Topics covered include climate issues and discussion on racism and refugees.
Wheelchair users and their carers demonstrated outside the Dáil last week to keep CUISLE open. Its where the wheelchair users go on holidays, and they love it because of kind staff and that they can be together. €1.5 is needed to refurbish Cuisle, but the Minister won’t cough up. He says they can use hotels instead. Disappointing that the CEO of the Irish Wheelchair Association seemed to me, to lack a willingness to fight for the IWA members preference for Cuisle, indeed, not to have assessed their preferences properly, and to glorify hotels instead. Here’s our exchange at the Health committee today.
On the Climate Action Committee, Just Transition for Bord na Mona workers was discussed by unions representing the workers and company and government representatives. This is the exchange between Brid and Patricia King of the ICTU
The government claims it is committed to Just Transition for Bord na Móna workers. So does Tom Donnellan, new CEO of BNM. So why won’t he attend the Workplace Relations Commission to resolve outstanding issues, and why doesn’t the Minister instruct him to? I challenged him at the Climate Action Committee today.
There are few things that make me as angry as bullying. The powerful bullying the weak. Fine Gaelers blaming, and bullying, refugees. And why? to distract from their own mis-rule. Low-life. RTE news tonight had this following clip.
They failed us on housing. They failed us on health..on childcare…on every issue that matters. So who do they blame? Refugees of course!! The most unfortunate of people, made scapegoats by the morally and socially bankrupt politicians of FG. Verona Murphy is deplorable, but that Varadkar fails to stand her down, speaks volumes. Shame on them all.
topics discussed include the politicians in hot water, racism, online harrassment, and the state of the health service
The well fed, well clad, Noel Grealish TD will probably never know what its like to be hungry or cold or fearful of his life, not the way thousands of refugees do. He was leader one time of the PDs, a right-wing split from Fianna Fáil, champions of privatising everything. And now he wants people to blame migrants for what he and the likes of him did to this country. A vile man.
