Queen’s Christmas betrayal of Jubilee Workfare forced-labourers

29 Dec

Vox Political

Whoever wrote the Queen’s Christmas message this year should be hung as a traitor for making her appear to be another uncaring exploiter – like her current government.

Confused? Allow me to explain. The message might seem to be full of praise for the UK’s efforts to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee year – and it was – but it also contained this passage, referring to the Olympics and the Jubilee event on the Thames:

“The success of these great festivals depended to an enormous degree upon the dedication and effort of an army of volunteers. Those public-spirited people came forward in the great tradition of all those who devote themselves to keeping others safe, supported and comforted.”

In the case of the Olympics, her words might well ring true – people did come forward freely to take part in that great sporting event.

Archbishop Brady’s Conscience

29 Dec

I really cannot understand how Archbishop Brady & his fellow Archbishops have the gall to lecture the Irish people, and, more importantly, seek to exert blatant political influence on our elected representatives on the X-case legislation issue.

Given that these self-same gentlemen were actively involved in the cover -up of sexual abuse of hundreds of children by their fellow priests. Brady himself was responsible for the swearing to secrecy of a child (and his family) who was abused. Brady’s conscience didn’t seem to prick him much back then.

Furthermore these self-same Princes of the Church were part of the organisation which had ‘backroom’, off the record talks with An Taoiseach Bertie Ahern to limit the financial exposure of the Catholic Church to compensation claims by those abused. Resulting in the Irish taxpayers picking up by far the largest portion of the tab. Their conscience doesn’t seem to have bothered them over this.

Most of the Religious orders involved have so far failed to meet their financial obligations in this regard meaning that the victims are still waiting to receive their recompense from the organisation which caused them to suffer. Again Brady’s conscience doesn’t seem to be bothering him over this disgraceful behaviour.

These ‘gentlemen’, by their actions & inactions have, long ago, forfeited any right to lecture anyone on issues of conscience. They are a disgrace to their Church & their country.
