    Fantastic to see those Thai kids and trainer being rescued. I hope to God they get them all out fast and they’re OK. Seems to have been a major input of volunteer expertise to the rescue effort which is great to see.

      It’s not often you see the words Thai boys in the media without lady between them.
      But a great story and the kid wearing the England shirt will hopefully be out in time for the Croatia game.

        Oooh, Ollie wants to be the equivalent of the hard yobs who wrecked the Ikea shop. Yer well ‘ard an’ edgy, like, Ollie. Now throw a brick at an ambulance and we might not like you but we’ll be forced to respeck yer ‘ard edginess, like a Guy Ritchie film or sumfink.

    Jacob Rees-Mogg is the true voice of Brexit Britain.
    This latest May fudge will fall at the first hurdle and that’s even before the EU reject it.
    Prepare for Hard Brexit.

      The guy moving his business to Ireland is the true voice of Sasamach? I guess that tells you all you need to know about how doomed it is. Britain’s only hope is that their Taoiseach actually has the spine to stand up to two faced bullies like Mogg.

      1. Ollie Cromwell

        JRM is merely articulating the views of the 17.4 million people who voted in favour of Brexit,the largest political mandate in British history.
        In what way is this being a two-faced bully ?
        Unlike the weasel-worded Irish politicians who ignored the will of the people in the first Lisbon Treaty and insisted they vote again to get the right result.
        It was a day of shame for the Irish and opened them up to international ridicule – cowed into submission by threats from a French dwarf later discredited by corruption and a thick Irish PM who admitted he hadn’t even read the Treaty.

        1. ReproBertie

          Trying to force through Sasamach at all costs while working to protect himself from the impact of it seems pretty two-faced to me.

          Ireland rejected Lisbon and then received concessions on taxation and neutrality, among other things, before a second referendum. That’s not bullying. That’s democracy in action.

          1. ReproBertie

            Preaching from a point of ignorance as usual?

            We kept our EU commissioner for a start.

          2. Ollie Cromwell

            And what has Phil Hogan ever done for Ireland except plunge his snout into the EU trough after the utter disaster of the water rates fiasco ?

          3. ReproBertie

            Move straw man you have introduced there. A bad commissioner is better than no commissioner. He can be replaced.

        2. milk teeth

          Not at all. JRM is an extremist and your a troll. 52% voted for Brexit but no way the majority of them voted for a hard brexit. Also 48% of people voted for remain, which would also be the biggest mandate if it had won and is a tiny margin.
          If the shoe was on the other foot there is no way GB would be perusing a hard remain, joining shenanigan and the euro now is there? And if a pro European stood up and said they should no one would listen to them.
          The only reason people listen to JRM is because the Tories don’t have a majority. I’m pretty sure the only reason they had that snap election was to take the power away from him.

    2. Ollie Cromwell

      David Davies resigns and May’s so-called Chequers victory is already in trouble.
      She’ll be gone before the Tory party conference.

      1. ReproBertie

        He’s a bungling fool and he’ll be no loss to May who can now appoint someone willing to work toward the soft Sasamach the EU has told her to sort out.

        It also adds to the general hilarity and disbelief of the EU27 watching the UK self destruct as they try to implement something that they were tricked into. There’s none of them have the spine to just come out and say that the whole Sasamach thing is a disastrous mistake which will damage their economy and further weaken their international standing.

      2. MaryLou's ArmaLite

        If May goes they could end up with a rat like Gove, a weasel like BoJo or a old commie fool like Corbyn. interesting times.

      1. ReproBertie

        Collapsing the government is probably their best option now. They have less than 4 months to get ready for the EU negotiations but it took 2 years to come up with a plan for Sasamach and it barely lasted a weekend. Davis is abandoning the Titanic at the first sight of the iceberg.

