    Happy Christmas, and thank you for your content of various levels of interest and/or quality. I may not have liked everything you posted but I liked some of it a lot and some of it a moderate amount, and that’s why I come here most days :-)

    Merry Christmas to all and thanks to the crew at Broadsheet for all the year round entertainment.

    Happy Brexmas to all and thanks to the BS team for allowing a platform for the lone Brexit-supporting voice on here.
    There are more of us than you would think out there.
    Let’s hope 2018 will be as good for Brexiteers as this year has been.

      “Let’s hope 2018 will be as good for Brexiteers as this year has been”

      Lol, you’re delusional…

      1. Charger Salmons

        Both Article 50 triggered and stage one signed off on schedule.
        Brexit bill passing through Parliament with no serious opposition and Labour’s Brexit policy still in disarray.
        May in Poland today starting to sow the seeds of discord among the 27 states and Boris in Moscow sticking it up to the Ruskies.
        Couldn’t ask for much more.

        1. realPolithicks

          You apparently enjoy utter chaos, that being the case brexit is the gift that keeps on giving…

          1. Charger Salmons

            What chaos ?
            My government is delivering the democratic will of the people.I know that’s a difficult concept for an Irish person to understand but that’s all it is.
            We are re-negotiating the terms in which we trade with Europe.Nothing more,nothing less.

          2. realPolithicks

            Whatever you’re smoking you should lay off for a couple of days and allow your mind to clear, although you probably won’t like what you see.

          3. Charger Salmons

            We’ll I’m currently smoking a Cohiba and sipping a glass of nice Portuguese wine.
            The future looks tickety-boo for me old cock.

            Anyone else picturing the guy from the Hamlet cigar ad. sitting in a dank, smoke darkened room sipping Mateus Rosé from a plastic beaker?

            Happy Brexmass Charger.
            At least you are an entertaining Sun newspaper reading Tory.
            I hope Brexmass and Mrs. Feeble&Unstable bring you everything you deserve in 2018. I hope it’s a success for all of us, but not quite the way you think I’m sure.

      I’d wish you many happy Brexit returns except I like British people and your happiness in this regard means misery for them, and that’s me being painfully sincere.

      1. Charger Salmons

        Is that for the 17.4 million British people who voted for Brexit or the slightly smaller minority who didn’t ?
        Either way I reckon they can all just about carry on regardless of your concern.
        But thanks anyway.
        2017 – what a great year for democracy in action.
        Unless,of course,you live in Poland where the EU are now determined to punish their euroscepticism while at the same time cosying up to a Turkish regime that regular beats and imprisons without trial hundreds of opposition politicians and journalists.
        The EU gave Turkey over $600milllion this year in ” pre-accession ” funding and presumably some of that came from Irish taxpayers who are essentially paying for an Islamic dictatorship.
        Nice work if you can get it.

        1. Brother Barnabas

          genuine question..

          was there a particular life experience or specific incident in your life that made you like this?

          1. Charger Salmons

            Resentful of what ?
            Bigoted about what ?
            They’re easy terms to bandy about but where’s your evidence ?

        2. Charger Salmons

          No quarrel bro.
          Just a bit of to and fro badinage.
          Provided we keep it civil and good-mannered what’s the harm ?
          Mind you a good well-aimed zinger with a hint of venom does everyone the power of good.
          Anyway I wish you the best for a good Christmas and a healthy and happy 2018.

          1. Brother Barnabas

            you too, charger

            just think – this time 2019, the UK will be like a chilly cuba

            you’ll still have christmas, though

          2. Charger Salmons

            Or Singapore.
            Now that really would send Ireland back to the dark ages.
            Be careful what you wish for bro.

          3. Brother Barnabas

            I’m not wishing that – or anything negative – for the UK

            I’m very fond of Britain and the British, and wish nothing but good for the UK

            but I do think brexit will be a disaster

          4. Charger Salmons

            A lot of people share your opinion but an equal number don’t.
            We’ll never know until negotiations have concluded and Blighty is out of the EU.
            I’m just a tad surprised at the vitriol and animosity from some Irish people at what is simply another country carrying out the democratic wish of its people.
            Secretly I suspect there’s a degree of embarrassment and shame at the failure of Ireland,when it really,really mattered ( Lisbon Treaty and burning the bondholders ) to have the courage to do it themselves.
            Deep down if you’re being honest I think you know that as well.

        3. Nigel

          The British people I know. Some of whom have disabilities and are struggling with the nightmare the Tories are inflicting on them. Can’t see that getting anything but worse post Brexit. But sorry don’t let that interrupt your parroting of Faragist far right propaganda.

