This is Stephen Houston. He thinks that it’s very funny that my Dad lost a limb when he was killed by PIRA. Stephen works for Montupet

‘Up sprang the Ulstermen and without forming waves adopted by other divisions they rushed the German front line. By a combination of sensible tactics and Irish dash the prize that eluded so many, the capture of a section of German front line had been accomplished’ #Somme

Good news! The 5th circuit blocked the Biden Administration's vax mandate for federal workers pending full en banc hearing. The covid vax mandates has fueled generalized vaccine skepticism and is a black mark on public health. reuters.com/world/us/us-appe…

The CDC was caught using highly misleading data to justify COVID shots for kids. When I contacted one of the researchers responsible, she didn't answer my questions, but said she was surprised I care about truth since I work for Tucker Carlson (I don't) dailycaller.com/2022/06/27/c…

IRA bomb victims sue Gerry Adams mailplus.co.uk/edition/news/… @StephenNolan - why is this not all over BBC NI - I hear there is a high level editorial block on it - why might that be - who is trying to hide this story?

Bishop Noel Treanor scoured secret diocesan archives to find scraps of information for the Ballymurphy families - will he do the same for information about the IRA & Gerry Adams or don't IRA victims matter as much? @downandconnor irishpeaceprocess.blog/2020/…

My daughters never got the chance to see or know their grandad due to him being cut down in our yard by the deranged actions of a Provo 'volunteer'. The PIRA were just sectarian thugs who masqueraded as an 'army'. The terminology "patriot dead" really is revisionism at its worst.

Everywhere you look in education, things are not as they seem.  School inspectors do not require lesson plans.  Where is the evidence that the teacher can PLAN a single lesson, let alone a teaching programme?  Were parents consulted about this? @Ofstednews @Education_NI
The issue of whether Google's large language model is sentient is presumably nothing more than a marketing device.  Curiously, it has been given traction by, for example, the @BBCWorld.  The claim has no foundation. invidious.fdn.fr/iBouACLc-hw
The cost of textbooks to the Education Authority now seems to be less than 2%. This may help to explain what is wrong with the bizarre education system developed around the Belfast Agreement. Gavin Boyd et al escaped accountability entirely.

There should be no grandstanding by politicians this morning. The stark message from the electorate is that they have dealt a blow to Privilege and their evil twin Entitlement and will be ready for any future Prime Minister regardless of party affiliation. @BBCBreakfast

I walked past several guys laying paving on a driveway in about 28 degree direct sun. They’ve been on it for a week, including through the heat wave last Friday. I suspect they’d swap work environments with academics.

Re: today's Talkback, has no one read Kant?  The attached appears on p.33 of Onora O'Neill's Reith Lectures.  Pace Laura Lundy, duties are prior to rights. #BBCtalkback @williamcrawley @bbcradioulster
Para 13.4 of the Watt Inquiry highlights the unique circumstances that perpetuates an accountability system which fails the public. While the public purse may 'compensate' Watt's victims, it will also pay for the salaries/ pension pots of professionals who skate accountability.

An article in a British newspaper claimed that Prime Minister Boris Johnson, when he was the foreign secretary in 2018, proposed appointing his mistress at the time, Carrie Symonds, as his chief of staff. Then the article vanished abruptly. nyti.ms/3OtIvEO

What are the chances that the rejected Ulster Unionist candidate Naomi McBurney, champion for improved school uniform allowances, will direct parents towards the Competition & Markets Authority to complain? CMA have staff in Belfast to investigate - call them @StephenNolan
