      One of the original members committed suicide not long after they achieved fame. The band went quiet for a long time after that.

      Dermot would never put a dampener on it. He would put a mezzanine level and a generous cube shaped extension on it.

        Funny. I was out for a walk on Sunday and looked over the Dodder at the back of a 4-bed semi d that had been Dermot Bannon-ed to the hilt. It had a huge cube-shaped extension.

        Pet peeve: architects who claim they revolutionised your living space by adding light. Installing large double glazed windows that simply didn’t exist when the house was originally built because matierials technology in glass has advanced so much and the cost has come down is not their doing, but they looove taking credit for it.

        Great joke. By taking the footprint of the original period comment and then opening it up in an unexpected way you’ve really expanded upon the possibilities and introduced a lot of light.

    no doubt Mary Lou will be told what to say, how to say and not move off message by the council that runs her party from the shadows.

      Don’t pretend all politicians don’t do this.

      No doubt Tubs will find the backbone that mysteriously goes missing when Leo/Bertie/Biffo et al. are on.

      Instead of accepting the fluffy answer that sidesteps the awkward question that was actually asked, he’ll unleash his inner Vincent Browne and push a little harded.

    Graham Norton does a better show and that will be on bbc one at 10:30pm.

    But obviously you can’t give this information an actual full column. It’s not cynical and ironic. I can wear a leather jacket as I type it, would that help?
