Are those bottles of Ballygowan I see on BJ’s desk?

What will tariffs be on Irish bottled water after a no deal Brexit?

    Someone on Reddit said that in the Houses of Parliament they rotate their bottle water suppliers between companies from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Not sure if they got the memo about Ballygowan being south of the border. Feck it, don’t tell them.

    Sure if Ballygowan (part of the C&C conglomerate) can extract water free of charge from Ireland and sell it as premium mineral water, why wouldn’t Boris think he can extract the urine from the Irish free of charge and think he can ditch the Good Friday (lodged with the UN, signed by Ireland-UK-US) Agreement. It’s what the marketeers might call a synergy of branding.


    Have any of our fearless politicians challenged C&C, Diageo [the British owners of Guinness], Coca Cola etc about their apparently free use of the main ingredient in their products (while, at the same time, Irish Water says we have to conserve water and Dublin is running dry).

      It’s been owned by a UK company since 1993 – firstly C&C who then sold it to Britvic in 2007

    If anyone thinks this was a mistake, I’m afraid you’ve drastically missed how politics work. Leo Varadkar will be having a laugh with Boris on this move whenever they chat next. There are no mistakes when it comes to modelled photos of politicians.
