Labour blames the Tories for the state of the NHS. The Tories blame striking Leftist doctors. In this Punch and Judy show, neither will admit that the eye-watering waiting lists are because of lockdown, says Alex Kriel.

A new campaign group has been set up called Not in My Name urging people not to vote on July 4th. The idea is, if enough people sit on their hands, it will trigger major reform of our broken political system.

Cabhair Christmas Swim - 42 years old this year (2018)!

Hi !

It began - properly structured and organised - in 1976 ,as a ‘fundraiser with a difference’ , combined with the need to gain extra publicity for a situation which was then - as now - making world headlines . Those that sat down together in early September 1976 to tighten-up the then ‘hit-and-miss’ affair were a dedicated team who fully understood that to fail in their business would not only bring derision on them and the issue they sought to highlight , but would give their enemy a publicity coup which they would exploit to the fullest extent .
With that in mind , the team persevered - favours were called-in , guarantees were secured , provisions obtained and word dispatched to like-minded individuals in the near-locale . At the appointed time on the agreed day - 12 Noon , Christmas Day 1976 - a soon-to-be 42-years-young event was ‘born'...

The CABHAIR Christmas Day Swim is , thankfully , still going strong and will be , as mentioned , 42-years-young on December 25th next! Sponsored Swim * Christmas Day * 12 Noon * Grand Canal * 3rd Lock * Inchicore* Dublin*
Pics and a write-up re the 2017 Swim can be seen at the 'Related Link' below.

Thanks for reading,
