    So the Irish Times leads with a photo of the painting which was estimated at 800 euro and sold for 120k and captions the photo ‘Auction Mystery’. The mystery is that the auction took place in Dublin on Sunday afternoon and is only appearing in the Irish Times tomorrow. Does nobody work on Sundays? New editor? yeah, right.

      Well I hope they come back and tell us why people thought it was worth so much in any case

      …well @objective…you’ve answered your own question…nobody does work on the sabbath at the Irish Times on a sunday because the trust that dictates editorial are fiercely christian. Expect any pretext for insinuating some kind of religious iconography onto the front page for the remainder of ‘holy week’. They maintain a whole religious department. Occassionly the mask slips and they get over zealous…look at Rosita Boland and her attempted whitewash of the Tuam babies scandal…

        What are you scuttering on about… IT was traditionally the Protestant newspaper. They have one religion correspondent (who spends much of his time reporting on scandals within the Catholic Church), Breda O’Brien (who I kind of enjoy reading in a masochistic way), and then the little ‘Rite and Reason’ bit.

          …ah good morning Bog_R…the shills are on the go early this morning. How did I know you would be a Breda O’Brien fan…last time I looked the IT was indeed a protestant paper but sure there isn’t much difference these days between the prods and you catholics…they even let them into Trinity these days…truely, nothing is sacred…(except the IT Trust)

            Not buying into your weird conspiracy theory does not make one a Catholic – any other assumptions you want to leap to while you are at it?

          “What are you scuttering on about”

          Weren’t you lecturing someone the other day on how to have a civilised discussion?

          1. Rob_G

            I think that is perfectly inline with civilised discussion; I didn’t attack the poster personally, merely his/her ideas.

          2. MoyestWithExcitement

            Asking someone what they’re “scuttering” on about it is civilised? So “civilised” means whatever you want it to mean now. Good to know.

    delighted for the ex-Clerys workers to see yer wan that owns Natrium having her wings clipped.

    hopefully we never see likes of that stroke being pulled ever again in this country.

      Pretty mild there, friend. Dishonest and disgusting machinations of a dead empire, which has never hesitated to do the absolutely unprintable. You are too kind.
