Seventy per cent of UK citizens in the land voted Yes to independence, they left the UK, got a government of their own, and local officials transferred their allegiance to the new state. But you can still take an express train across the UK border to the capital of the independent nation without a passport.

#Facebook thinks the far-right, pseudo-militia group #BritainFirst's posts are OK, apparently. The group's page was removed from the social media site for hate speech on Friday – only to be restored again an hour later.

In light of current revelations concerning the #Catholic #Church in #Ireland, I've been musing on the #Ulster unionist slogan "Home Rule means #Rome Rule"....
Were they necessarily completely wrong?

Justice for the buried babies

We, the undersigned, call for a full judicial investigation into the circumstances surrounding the deaths of 796 children in #Ireland, some of whose bodies may lie in a mass grave in #Tuam, Co #Galway, and for this to be part of an investigation covering all institutions of ‘care’ nationwide. 

We understand that the children died while they were in the custody of the Bon Secours Sisters between approximately 1925 and 1961. We are concerned that evidence suggests that the mortality rate for these children was significantly higher than the national rate of infant mortality at the time. And we are shocked at reliable, contemporaneous accounts that the children were malnourished and seemingly uncared-for, when the #Irish State was paying the Bon Secours to look after them. 

We request that the investigation begin at the earliest possible date and that the final report is made public, in full, when it is complete. We also request that any individual or organization which fails to co-operate fully, and in a timely fashion, with the investigation should be charged with the obstruction of justice.

Irish Minister for Justice and Equality Frances Fitzgerald can shed light onto the Tuam childrens' mass grave scandal -- let's urge her to act fast and call for a full investigation. Sign the petition and tell others about it!

A man walking home after being discharged from hospital found himself chased by a police helicopter, because they thought he was an escaped patient from a psychiatric hospital.

Cannabis plants, some as large as three foot high, have been found growing alongside the Tower of London and along the South Bank . #Feed420 activists have been scattering hemp seeds across the capital to provoke the government into changing cannabis laws for those using it for medicinal purposes.
