      Binchy has been banging that drum for years. He used to be on the tele all the time in eighties spearheading the anti-divorce and to a lesser extent anti-contraception campaigns.

            What didn’t take long? It didn’t take long…..for someone to provide a video of him sharing his opinions?

            You’re awfully thin-skinned if you regard that post as ‘demonisation’, rotide.

            This is becoming the new trope on the social right, that Free Speech demands we all be silent while they pronounce how everyone else must live their lives. Any objections and we’re persecuting them and restricting their freedom to restrict our freedoms. Yawn inducing.

            If you seek to rule over other people, expect to be argued with.

      Can’t listen to that Binchy fella. Sounds a lot like that smug pr*ck Simon Harris, although at least Binchy found a suit that fits him and didn’t have to borrow his aul lad’s

    Is that Donald Trump on front row in front of lady with loud hailer? He got caught in a shower of rain? Private jet to dublin?

    Fiona de Londras has to be pro-choice.

    She’s got that annoying liberal smirk – a bit like Laura NicDiarmada.

    Birds of a feather etc.
