I know there are other threads on the death of Castro, but I think the decision of the first citizen of Dublin to shame us by opening a Book of Condolences is worthy of separate discussion.

Well, I shall be at the Mansion House tomorrow. With my pen. Or perhaps a thick marker :)

Completely understandable. I noticed that the same people wallowing in tears over the election of Donald Trump are the same one's fawning over Castro.

Castro may have killed and imprisoned thousands but he never insulted Rosie O'Donnel like Trump.

A quote from none other than Fidel Castro;
"I would not vote for the mayor. It's not just because he didn't invite me to dinner, but because on my way into town from the airport there were such enormous potholes."

Let the Mayor without potholes be the first one to cast the stone.

A Book of Condolences was opened for terrorist murderer
Yasser Arafat when he died.

Shameless Leftist/Shinner mentality, with added selective
amnesia - has rendered the custom a complete joke at this
stage - and beyond parody.

Eamonn De Valera signed the book of condolences for Adolf Hitler in 1945.

The Irish president would like Irish people to behave in the same manner toward Cuba after the death of the mass murder: Fidel Casto.

You're hardly comparing the Lord Mayor of Dublin to Eamonn Devalera? Dev allowed the law to be changed to legally execute George Plant with a firing squad. Who has the Lord Mayor executed lately?

It is just around the corner from where I work so it is not an inconvenience!


In defacing the book of condolences I shall be marking my solidarity with Cubans who deface ballot papers in their "elections" for candidates for one party.

You on other hand, like the other imbeciles, chose to regard scum like Castro as a hero...

Fidel Castro was not just a mass murderer but was also seriously prepared to unleash nuclear war on the world and destroy it.

The truly vile Irish President Mr Higgins and the Lord Mayor of Dublin now offer praise to Mr Castros evil and immoral life.


Eamonn De Valera offered condolences to the german people on the death of Adolf Hitler.


These actions of the two Irish presidents and the Dublin Lord Mayor are all on a par in a sense.

Makes you think the Ireland we would live in if that vile little dwarf had any real executive powers.

So Cuba was al fine and dandy so until Fidel coned all the natives into letting him run the place? The only nation to use nuclear weapons as far as I recall is the one that has elected democratically a demagogue. His crime seems to be that he wasn't clubable like Papa Doc. Fair enough.
But if his crime was also that he wasn't a democrat, why is it a crime at all when you see the whackjobs that got in to the White House4 weeks ago?

Only communists who dont like free movement of people should sign it.

Hypocritical for anybody else to do so.

No he didn't, there was no such book. However he did visit the German Ambassador Edouard Hempel, to express his condolences. The story goes that Hempel was utterly nonplussed by this, as he wasn't especially upset about Hitler's death himself.

To be honest you have to wonder do many socialists yearn for a totalitarian communist state in each country.
