Is Broadsheet loading painfully slow for anyone else for the past week? Both on mobile and desktop?
Yeah on mobile it’s a disaster
I find I have to refresh mid load as it hangs (on the mobile). The refresh seems to jolt it into loading properly.
been wonky for ages on mobile
It’s as slow as Donal Óg Cusack admitting to the second worst kept secret about him. We all knew he did Woody “Poor Harvey” Allen for Tom Humphries. He should give the proceeds of his book Come What May to the RCC.
wow…Lysette Anthony the face of the 80’s….
I did not recognise her at all had to imdb
that Weinstein is some piece of work
I did some background reading on the Joshua Boyle episode, what an imbecile. Who brings their pregnant wife hiking in Afghanistan? After being rescued he refuses to board any US aircraft.
He seems like a right weirdo.
Was also married to a sister of a gitmo detainee.
Something odd about him alright.
Exactly! What an idiot! He was almost asking to be kidnapped. These deluded western types in extremely dangerous, hostile foreign countries, its almost like a turn on for them. What did he expect?!
In other news…
Don’t open your mouth about Islam if your gay in a US university… the regressive politically correct leftists won’t be having it.
And you’ll have to face a “behaviour intervention”
…if you say you don’t like Islamic countries for the way they treat gay people.
What the actual fupp is going on with this hyper regressive pc crap…. jaysus…
Mustn’t criticise Islam! Bizarre the lefts blindspot towards a group of ideas from the 7th century that should have no relevance today.
They brought out Amanda Brunker!!!! In a story that’s somehow related to the Weinstein story….and she won’t even name him!!!! That’s amazing.
You’ve been “brunkered”.
powerful American prick abuses his power and privilege.
we’re all liable.
Nope. Just the guy who abused and the people who covered it up.
My Harvey Weinstein moment
In the stand at the Michael Jackson gig
– the Pairc late 80s
A 2fm DJ “tripped”
Grabbed me boobies
With both hands the grubby tramp
And laughed “Cheap thrill”
Stupid knobend didn’t know what ta’make of the dig he got
He had a look across his face that almost threatened he’d report me
Tbf. The lad I was with called him a drunken disgrace, and his missus ( I think) dragged him along to his seat
A bitta banter followed him
Langers laughing at the posh dub thinking he’d be allowed score in the Pairc so easily
Never thought of it till now
I’ve just googled him there now
He’s still alive and in his 70s
Damn you Amanda
I’m going to need therapy
And an exclusive
every single thing, including entirely unrelated stories of horrific sexual predation, that happens in the news or elsewhere has to be about you in some way does’t it?
What a dose!
So where is my exclusive
I like the new hat btw Snortie
And my make over !!!!
She’s a barely literate egomaniac. Be sure to check out her column about a baking show!
I’m familiar with her ouevre as well as her peccadillos
Ah look Bertie
Ye’re all very alert for a Sunday morning
They seem to still believe that we aren’t caricatures.
The funniest part is that they think we’d rather be like them.
Yeah, I know… ‘Staggering levels of audacity’ is an understatement.
Thanks for your support. It’s appreciated but you know it’s unnecessary.
I can make eejits out of them by meself.
I say ‘by meself’…
In fairness it’s them who do most of it.
You may miss it because it’s hidden up the top, but Donal Óg Cusack is the sportsman who wrote the character reference for Tom Humphries.
Will RTE continue to employ him?
We should form a Twitter mob and get him sacked.
It’s all over Twitter
And it’s not going well for the Óg’ Ego
Sports Des kicked it off last night
Plenty of us knew t’was him
They go way back in cahoots together
Is it ever appropriate to write a letter outlining the character of a person, even if they’ve been convicted of a terrible crime?
That’s a serious question/dilemma.
I’m not sure I could. But doesn’t a court need to know if the convict – apart from their crime – is a good egg or a monster.
After their carry on during the last Cork Strike and Humphries using the Irish Times as a propaganda machine for him; why is it any surprise the Óg Egó would be standing up for him now
Objections to their partnership were thin on the ground then.
No media outlet cried foul over their partnership
And nobody had a problem with the Óg being given high profile mentoring work or Media work since
Not even the GRA
So everyone complaining now is typical
And Hook ‘esque
I’m delighted to see so many finally having something to say about Donal Ógs relationship with the convicted Paedo
He’s not convicted yet
Do you want to swap out of that hat quickly
Before anyone notices
You’ve still time I’d say
He has been covicted, having pleaded guilty to SOME charges, and will be sentenced later this month. What are you talking about?
He has been convicted. Not sentenced.
You never see letters outlining the character if the outlining paints a negative picture. As the writer would probably be subpoenaed by the prosecution to testify. Which should also mean that letter writers like Cusack should be subpoenaed to appear for questioning and validation of their claims.
