My favourite humorist Santham Sanghera writes a column in The Times of London in many Friday and Saturday editions and writes a Twitter account.

His choice of false economies in the May 26 Times includes potentially catastrophic ones: pet insurance (presumably because pet owners splash out enormous sums on expensive veterinary medicine), nappies, dentistry, psychotherapists,condoms, and more troubling, cheap criminal barristers and cheap hitmen.

I spend many a Sunday in the Sean McDermott St Magdalene Convent visiting my aunt the Nun back in the sixties\seventies.., my aunt, a nun, ran a tuck shop for the girls and distributed the money from the proceeds of their embroidery which was sold in Arnotts.. I remember Dickie Rock performing a concert there..

The nuns were just doing the dirty work for catholic Ireland at the time .. who else would have taken care of pregnant young women then?

how is that one going to be squared.

legacy problems with people writing non biological parents names on birth certs.

new problem because people want to write the names of non biological parents on the birth cert.

The Passport office have enough to be dealing with with the brexit.
