Gay pride march held in Dublin
By :GENEVIEVE CARBERY
The city centre of Dublin was filled with colour, noise, music whistles and chants yesterday afternoon as thousands marched in this year’s gay pride march.
The parade was led by UCD academic Ailbhe Smyth and filled the whole length of O’Connell Street before ending at Dublin council city offices for music and speeches.
“Pride and Prejudice” was the main theme with many dressed in wedding gowns and tuxes. Crowds chanted: “What do we want? Marriage. When do we want it? Now.” Katherine Zappone and Ann Louise Gilligan marched in the dresses they wore for their Canadian wedding in 2003.
Campaign against cutbacks in Crumlins children’s Hospital
With the government able to find billions to bail out fraudulent Banks and crafty developers
There is no money left for children’s health care
So they say!
The government can give 310 million to the 10 wealthiest individuals in the country (Anglo Irish Bank golden circle of 10) when NAMA is set up this Golden circle will get a refund from the tax payers 301 million Euros
With this money a brand new hospital could be built!
This is criminal.
The same government have no problem in cutting critical medical services for children!
To-day it’s my children to-morrow it could be yours!
Please help to reverse these cuts and call your TD to-day!
Thank you for your support.
Michael Jackson is Innocent
The chandlers Father & Son
According to the link above,and if it is true!
This little shit has now come out and said that he lied when he made his sexual molestation charges against Michael Jackson.
This is astonishing news!
Chandler and his immediate family reportedly received $25 million (GBP11.8 million) in an out-of-court settlement back in 1993 when the then 13-year-old Jordy alleged he had been molested by Jackson.
Quotes from Jordan Chandler then!
” I never meant to lie and destroy Michael Jackson but my father made me to tell only lies. Now I can’t tell Michael how much I’m sorry and if he will forgive me
“If I go through with this, I win big-time. There’s no way I lose. I will get everything I want and they will be destroyed forever…
” Now for the first time I can’t bear to lie anymore. Michael Jackson didn’t do anything to me; all was my father lies to escape from being poor.”
Under the influence of a controversial father (Jordan Chandler) is supposed to have told his son to say Jackson had touched his penis.
Jordan Chandler also told a psychiatrist and later police that he and Jackson had engaged in acts of kissing; masturbation and oral sex, as well as giving a detailed description of what he alleged were the singer’s genitals.
How could you make such allegations against an incessant person?
My own son is 13 years old now and I can clearly state that he knows what is right and wrong since he was about 5 years
Chandler is now saying he was told by his greedy father to say that Jackson had molested him in order to get $25 million
If this is true then you are both guilty of murder !
Apart from the fact that is extortion, he and his father and any other persons on the take should now be put on trial for extortion and Murder.
Needleless to say all the money should be taken back and any other assets from books film rights etc should be taken from these two.
I am however surprised that I haven’t heard anything on the Irish airwaves about this latest twist in this sorry affair
One thing I know for certain, there are, and will be no winners
The world has lost a brilliant musician
MJ was up there with Mozart & Beethoven
Ireland’s NTMA could fund Anglo recapitalisation
Reuters, Friday June 26 2009
DUBLIN, June 26 (Reuters) – Ireland’s debt management agency said on Friday it could fund the 4 billion euros ($5.57 billion) recapitalisation of nationalised Anglo Irish Bank and use any capital raised beyond it’s 2009 bond target to pre-fund for 2010.
“It (beyond target funds) could either be put towards next year or it could go towards the funding of the 4 billion euros recapitalization of Anglo Irish Bank,” Oliver Whelan, the National Treasury Management Agency’s (NTMA) director of funding and debt management told Reuters in an interview.
“We’re comfortable about that because we have cash balances of in excess of 20 billion euros in the exchequer balance account. We could fund, if we had to, the recapitalisation of Anglo Irish Bank this year by running down those cash balances by 2 or 3 billion.”
Through a combination of successful H1 auctions and syndicated bonds, Ireland has raised 20.7 billion of the 25 billion it plans to borrow this year to finance a budget deficit forecast to exceed 10 percent of gross domestic product.
The NTMA plans to raise around 5 billion to 6 billion euros from five bond auctions between July and November, some of which could fund the 4 billion euros the government pledged to inject into Anglo, the troubled lender it took over in January.

This is exactly the type of tripe I was talking about on a previous article .These people are engaged in the hard sell of the concept of NAMA remember !
There is a lot riding on this new state run Toxic Bank.
A lot of people are hoping to make big bucks out of this entity.
It is going to make all the previous tribunals the state has ever had look like a picnic
All of the new directors will be appointed by the state so jobs for the boys at a massive scale
I suspect that NAMA will need 4000 to 5000 staff and they won’t be paid peanuts neither!
We are going to end up having so called financial experts come from all over the place and these are the self same Gob***** that probably have being thrown out of their last jobs as a result of their incompetence
The Irish financial institutions will be looking after their own no need to worry about that!
We the people are going to get screwed and that is a fact!
Help stop this monstrous betrayal and take action get organized now.
