‘Dublin and Brussels have grown closer during the past few months with Brexit negotiations siding the Republic of Ireland against their nearest neighbour.

But this week a group of Irish MEPs have warned Brussels not to expect unquestioning loyalty from Dublin – especially on the subject of security.

The warning was issued in a joint report by MEPs from Fine Gael, Ireland’s ruling government party, called ‘Ireland and the EU: Defending Our Common European Home’.

And what could possibly go wrong Sweden?

Irish Govt ‘Paid Press’ to Promote Plan to Grow Population by One Million With Mass Migration:

The Irish government has been slammed for paying journalists to write good news stories about Project Ireland 2040.

Unveiled by the government last week with a commitment to spend €116 billion, the document outlines plans to boost the Irish nation’s 4.7 million population by another million using mass migration.

The government’s strategic communications unit paid for sponsored “news pieces” to appear in national and regional newspapers promoting Ireland 2040, which “could not include negative or critical content”, The Times reported on Friday.

Irish parliament to debate bill proposing jail time for spreading fake news – #FakeNews

Irish parliament to debate bill proposing jail time for spreading fake news:

An Irish politician has proposed new laws that will see the spreading of fake news, and the use of bots to influence political debate, punished by up to five years in jail.

The proposals will be brought before the Dail (Irish Parliament) on Wednesday by Fianna Fail TD (MP) James Lawless. Contained within the bill are a number of restrictions relating to online political advertising which Lawless described to RT.com as:

“Any promotional material directed towards a political end – to promote a candidate for political office, to promote a particular political party, to influence the outcome of a referendum, or to influence an industrial relations dispute.”

Lawless pointed to alleged Russian meddling, despite a lack of concrete evidence, in both the US election and the Brexit referendum as the catalyst for his ‘Online Advertising and Social Media (Transparency) Bill 2017.’
