Trial of the Killer of Moses Ayanwole begins

Trial of the Killer of Moses Ayanwole begins

Strangely most of the comments I’ve heard attributed to Taxi drivers about this case seem to argue for the killer getting off … at least very lightly.

He killed a Taxi driver in the course of his shift, sure it was a single punch … but it should never have been thrown.

Edit: Not guilty, that’s justice, we must accept it.

    Questions I now get asked regularly
    (1) are you out long ?
    (2) are you busy ?
    (3) are you with hailo ?
    it’s strange but when I say no to the latter I get a kind of silence that I have done something wrong anyone else feel this way or am I just a little paranoid ?

  2. Ben 2 years ago

    Rat its nothing new for one of my posts to disappear

  3. bohemian boy 2 years ago

    chester that’s exactly right,. I even get critised for not being with hailo. rat you say discounts are nessesary in todays economic climate.i totally was Ebbs, and others who introduced them AT THE DRIVERS EXPENSE when the public did not even look for them. also you say Ebbs, and the others proceeded with the discount policy in line with the drivers consent ? you ring Ebbs today and tell him you would like to work under his banner, but you are not prepared to give discounts and see what he tells you. these same radio companies also introduced the use of credit card facilities when the public did not look for them thereby putting drivers to further expense.regarding my other point. these tow rags are employed by the DRIVERS. they are a service provider and as such their only function is to provide that service to the people who pay them to do so. their function IS NOT to tell drivers what to wear [further expense] their function IS NOT to offer discounts [AT THE DRIVERS EXPENSE] their function CERTAINALY IS NOT to dicsiplian drivers by knocking them off the system [to which they have subscribed] for giving back heavily discounted work [that the company] agreed the price for,part of their function certainly IS to find ways to stop work going out the back door to base controllers cronies, another thing I would suggest is that some of the people in these bases could do with refresher courses in dealing with the public. a lot of my customers tell me the rudeness they have experienced when they USED to ring, was unbelievable

    Ben it looks like my prediction was right about the swiss voting to put a stop to foreigners invading their country. all the far right parties are now calling for a similar referendum. hopefully the arse holes here will do likewise

  5. Ben 2 years ago

    Boh you were spot on, nice to see the Swiss wake up and realise they are being abused. And thats only by people from other EU countries who are coming at a rate of 80,000 per year. Now add in the africans who love welfare and everything free, and you have an almighty mess.
    Time for our gobshites to do the same, full house sign needs to go up rapid.
    Welfare abuse in this country is at an all time high, Burton needs to do what Cameron has done. No handouts for immigrants for at least 3 months, or longer. Let them go back home, we did not invite them.

  6. sclass 2 years ago

    First that little weasel Shatter has to go he’s giving out Irish passports like snuff at a wake. Be very careful who you vote for next time.

  7. bohemian boy 2 years ago

    all across Europe the far right are calling for a ban on immigration,and to follow the swiss lead. get the labour party out now and fukk Robinson

  8. bohemian boy 2 years ago

    I am fed up with so called celibrities being given a voice in politics. bono, just because he is a famous singer gets to rub shoulders with the americian president, Geldof the same, yer woman o Conner demanded to see the minister about something or other and got an immeadiate meeting with him,Eamon Coughlan, and now Kenny Egan declares for fine gael. the list is endless of political parties recruiting these people just because they are famous. the fact that they may have been top class athletes, singers, footballers,etc etc should not be a reason to bring them on board. this is sickening when you look at places like clondalkan where fine gael have just recruited Kenny Egan to run. now look at the erms potential. a man who knows the system, who is very articulate when expressing himself, who has a keen interest in politics, and above all has the interest of taxi drivers at heart. we should be asking the erm to put himself forward for election in the forthcoming elections and backing him to the hilt

    John I am not even going to try to read that because of the length of it,but you take the point I am making. its quite ridiculous that a person should be coerced into standing for election on foot of their celebrity status. most of these people would have no knowledge, or commitment to the political arena they sign up to. I also think its very wrong of political parties to recruit such people for that purpose. we, the people want real political representitives,not a fukking circus act. politics will go backwards unless we start to elect people who actually care. John I think you should seriously consider running yourself, and I think its up to us to support you

  11. Ben 2 years ago

    Egan will go back on the drink and turn out to be a bigger clown than anyone we have now. Would not vote for any jerk like him.

