Ah yes the "lawyers would never bring a spurious case" defence because we're great chaps.

On an unrelated matter how are the Garda investigations into those Solicitors going?

How was the solicitor to know where those lads were getting €200k a week in cash tax free

Why would somebody bring a loser of a case?

Quote:
In her case against the Dean Hotel, lawyers for Ms Bailey list 18 particulars of alleged negligence or breach of duty including a failure to have signs or supervisors.

Neither Ms Bailey nor Fine Gael have yet commented on the case.

Culture Minister Josepha Madigan’s family firm is taking the case, although she no longer works there.

Ms Bailey's case against the Dean Hotel was mentioned on Monday in Dublin Circuit Civil Court.

It is understood the swings in question are located indoors, on the top floor of the hotel, near a bar and restaurant area.

Her lawyers claim there should have been signs or a member of staff to instruct how to use the swing safely.

They claim that patrons at the hotel are encouraged to use the swing unsupervised.

They also state there was nobody to supervise and intervene if a patron was at risk of a fall, and there was no cushioning of the area surrounding the swing.


That reads like a comedy skit.

They're trying it on, AJ. You know they are.

No cushioning? Have they ever been to a playground?

Money.

The drug pushers have to get the money laundered, and using lawyers is one of the oldest ways it has always been done, very allegedly indeed, and no names mentioned or intimated.

Non-PR UK elections are weird. Would have liked to give a second preference to the Greens. I suppose the voting for the party thing takes a lot of the decision making about individuals out of it, more focus on general policy than the local issues you get candidates focusing on in Ireland.

Voted this morning on the way into work.

Just two people voting in James's St polling office at 07:15 and I was one of them. Wonder what turn out will be like.

For EU elections:

Fitzgerald
Andrews
White
Durkan
Cuffe

in that preference. Didn't give anything to the far left or far right nutters.

Local for South West Inner went for :

Howe (FG)
Moynihan (LAB)
Pidgeon (Green)
Watters (FF)
Cummins ( SD)

Voted there in Stillorgan at around the same time, there was a good few voting and a steady enough stream coming through the door but that is the case generally to be honest.

Thought you were talking about John Bailey initially the father of the TD who is suing the hotel for falling off the swing. Not sure if Duff is referring to him or not.

Absolutely guarantees that policy is decided by a central cabal with little or no local input.

Voted Cuffe, Gannon and Andrews in Europe. Few preferences down to block out anti-vaxx racist plum like O'Doherty and Gilroy.

Locals were Greens, FF and Soc Dem.

Voted yes in the forgotten referendum.

That’s the problem with compo culture. Accident happens. Nobody’s fault really. Business makes a genuine offer of goodwill to cover medical expenses and Greedy “victim” rejects it as they can see a lotto win compo payout if they engage in this crazy PI compensation system we have in this country. I hope they find costs against her at this stage it’s just greed and it’s wrong.

couldn't vote this time round but think I would have voted similarly - challenge the right wing populist surge in Europe (in fairness we don't seem to have that big an issue here) wouldn't have voted for Green Party before but would have made an exception here maybe make "the party for the people that come home early" take note - apparently they've got from 1% to 5% on the polls and think 8% in Dublin ?

Looks like the hotel encouraged her by offering some compensation, they'd have been better off telling her where to go.

I’m loving the fact that she can’t win, even if a nut case judge rules in her favour.
She will end up donating the money to charity to try and “justify (for the sake of the principle of it/protect future users of the swing blah de blah) taking the claim.

People aren’t fools and I look forward to the parasite losing her seat.
