    UCD’s turned out to be quite the white elephant. Guzzling through the cash. No stopping it. As the Jesuits used to say, you can’t put a price on education. And sure if it all goes belly up, it’s not the administrators’ problem whose higher purpose is a bigger house or a newer car. Sure the new Chinese middle classes have an insatiable demand for “Western education”, and lots of second/third tier universities are tapping in to that market, but “Western education” may not always be fashionable and what’s for sale may not always be desirable from a quality:cost point of view.

        – Who did you think it was? How could you not already know?

          Sorry. That was a horrible thing to do.
          It’s not Jah Wobble.

          It’s Shakin’ Stevens.

    Fair fecks to the Walloons, the only people with the nous to see the trap that is CETA (and ttip) – and the balls to defeat it, however temporarily.

      Good call.
      – Did you know that Killing Joke are playing The Academy next Sunday and I haven’t got a ticket?

    You should have changed that last line to
    …So Mr. Mod-R-8-R, F.U.

    You need to engage with the kids. Show them some ‘respect’. Speak their lingo.
    – No wonder you’re in moderation. You’re old.

    Aw c’mon Sheik ‘n’ Vac… Did you really have to add ‘however temporarily‘ to the end of that?
    – I think the French word for it is ‘deflation’, but I don’t know what it means.

    Not making the Irish news cycle but, an independent report into media ownership in Ireland has concluded that….

    Ireland has one of the most concentrated media markets of any democracy.

    The report concludes that there is a perfect storm created by the combination of the highly concentrated Irish media market along with shortcomings in the Irish defamation regime…… Taken together, these features threaten news plurality and undermine the media’s ability to perform its vital watchdog function.

      That was the main point in the USC, according to Lenihan. That everyone should contribute something, no matter how small.
