            +1. How is it not a conflict of interest when the chairperson of the national broadcaster also owns a major PR firm whose clients include the ruling government party?

      He’s not a dope: he’s got plenty of smarts (I’ve “known” him since college days). He’s just a total and utter c*ck.

      1. Lilly

        Surprised to hear person who knows him think he has smarts. He is boring, predictable and pedestrian. Surely someone with smarts would recognise this about themselves and get a job as a clerk.

        He couldn’t even think of a an interesting or relevant question to ask Pussy Riot, a feat that you’d imagine a dim child could manage even without a team of researchers to help.

    In a major coup, Jonathan Ross has secured an interview with Lucinda’s eyebrows who promise to reveal the real reason behind their split and dish the dirt on new beau, Russell Brand.

    a night in trying to suck your own mickey would be more productive than watching that oul sh1te.

      Didn’t Prince (TAFKAP or whatever) get some ribs removed so he could do that?
      On reflection, that has more than a bang of urban legend about it.

    Brilliant, they got the fat kid who lost weight and a lovely girl for the show. A maze zing.

    “So, Derek, ya big blubber what attracted you to the lighter side of life” says BOC while rubbing his own new slim belly and fishing for compliments….. *audience goes ‘woooooohooo’ and Brendan blushes*
    …after the break…
    “So, Lucinda, what in hells blazes are ya doin’ with that Fidelma one?”
    …after the break…
    “Welcome back, during the break we swapped Lucinda’s and Derek’s clothes and we want you to tell us which one looks more capable of delivering a baby while riding a bike, Derek in heels and suspenders or Lucinda in Derek’s tent”

      Lol. A pressing question indeed! What the hell is an intelligent woman like you Lucinda doing with the utterly half-baked and hilariously self-entitled Fidelma Healy Eames? The mind boggles.

    Did anyone ever hear the “MarionMiriam?” interview on the Transistor with Lucinda and husband? Oh, 2 years ago easily. Made me mind up then good and firm I did.

    Will he ask her any relative Questions. For instance is it going to be an actual political party or basically an alliance of independents. See the huge difference is that if it’s a group of independents they all keep there leaders allowance, thousands extra, if it’s a party with members only the leader gets the allowance

    Mrs Righton soloing on Saturday Night Telly????
    Eddie Hobbs won’t like that.

    There must be a split

    As an aside, DD was one of the RTE ever had. And if he’s allowed or even arsed, he could easily and with taking a breath or needing cue cards, wipe the floor with his fellow guest.

    1. andyourpointiswhatexactly

      Aye. He was excellent. Also, a very nice man in person: I’ve had the plezh of meeting him a few times.

      1. andyourpointiswhatexactly

        Ha. I didn’t even miss the word: I just mentally inserted it without noticing.

          marty whelan is an absolute gent. i had the dubious pleasure of playing at michael flatley’s end of run party for the lord of the dance show. twas a corporate thing so we were essentially wallpaper. who was the only one up and dancing? yep, our marty whelan. had a pint with him after and he’s such a sound and engaging bloke. pretty much everyone else there was so far up their hole they had honorary proctology qualifications.

          1. Joe the Lion

            I concur. I met him in a similar capacity some years ago also and he could not have been more supportive, professional or courteous.

          2. Drogg

            I have also worked with him a few times the man is an absolute gent and no one can work a room like him.

            If you actually listen to him on his various radio shows he’s very self deprecating and down to earth. Why he’s still on that Winning Streak shite I’ll never know.

            Plus he was hilarious and got in on the joke when that picture of him with the boner appeared. Kudos, Marty.

          4. Clampers Outside!

            Delighted to read these comments. He comes across as such on the telebox. Don’t know why RTE don’t give him a proper show.
            I’d chance him at doing the Saturday Night gig, I think he’d be more natural than BOC anyway :)

          5. Spaghetti Hoop

            Seeing as yiz are all Marty’s mates / lovers, ask him to quit the fake English Lord accent on the radio will ye.

          6. scottser

            ah hoop, i truly believed him when he said ‘tesco, every little helps’. since he’s been gone i haven’t put a foot near the place, for now i know they’re trying to rip me off at every hand’s turn.

    This will simply be a soft focus “me, socially conservative?!, not at all dear Brendan, we a conscience based party” type interview.

    “But you all share the same views on social issues?” – “Yes, Brendan but we’re still a conscience based party and if anyone is willing to become our socially liberal stooge, we’ll gladly welcome you into our ranks”.

    A conscience based party as long as the vast majority are religious-based social conservatives…
