    I disagree with that. The front page story of the Irish edition of the Sunday Times yesterday was supposedly co-written by the London political editor Tim Shipman and the well-regarded Irish political journalist, Justine McCarthy. But as far as I could tell, the entire piece was written with a London agenda and at times it was confusing which “Cabinet” they were talking about (it was probably the British one). If the Irish edition was truly Irish, why wasn’t it just written by Justine or why didn’t Justine’s name come first in the credits?

    So, instead of Rupert Murdoch riding two horses on Brexit/British-Irish relations, I think the Sunday Times in Ireland is dominated by the British viewpoint. That’s a worry because the Sunday Times has probably overtaken the Sindo as the most influential Sunday platform. But it explains why Rupert can walk in and out of Downing Street as he pleases, despite his reputation and all the hacking.

        …there is effectively direct rule in the 6 counties and it is about to deliver the equality and pro-choice legislation that exists in GB…

          And your much beloved United Ireland you hope. But tell me- how many lives will be lost before then eh? Do you even care?

          Probably not.

          Sure it’s all just a bit of craic on the internet.

    Greenslade is a sanctimonious, hypocrtical fool who was happy to take the Maxwell coin even while the meglomaniac was emptying the Mirror pension funds.
    As editor he even agreed to rig a competition for readers so that it was unwinnable.
    British newspapers have had different front pages and different opinions in their Irish editions for as long as they’ve been selling in Ireland.Likewise in Scotland.

      I’ve started seeing little fluffly kittens whenever I see your comments instead of the absolute diarrhea you seem to post.

      A strange and wonderful circumstance, considering how much I like kittens.

        Oh the irony of Charger saying this about someone else, spelled incorrectly to boot. Ah, bliss.

    The Sunday TImes Irish edition yesterday also had a short piece on Cassia Johnson, Boris’s daughter, being a student at TCD. The English edition wouldn’t have printed that.

      Yes, those cunning rascals at The Sunday Times pulling the wool over all those Irish people who’ve never heard of that new-fangled interweb thing.

      Thank goodness we have pigeons to bring us our information.

        Nah. I’m not allowed to post directly so there’s a gap between me posting and it appearing.

      The very same Greenslade.
      Wrote for An Phoblacht under a psudonym.
      Owns a holiday home in County Donegal and mates with Pat Doherty, former member of the IRA Army Council.
      Loathed in Fleet Street. Even The Guardian canned his nonsense.
      So he teaches journalism instead.
