        Appearing with one of the most hated figures in America before his court case in NYC may not be the wisest of moves.

          Don’t worry, he’ll probably have plenty of court cases in his life. He’ll have other opportunities to look better before hand.

    I see the UK titles didn’t include any coverage of Limerick’s historic win. That’s just typical, so ’tis!

      yeah I was looking at videos of the carnage in Bastille shot from my pals building
      the French in question are lads from the Banlieue who take any opertunity of this kind of crowd and mayhem to trash a city they feel they don’t belong to
      You can’t actually go to their neighbourhoods to arrest them either if you are a cop, you’ll get a brick in the head

        there is a massive social divide between these second and third generation French communities who live in impoverished depressing wastelands that surround one of the most beautiful cities in the world,

          I don’t know – probably this time, yes, but plenty of times middle-class kids have protests that descend into looting and throwing stuff at the police.

            well there is an element in that situation of a bourgeois nique la police attitude
            don’t forget the police are fairly working class and to generalise not perceived to be a particularly pleasant bunch, mind you you’d have to have your head examined to want to be a police man in France, tough job

            well it’s second third generation of immigrants so in many cases happen to not be white but to be honest I feel race is not so much the issue as lack of opportunity,
            you don’t see successful second generation footballers or nurses or whatever trashing the place because of their race

            interestingly though in my experience the most overt racist views I encountered came from the so called higher échelons of society mainly because past their cleaner they have no interaction with regular Joe/ Abdul

      The only question that I have is, how come McG didn’t get drenched like all the rest of them ? He could do with a cold shower !!