  12. bohemian boy 2 years ago

    Ben its not because of Kennys addiction that I would not vote for him, I have total respect for his commitment to the 12 step programme of recovery.however I think its very wrong for political parties to try and win seats off the backs of someone who cannot really give proper representation to the voters. this is why I think the erm should run at least he is totally committed and knows the system.

  13. john m 2 years ago

    BB this is the opening sentences in the Presidential Election chapter …..In a weird turn about there was a sensational result in the presidential election . Brady was past the post according to Ladbrokes who had already paid out .An interview given by Brady to Ursula Mc Ursula on her politics programme To Tell The Truth .Where Brady claimed that he had been abducted by a flying saucer and probed internally frightened the voters away and they changed their allegiances to Frank Dunlop.

    Bit like twittergate .Dosent matter how ridiculous a story sounds it can happen in Irish politics .Boh read it some night with a cup of tea and a biscuit .

  14. Ben 2 years ago

    Boh i agree with you. Apart from his addiction, he does not have any business experience that would make him suitable for politics. All he knows is boxing, nothing else. Fine Gael would be clowns to put him forward.
    John m what the fcuk are you on about

  15. john m 2 years ago

    Ben I wrote a story before the last election when every celebrity in the country thought they would stand for election and solve all the problems .Dumphy .Derek Davis ,Roddy Collins and anybody with a public profile were lining up to have a go but their egoes got in the way .I wrote a Fantasy government story about what would happen if we ever voted for these muppets .

  16. Ben 2 years ago

    Sorry john m did not know about that.

  17. Ben 2 years ago

    Egan has confirmed for Fine Gael. Muppets

  18. john m 2 years ago

    Going to be interesting to see what happens after the elections .It looks like they have gerrymandered the constituencies with 7,8 and 9 seat wards .This guarantees that a lot of Indies will be elected.The first thing a new council has to do is pass the budget .It is unlikely that the established parties will have a majority .If the budget is not passed then the Minister for the Environment appoints an administrator to run the show .This would be a disaster as he will not have to answer to any party .So increases in Property tax ,Congestion Charges ,Parking fees ,will all be introduced .Then Enda Will tell us not to be voting for independents in the general election as they are cowards when it comes to taking political decisions .

  19. Ben 2 years ago

    That sounds very exciting

  20. john m 2 years ago

    Ben its obviously a set up .To increase democracy they increased the size of the constituencies for the local elections .So why did they reduce the number of 5 seat constituencies for the general elections ?In a 3 seater you would need 25% of the vote rules out the indies and favours the FG or FF makes sure SF dont grow in the country .Its all about power .

    You’re a gas man BB. It was your own CTA that colluded with MABS to get them all driving cabs while on welfare.

    Of course you can’t join Global unless you agree to the terms and conditions. The same goes for Hailo and every other dispatch firms. Discounting policies in the Irish firms were developed in consultation with the drivers that work for the firms. In Hailo drivers were simply given an ultimatum. Hope you, as a drivers’ representative, can promote the latter over the former is beyond me. Other rules and regulations covering dress code and such like are necessary to enforce common sense on drivers that have none.

  22. Ben 2 years ago

    john m politics in general is totally corrupt, anything for power

  23. sidewinder 2 years ago

    i blame nta,their to blame.

  24. Rat Catcher 2 years ago

    I blame CTA… anyone else?

  25. ger 2 years ago

    I blame enda.

  26. Ben 2 years ago

    i blame the bunny rabbit

  27. sidewinder 2 years ago

    as far as im concerned its everyones to blame except me

  28. ger 2 years ago

    And me.

  29. chester 2 years ago

    Well I blame GSOC they were listening to everything or where they ? personally I think that they opened a can of worms just to justify their existence and carry on getting their big salaries from the government sorry tax payer.

  30. Ben 2 years ago

    GSOC bugged themselves just for attention. Bigger salaries will be wanted now. Danger money they will call it.

  31. Rat Catcher 2 years ago

    I can’t say I’ve ever known Civil Servants to feel any need to justify their salaries. CTA, on the other hand, craved attention, and didn’t give a fukk who it colluded with to get some.

