    Default Irish Flags at half mast to mourn death of Saudi King



    State flags at half mast after death of Saudi king - RTÉ News

    If one country could be described as the source of all evil in the world, Saudi Arabia would be a contender. They use their massive wealth to fund terrorism, racism, hatred, ignorance, intolerance, ...

    Democratic Ireland mourns the passing of the absolute monarchy of a theocracy. Because we want their money.

    Our flag is now just like a whores knickers - it drops halfway down if there's money involved.

    I was literally about to make a thread on this.

    We should not be following the UK in lowering our flag for a despotic regime which sponsers both terrorism and promotes beheadings.

    Some Republic we are.

    Flanagan, already prone to serial gaffes, is now to be found standing over another massive blunder of judgement.

    This tweet from Ruth Davidson the Scottish Tory leader sums it up nicely.

    Flying flags at half mast on gov buildings for the death of Saudi king is a steaming pile of nonsense. That is all.

    A national embarrassment.

    This is incredible.

    Just wondering....but did the national flag fly at half mast for the passing of Hugo Chavez ?

    He made some massive blunders, and bought votes like Bertie. But he was the leader of his country.

    Disgusting. The flag of Ireland should only be flown at half mast for deceased Taoisigh, Presidents and Ministers. And maybe the pope.

    It's more of a dictatorship/fruitcake arrangement.

    But King Ab did beat ISIS at one thing.... he beheaded more people.
