      +1 I’d never describe myself as a fan of his shows or his presenting style, so I was pleasantly surprised to see this. RTÉ are beneath contempt

    Noel says in his Facebook video
    “Antonio Horta-Osorio, the chief executive of Llyods Bank, according to a whistleblower has briefed his executives to crush Edmonds, “you must crush Edmonds” he says because then you will crush all of the other victims and when you look at the bit that was missing from the original [RTE] Player piece you will see the reaction of the studio audience was 100% support”

    Lloyds is the parent company of Bank of Scotland Ireland which had a massive Irish loanbook, was it around €30 billion?, it stopped new lending in 2010 but it’s been trying to work out the loans itself and with vultures ever since. I wonder if any of the criticism levelled by Noel against Lloyds applies to the Irish operation.

    Noel has a £60 million case in the UK against Lloyds. It’s pretty nasty stuff.

    The TV license is the problem for me, RTE can censor whatever the hell they want after I get out from under the legal requirement to pay the license , Id happily give 160e to any charity in lieu of paying it to RTE…

    RTÉ love to get anyone in to puff up their agenda of ‘light entertainment’, and keep the populace distracted. Particularly a ‘celebrity’ from overseas. It must have been hilarious to have seen the faces on producers of the show’ when Edmonds went off script. It is also delightful that foreign people are presently getting a chance to see how censored Ireland is – and that RTÉ are central to that and associated repression. I will toast to the good health of Mr Edmonds this evening.

    It is beyond obnoxious Irish people are forced to pay a propaganda tax for a state broadcaster who’s apparent purpose is to keep the people stupid. Never forget it was Sky News and the BBC who informed Irish citizens of the IMF arriving in Dublin – while RTÉ continued to broadcast lies and mistruths.

    On a totally unrelated note, here’s a fine documentary produced by BBC 2 on how Dr. Goebbels went about brain washing the German people during the 1930s, titled ‘We have ways of making you think’. A notably effective practitioner, Dr. Goebbels believed that when propaganda was obvious it doesn’t work. Instead he emphasized keeping the people distracted by light entertainment. Hope it is as much interest to someone else as it was to me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGIWugzkUEc

      thanks @Dude
      will check out the BBC iPlayer later for that
      (now that IS an example of what a playback facility should be like)

      ITT: The same people who would be screaming blue murder if a cash settlement had to be paid out by rte to a bank for libel etc.

      Lads, not knowing anything about this particularly interview, im going to guess with a fair amount of accuracy that the lawyers had a look and demanded the cut. It’s not a conspiracy to keep you in the dark, no matter how much you want it to be.

        You remind me of the oul saying…”What’s the difference between ignorance and arrogance? I don’t know but YOU don’t know either ya idiot.”

        I’m off now for a warm jar of ketchup.

        1. rotide

          ” I don’t know but YOU don’t know either ya idiot.”

          That sums up 95% of comments on broadsheet.

        And yet journalists are talking about how they’re being pressured to don the green jersey and not talk about the ramifications of a no-deal Brexit, even though, in 63 days, it’s more than a possibility. Only now is Leo talking about soldiers and checkpoints. Where’s the bullet-proof guarantee now? Maybe give it to the soldiers to replace the heavy plates in their amoured vests.

          That’s a lot of text that has precisely nothing to do with lawyers deciding that the banking issue is a hot topic.

    And in other news a Limerick detective arrested and apparently Garda used a digger at officers home address.
