    It sure is.
    https://www.independent.ie/lifestyle...-26843542.html Now there a few eye opening ‘facts’ about Varadkar. He initially took up Law in university. But somehow he was ‘awarded extra points’ and he changed to medicine. (that’s sounds a bit odd actually - how come he didn’t have the points prior to starting in university?)
    He subsequently failed two medical exams. Kinda like his failures in various ministerships.
    And this quote “I don't want to be one of those hand-wringing politicians who talks a lot, but says nothing,"

    By Conall Ó Fátharta




    Tuam Home Survivors Network chairman Peter Mulryan, whose sister is recorded as having died in Tuam, has written to the Taoiseach, the attorney general, and the coroner for north Galway to express frustration at the delays and calling for an inquest to be opened immediately.




    In letters to the coroner for north Galway sent in June and July, Mr Mulryan calls on the office to “begin the formal process of convening an inquest into the deaths of the Tuam children, without further delay”. He also hits out at the fact that such an inquest has not been ordered before now, labelling the delay “inexcusable”.



    Attorney General Seamus Woulfe has been formally put on Notice by Tuam Home Survivors Network ~




    In his letter to the attorney general [Chairman] Mr Mulryan states that if the coroner for north Galway does not convene an inquest, another coroner must be appointed. To date, no other excavation work has been carried out at any other site other than Tuam despite the HSE confirming in 2012 that there had been a higher infant death rate in Bessborough in Cork.



    Refer to the Coroners Act, 1962
    Inquest on order of Attorney General, Section 24

    Coroners Act, 1962, Section 24




    Senior Investigative Journalist Conall Ó Fátharta Continues...



    A death register for this [Bessborough, Cork] institution maintained by the Sisters of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary has been held by the HSE (and now Tusla) since 2011 and records that 478 infants died in the home between 1934 and 1953 — a higher infant death rate than recorded in Tuam.



    [NB: The Irish Examiner's Investigation (2015) revealed HSE informed Department of Health and DCYA about serious concerns regarding high infant mortality rates at Tuam and Bessborough in 2012]

    So much wrong with that.

    All workers dont rent.
    Rent is only one "outlay" for some.
    Rent increases have slowed dramatically
    Inflation is < .5% pa

    We now have Central Bank mortgage rules.

    That is a positive.

    Do you want to go back to
    100% mortgages
    40 year mortgage terms
    Multiples of 10 times income
    Interest only mortgages
    etc..

    Taoiseach defends appointment at Deptartment of Justice without public competition


    The Taoiseach has defended the Government's decision to appoint a new secretary general to head up the Department of Justice without a public competition.

    Aidan O'Driscoll moves to the role from his post as top civil servant in the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine.

    He will be tasked with implementing a major restructuring of the department, which has been the subject of several controversies and resignations in recent years.

    In the Dáil the Independents4Change TD, Tommy Broughan, asked why the appointment was made without a public competition.

    Leo Varadkar said there is no requirement for all Secretary General positions to be open to public competition.

    Maybe the blueshirts can have them interned, or brought to the showers...
    I'm sure there'd be a few quid in it for their Maltese owner.
