      You mean The Times and not ‘The Irish Times’ which appears to be a day late with everything recently.

    so are we on the new improved server now? will i be able to read this on my android again, which i had abandoned doing, because of the interminable waits in turning over etc?

    So if Verruca’s grandstanding over the border issue pushes the UK towards no deal which EU country stands to lose out most ?
    His naivety should worry Irish citizens.
    It’s impossible to solve the border issue without knowing what a future trade deal would entail.
    He knows that and the EU knows that but this clown who thinks showing off his green socks is statesmanlike is embarrassing Ireland on the international stage.

      It is the UK that are being naive. They think they can have their cake and eat it, we are asking them to show us now this is done.

            “It’s 18 months since the [Brexit] referendum. It’s ten years since people who wanted a referendum started agitating for one. Sometimes it seems that they haven’t thought all this through.”
            In other words, Varadkar has. Pity he wouldn’t share his good news that the conundrum has been solved.

            Apparently the sun has labeled varadkar the “brexit buffoon”. Not withstanding the source, if you remove the “brexit” bit they have it right.

      Does the €113,461 a WEEK Strategic communications unit work at weekends because it will have to work overtime to answer the Sun’s stinging critisisms of Taoiseach!

        The Sun? Nobody takes that comic seriously. Why didn’t their Irish version run the story? It shows Leo in a good light that the Sun is having a go. Of course, they are trying to distract from their own ship of fools.

      I’m thinking of getting a doggy soon.. any suggestions? I want a real snuggler, nothing too vicious, and clever too. Like meself..ha ha. It’s the boyfriend’s suggestion so I’ll leave him alone. I’ve a feeling my little furry friend will end of sitting by his lap all the time though..

        Train the dog to believe a articular pocket has treats, like a breast pocket.
        Then when the dog is looking at you, and your boyfriend, just tap the pocket and you’ll win every time :)

        1. anne

          That sounds like a good idea….but how do you train a dog to believe there’s treats in a particular pocket unless you actually have treats in your pocket. If he believes it without evidence he’s one stupid dog.

          And if you tap your pocket & there’s no treat, how long before he cops that there used to be a treat but there’s no longer a treat? If he continues to believe there’s a treat when there’s been none he’s also one dumb animal.. I want a clever one I said . :-)

          Yeah Jack Russell’s are cool..I was thinking a Bichon but now that I think of it I want something a bit tougher & meaner.. a Jack Russell would tear strips out of a Bichon. They’re a mad too aren’t they? Trained to go hunting originally I think.. might do the job. As long as they like a bit of snuggling too mind you..

            I have a Jack
            a mad smuggler, incredibly clever
            but these dogs are stubborn and need a very firm but kind hand
            they will constantly test you and need lots of exercise and stimulation and interaction( toys games etc )
            also they tend to pick one person as boss and see all other humans as beneath that
            not a dog for a first time owner generally but the best of all dogs when you get it right!

        1. anne

          Are they big? I might want something that’ll fit in the bed.. Like i wont mind as long as they’ll fupp back to their own bed once the snuggling n chat is done with..

        Go for a cross breed.

        Overall, much healthier than pedigree type pups.

        I’d say a cross between a spaniel and something like a jack russell or something like that. Spaniels love affection. They want all the snuggles.

          Thanks Mildred..I think you’re right. my sister had a scottish west highland terrier..a westie..& she always had problems with her hips.. ate her own sh*te too for some reason.. musta been tasty. sorry if you’re having your cornflakes..

        Go to the pound, have a look around, one of them will present itself as the likeliest candidate. Much better off with a dog that actually needs a home than going to a breeder.

        Also, lose the ‘i want a mean dog that’ll tear strips off a bichon’ attidude or else get a staffie like all the other knuckledraggers with that attidude.

          If you get a dog from pound,do you have to get it microchipped again or can the information on microchip be changed,any idea?

        1. Nuala Mc Namara

          Your dog was so cute &huge!My own previous dog died 2 years ago after 17years,it was so sad .Daughter got me tiny “lapdog’ but like your he grew bigger&bigger& could fit on 2 laps.Its great to get another dog especially after losing a dog.

        Skip the dog Anne and get a cat, they are very low maintainence (most of the time). They also bury their own poop…I’ll say no more.

        1. realPolithicks

          I just edited my comment…very exciting..well done lads. Any other innovations available that we should know about?
