****One in eight people in prison in the 26 counties left school at age 12 or
younger. Less than 17% stayed in school until age 17 or older.
According to the Prison Adult Literacy Survey released in September,
52% of prisoners are functionally illiterate. Yet the government prefers the
option of jailings rather than putting the necessary resources into the
schools - which would doubtlessly reduce the incidence of petty and anti-social crime.
****While Hewlett-Packard made 27,000 workers redundant across the
world, it rewarded its chief executive, Carla Fiorina, with a 231% pay
rise. AOL Time-Warner recently laid off 4,380 workers but found
enough cash to give its chief executive, Gerald Levin, a staggering 1,612% rise.


Napalm is a mixture of kerosene and polystyrene which sticks to
human flesh as it burns. In 1980 Ireland signed a United Nations
convention outlawing its manufacture, supply and use. Mark 77
firebombs made of 63 gallons of jet fuel (kerosene) and 22 pounds of
polymer gel (upgraded polystyrene) are still being manufactured
despite the UN ban. More than 200 US military cargo flights and 400
others on charter carried these munitions though Shannon this year.
As with telling the truth and keeping promises, international law does
not seem to apply to governments.
