Hi Spotify, can you please comment on this? Why are you serving British content to Irish users? Given the current political climate, I’d hope you’d be a bit more sensitive…

FIGHT!

      what on earth do you suggest as an alternative? Spotify Radio introduces me to a lot of small artists who I can then give money to by attending their gigs

    Because you speak their language, read their newspaper, watch their soaps, follow their soccer teams and wear their jerseys. Real Ireland begins in the west, when you cross the Shannon, west Brits, in denial, live east of it.

      Good to know I’m not ‘Real Irish’.

      Not sure I fancy being married to my cousin for want of a better option.

    Because, like it or not, a lot of good music comes from Britain? Like would you be complaining if it was American Breakfast?

    I strongly disapprove of chips with a fry. And beans too. That fry is missing white pud.
    Apart from that, I’m in.

        Awwww. Now you’ve made me sad as the main place that I like to have my lunchtime tipple closed last week. Chez Max on Baggot St. They did lovely chips. Apparently their café will close soon too.

          I’m raging about that, their outdoor area was the best. The last thing I got served was disgusting though, bits of fish inside a blended up fish sauce. An abomination.

    I’m sick of how targeted content lumps us in with Britain and UK. Just perpetuates the ignorance.

      To be fair we have very similar cultures with very similar tastes, we eat the same food, listen to mostly the same music, watch the same tv programs, why wouldn’t we be lumped together.

          Brought us all together,
          It was you that set the spirit free”

    Any hackers out there who can adjust that algorithm to inflict non-step Úna Healy on the Brits? That should bring it all back up. #othervoices