          1. Charger Salmons

            Nightmare you say ?
            The lowest unemployment figures in nearly four decades.
            Manufacturing order books at their highest level in 30 years.
            The UK has just topped Forbes list as the best country in the world to do business in.
            Record inward investment as more foreign countries choose to invest in Blighty than any other country in Europe,including Germany and France.
            Record numbers of doctors and nurses employed in the NHS.
            More people than ever before wanting to migrate to Blighty.
            Keep dem negative waves coming Nigel baby.

          2. Charger Salmons

            Legally it can’t be.
            Article 50 and all that.
            Politically 85% of UK voters at the last election voted for parties ( Tory and Labour ) who pledged to respect the result of the referendum.
            Can’t see it happening.

    Cheers Broadsheet. The ballsiest platform round these parts. More of this. Merry Christmas. And seasons greetings to all the commentees. Endlessly entertaining y’all are.

  5. Ben Redmond

    I wish a Happy Christmas to all my disgruntled readers. For me the Season of Goodwill ends on 2nd January 2018, and then I’ll feel free to write barbed comments again.
    Remember the slogan: DON’T FWOWN, SNILE.

    Happy Christmas BS!

    The art stuff, the bike stuff, the cartoons, the where would you get it, the very long transcripts. It was all good. Fair play

  8. Shayna

    Béannachtí Na Nollaig, á tous les personnes ici, Ich habe ein wish – Europe is stronger together. Anyhoos… Sorry about my occasional witterings throughout the year. BS is a great site, I wish the best for it, and all concerned, the very best for the new year.

  9. some old queen

    Happy Christmas BS. May it be one where listening to the people you love is way more important than giving or receiving overpriced stuff neither needs.

    Merry solstice and a happy new orbit to one and all. Ye piss me off and keep me sane in equal measure :-)

    1. x/y + z \[VerticalSeparator]

      ‘happy new orbit’…

      Seriously…
      I wish I’d thought of that before you did.
      It’s just like ‘fupp o**’, but more Christmassy.
      You can say it in front of your parents and stuff…

      Or did I get it wrong?

      1. scottser

        I nicked it off someone here a few orbits ago and it’s replaced the standard Xmas greeting from me. I recommend everyone uses it.

    I return your very kind sentiments. May you pile success upon success and enjoy everything the new year will bring.

    Happy Christmas to you all in what must surely be the twilight years of online commenting.
    Even “human trolls” may be a dying breed. According to some, at the rate at which the technology is advancing, in just a few years artificial intelligence chatbots will be indistinguishable from real people and will have become so widespreadly used, that they will overwhelm human speech online!

    Happy Christmas to all you housebound, sallow faced, work dodgin’, fried breakfast smellin’ losers. May Santa bring you the gifts of sunlight, happiness and success.

      Whatever you do, don’t order the vegetarian option in the Armagh City Hotel. It’s literally a step back into the 1980s. Absolutely dreadful.

      1. Shayna

        I’m a veggie type. I shan’t be attending, 7 miserable years, the latter 2 of which, I didn’t really attend. Ultimately, my degree is from The University of Southampton, rather than Oxford, or Cambridge.
        Armagh City Hotel’s function room can cater for @ 1,000 people sitting. As a Tyrone type (admittedly born in Stillorgan), the choice is a GAA nightmare.

    I actually saw two grown women nearly coming to blows over the last packet of Aunt Bessie’s Yorkshire Puddings in my local Supervalu tonight.
    I mean,squaring up in front of their bemused kids over a packet of frozen flour and water.
    If there had been a chair there I would have pulled it up and sat down to watch these two dumb-asses trading blows.
    More importantly they believed Yorkshire Puddings are an integral part of their Christmas Day lunch.As did most of the other shoppers in Supervalu because the shelves were cleared.
    Here’s the story.
    Yorkshire Puddings were invented when times were tough in the North of England and there wasn’t enough meat and spuds to go round.So Mammy would knock up a flour and water mix using the fat from the beef to make a starter that kept the hunger at bay before the paltry main course.
    Served as part of Christmas lunch ? You’d be laughed out of town.

  17. Shayna

    @ Charger Even when you start a comment that appears to be well-wishing, and nice – then you go into one, it’s as if nanny didn’t give you enough love.
    Merry xmas Blighty type!

    1. Charger Salmons

      You’ve gotta be cruel to be kind.
      Compliments of the season anyway and I hope you have a scrumptious Christmas and New Year.
      You strike me as a scrumptious type.

  18. petey

    Merry Christmas, meaning, “i bid you be merry because you too believe that the pre-existing creator God chose to intervene personally in human affairs.”

    innit.

      Sure I’ve been down the A340 headed for Cornwall, from London, I think I may have passed 3 Jesus types carrying a cross, just outside Salisbury. Incongruity – I love, christians v. everyone else. Although, I have to say I’m an atheist Catholic.
