    Theresa May has united the remainers and brexiteers…against her. Tis no wonder she looks so forlorn in that pic. Interesting times, indeed.

      Boris’s bother resigns then calls for a fresh referendum. More twists and turns than a fiddler’s elbow.

          Neither did I but media is media.

          Back in the day we all assumed Daniel O’Donnell was gay except we now know that he is on the more srt8 end of the bisexual spectrum.

            MajODo is well able to handle herself, she knew full well what she signed up for. I very much doubt if she reads the OAP troll comments on Broadsheet.

          i once played boules with him. he’s an ok fellow, actually. a lot more modest, thoughtful and generally quieter than his boorish brother.

    Why is Rathkeale expecting Mayhem at Christmas? Is Imelda May playing a gig? Surely you wouldn’t need a massive garda presence for one of those concerts.

    The new GDP figures out this week put the UK above all other EU countries in the G7 in terms of GDP growth quarter-on-quarter.
    France’s growth rate has halved on last year’s Q3 numbers, and German growth is also expected to halve from 0.8% last year to just 0.4%.
    On average Eurozone growth was a dismal 0.2%, a new four year low. The rest of the world is experiencing much stronger growth.
    The Bank of England is warning that the UK economy is nearing full capacity and it may have to raise interest rates.
    So much for Project Fear 2:0

      Of course she is.
      Wait until the President Husband and 5 years later President Wife thing becomes the norm here though.

      Well, there was a reason why Obama was so forefront in the mid terms. Not sure she has the type of character to take Trump on mind.

          From your link Venessa,

          … women, people of color, and young people are doing the heavy lifting. The big question on the table is what does that mean for 2020?…

          … the argument that Democrats need to nominate a custodial figure who is going to be inoffensive to a wide swath of the electorate, because we need to play for the general election, win over independents, and be inoffensive to Republicans and get some crossover votes—I don’t think that’s going to carry the day in 2020.

          1. SOQ

            I expect there will be no Dem superstar myself, at least not for a year while they shine a light on the obvious. After that they can go one of two ways, female black gay etc or white str8 male. Optics are all important so whichever packs the most votes.

    Very respectful minute’s silence at Twickers for Remberance Day weekend.
    Tremendous work by the Royal British Legion in raising funds by selling the Poppy.
    They’re raised more than a pound for every second since the end of the First World War.

      Base Details
      If I were fierce, and bald, and short of breath,
      I’d live with scarlet Majors at the base,
      And speed glum heroes up the line to death.
      You’d see me with my puffy petulant face,
      Guzzling and gulping in the best hotel,
      Reading the Roll of Honour. ‘Poor young chap,’
      I’d say—‘I used to know his father well.
      Yes, we’ve lost heavily in this last scrap.’
      And when the war was done and youth stone dead,
      I’d toddle safely home and die — in bed.
      Sassoon

        If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood
        Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,
        Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud
        Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues,—
        My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
        To children ardent for some desperate glory,
        The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est
        Pro patria mori.

    I never realised in any constitution you had the right to unbelievable compensation for insurance claims

    Here is a link to the memo/dossier Trump/Pence put out on Dennis O’Brien,they are both speakers at the same conf next week-RTE refused upon ‘legal advice’ to carry it-have a great time with Mike,Dennis….

    -In 2013, O’Brien Won A Defamation Claim Against A Paper That Covered His Earthquake Relief Efforts
    -“In August, He Threatened To Sue A Satirical Website, Waterford Whispers, For Running A Spoof Item About O’Brien. The Post Was Duly Taken Down.
    -O’Brien Sued The Parliamentary Committee That Cleared The MP Who Criticized Him For His Banking Arrangements.
    -“The Sale Of The Company To O’Brien Therefore Cost The Irish Taxpayer €110 Million.”
    -The Irish Criminal Assets Bureau Will Be Interviewing O’Brien Over The Moriarty Tribunal’s Findings After Gathering “Further Material” About The Matter.
    -The Moriarty Tribunal Described O’Brien’s Transactions Were “Demonstrably Referable To The Acts And Conduct Of Mr. Lowry.
