Hello boys and girls, ladies and gents,
I’ve been away for a bit – finishing off a project, marking exam scripts, off on an unexpected trip to Rome where I saw the Vatican had brought in the dead body of a saint for the faithful to view. Padre Pio travelled up from the south of Italy amid security arrangements worthy of a Head of State.
60,000 pilgrims a day are expected. Lots of euros will be spent on travelling to Vatican City and Rome and then eating, drinking and sleeping there.
Comment: I can’t get my head round a marketing strategy based on corpse veneration!
Query: What’s been happening since I took my eye off the local news?
SF managed to make a phenomenal typo in their election leaflets
Comments: SF’s certainly not keeping abreast of the situation
Ooh aah up the Bra
Now we know why Republicans support Basques!!
Was it just a booby trap?
Or an attack on the peace process?
I can’t get my head round a Republican election strategy based on making mistakes with a dead Westminster MP’s name!
Meanwhile over in London,
Mr Cameron waved a piece of paper shouting
“EU reform in our time”
It was a ‘slap in the face for Britain‘ according to
Hungary and Poland were not sold on the UK deal and Ministers of ‘core’ Europe i.e the original founders of the EEC (Belgium,France,Germany, Italy, Luxembourg) planned the EU’s future at a very private, very discreet dinner party in Rome
Comments: Pity the UK thinks it still commands a defunct Empire and can bend the Continent to its will!
I can’t get my head round a political strategy based on corpse veneration !
Back in Ireland
Enda seemed optimistic about the election. He thought he’d managed to blame the continuity IRA and thus the Provisional IRA and thus SF for a murder in Dublin.
Comments: The Provisional IRA is defunct –
I can’t get my head round an electoral strategy based on a failed corpse resusitation!
