence they came. […]
The People’s Voice Was Heard.
It was the morning of the 1st November 2014, my youngest son’s 21st birthday, but he was far away trying to earn his corn on some foreign field. I had just come back from South Africa, where for three weeks I and four friends had been following in the footsteps […]
Timothy Rustige As Spunky As Ever
I am in close contact with Timothy Rustige, the other man from Cheshire locked up in a Scottish dungeon for allegedly telling Dame Angelo Dundee Cake or her pseudonym Dame Elish Angiolini that she was only a wanker. Despite the privations of prison Timothy is in great form but he […]
Smart Meters, A Step Too Far – Part 5
Well it is the start of Day 18, I think. Any way it is 6th April 2014 and the situation outside is looking a little drab. The bright shiny new barriers the meter men put up on instruction from Sierra have lost their lustre and every day somebody or something […]
