Healy Eames wants games to stop after 2 hours


I believe it is not unreasonable to demand some class of a microchip to be installed that shuts the game down after two hours”

With a hat-tip to BreakingNews.ie we learned today that Galway Senator Freely Memes Senator Fidelma Healy Eames previously pledged to write to the National Consumer Association in 2011 to have chips fitted to gaming consoles so they will shut down after two hours.

Apart from the health point of view, thousands of our children, teens and even young married men are spending endless hours on these machines. Just ask parents how difficult it is.”

Having compared the ill effects of playing video games to those of smoking she pledged to get manufacturers to fit devices which would automatically shut down the consoles and then keep them off for some time. Onwards to the dystopian tomorrow where the non video gaming Irish master race will be free to frape and sext as much as they want.

What a loo-laa. Can you imagine the craic in the National Consumer Association when they got the young intern to ring up Sony and Microsoft and ask them to ‘stick a chip in there that we can get the young fella off the couch’

The Senator, who is going on another ‘fact-finding mission’ to the USA on the tab  of some shadowy American pro-life fundamentalist group despite political contributions to the seanad being capped, has been all over the news since being given a Senate seat. Following three failed general election campaign the Labour Panel consisting of the Irish Conference of Professional and Service Associations & the Irish Congress of Trade Unions gave her a seat in the Seanad on a salary of €65,621 BEFORE expenses.

Panti Bliss recalls Fidelma’s wonderful contribtuion to the control of social media debate.

Fidelma: The Frape Tape


Oh.

Dear.

Fine Gael Senator Fidelma Healy Eames at the Oireachtas hearing on social media. What a twat this woman is, must be rated number one in the hypocrisy stakes

Fidelma Healy Eames: “There is absolutely responsibility on parents and educators, but they cannot keep up with it. Take, for example, the form called ‘fraping’, where you’re raped on Facebook. Where a youngster has their status open and another person puts a message on there, as if they wrote it. And that message could be, for example, sexual. It goes out into the world as if they said it. This type of thing has to stop. There has to be some controls put in place here.

What about sexting? Where they are texting sexual images. Now I heard recently that that is a criminal offence. Can you verify that, Minister (Pat Rabbitte)? I also heard recently that no matter what you do on the internet, you leave a digital footprint and even if those images are erased, that they can be, or images, or text messages, is it true that they can be, em, found again? I want to ask you that question. Because everybody needs to work together here: parents, teachers, the youngsters.

And I believe, until we have a system minister, similar to what we have with the Press Ombudsman, for the print media and the broadcast media, we need some type of set of guidelines. We need some type of report, place to report it to. We do need to know that there’s sanctions there. I believe that, until we have that, the public aren’t going to be adequately educated or protected. And, minister, would you see it within your remit, minister, your responsibility, to ensure that there’s a set of guidelines there for people who have been hurt and damaged by social media. I am particularly thinking of our youngsters.

And somebody else referred to counsellors in schools. Well may I now say this to you, minister. I am quite familiar with counsellors, who are very, very busy because they’re trying to work with the youngsters that have been hurt as a result of abusive social media. So I absolutely take the good on board but while, no, I really want to say this, while the good is happening, around freedom…”

Chairman: ”I know..but it’s for questions, now. We’re on very limited time.”

Healy Eames: “I’m finishing on this. We need to ensure that the abuse isn’t greater than the good, in the terms of the damage. And my final question, minister, is can we have a situation here where an identity, the identity of every user is registered with an IP address in this country? I am familiar with where IPs were registered in the United States and they couldn’t be tracked down. So thank you (chairman) for that opportunity.”

Phil Hogan’s and His Big Mouth


 

Phil Hogan, the Environment Minister, has branded the Sunday Independent and another newspaper as “knackers” and threatened to “put manners” on them for publishing pictures of himself and his now former press secretary in Doha on Budget day.

Last Thursday, Mr Hogan accused the  Indo of engaging in a “disgraceful game” and threatened: “We will put manners on you.” Mr Hogan was reacting to coverage of himself in recent months.

Rich considering The cheapest room in the hotel is 605 euro which is an outrage when he is standing over cuts to the blind and disabled.

When I saw the picture at first glance I thought it was Fidelma Healy Eames and said Oh Jesus not her again

The 10-strong Irish party that attended included Hogan’s press secretary, Yvonne Hyland, the woman pictured with him on the front page.

His little finger is definitely on the rump area.- Oh Dear Maybe they’re really good friends?

Well he is doing no worse that Bertie, Biffo and co.

But I recall Mr Hogan was a very strong opponent of cronyism when Fianna Fail were in power.

Amazing they way people change their mind when they get power,

Hogan could cross over to FF and they would be at home in there lot

 

Yvonne Hyland was a former P.R person for F.G before she became press secretary to big mouth Hogan. Was she hired because of he skills and suitability for the job or was she hired for other reasons?  I bet her interview was a real tough one. A lady on 83k a year whose job was to insure no bad PR and no unwanted photos!!!  A lady of amazing abality

 

Money well spent. I doubt it

The woman that big Phil was pictured cosying up to in Qatar has since left her position.

Ahhh.

What happened there…. they seemed to be getting on quite well.

Fidelma Healy Eames: ‘They are making out like I am totally materialistic, that I’m on a gravy train’


Senator Healy Eames the Gravy Train Specialist

The Gravy Train

Senator Fidelma Healy Eames and her husband are enjoying a luxury holiday in Kenya this weekend after they were flown out to Africa by a state-funded agency.
The bullshit and arrogance from the insufferable one is hilarious.
She requested that her husband Michael should be brought on the initial trip to Rwanda for her safety, and because she said she would be lonely without him.
“It’s a strange culture, and I wouldn’t have had the confidence to go on my own,”
Ms Healy Eames described the work load on the Rwandan trip, as very hard work. You have to do two-and-a-half to three weeks’ work within one week. We start at 8 in the morning and don’t finish until 5 or 6. That’s a lot more work than a day’s work at home.”
The maths suggest she did one weeks work and one suspects she has no concept what work is all about.
‘The general public are making out like I am totally materialistic, that I’m on a gravy train’ “It’s like a witch hunt
People are trying to demonize me and that “you” the commoners have an element of misplaced anger. Trying to find someone to blame — it’s petty its daftness gone mad.
Believe me I am in politics for substance.” Yes, insufferable one we understand you’re liking for Bisto.
