      “The authentic voice of Real Brexit.”

      Very well put pollie, the buffoon in chief marching his fellow buffoons up to the top of the hill….

      “And when they were up, they were up,
      And when they were down, they were down,
      And when they were only half-way up,
      They were neither up nor down”

      Thanks Wollie, tea all over my screen now. Robust Irish tea, not that insipid wee that you English drink.

      Haha vintage is right bunch of men make a mess, leg it, leave it for a woman to tidy while they hoot and whine from a safe distance. Very old fashioned.

    1. Clampers Outside!

      Aye… that whole shower o’ muppets following the focused cool of Peter O’Mahony …Jaysus :)

      1. Clampers Outside!

        … although, I’d give Keith Duffy a pass on being a muppet. He’s a good skin, most level headed, down to earth, I think. Hope he was last night… I clicked after Peter :)

      He did, but it would be hard to keep ones cool if at the end of a crap day you had that gimp Tubridy taking shots at you.

      1. SOQ

        He’s on a boy band reunion selling soap powder pop to middle aged women. The very least he could do is turn up on time?

        It is not like miming to a shake ‘n vac 2FM song was Freddie Mercury @ Live Aid now was it?

      2. rotide

        He’s a classless POS that’s getting paid a lot more money than he could ever expect otherwise. The least he can do is put up with some questions from that gobshoot

          on their records, the two most successful coaches around at the moment are giovanni trapattoni and louis van gaal

          past success isn’t always the best criteria

    Is it just me or…

    Is every sane, conscientious, hetrosexual and concerned male holding on for the tabloid lesbian sextape between kate and megan so we can all just get over this whole uncomfortable situation…

    It’s really hard to get on with reality while this is lingering in the air, right in front of my face on a daily basis…

    :-J

  2. :-Joe

    BTW.. It’s 1,500e extra to bring a bomb onto a ryanair flight…

    Trust me… like most experiences I know about… I found out the hard way…

    All that science and hard work ended up in an overstuffed airport bin…

    :-J

    Dear mum…

    apart from the insanity of talking to the tabloids… unless it’s for a big wad of cash…

    It was physics, a.k.a science that prevented the bullet from ending you childs life…

    No offence but without the financial incentive you sound like a f……. idiot……

    :-J

  4. :-Joe

    BTW when is the farcical nonsense hollywood fraudulent metoo movement going to deal with tabloid tits and the constant dehumanisation that’s been going on for decades….

    Noooooo……. it’s only really happening over there in lala land…

    Where all the celebrities live….

    “Dear Britain….” Theresa May pens an open letter to the nation in the Sunday Express.

    She doesn’t write “Dear UK” though which is the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

    Or, in other words, feck off the DUP.

    1. SOQ

      Amazing how it has gone from ‘there will be no votes’ to appealing directly to the public.

      Is a general election inevitable if it s voted down in HP?

      1. Eoin

        First LBC, then BBC radio, now the Sunday Express. Next week, she’ll be writing in Viz.

        As for her prospects for getting the deal through parliament, will her opponents really vote against when the alternative is no-deal, or will they sulkenly abstain? After the failure of Brexiteers to amass just 48 letters of no confidence, and when push-comes-to-shove in the ranks of the Labour party, Theresa may just about scrape through.

        1. SOQ

          All indications are it won’t get through the HP. Labour MP’s who vote for it risk the mother of all blow backs come the next election, especially with the demand for a people’s vote growing all the time.

          There is as many leavers against it as remainers so it really is very hard to call.

    Abul Taher of the Mail I think is trying too hard to peddle fake news.
    a) You don’t get into the hold of a ‘flight’. You get into the hold of an aircraft.
    b) The fuel tanks are in the wings, not the hold. Sure he could have said that he was feet away from the cockpit.
    c) He ‘clambered’ into the hold?

      If ever there was a need for gender quotas it is in the media – MoS “Man”. Why can’t a woman do the job of lazily investigating hiring procedures or repeating what someone else has already done?

    Interesting piece in the Sindo on the establishment of a Direct Provision Centre on the windswept Inishowen Peninsula to house some of the 6,000
    ” refugees ” seeking asylum.
    Well-intentioned locals are offering yoga trauma classes.
    The top 10 nationalities applying for international protection after fleeing war torn strife are: Georgians, Albanians, Syrians, Zimbabweans, Pakistanis, Nigerians, South Africans, Congolese (from the Democratic Republic of Congo), Brazilians and Algerians.

    Never knew there was so many wars going on around the world …

      UPDATE:

      The Donegal hotel ear-marked to welcome more than 100 asylum seekers shortly has been set on fire.

      Gardai have cordoned off the Caiseal Mara Hotel in the seaside town of Moville after a blaze broke out in the building at around 4am.

      It is understood the fire was started deliberately.

    The Sunday Times reports Siteserv’s financial results for 2017 (loss of €20m odd, not a good year, but it’s profitable presently it is claimed).

    Interestingly, it writes

    “The company previously installed water meters and is a “key partner” to National Broadband Ireland, the only bidder left in the running for the national broadband plan. “We have been working with them for two-and-a-half years, helping with their tender,” said [CEO of Siteserv, now called “Actavo”] Kelly. “We have a huge opportunity to be involved.””

    2.5 years, though?

    Wasn’t it only in July 2018 at that cozy dinner in New York between then Minister Denis Naughten and a couple of Dept of Communication staff and the leading bidder, that it was agreed that the leading bidder for the National Broadband Plan could swap out SSE and Laing and replace them with Siteserv?

    Stinks to high heavens.

      Noonan and Kenny’s greasy mitts all over this. Ably abetted by ‘Independent’ ex FGer.
      About time questions were asked as regards what advantages are being bestowed on FG as a party, or individually as members. There are billions involved over the years, so don’t tell me that FG are happy with a few thousand in donations to de Party.

      war is one of several reasons someone might be forced to flee their country and become a refugee

      but you know that already

      1. Ollie Cromwell

        I’ll remember that next time I’m sipping an ice-cold Castle beer in Cape Town and watching the expression on the locals’ faces when I tell them Ireland is picking up the bill for housing their ” refugees.”
        I vouchsafe there will be some guffaws.

          1. millie st murderlark

            Don’t.

            Then he can go back to picking lint out of his belly button, and the rest of us can go on enjoying the remainder of the weekend.

          2. Ollie Cromwell

            Well according to the Sindo they’re among the top 10 nationalities granted refugee status in Ireland along with Brazilans and Nigerians.
            Last time I looked their economies were motoring along okay.
            But hey,I applaud your generosity.
            Let’s use our taxes to find scroungers instead of real economic refugees.

    Mick McCarthy would drive a young fellla with any potential to an early grave . Can’t the fai get someone with a bit of energy to do the job.

  11. Dub Spot

    Sunday Times as offensive as ever with their “whores” gender-based language.

    “Anglo-Irish Tycoon”: Any relation to that other wunch of bankers who wrecked our economy?
