    News as entertainment.

    Let’s get real. People working in the media are there for a paycheck. Morals and ethics are a distant second to satisfying the advertisers. Let get real. I’m so real. Maybe too real. Real. You even real M8?

    i was on the ferry home from England Tuesday night and there was a UK Daily Mail lying about.

    You’ve not seen partisan reporting until you’ve actually read it. Whilst this stuff here is terrible, it’s not a patch on Quentin Letts…

    We’re getting there, mind.

    Da Sundagh Worrrltd (worse paper ever), the Daily Heil and another DOB creature?? Yes, I utterly condemn the right of public protest and I call for the death penalty for all who engage in it. Would yiz ever fupp off. Talk about sore losers.

    They’re not that far off about Murphy. He’s as vile and inept as any of the FG, FF, labour lackies and in it for the personal gain in the long run. He’s just chosen one side over another is all.

    At least Joe Higgins whom I had a love hate relationship with actually believed in his convictions

      1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

        Yup. Joe had a sincerity that (I think) is lacking in Paul Murphy.

        Joe is a hero of mine. He didn’t lie, he never wavered, he remained true to his principles to the end of his political career.

    Let’s not forget that the protestors were compared to the so-called Islamic State in the Dáil, by a FG TD..Noel Coonan…”Nip that in the Bud”

    1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

      Were they? A perfectly cromulent comparison. I must move to that guy’s constituency so I can vote for him.

    In fairness that Sunday World cover makes it look as if the guy has the most amazing water pistol EVER.

    Yeah, this sh#te worked on Corbyn. The people who buy these rags are dying off, in droves.
