Also any reason.
Ha ha ha! I heard that this morning. Such an Alan Partridge moment. Pat is an oddball
I just cannot believe this is like Ireland six thousand twenteen.
henceforth it shall be known as that
Ha ha! Brilliant. Thats even more like Partridge. Outstanding
unbelievable. as a commenter belo the vide points out he gets €9500 a week ( through a “production company” ) for that poo .
hi BS . I find poo more offensive than S***te.its so BBC / homecounties/prissy .The guardian drops f and c bombs all the time . Plus how come you change that and leave my typos !
Ahahahahhahahahahhahaha. Shouldn’t DJ hungry. Legit funniest thing I’ve ever heard on RTE, the man is beyond parody.
I hate Pat Kenny
finally we agree on something.
He tussled with an old man for god’s sake!! That should have been his downfall.
Your broadcast tax at work people
Isn’t newstalk privately funded? Like most privately funded things in Ireland its owned by Denis O’Brien in fact I now owe Denis O’Brien 36 cents because he owns the use of the words privately funded
My bad forgot he’d jumped ship.
Boy is my face red.
Ah sure we all make mistakes………….like Pat!
this says a lot about ireland today. which isnt that far off ireland yesterday.
No it doesn’t.
Come on people.
It’s not like he suggested she play the best of 5 sets at Wimbledon!
and almost exactly like the Ireland of tomorrow we voted for.
I wonder what gaffe he’ll make on international mans day. G’wan the lads!
Tune in on 19 November and find out!
Wow, so many issues that you could focus on for IWD, but its Pat Kenny’s tweet. How very safe of you all. Middle class pretenders.
ah, ladies, look! It’s a fella come to tell us what’s actually worth being upset about! Go on, Tony, we’re listening.
In the meantime, here’s a joke for ya – where do men’s rights activists get their water from? A well, actually.
Stealing that joke, Starina!
The recipient of my stolen version says “Ahahahahaha”.
*Mr Burns voice* exccccellent.
I stole it from someone else!
That is excellent
Well said Tony. IWD is not a day for highlighting the published view of Ireland’s patriarchy that a woman’s role is in the home and that the entirety of a woman’s career should be cast aside when it comes time to make babies.
Casual sexism national radio is Not The Right Sort Of Issue.
Tony’s focusing on the vital issue of other people focusing on the wrong issues.
I want fewer mocking of women’s rights activist Tony and more details about what he’s decided is the issue and how I can help his campaign (if I may be so bold as to suggest he’s not doing it all just great by himself, but maybe the tea and sangers need made?)
The comfort of middle class twat activists. Repeal the 8th and Educate together. Seems to be all that bothers you. Problems most women only dream of while they get on with the real world.
Problems like people being wrong on the internet which Tony is totally on top of. He’s so feminist he’s got dispensation from the Pope of Feminism to use misogynistic insults.
Tell us about women in the real world, Tony. The real world you live in like a woman, and the artificial world women live in.
When casual sexism is the problem, then you have no idea what the issues are. My dears.
I actually thought Tony was joking at the start
No, Tony’s very serious about non-casual sexism. He’s doing everything he can about it. EVERYTHING. He’s already identified what it isn’t, and what more help can the laydeez expect?
The real issue is formal sexism, which is when casual sexism changes into a tux.
I got my secretary to research it for me. She asked the lovely gentleman from the office beside us. The the dote typed it out for me. Its seems that feminism is now the preserve of the middle class liberals which is why its getting such push back. She dug out a lovely quote from Camille Paglia “If feminism has receded in visibility and prestige, it is precisely because its vision of life’s goals and rewards has become too narrow and elitist”. Bless.
sweet jesus, Tony, can I get you a coffee or something? Light your cigarette?
Yeah, *that’s* why it’s getting so much pushback. If only the ladies would be upper class and illberal, feminism would be all working out excellent.
Tony Stark (raving mad).
Chalking this one up as a victory lads. Tony started the day not even knowing what international women’s day was, and now he’s quoting Paglia. Job done, let’s take the rest of the day off.
