Thanks Damien Cahill
I hope she uses PowerPoint.
With a red laser from her eyes.
There’ll be a fair few irish citizens watching and wishing she still ruled them.
Somehow the gimpy midget we have as President doesn’t quite conjure up the same love and affection.
Speak for yourself there Anvil.
I’m quite proud of Micheal D. I think he has done an outstanding job to date – and we should of course note that it is a non political role so you can’t blame him for the state of the State.
Personally, I find your remarks about his being a ‘gimpy midget’ insulting. Like the man himself I’d be a bit vertically challenged and if I was to rise to high office (unlikely, but who knows!) I’d be sad to find that everyone who wasn’t a fan started in with insults about my height like I endured during my childhood.
Seriously, isn’t that sort of stuff something most bullies leave behind when they leave the school-yard?
Anyhow, I don’t mean to have a rant at you, just pointing out that not everyone dislikes our president, and that there is nothing clever about picking on peoples physical appearances.
Fair enough on the midget stuff but you can’t really argue with the gimpy bit
here here Avril
You can fek off to the Shankill or across to Britain, if you are keen to become one of her subjects.
Nice find, Terry Prone is on the case and calling the British Embassy, she’s on a retainer for this sort of stuff.
Given there’s royalty involved, she may be a retainer.
No, she’ll be on OUR TVs lecturing US about something, I suspect, because she received a shame-ectomy sometime in the last few years. RTÉ seriously need to leave Queenie alone. They’re in a weak position to criticise anybody about lecturing, given the bile some of their “our much loved entertainers”, paid by our taxes, have been spewing out after Melanie Verwoerd’s memoir and othersuch things.
In the meantime, I’ll be in the posture of my adversary – face down with my head in the muck till all this is over.
Never mnind that anyway, watch Room on the Broom, it’s a great book, they better do it justice in the animated version.
As an aside, anyone else seeing the comments section here going right across the page to the right? Seems to have fallen out of its box (technical term).
So you’re saying the comments are out of their box?
Or getting more right wing?
Whatever the problem was, seems to have been fixed. Comments now safely contained in their box again. What a relief.
PS. No didn’t mean more politically right wing, although I like the reading of it that way.
a bit slow but i see it now :) …ha…. (3pm for those slower than me) id watch that if the description was right
Where do I send my CV? I reckon there could be vacancy in the editorial dept of the RTE guide…………Oh maybe not.
The BBC News at One starting at 12:05 is also a little off!!
The must have given a job to the person behind the Not The RTÉ Guide twitter account.
Save yourselves €1.50 and buy the Christmas Issue of TVNow instead!
The bit that socked me most is that they still print those 7 digit numbers for recording, is it called ‘video plus’ or something like that. Who in all likelihood still needs them. Reminds me of “and if you have a colour TV you must have a colour licence”.
I don’t think anyone can use them, with Saorview.
Why is the national broadcaster advertising this kind of forrin stuff anyway? Sure nobody watches it, that would be unpatriotic.
The job must’ve been given to the unpaid intern. A bit like this one: http://www.dalkeyarchive.com/aboutus/?fa=Employment
Hat tip as well to the BBC News at One. Starting at 12.05.
What’s your problem? The BBC is always crap at Christmas.
But as bad as it is – we can expect it to be so much less a waste of electricity – than the crap put out by RTE.
