Staying in?

Broadsheet on the Telly returns tonight at 10pm streaming LIVE above and on our YouTube channel.

Join old pals, surprise guests and domestic pets for a couple of hours of quality ‘natter’ and brazen ‘chit-chat’.

Matters grappled will include: Brexit, Irish Water, curtsying to British Royalty, more INM hackery, and further Disclosures Tribunal loose ends and shenanigans with Olga.

PLUS  join the show’s increasingly crowded ‘mosh-pit’ where feats of real-time verbal crowd surfing are performed in an intimate, sweat-drenched setting.

Some bollicky swearing.

Sorry.

    Before anyone pontificates on Brexit this evening remember one thing – at this precise moment Theresa May does not have sufficient votes in Parliament to pass her Brexit plans even if,as is unlikely,the European Union will accept them.
    Hard Brexit is more likely than it has ever been – and May will be gone within months.
    Varadkar has backed the wrong horse and missed a significant opportunity to form a joint Anglo-Irish approach to Brexit that would have yielded real benefits for the island of Ireland.
    He will be hung out to dry by Druncker and the rest when crunch time comes.
    It’s as if Ireland never learned from the banking crisis.

        The head of HMRC – you know,the people who actually collect taxes – has said it is perfectly possible to have a border-free Ireland in the event of a Hard Brexit.
        May chose to ignore this and pursue her ludicrous Brexit plan which the EU will reject and which is opposed by Labour,a significant chunk of her party and the people who voted for Brexit.
        Without doubt the worst British PM in living memory and that includes Gordon Brown.
        Early polls show her haemorrhaging popularity from an already low base.
        She’s a goner.

          You obviously have strong opinions on the subject Oille so how likely do you personally think that ‘a border-free Ireland in the event of a Hard Brexit’ actually is?

          Most likely

          Either way

          Now where did I bury that…

            Well Britain has said it has no intention of having a border.
            And Ireland says it doesn’t want one.
            So that just leaves Ireland’s masters the EU to decide.
            See what happens when you throw your lot in with the organisation that shafted this country over the bondholders instead of forging an alliance with your most important ally.
            Personally I reckon 100% no border – the trade across it is miniscule and easily monitored without one.
            It’s a red herring thrown down by the EU and gobbled up hook,line and sinker by Varadkar.

            I don’t mean to be rude but you have been educated into stupidity sweetheart. Hard Brexit = Hard border in Ireland and that is not going to happen again, ever.

            No deal means the backstop kicks in an the north remains in the customs union. Ye can argue among yourselves where the border will be but it wont be on this island, ollie.

      Since you obviously have all the answers surely its only a matter of time until you are invited to lead the negotiations.

      Unfortunately,based on their record, I can’t offer you the same hope for the Boys in Green.
      But then you already know that don’t you ?
      Now I really must be off to find an ambulance to trash.

    They’ll be singing this in the pubs iofDublin tonight – not that you’ll see the clip on the RTE news of the old soak being held up by two people.

    ” He’s coming home,he’s coming hone, Druncker’s coming home ”

    Imagine if Varadkar or May were so drunk at a summit they had to be held up – it would be all over the media.
    The hypocrisy of the Establishment bottom-bandit media.

    Never mind trying to imagine that – imagine the tangerine dream having to go to London to advise the greasy hooers on post brexit trading…England’s on skid row, Charger, accept it, no need for any more of your bluster and bluff.

    It’s over when your country is eagerly awaiting direction from caricature, case shut.

      It’s weird how common sense has gone flying out the window over there. Their nearest neighbours supply most of the fresh food. Any delay will result in most either being frozen of tinned, and that is not even considering the impact on manufacturing. It’s like the east Belfast loyalists have taken over the entire country.

        They’ve locked themselves into such a tight corner and have been grappling with reality and for relevance – for quite some time now. Since the Brexit vote in May 2016, the pound has dropped 12% against the euro and 5% against the US dollar, yet they still think they have worldly clout and position.

        ‘The Empire’ is no more, last one out switch the light off…

          “This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
          This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
          This other Eden, demi-paradise,
          This fortress built by Nature for herself
          Against infection and the hand of war,
          This happy breed of men, this little world,
          This precious stone set in the silver sea,
          Which serves it in the office of a wall
          Or as a moat defensive to a house,
          Against the envy of less happier lands,–
          This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.”

    “This fortress built by nature for herself against infection and the hand of war”