He’s not convicted yet
A moot point; he has pleaded guilty.
He pleaded guilty & will be sentenced next month.
It’s not a moot point
Whatever. If you’re expecting him to be acquitted, you could be in for a disappointment.
What sort of a wacko comment is that? I’m merely pointing out that once he is convicted you can then all say “he’s a convicted man”. Until then he is an innocent man. That’s how our system of justice works here.
Warden. What part of – I’m guilty me lord – do you not understand.
Ever the pedant. Okay, he’s an innocent man who has pleaded guilty. Does that satisfy you.
Sorry, I didn’t really realise you were a troll with resting bithc face on until now.
Take your point Topsy, but the lad was booked into John of Gods shortly after, if it was any other poor oul craythur in those circumstances we could not be so quick to judge, let he who is without sin and etc.
Wandered Off Snot… yeah YOU!
You might have your whole life ahead of you, and you’ll ALWAYS definitely have your Internet-History behind you. FOREVER….
People actually READ the comments on Broadsheet. I’m not messing.
This is what I tell my own children.
I’m not the boss of you.
I’m not even your real step dad.
My earlier comment… la, la lahhh…
It implies a good few things in two sentences.
I would explain further but I don’t write columns for Broadsheet.
And when he is, what will the one liner be then?
You can’t even say ‘The calm before the storrrm’ immediately after three devastating hurricanes, waving your tiny little hands about and proclaiming that a ‘free’ Press is a ‘bad’ Press without being called a dick(tator).
This is the calm.
There will be a storm.
Followed by a Universal calm.
This puppet has strings in many places, many many places.
Those strings are tangled today, but tomorrow….
So many strings…
The longest strings you could think of, but longlier….
Snorty – Humphreys was convicted after entering a guilty plea at his last court hearing – the court then went on to hear a victim impact statement, which only occurs after (repeat: after) the accused has been convicted. Humphries is a guilty, convicted child abuser who is currently in prison awaiting sentencing.
He is not ‘an innocent man’ – and your understanding of how the court system works is wrong – plain stupid and 100% wrong.
We’ve seen you give your half-learned opinion on several other occasions so-called Fact Checker, you have no authority here.
I have every right to come on here and correct your egregious and uninformed errors if I so choose. Thanks.
Character references should have no place in a court case. An eight-year-old knows that people are a mixture of good and bad. Judges should rule on the facts of the case before them and not be swayed by the fact that the accused once helped a blind man across a busy road.
Utter gibberish. When sentencing judges always take into account the character of the accused, whether this incident is the latest of many similar, had there been a predilection for similar misconduct previously etc, or was this an isolated case. Like any other form of evidence the judge can then choose whether or not to ignore or disregard the impact of it in making their decisions.
…and their background too
like if they come from well heeled stock resident in Dalkey for example
@Warden — Your tone is recognisable, so save yourself the trouble of constantly changing your name.
If only Warden of the snort could be on broadsheet more often, his comments are a joy to behold, so penetrating and insightful..
You mean like guys claiming pizzagate is real or that the recent attacks by the shooter in Texas were a hoax, right?
Tom Humphrey’s is your hero..
keep on trucking champ..
Tell us again how a man shooting several people stone dead in a mass shooting is a joke and a hoax, go on we’re all dying to hear your theories
Tom Humphreys apologist..
keep on trucking champ
Don’t know what you’re referring to Lilly, I have every right to come on here and correct your egregious and uninformed errors if I so choose. Thanks.
Egregious and uninformed errors? Heh heh, projection much. See Fact Checker above, but grab your smelling salts before you start scrolling. See you back here for your slice of humble pie.
Yeah Fact Checker is the boss of broadsheet – all rise when Fact Checker enters.
Face it Lilly you were wrong about not allowing character references, just plain wrong.
Even a four year old would know that the character of the accused is a fundamental tenet of the legal system during sentencing,.
You really are a fool Warden (or whatever you’re calling yourself tonight). I ventured an opinion on an accepted practice that I don’t agree with. It’s not a question of right or wrong – although I doubt that’s something you can grasp.
Have you gobbled that humble pie so soon, here have another slice.
Lilly he is dead right, Fact checker is wrong
Even a guilty man can have his sentence set aside
The Court of Appeal has set aside a man’s 12-year sentence for possession of drugs worth more than €4 million in a case which raised an “important question” regarding construction of the Misuse of Drugs Act, as amended.
Stephen Geraghty (50), Neilstown Drive, Clondalkin, had pleaded guilty to possession of cannabis worth over €4 million for sale or supply at Nutstown, Clonee, on November 27th, 2003, and possession of €350,000 worth of cocaine for sale or supply the following year.
He began grooming that girl when she was just 14. I don’t care if he gave a kidney to a stranger – or similar heroic deed – beforehand. I hope he gets the full 10 years.
