Arrest in Church Street - call for mass stalls next Saturday

31-08-2008 15:02

The Socialist Party has had a stall in Church Street at that spot for
years. On Saturday 30 August, a police van drew up and ordered us to
move. Tony Aitman refused and they arrested him, put him in the van and
charged him with wilful obstruction. They confiscated our table and
material and told us we could collect them after 5pm that day. They then
let Tony leave the van and told him he would be summonsed.

Caesar’s Vicar's Irish Govenor Have A Good Laught At The Irish And The Poles

31-08-2008 14:58


Why did the Irish reject Lisbon?

There is the small answer, the big answer and the in-between answer to this question

The small answer: The irish rejected Lisbon because the Rocco Buttigleoni, the Popes’ friend, was not given the job of EU Commissioner for Justice.

The Big Answer: The Irish rejected Lisbon because the Pope wants Europe to know that he really is Caesar’s Messiah’s Vicar on earth (I think he has given up his rank in the next world!) and that secular society, especially its Russian and Chinese form, being recalcitrant to his advices, are getting on Caesar’s nerves.

The In-between Answer: The Irish rejection of Lisbon was orchestrated to operate in tandem with the Poles unilaterally installing missiles aimed at Russia’s neck (justified by the planned agitation in Georgia) and Tibet’s Buddhist-Inspired provocation of China.

To understand how these answers fit into a single time-span that operates as a constant force in the world, one must be both a Catholic and a Pope. But laymen can get a glimpse of the Pope’s shenanigans by recalling some well-worn Papal methods of engagement. These, also, have a long-term as well as a short-term perspective.
