The organisers of the 2022 World Cup have strongly denied allegations from the U.S. Department of Justice that bribes were paid to secure votes when the hosting rights for the tournament were awarded 12 years ago……So thats it?

How it was allowed happen is beyond me,Blatter orchestrated the whole affair and no doubt brown envelopes were plentiful especially coming from a country whose pockets are deep...very fukin deep!!
What's gonna happen all the stadia that were built....might turn stoning into a national sport!!

How it happened is simple .Every National FA has ONE vote Qatar offered more money to corrupt officials than the Brits were able to offer .The latest anty Arab shite in Professional Golf .The Saudis are offering huge prize money to men who play for money and some other players who play for money say its to much money so we dont want to play for it .Anybody remember when the Masters was going to be moved about 15 years ago because they wouldnt allow Black Players use the course .It takes time to change .Fourty years ago in Ireland you could be jailed for being gay or smoking hash you couldnt get divorced .It takes time for things to change Moral Trumpeting is not the way to go .The Kingdom of Saud and the Shiekdoms around arabia were created by Who ?The same cunts that now criticize them .

Brit sour Grapes .When the Brits lost the competition to host it they got stroppy .BBC Panorama did an Expose no other country on earth raised any issue .Again the Brits complained when there was no Porter on Sale .Brits and America were the first Countries to trade slaves .Brits were the people wanting to wear Rainbow armbands .Brits using Queers and Alcos to promote British Values .If Oil was still $10 a barrell nobody would give any of their fucks about workers rights .With $80 oil the Arabs are now the Worlds paymasters .Take a look at Britain and compare it to just 50 years Ago .When they had the second largest Film industry best music industry best TV industry best Car industry best Football leagues .Best National health system .Today Britain is a third World Country .Look at their Horse racing most of the Big races are won by Irish or Arab owned Horses .Britain wanted the World Cup for the same reason Qatar wanted it National Prestige .Its bollox BBC have ruined the vibe around this WC and RTE copy what they do .

Fans all over the world are gearing up to watch their national teams face off in the 2022 Soccer World Cup in Qatar, but according to recent press reports. much of the work to build the new stadiums, hotels, restaurants, roads and infrastructure for the tournament was done using forced and exploited labor. For nearly a decade, human rights organizations have been warning about the rampant abuse against Qatar’s migrant workforce, who make up the vast majority of the country’s population.

On Nov 9, a French construction company was charged with forced labor in Qatar related to the World Cup. As the Associated Press reports: Sherpa, a human rights org, “said it collected testimonies about the working conditions at some construction sites operated by Vinci’s subsidiary, which included working in temperatures over 45 C (113 F) with insufficient water, the withholding of passports, and lack of access to showers in accommodations.”
 
Everything about this World Cup for SPORT is wrong and now even Blatter who was behind Qatar getting it, is saying that it was a mistake…..Democracy is a sham of a system in  my book.

Dubliner warns of fake taxi scam after phone and €1,300 stolen
The 'taxi' involved in the scam had a sign making it look legitimate


November 25 2022 01:04 PM

A Dublin man has warned of a fake taxi scam after having his phone stolen and €1,300 taken from his bank accounts.

After failing to get a driver on one of the taxi apps on a Saturday night in the city, the Dubliner told RTÉ’s Liveline he decided to jump into a passing taxi.

“A taxi beeps me on the way and I thought I might as well hop in,” the man, identified only as Matthew, said.

“The driver proceeds to take me close to my destination and then claimed he didn’t know where it was, so asked to have a look at google maps on my phone.

“He then dropped it into the passenger side footwell and claimed couldn’t get it because of a bad back.

“He asked me to get out and get it, which I eventually did, and he just drove off,” Matthew added.

There was an illuminated taxi sign on the top of the car, which made it look like a real taxi.

Matthew said when he woke up the next morning money had been taken from three of his bank accounts and the passwords had been changed.


“It was an absolute nightmare. Up to about €1,300 was gone. This is an experienced scam,” he said.

He reported the theft to gardaí who told him they have had reports of similar incidents.





“It’s unfortunate that it is going on, particularly coming up to Christmas. They are preying on people who have been out socialising, had a couple of drinks and are letting their guard down,” Matthew said.

“They picked me up in a spot outside Ranelagh where they knew there were no cameras and they dropped me off in a spot where there were no lights or cameras. They really are experts,” he said.

Matthew is urging people to be careful coming up to Christmas when taking taxis home in the city.

“People need to be very careful, I know there is a shortage of taxis. I’ve learned a lesson if somebody doesn’t have their own Google Maps, you know, take a bit of warning.

“I suppose the other thing is it’s just a shame there are such a lack of available ways home at the moment, taxis and buses and things like that.

“The alternative is walking home on your own and it’s not safe for everybody. The vast majority of drivers I’ve ever come across are fantastic. It’s just unfortunate this incident has soured it a bit.”

Some of the €1,300 funds that were stolen from the bank account have since been refunded.
It's in the Indo so it must be true.

The ESB has announced a 50% price hike in their rates for electric vehicle (EV) charging.

The price increase will come into effect on December 20 for EV drivers who charge on the public network.

The new rate for pay-as-you-go customers using standard chargers will increase from €0.375 to €0.563 per kWh - a hike of 50%.

Fast chargers will increase from €0.432 to €0.647 - also a hike of 50%.

Those who use the high-power chargers will see an increase from €0.461 up to €0.682 - a hike of 48%.

This now means that owners of a new Nissan LEAF will pay somewhere from €21.96 to €26.60 for a theoretical 0-100% charge.

Those driving Ireland’s most popular EV of late, the Volkswagen iD.4, will now pay from €43.35 up to €52.51.

According to AA Ireland, these increases mean that "those charging on the High Power chargers will be paying nearly as much as an equivalent petrol or diesel car to cover the same distance."

In the last week, Irish motorists have already been hit with the possibility of toll price hikes whilst already dealing with the soaring costs of new and used vehicles and fuel prices.

AA Ireland say that "the price increases come at a time when ESB is being criticised for not improving the network sufficiently.

They believe that "the number of charging points is not increasing in line" with the "year-on-year increase in EV sales of approximately 80%."

They admit that the units are reliable but say that "queues for the chargers are becoming increasingly common."