@PK Wife — Yes, I know a guilty verdict can be set aside on appeal. But that doesn’t make TH innocent right now.
“Half baked paedo apologist” is a slight exaggeration though is it not? The lad is just stating his opinion same as yourself
Ah yeah, I have been known to get carried away once in a while :)
@ warden, are you employed by the defence, or do you have a particular interest – just wondering like.
Neither Topsy. I have a particular interest in the fact that people want to name and shame without knowing anything of the mental state of the accused.
You rugged individualist.. fighting for justice worldwide
keep on trucking champ..
Terrible alright that a child sex abuse conviction should come with a certain amount of naming and shaming. My heart bleeds for your sensibilities.
Looking at the headlines and the news that consumes our attention, I feel that the current cycle of outrage to outrage can’t hold. What we knew only becomes outrageous when we name it. Then it will be a frenzy, and soon pass on. Are things any better for the jews since Kevin Myers was sacked, for rape victims after George, for wannabe starlets after Harvey, for Silicon valley females after Dave Mc Clure. No better than they are for refugees after Aylan Kurdi’s pic. People will just be more careful calculating and bide their time. No nature has actually been changed, just vapid and vain lashings of hate from both sides.
Pop will eat itself. Its going nowhere. No enlightenment, in fact Id say entrenchment. For all the virtues that are being called out, the world is becoming darker. Trump, Brexti, Putin, Erdogan. interesting that the more the sugar candied version of the world is being touted, the opposite is what is manifesting. And its not about what is right or wrong, its just human nature.
Journalist Alison o Reilly has won “Mum of the Year” . Sunday Times report as well as adopting a child from Ethiopia , she is a foster parent and legal guardian to a number of teenagers. She has been taking care of a child with severe special needs, taking a 120 mile hospital daily trip to Dublin for treatment.
Bravo Ms o Reilly.
What u conviently omitted is that O’ Reilly works for the Irish Daily Mail – the major competition sponsor. Now fancy that.
Ghostbusters II Film4 now :)
Is everyone here on the rag or something?
Its like a bag of ferrets on acid got loose in here and decided they meant business.
Couldn’t have put it better myself Ms M; totally lost the run of themselves.
Lol Mildred! It’s pre-hurricane tension :)
really cant be arsed reading all of that but I reckon everyone should just meet at 1pm tommorow on Dun Laoighre pier to sort things out.
Count me in . I will be wearing my dirty mac and nothing else. Swinging in the wind. Mildred, darling, how will I know tis thee?
Oh you’ll know me when you see me. I’ll be in full battle regalia.
Wear your wellies. I hear tell it’s to be wet.
Eh sorry but it is all blokes scrapping like yippy terriers in a confined space.
All blokes apart from the women.
So all blokes then /rolls eyes
clampers / badmemes / bertie / nigel / milo / harry / warden and newjusin … all blokes. More than one of them at least is the same person.
Frilly – claims to be a woman. riothe – doesn;t like women.
Yeah… let;s blame women…. if there are actially any of them left reading after that embarassing w.@nkfest over the weekend
Snortie and Pat’s wife are wimmin. I have never heard any man say “resting bicth face”.
Again, without actually reading all that shte, lily appears to be a woman.
But sure blame all men.
As for me not liking women, I’m not going to change whatever notion you have but I can say i don’t like you for sure. Are you a woman?
not blaming ALL men – stop being a low rent melodramatic villain in a cheap play.
made the point that the “characters” who were willy waggling all weekend were all blokes apart from one who claims to be a a woman.
I was yesterday, and not in today’s
Just sayin’ ;)
fair enough clampers but the main point still remains.
someone says something
the subject is argued in tangents of what is said and what is implied
— old arguments dredged up
— cast of 10s akin to Clerys mens dept. amount of sockpuppets turn up
— point scoring begins
— anyone with half a brain runs a mile
Anyone looking in from the outside thinks “the site is full of plonkers”
Frilly was one of the main instigators lads
Warden of the snot was actually..
I am all these people. And you. Also, a dog.
which of the weekend scrappers are women?
Donal Own Goal Cusack. Must have been waiting for Terry Prone to find a slot for him after her “rehabilitation” love in on RTÉ.
Be interesting to see when Humphries finished ghost writing for him
It’d be gas if some of us here were going to die because of the hurricane
and what we post here will be the last record of our activity on this earth; the concluding signature, emblematic of what we did in this life;
a final impression which our loved ones will come to visit
and ultimately cling to for certainty as the memory of you fades.
So schools,college,creches and other work places will be empty tomorrow. Yet the local pubs will be packed.
How will they know it’s you? There has to be more than one amorphous blob in Kerry.
When will it be Monday?
Broadsheet commentors need an avenue* for their narcissism.
This weekend stuff is too incestious.