  32. ger 2 years ago

    Who is CTA? Never heard of it. Is it some secret gov dept operating out of a bunker in the phoenix park?

  33. Ben 2 years ago

    Ger that’s classified info, Rat cannot share it with you. But if you buy a few gin and tonics for Laura Shatter she might start talking. Gobshite of a Commissioner probably knows also, but he will be too thick to know that he actually knows. Callinan I mean of course, the clown that talks shit outta the side of his gob.

  34. ger 2 years ago

    Yeah. Just watching laura and co on the state run television. And the one thing they all have in common?? Money. They are all overpaid baboons. They wont have to worry about paying the bills in their old age. Us? We will be lucky to be able to put food on the table. Thats if we live that long.

  35. Ben 2 years ago

    Ger they will have their big pensions etc, while we suffer. Never saw such a bunch of gobshites anywhere in the world. They dont know if gsoc was bugged or not. Even the head of that quango, Simple Simon, does not know. He thinks he was bugged by someone. Perhaps a short break in the central mental hospital would do him the world of good. Well he is clearly a nutter who needs help.
    By the way, Laura is writing a new book. She was seen speeding through Moycullen recently, rumoured to heading for Clifden. Name of book i am informed is Sarah Jane. Its all about the exploits of a 64 year old one armed leasbian from Cleggan, who was disowned by her Catholic family when she finally came out. She was last seen living in a mud hut, adjacent to the mens shed in Renville. If you thought Laura was steamy, just wait until Sarah Jane hits the shops. All the local gossip says some American tv channel wants the rights to film it, but Laura is holding out for big bucks. More gossip to follow.

  36. ger 2 years ago

    Id say laura shatter has be well bugged. Many times over.

  37. Ben 2 years ago

    they are all a comical bunch of tossers, what must foreign viewers think of whats going on

  38. ger 2 years ago

    Ben. I think most people who know anything about ireland, know that it is corrupt to the core. A country run by gangsters in suits who care for nobody except themselves and their corrupt buddies.senior garda on huge money going around in their nice little uniforms talking crap. Laura and his mates in kildare st bleeding us all dry with all their new taxes and charges. And what do we, the irish people do? NOTHING. We sit there and take it up the swiss roll. If this was a south american country, those filthbags in leinster house would be swinging by their necks from lamp posts on kildare st.

  39. Ben 2 years ago

    you described it to perfection ger, we take too much shit so the skumbag politicians will keep dishing it out. can’t understand why Irish people are such lambs

  40. chester 2 years ago

    Anyone who thought they were going to make a nice few quid last night (Valentine’s) were I would say bitterly disappointed because of the number of drivers that thought they were going to make a nice few quid…worst Friday night ever there’ll come a day when drivers will go around looking for ‘sick people’ just to try and get the €140 soilage charge.

  41. Rat Catcher 2 years ago

    I did OK Chester. The Venue was hopping, still work at the new McDonalds opposite it at 04:30. Luck of the draw I guess.

    Capital Taxi Association Ger, our own BB is one of the suits.

  42. Rat Catcher 2 years ago

    It was about to balance out tonight Chester. I was having a disaster ’till I got Stamullen Via Portmarmock and Balrothery off the Venue Unofficial (EUR80 after a small discount) to bring me home.

  43. chester 2 years ago

    Nice one ratz didn’t do to bad myself tonight couple of decent runs just goes to show the jobs we are losing out on by quing at a rank it’s every man for themselves out there now probably the beginning of the breakdown of law and order on this island of ours shame..but the authorities never listened to the cries for help.

  44. Ben 2 years ago

    Q at a rank is not always the policy, sometimes its better to cruise. Best jobs ever i got over the years were flagdowns. Often passed a rank and same cars there for long periods, and i would have two or three jobs done. What does Marty say…every little helps.

  45. Rat Catcher 2 years ago

    Still wasn’t a great night to be honest but without that bitta luck it woulda been a complete write off. I suppose luck used to balance out with a reasonably consistent result. Very hit and miss these days.

    Very rare that I use an official stand. I might occasionally hold the bus or Connolly if I get up above to Dublin but you invariably have to break the law by over-ranking to get on.

  46. Ben 2 years ago

    Its all about a bit of luck on the day or night. One decent job, or maybe a good tip, can send us home smiling. If the shift is going bad, just hang on and that job will come.
