However, it may prove to be only a stay of execution. As I write, a constitutional crisis has erupted in Italy after its President – who normally fulfils only a ceremonial role – refused to allow the prospective new coalition government to appoint Paolo Savona as finance minister. Superficially, this is a ridiculous decision: Savona is a distinguished 81-year-old economist who has worked at

Zappone Repeatedly Misled Oireachtas - Lied About U.N. Special Rapporteur

Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Katherine Zappone has lied repeatedly --including to the Oireachtas-- about her intent to invite U.N. Special Raporteur, Pablo de Greiff to Ireland to provide international human rights oversight of the Government's response to issues around the Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby homes.  The Big Lie began on 1st June, 2017 when Dr de Greiff's proposed visit to Ireland was  first mentioned  by Minister Zappone -who cited his " extensive experience and insights which I believe will help me as a Minister ". The deception deepened on 12 December 2017 when the Seanad was told that the Government had formally decided to invite the UN Special Rapporteur.  "I will work with my colleague, the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, to arrange this invitation ," said the Minister.  Full steam ahead then, eh? It sure seemed like it, because by 13th February,  Zappone told the Dáil that  " Arra

"Las Vegas mass shooting suspect, Stephen Paddock did not die until noon on the day following the attack." That's a startling claim , but it's seemingly founded on actual autopsy documents. Don't be misled. Here's the cherry-picked part of the full report: It's obvious that 1200 hours on the 2nd of October could easily mean midnight of the night before. Admittedly, 1200 hours could also indicate noon of the following day. Which of those two did the report mean to say? Well, the very next page puts paid to any idea that Paddock had only passed away a few hours before his body arrived to be stored for autopsy four days later on the 6th October . The coroner records that when the autopsy examination commences, Paddock's refrigerated body has rigor mortis which is beginning to fade. Had Paddock been deceased only since noon, the speedy refrigeration of his body would have significantly slowed the rigor mortis cycle, and it's u
