    Almost time for their summer holidays anyway. We may have to wait until winter for a government. Uh…..

    Great to see it taking place in trinners.

    Which in case you didn’t know….is for winners.

        As soon as you pass more than three men in a row wearing brown shoes with powder blue suits*, it’s decided.

        *Only catching on now in the midlands and northwest.

          My Mayo friend pointed out two guys in suits the other day saying ‘that’s the style I’m going to get next time I buy a suit’. They were blue suits with brown shoes. Not the worst variation of same that I’ve seen in fairness but I steered him away from it in any case, the most efficient way someone who knows this particular Mayo man could, by saying girls snigger at that style behind their backs.

          It’ll be some time before I can broach the subject of the brown cords that are gone shiny from over-wear though.

            If they took out the brown shoes it would be stylish. Otherwise, it looks like sh%^$

        You’re wasting your time Tish.
        They won’t get it.

        Made me smile :-)
        -Made me jealous that I didn’t think of it first.

      hi maccers

      Listen you sound like a fun sort. At least you know what your uterus is for. That’s a good start

    at least they have finally started getting their hems done so they don’t look like 13 year olds wearing a suit for the first time

    All they seem to want to do is talk.
    Oh and of course get paid for it.
    I can’t wait to pay my next tax bill so I can help to facilitate their upcoming summer holidays.
    Shameless bunch of fools

    I am livid over this, according to what I heard on the radio we may STILL end up with Indah as Teasock, supported by Eamonn Ryan and Katherine Zappone. It just is NOT good enough. What’s the difference in attitude between Indah and Basher Al Assad? The people say go, and he says I’ll go when I feel like it – never. And don’t bring the war in Syria into it – it is the stubbornness and entitlement I’m commenting on. Be in no doubt that man and his party don’t seek to govern, they wish to RULE.