Camille Paglia of Taylor Swift is an “obnoxious Nazi barbie” fame? lol
Im just wondering where the real feminists have gone? The ones that actually wanted change rather than just be part of a gang. Anywhooo, they are not here. Probably having lunch on their hubby’s credit card… Or in Nigels case, serving it.
Wait wait, he’s going to tell us who a REAL feminist is next, not all those bitching, shrieking fake feminists
I certainly don’t mind Tony suggesting I might be a waiter, ‘cos Tony just got served.
Tony got served?
Feminist Tony is possibly the best thing to happen today
D’youse wanna be in my gang, my gang, my gang?
D’youse wanna be in my gang?
I robbed a powerful man’s credit card!
Thanks Rotide, Im a big fan of your work as well. Only you can see through my cunning ways :-)
Oh yes, the classic Tony was just pretending to be an idiot response. What larks!
Where did I pretend that? Im for real Don. Not just a fair-weather feminist fashionista.
Do you mean to say that someone who started off posing an entirely innocent, off-the-cuff question about feminism was not genuinely interested in feminism and had an ulterior motive?
I am gobsmacked. This has never happened before every time.
Unlike Don whos like that all the time:)
Here comes rotide, screaming for attention
Come on Tony, you know so much, tell us what to focus on.
As a lover of all things cringe such as Curb Your Enthusiasm and Peep Show, this is even too much for me.
cringe ! he has the charisma of a sick bag according to the SCUM around the country.
Can’t listen to that without Kanye’s “Oh god” in there anymore
ain’t nobody f ing with my click ! click !
Well it didn’t take long to get from the Camille Paglia liberal love-in to literally quoting the Society for Cutting Up Men. Broadsheet, go back in the kitchen and make me a biscuit, your true colours are showing. My dearie.
Haha… ya big spanner Pat, bet ya knocked one out behind the desk at the thought Pat.
Ya big bellend.
Oh relax feminists.
Oh, Tony has a friend in activism!
I think you’ll find Tony is the only real feminist on BS
Not just a weekend warrior Don.
Or, a warrior, it seems
You have fought well today, but your need to be liked always gets the better of you. Try a spine maybe?
Says he who had to revert to the “I was joking” defence
Fighting the particular good fight that requires attacking women on the internet!
Pat Kenny is an arsehole, this is not in any dispute by anyone anywhere. He’d make this sort of gaffe on any day about any strata of people.
Calling this an example of sexism on IWD just makes Feminist Tony right.
TODAY OF ALL DAYS!!
I think we’ll need to check whether or not there are corporate sponsors involved in this show as that will affected exactly how sexist the comment was
Broadsheet citing an example of sexism that happened on IWD as an example of sexism that happened on IWD means something about feminism. What, we’re not sure, but it implicates every feminist everywhere. Because casual sexism is clearly unimportant. The sexism that occurs every day in an offhand thoughtless way, that’s not the sexism that matters at all! People like Feminist Tony who calls people twats and talks about women dining out on their hubby’s credit cards knows what’s really important in feminism, and it can’t possibly be casual, everyday throwaway sexist comments on a national radio station!
You and your ilk sold out Don and your only target on IWD is Pat Kenny. What a story to tell your kids. Should you of course chose to have them (its your choice natch). They can tell Khalim and Svetlana all about your courage in their godless creche.
“They can tell Khalim and Svetlana all about your courage in their godless creche”
Good, I hope so. I don’t want any religion getting on them at all.
I have a child in a godless creche. I don’t want anyone to paedo her up like they do in goddy creches (also known as industrial schools/orphanages).
Lol – wtf is a godless crèche?
LOLS – A godless crèche is a day orphanage for abandoned kids where their callous mothers dump them while they drive to the workplace and rip a job out of the bastion of the white male who deserved it more…
couldnt agree more. pats can be a twit but there has been a lot of twittery today from the wimmin roisin ingle and co.
I wonder what Lisa Carey thinks.
Tries to be funny
But kicks himself up the whole
