    The Irish Mail – we know which side they are on. How about ‘Johnson: ignorant & dangerous’?

      Is John Drennan, formerly of the Sindo, now writing for the Irish Mail on Sunday. I suppose it’s the Mail’s way of nominally Irishifying what has now been essentially reduced to their British title. Pass.

      Just for a moment I stood there in silence
      Shocked by the foul evil deed I had done
      Many thoughts raced through my mind as I stood there
      I had but one chance and that was to run

    Another week, another misleading headline in the Sunday Times.

    Leo is to press for a border in the Irish Sea, which is hardly a revelation, the Irish govt has previously adopted that position so that customs checks would be at the ports, Belfast, Dublin, Rosslare and there wouldn’t be checks on movement between North and South. Big deal.

    The wording of the Sunday Times headline is unclear and could Leo be talking about checks on the Border? Well, he’s not, but all-Ireland food checks could refer to a Border arrangement, and that’s why you’re supposed to buy the paper only to confirm the Taoiseach is to propose an arrangement which the Irish govt has proposed in the past, a Border down the Irish Sea, which is hardly worth you buying the paper at all, because Boris and the DUP will reject it.

    Newspaper folks, wha? You can’t take your eyes off them.

    “The Sunday Business Post has learned that a group of public servants had devised a strict system to enforce new rules designed to free up housing for the rental market in the midst of the housing crisis” reports the Sunday Business Post (still a slimmed-down shadow of its former self).

    The new rules came into effect a month ago after being announced 10 months ago. There’s no-one to police them, despite everything being available electronically on open platforms. Civil servants wanted AirBnB to police it, which, given they have the software and the listings, seemed imminently sensible. But Murphy said “no”.

    There’s up to 3,000 potential homes in Dublin that could transition from the tourist/AirBnB sector to traditional housing. You’d think Murphy would be more interested.

    RTE publishes an apology which it’s kept on the front page of its news for the past couple of days

    “On the 23rd and 24th of November 2017 a timeline was published online by RTÉ entitled ‘Timeline – Sergeant Maurice McCabe’.
    Information relating to Alan Shatter’s Ministerial involvement in relevant events relating to Sergeant McCabe and Mr Shatter’s subsequent exoneration from allegations made against him was omitted from the written timeline.
    RTÉ recognises that Mr Shatter’s conduct as a Minister was vindicated by the O’Higgins Commission of Investigation Report in May 2016 and wishes to apologise to Alan Shatter for any reputational damage and upset caused by omitting this from the timeline.”

    RTE doesn’t say if this relates to the legal action which Shatter took against RTE in 2018, but it’s a fair bet it does. RTE doesn’t mention damages or legal costs. RTE doesn’t state there *was* “reputational damage and upset”, it merely states it apologises for *any* which may be nil, and is kinda like saying “I’m sorry if you were offended”.

      Meanwhile, the Sunday Times apologises to Dermot Desmond. “Following an article entitled “Another day in paradise for Desmond” (Business, July 21 2019), we wish to clarify that the details published concerning the sale of Mr Desmond’s interest in the resort development company are incorrect. We are happy to make this correction and apologise to Mr Desmond for the error and providing misleading information.”

      And that’s it. This wasn’t the subject of High Court proceedings, and there’s no word on damages. You’d wonder if the defamation gravy train has come to a halt after Denis O’Brien’s defeat earlier this year, but then again, Gerald Kean walked away with an unbelievable sum in his recent case, so, who knows.

    That Broadcasting Bill which Richard Bruton published last week has fupp all to do with a household charge for RTE from 2024 or tendering the TV licence collection service currently provided by An Post. It seems to be a grab of funding for the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, the secretive organisation with a CEO in place for decades, which dispenses tens of millions of funding to the arts. Just what is Richard Bruton up to this time?

      Eoin . Do you understand half of what you write?
      You call the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland a “secretive organisation”. It’s remit and rules governing it are in legislation. It is subject to FoI. It publishes an annual report. How could it be less secretive?

      1. Pat

        But…but…. eoin makes lots and lots of comments on Broadsheet telling the things he reads in the papers. Is that not the same thing as being a journalist or an expert?

        1. V

          Repeating loadsa other peoples stuff – what I call a He-peater

          Makes you an Irish Journalist and or (since they’re usually one and the same, an Irish Expert

          TBF Eoin doesn’t deserve to tagged with either or both those
          Since he IDs the source (usually anyway)

          So who is Lucinda shilling for today E?

          1. eoin

            Couldn’t tell you who Lucinda is shouting for today. We’ll find out on 22 August what the first half of 2019 sales were for the SBP, but word on the street is, full-price circulation is well below 20,000. So her shouting won’t be heard by many! The Irish press has too many columnists opining one thing or another, with little evidence or backup, and, as often or not, they’re conflicted or rewarded in the opinions they espouse in their writings.

          2. V

            The SBP will be gone by Christmas
            IMO

            However I’ve long wondered if someone is actually stumping up for advertorial content disguised as columnist opinion and journalism
            Like that Medicinal Cannabis feature had advertorial slap back all over it

            If so, sales numbers aren’t going to give us much info regarding viability
            Or even solvency

      The CEO. He is responsible for managing the day to day operations of the BAI on a delegated basis.
      On a delegated basis? Why specifically but the words ‘delegated basis’ in. He’s not full time then?

