    £235k for Sir Cliff seems a tad on the paltry side for what he’s been through, whatwith the BBC News helicopters filming the raid on his home. I’d have asked from the BBC £1Bn, then negotiated from there, maybe I should be a lawyer, clearly I am not. Good luck to Cliff, it’s one of those things that will always taint. “We’re all going on a summer holiday” – I think I can whistle/sing that freely now. (To be fair £235k isn’t paltry to me.)

      No Shayna you’d make a terrible lawyer, you have ethics.

      Time for my lawyer joke so. They don’t like this one so I tell it at every opportunity.

      A lawyer goes out fishing on a boat with his friend. He trips and falls overboard and as his friend struggles to pull him in, three sharks begin to circle. The lawyer shouts something at them and they disperse. When he got back into the boat his friend asked him what did he said and he replied “I told them I was a lawyer”.

      His friend looks confused so the lawyer said “professional courtesy?”

      What was the BBC thinking? It’s normally quite conservative. Shattering indeed for Cliff Richard, just because he’s a bit weird looking doesn’t mean he’s a paedo.

        You find English accents grating yet you regularly watch the BBC ?
        You’re a sucker for punishment.
        Or just a sucker.

          there aren’t too many typical english accents on the bbc – unless you’re watching match of the day

      …look on the bright side Shayna…at least Cliff’s daily prayer explains the dismal performance of the Tyrone team in recent years…bigger name on the other line…

        Cliff Richard has entertained millions of fans for 50 years. He has never hidden his Christian beliefs. The BBC, and several newspapers, overstepped a mark when they publicised allegations (never pressed after a police investigation) about his character. Cliff was traumatized by the smears on his integrity and was quite right to pursue the matter in court. I’d say the Beeb got off with a light rap on the knuckles.

        It’s where practicing homosexuals scream from rooftops and then they become perfect at it so they don’t need to practice anymore.

        Your welcome.

    Aaaaannnnnnddddd another lie from the Liar Leo. 1000 new border staff? Mo poulaphuca. And from what I read above, Varadkar has no clue what to do. except to ‘hope’
    And this. folks, is what passes as a leader of a Country these days.

      Ohhhh GiggidyGopPoo
      yesterday you went on a rant because they were not advertising posts for customs agents, today you are ranting because they are advertising the posts.

      you are nothing but a gutter snip.

      1. Giggidygoo

        So, where are the posts advertised babeee? Leo the Liar has been caught out at every turn. Backstop? ROFL.
        By the way, please explain why he would advertise for customs ‘agents’? You really haven’t much of a clue.

    Haha, John S Doyle ‘it says in de papers’ on Morning Ireland dropped the piece about a photographer just happening to be waiting in the wings to capture Eoghan Murphy running along a beach in his boxers from an earlier bulletin!

    Little Leo up on his hind legs floating that old canard about UK planes not flying in the event of no deal.
    Oooooooh,the threat.
    Perhaps he should be worrying about flying across the Atlantic to cosy up to his chum Justin.
    The Shanwick Oceanic Control area covers the entire airspace to the west of Ireland.
    It is managed by the UK.
    He might also want to explain how he plans to transport Ireland’s exports to the UK and the rest of Europe in the event of Hard Brexit.
    Ireland is being badly let down by this man of straw at perhaps the most important time in its history since,well the banking crisis.

      “He might also want to explain how he plans to transport Ireland’s exports to the UK and the rest of Europe in the event of Hard [Sasamach]”

      I know it’s hard to focus given the constantly mutating shambles in your homeland but do try to keep up. This sort of thing was addressed months ago (despite their being NO plan).

      “It is hoped its size will allow hundreds of thousands of additional tonnes of freight go to and from the Continent each year, bypassing Britain and the border controls and paperwork that may be inevitable if a hard [Sasamach] becomes a reality.

      Addressing a crowd of several hundred people, largely from the shipping and business communities in Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands, the Taoiseach stressed the importance of shipping routes and investment in the infrastructure needed for their expansion.

      [Chief executive of Dublin Port Eamonn O’Reilly] said that post-[Sasamach], Celine and ships like it would create more direct routes into mainland Europe and allow Irish exporters to completely circumvent the UK land bridge.”

      1. Ollie Cromwell

        You think ONE ferry is going to pick up the slack to transport the huge amount of goods that currently goes via the UK ?
        You are even dumber than I thought.

        1. ReproButina

          You call me dumb and yet you missed the “and ships like it” part of the post as well as the bit about ” the Taoiseach stressed the importance of shipping routes and investment in the infrastructure needed for their expansion.”

          Since you have trouble understanding long sentences try this: Bigger ships and expanded shipping routes. We defeat the Sasamach customs chaos by bypassing it.

          You spend a lot of time telling us how clueless and unprepared we are so you must be streets ahead. How is Britain preparing for the queues at customs?

      2. Giggidygoo

        The both of you are talking through your dual donkeys. If a hard Brexit occurs, the methods of transport will remain in place. Goods will still be transported to the UK, and through the UK to Europe in sealed vehicles under a T2 or T1 document, or under a TIR Carnet. If an EFTA type agreement emerges, then an EUR 1 or EUR 2 could be introduced. Read up on how movement of goods through a 3rd country operates instead of trying to give the impression you actually know something.

        1. ReproButina

          There are plans in place to bypass the UK and ship directly to mainland Europe.

          These would be part of the plans you say don’t exist.

          Maybe you should do a bit of reading up yourself.

        2. ReproButina

          Only if, as part of Sasamach, the UK pulls out of the Common Transit Convention will we end up under the TIR Convention which would mean all carriers need to be approved before Sasamach in order to ship goods via the UK, which would include goods travelling from Donegal to Cavan via Northern Ireland, and then re-approved every two years.

          Best case scenario would be if the UK stays in the CTC meaning every importer bringing goods through the UK would only need to be approved as authorised consignees and, of course, would need a Temporary Storage Operator until the goods pass through customs.

          Both options present a bit of a headache but a minor one compared to the queues that can be expected at British ports, and European ports for ships arriving from the UK, post Sasamach which will add massive delays to goods going through the UK and make shipping directly to mainland Europe a more attractive option.

    1. Nigel

      if so, according to you, the UK has been whipped out of the EUwith no deal because the Tories couldn’t out-negotiate a drunk. Sure that’s the narrative you want to go with?

      1. Giggidygoo

        With friends like them, that forced Ireland to bear the brunt of the losses for the gambling European banks, who need enemies?
        There’s an attempt to use Ireland as some sort of pawn in the Brexit negotiations. Do you really think that an island of five million, that isn’t flavour of the day as regards sweetheart tax deals and that really hasn’t much to offer, is the EU’s concern?

  5. Ollie Cromwell

    I wonder which government lackey was put in charge of keeping an eye on Drunkers drinking when he was last in Dublin cheering on the loyal Irish lickspittles.
    Varadkar: ” Right lads,one of us has to stay on the dry today because old Drunkcer is in town and you know he’s even more fond of the sauce than us .Coveney,you’re a squeaky clean bore, you’ll do.”
