Big Little Lies


A cartoon in yesterday’s London Evening Standard


A crock.

Or not.

YOU decide.

Why the Boris Johnson, Jeremy Hunt leprechaun cartoon is no laughing matter (Martin Doyle, Irish Times)

    Jaysus, dont ever go to America on St. Patricks day then.

    Sad to see the IT descending into online trolling with stuff like this though. ironically enough, his background on his twitter is a father ted scene. The irony is delicious.

      Comedy set in Ireland written by Irish people based on astute observations of Irish life versus clichéd and unfunny illustration. Yep, totally the same.

        Astute observations? oh lord….

        I thought it was made by Channel 4, set in Ireland by Irish people.

    Great to see the rainbow in its original context again. And the cartoonist is merely reflecting how most plastic Paddies dress up on St Partick’s Day.

    It’s a stereotyping we make billions from in tourism I’m sure.
    Been into any O’Carrolls lately Martin?

    No wonder I’ve stopped buying the Irish Times over the past couple of years.

    I *might* be offended if A) I had thin skin B) I thought the leprechaun thing was actually offensive or C) If it was coming from anywhere else but the swiftly drowning UK and its choice of halfwits to represent them.

    I don’t get the reason for the offence at all. It was done to coincide with the teaboy and Hunt arriving to talk to the 500 or so C&UP members in Northern Ireland. It very accurately predicted their performances where they promised anything and everything based entirely on fresh air. It wasn’t a dig at the Irish at all but at the morons who believe anything these lads promise.

    Given that there’s a heap of offence being taken by the English because USA celebrated a goal by pretending to drink a cup of tea last night…
