          But it isn’t funny, “Tony”. A trolling opportunity for you can also be a very serious matter for a real human being. Do you see the problem?

    it’s weird seeing the children that wouldnt exist if abortion on demand was legal campaign for abortion on demand, guess they’re pulling up the ladder behind them

      How do you know they wouldn’t exist if there was abortion on demand? Are the populations where abortion on demand is available on the verge of extinction?

      You have chosen a very suitable name, dearie. Norman was a REAL mysogynist – one who was prepared to act! – is that you, Norman?

      1. Daisy Chainsaw

        Didn’t Norman have sexual relations with his mother?

        That would explain a lot about this one too.

        You have to buy a subscription to comment on the Irish Times, so they come here and troll for free.

      Its the Trump effect? The racists have taken courage from his victory and are alt righting all over the place.

      I ‘m with you Ricky. You find a forum that’s fun, modern, and just occasionally discussion issues which might be regarded as vaguely ‘political’. Hours later the FG ‘frape room’ people arrive and that’s effectively the end of the forum. It happened to the Journal, although they still remain good numbers, but as a forum for actual debate – forget it. This is the Brave New World.

      That’s just daft. Why not just use humour and satire to take the michael out of a tiresome bunch of reactionary gender/identity politics dinner party Prada Meinhof shower of Prosecco-drinking D6/D8 ladygardens who have nothing but contempt for real people anyway?

      A black jumper with REPEAT would be good.
