    Why the hell not. Isn’t there always a little celebration to be savoured in D4 and some crystal-bell-announced-speech after dinner?

    First of that stuff is genuinely one of the worst tasting “premium” labels, the €8.99 bottle in Lidl tastes much nicer. And second what’s wrong with that shop selling it.

      Really? What’s a good one, then? I’ve had Bollinger and like it but I don’t know me hoop from me elbow where champagne is concerned.

        1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

          Should the occasion arise, I shall!
          I love champagne. I don’t like prosecco, generally. Too sweet. I’ve had a few nice crémants recently, though.
          I genuinely would love some booze right now.

            Meet me for boozy morning cocktails in twenty minutes. Your choice. I’ll be there.

            If only I weren’t tied to my desk.
            Back in the day, Mildred, I’da been outta here like hot snot.
            How the mighty have fallen.

            Me too, my dear, me too.

            I was going to paint a face onto my bin and sit it on my chair and hope they wouldn’t notice.

            They probably wouldn’t.

            We can dream of boozy coffee-flavoured cocktails for elevenses.

            I’m going to pop out for a real coffee and pretend there’s Kahlua in it.
            Friends of my parents used to use Baileys as milk in their morning coffee. They were a very perky pair.

          5. mildred st. meadowlark

            You (or rather them, the Baileys pair) are absolute genius.

            And no, that sentence doesn’t have to make sense.

            that’s what we call a funny mummies coffee in the cafe in front of the school

      1. Anomanomanom

        I wont pretend to be regular drinker of the stuff, I’m honestly a cheap date with my pints of Tuborg, but iv tasted a few of the premium champagne and im honestly not a fan. But the nicest iv tasted was called pul roger, or, pol roger cant remember exact name. I think its only about €40/50.

        1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

          My dad drinks Tubourg! It’s great value.
          Pol Roger. I know the name but don’t think I’ve had it.

      …left standing upright in a sunny shop window where the temperature will vary by more than 20deg over 24 hours…I wouldn’t buy it…well maybe at 8.99…

      1. Anomanomanom

        €8.99 is fantastic value, its honestly well worth that price. Just buy it in one of their shops that don’t keep the alcohol at the window, which is basically all of them.

  3. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

    I’d happily lash into that right now. I’ve never had a sip, being a right pov.

    fitting that it’s built on the sight of a laundry where the poor were exploited and their children sold off..

    1. TheOtherGuy

      What has the sale of a premium champagne got to do with the fact that the shop stands where a Magdalene laundry once stood? I really want to see how you connect this.

      1. bisted

        …the laundry should have been demolished and something like a memorial garden in memory of the victims of the nuns who operated this slavery put in it’s place…the Criminal Assets Bureau should seize the assets of these sadistic organisations and all the organisations and agencies that supported them and facilitated their heinous crimes…is that connection clear enough…dav may not be as charitable as me…

        1. TheOtherGuy

          Nope – really not connected it there at all. You’ve made some, valid, points about what should have happened regarding the payment of redress etc. But that’s not connected the champagne to the laundry. By any means.

      2. dav

        Don’t think it was run by the Magdalene’s but the general treatment of the poor girls working there would have been nice a cruel that the Magdalene’s would have approved.
        Champagne is always used to celebrate the rich’s exploitation of the poor, they don’t bother with perseco too much..

        1. TheOtherGuy

          ‘Champagne is always used to celebrate the rich’s exploitation of the poor…” – personally I take a nip of champers from my hip flask every time I cross a picket.

          You don’t have to be rich to enjoy champagne. Sure don’t Lidl sell a perfectly good bottle for €8.99?

          1. bisted

            …ok…here’s the deal…you open a bottle of Lidl champagne and if you can fill a hip flask in one go I’ll donate 50yoyos to the Iona Institute or the Angela Kerins distressed CEO court fund…

    Would not drink that muck if you paid me hundred pound. Give me something from tallboy and moose now we are talking
