Forget about O Gorman, lets have the referendum as soon as possible to get rid of it or not,
Yes, or no, no more complications,Time for the electorate decide, nobody should be afraid of that.

LOL I see Mercurial's suggestion that humanity should be ruled by benevolent aliens seems to have quite a few takers - but unfortunately we're not. The UN is made up of and run by humans from all the member countries, whatever their failings. The point is that countries signed up freely and are morally bound to try to improve their own individual weaknesses.

Except Ireland which is perfect in every way, clearly :)

He's lost the plot - time for AI to get rid of him before he does irreparable damage to the organisation.
Spot on.

He has of course an adoring media.
Maybe I'm too cynical but perhaps the reason for those RTE Radio 1 "idents" on SSM result in Dublin Castle which have been run on Radio 1 over the past week or so are a favour to O'Gorman?

Don't know why 0'Gorman has not raised the matter of Co. Clare with Mr. Banksu Moon of the UN. Not even one ssm has taken place there since it was legalised.

Skyrocket claimed that the UN Human Rights Committee is headed by Saudi Arabia....
Of no consequence, it's the Council that matters on the broader human rights agenda. The committee is just a bunch of largely unaccountable members with a very limited mandate and no obvious methodology for prioritizing issues. Best ignored.

Not to mention having Roscommon declared a rogue county.

The same O'Gorman who hasn't a squeak out of him about oligarchs trying to silence the media in Ireland. You know, the sort of thing that Amnesty International was established to fight for.

Gay marriage and abortion - the only two things Shamnasty have campaigned for since O'Gorman got the CEO position. O'Gorman doesn't give a toss about prisoners of conscience. He only cares about advancing the liberal agenda.
hey, who cares about internment torture and exectutions when theres babies to be killed !

cause ya know, THATS a human right apparently.

does anyone in that kip actually remember what it was set up for anymore?

Not impressed with Amnesty jumping on Bandwagon over abortion. The quelling of free speech in Ireland with media concentration and internationally would be more his scene. The man is a failed politician and still hankers after that obviously.

You would imagine he would speak out against e.g. extraordinary rendition (i.e. kidnapping!) and the West's programs of torturing human beings. You know, little things like that!:rolleyes:

But oh no, any country that resists abortion on demand is on a par with terrorists. You couldn't make it up!

He must be mentally unbalanced.

Colm O'Gorman was a former candidate for the PDs. He loves powerful billionaires. It's rural people who are pro-life that he has a problem with. O'Gorman believes his job is to force D4 liberal values upon the great unwashed.

Denis O'Brien was previously a big backer of Amnesty but now directs a large chunk of his dosh to his Frontline human rights charity, headed by long-term Amnesty International activist Mary Lawlor.
O'Gorman's decision to bring in Sean Fitzpatrick as his guest to the Amnesty Christmas 2009 annual corporate lunch at the Shelbourne Hotel and seat him at the top table did little to boost income from the suits.