        1. Cian

          If you compare Brexit to Titanic; I’d say that the original vote 2 years ago was hitting the iceberg; the ship has been filling with water for the last 2 years and the captain has been busily rearranging the deckchairs. The passengers are still eating their dinners.
          If they want to save everyone they need a coherent plan so all lifeboats can be filled to capacity. And yes, Davis has just left on one of the lifeboats…. but the ship is sinking fast!

          1. Brother Barnabas

            all the main brexiteers are making contingency plans for when brexit goes arseup – rees-mogg is shifting his business interests out of the UK, lawson is covering his own arse with french residency and now davis.

            closest analogy is when the ruling class urged the plebs onwards to slaughter at somme, while staying out of danger themselves. it’ll be the same outcome again. treachery and stupidity in synchronised motion.

          2. Brother Barnabas

            i don’t know

            Jo many “millions” died at somme?

            (you’re being really pathetic, yep. I’ve been ignoring you out of pity so far… just so you know)

          3. Yep

            You’re ignoring me because you can’t admit to being wrong. Cheers for the pity.

            A million killed and wounded. So yeah, your analogy is spot on….

    The dogs on the street in Wexford know who killed Fiona Sinnott. But knowing and proving it are 2 different things. One day she’ll get justice and I hope that day is sooner rather than later.

    1. Sheik Yahbouti

      Well, why don’t these ‘dogs in the street’ tell the Police then? It would be a start. That sort of thing annoys me.

      1. Lilly

        I’m sure they have, and the Gardai know as well but they can’t prove it either. He acted quickly and seems to have got away with murder.

      1. Daisy Chainsaw

        I’m not going to risk a defamation suit for Broadsheet, or a ban for myself. Thanks all the same though. I believe there’s a documentary coming out and the family will name the person.

        1. Papi

          Charger, you’ve always been offensive, but now you’re mocking a dead child. You should be ashamed of yourself, if you knew how to.

          1. Ollie Cromwell

            I’m merely pointing out the absurdity of Murder She Wrote detectives on here claiming to know who the real killer is.
            Evidence and trials are what bring convictions not an armchair Sherlock Holmes.

  4. Catherine costelloe

    Fiona is not a fictional character in a book , Ollie. It won’t matter to her family whether she was strangled, beaten to death with a candelabra, or shot . They want her remains back and a stop to the emotional turmoil , that is severely impacting on their daily lives. Give them a choice, a conviction or remains back? Families of missing opt for remains back……it’s time families in the Republic are given the same as the murderers of the Disappeared….tell us where victim is and leave it at that.

    1. Ollie Cromwell

      ” Naming ” a “killer ” merely endangers any future trial should that person ever be charged.
      Presuming the police don’t have sufficient evidence to charge anyone at the moment I would imagine any future trial might well be on difficult ground anyway.
      If you want pitchfork justice go back a couple of centuries.

      1. Brother Barnabas

        quick, charger – still time to backtrack and divert attention. do one of your little-leo-verucca-and-brexit routines or a paddy-33rd team-world cup-little-face-against-the-window ones. or revert to type and start chucking patio furniture around.

        1. Nigel

          Quiet! After a display of rowdy yobbishess, mocking a dead person and a murdered child and kids in danger he must now ‘signal’ his ‘virtue’ to prove his racial superiority!

      2. Papi

        Charger, if you ever wondered, albeit unlikely, why people don’t like the English, go to a mirror and have a long hard look at yourself, boy.

        1. Ollie Cromwell

          If Irish people don’t like the English why do so many of them live in England ?
          If people in general don’t like the English why do so many of them want to migrate to England ?
          Dems de facts boyo.
          Get up off your knees and stop snivelling.

          1. Papi

            Would that be….jobs, charger? Cos it’s certainly not for company of the likes of you.
            The failed Empire.

          2. Papi

            And who is snivelling? I think you’re a reprehensible stain of a person, no snivels here. Or is that just your go-to defence? Aw, diddums,

      3. Catherine costelloe

        A future trial, Ollie? You will see a rocking horse do his business first I’m afraid.
