    That pic of Girls rescued off the “ghost ship” is so moving. Standing with their stuffed toys, they look so young. It could’ve been a much worse outcome!

    “Exclusive”, “Revealed”, “Secret” – in the past month, the SBP has certainly adopted the lexicon of the Sindo for its front pages, I wonder if it will halt its slide and is it keeping above 30,000 copies a week.

    WTF is it wi’ Eucinda’s coverage

    If anyone reading this was at ReBoot press call can they give us a roll call

    All I can count is Eucinda, See Which Way The Wind Is Blowing Now Hobbs, and a Councillor who I never saw in front of a camera before.

    Anyone else flying Reboot colours?

      Declan Ganley will not be supporting her for the time being, at least, because of commitments to a new project in the U.S..
      Speaking to the Sunday Times and the new parties decision, not to take a position on abortion, Mr. Ganley said“I don’t think this is the way to go. One of the thing’s we have suffered from in Irish politics, is that everybody is trying to be all things to all men. Be pro-life, be in favour of flat tax. There is a massive constituency out there which is pro-life, so why not embrace that?
      One way of measuring whether you are being effective is to ask “Are you pissing off the right people?” Be radical, be different, be prepared to defend your position”

      Flat tax – anyone?

      Oh to answer your original question, Frilly. – “Anyone else flying Reboot colours?”

      “AT LEAST five sitting TD’s and senators”
      I tried to work out what this meant and who they were, from the article.
      From what I can gather:
      Senator’s, Fidelma Healy Eames and Paul Bradford.
      Former Fine Gael TD’s – Billy Timmins and Terence Flanagan.
      Not forgetting Lovely Lucy herself.

      Suggestions are that they call themselves “The Reform Party” but looking at that list maybe they could also consider “The No Mark” party

        How about “The Irrelevants “? I know it sounds more like a band but it would be quite accurate.

        Ta Odis.
        But tell us, were Healy Eames, Timmons etc at the photo op?

        Like. You’d think they’d all be doing the scrum formation around the top table…

        Jesus. I wouldn’t put any of ’em in charge of the canteen.

          No Frilly, Lucinda wasn’t joined at the photo op, by any of these disgruntled losers. Which is odd in itself.
          I understand from an article in the Sado, that her two m80’s were Independent Offally councillor John Leahy and the financial guru Eddie Hobbs

            I’m talking about Lucy’s m80’s at the photo-op, on Friday, here Clampers.

            Of course Fidelma is classed as a m80. Coz Lucy’s a popular girl and visionary politician. Who has a four point plan for a brighter future.
            Its just that Fidelma wasn’t there on Friday. No doubt she was busy with Senate business and Affairs of State, and the like..

        Interesting blog – thanks for the link

        Re Lucinda Creighton: is she just a woman that unambitious middle-aged Irish men fantasise about?

        1. Odis

          Speaking as an unambitious middle-aged Irish man” – I find your comment cheap, ageist and in very poor taste.
