We should expel the Papal Nuncio, and withdraw our ambassador from the Vatican.

Apparently, the Vatican has refused to cooperate with the commission into child abuse. In other words, the Vatican, a sovereign state, has refused to cooperate with the investigation into a criminal conspiracy against children in this country.

Fair enough. Let’s make our anger heard. Expel the Papal Nuncio, and withdraw our ambassador from the Vatican. It’s only symbolic, I accept, but if we are willing to not have diplomatic relations with Taiwan, a free democracy, then we can certainly break off diplomatic relations with a state that, at its worst, actually shields pedophiles.

Contact your government TDs here and let them know your feelings. And remember, email your local TDs individually, and put your home address on the email. If they get a round robin they’ll ignore it. But they will pay it far more attention if they think it will affect your preference towards them personally at the next election.

I’m afraid the train may have left. The Vatican, in it’s current manifestation, will not bow to little old Ireland on the subject od child abuse. Even an easy topic such as women priests is verboten. As for our TDs? Email away. It should be done I agree. This country must wake up and stop voting for idiots just because they have the most attractive package for one’s paypacket.
And no. the opposition is shite too. But use the vote. Shake the fools up.
I’m off for a little stiffener. Cheers

This would be a great idea. It’s a shame the government wouldn’t have the cojones to send such a message to the Vatican (and the rest of the world). If there was a public outcry for it however…

I am off to set up a facebook group and write letters to Madam. That should do the trick! :-)