    Irish Water going to new lengths to disguise the fact it’s pumping untreated pee and poo into our waterways. According to the Irish Times

    “bacteria associated with the human and animal gut” found on Kerry beach.

    “human gut bacteria”? Surely they mean “hGb” by Calvin Klein.

    Also, the IT reports “Enterococci” is found on another Kerry beach.

    “Enterococci” by Nina Ricci?

  7. GiggidyGoo

    “Enterococci are bacteria, which are normally found in a person’s gastrointestinal tract”
    In other words it’s human faeces.
    Much like the record of FFGLABIW
    IW is just a billing system. It doesn’t do any of the physical work involved in supply of water, nor the treatment of Water. It’s a home for political supporters and yes-folk. It was set up (and still planned) for Denis OnBrien. The privatization of part or all of it is still on the agenda.

    1. some old quare

      Couldn’t resist the dig eh? Some of the comments on that thread are so sore- they can always organise their own event of course- all six of them.

      You can pick the extremes out of any gathering and present as the norm but the fact remains- the biggest protest of the year happened yesterday- the one day when Belfast people shine. I don’t know how it is going to get any bigger than that- but it probably will.

      Leo’s probably more happy to associate himself with this- a PSNI member taking a selfie with An Garda Síochána member- second picture down- only at Pride could that happen eh?

        The whole point is that pride has become an expression of the ‘other’.. those of us who choose love over hate.. its as simple as that.. a Garda and a nips.. keep it coming..

        Here is an interesting video- of the bible bashers who are there very year except- out of all the many many thousands who attended, they are the only ones waving the union flag- or the tricolour for that matter.

        Now roughly 50% of the attendees come from unionist backgrounds and if I was them, I would not be too happy with their flag being hijacked in such a manner. Irony being that those Pride participants, just like their fellow Irish, are the ones demanding parity with elsewhere.

          The Union flag protesters (protesting the removal of the Union flag from Belfast Hall) are there every Saturday. Isn’t that them there yesterday? There’s always a few lone fundamentalist sandwich board religious folks around Belfast city centre. There used to be an organised group of protesters at the Pride parade, were they not there yesterday.

          Also, Fianna Fail, the Republic Party had a handful of attendees yesterday with FF-branded banners. Interesting to see when they abandoned their modest ambition, announced in 2014, of standing candidates in the North from 2019.

      2. GiggidyGoo

        Of course I couldn’t. Varadkar can’t resist the photo ops, but as in the pictures in my link above, he shys away from a large component of the pride movement – and it isn’t an extreme either. Never mind the comments. The photos say a lot.

        1. some old quare

          How does he shy away from a large component of the pride movement? Was he supposed to be on ever float and behind every banner at the one time?

          He is the leader of what half of the crowd would consider to be a foreign country and yet- he was invited up onto the stage to speak and warmly received by everyone. Not many times that would happen in Belfast now is there?

          1. GiggidyGoo

            How does he shy away you ask? The absence of photos of him with the type in the photos in the link answers that one quote well. Why is that? Does he not identify with that ‘section’?

          2. some old quare

            That I am very tired and dehydrated while arguing with some sniping clown who will never have the balls to step outside the Internet says more about me than them I suppose.

          3. GiggidyGoo

            A couple of photos, some questions, and the default is to run away. Do you take pride in what is depicted in the photos? Especially the one with the child holding the ‘butch’ referenced poster?
            Or or you going to address the photo aspect at all?

          4. GiggidyGoo

            Cú – so that’s life then, is it? Any comment on the photos then? I’d be interested in your views especially on the photo of the child holding the ‘butch’ poster. Explain to be how that makes you proud. Don’t divert to some other subject now – explain how it makes you proud.

          5. Cú Chulainn

            For those who like that kind of thing that is the thing they like. Grown ups having grown up fun..

          6. some old quare

            With one expectation, all political parties are represented, unions, businesses, even sports like Ulster Rugby and Antrim GAA- NI civic society was out in force. The hotels were fully booked with minimum cancellations and the pubs and restaurants were operating at full capacity- but no- you want to talk about one picture which says I heart butch lesbians on a thread where the comments are full of homophobic bile.

            And that is really why you want people to look at it now isn’t it?

          7. GiggidyGoo

            Not at all.. I see you have a distinct refusal to comment on the content of the photos.
            I doubt they fill you with pride. Can you answer straight – do those photos fill you with pride? It’s obvious they don’t fill Varadkar with it, seeing as he avoids the likes in his photo shoots.
            Cut to another diversion now – FF FG SF Hotels, sports, pubs, restaurants – whatever. But why are you avoiding my point about the content of the photos?

          8. some old quare

            The contents of the pictures are

            A handwritten poster saying I heart bitch lesbians,

            one with a couple of cartoon characters,

            one saying Trans Rights,

            two of kids in the puppy brand gear,

            and a saved sodomy from Ulster badge.

            Really? Is that it? Is that what you are getting your underwear in a twist over?

            Out of 65 – 70 000 people on the streets and that is the worst they could find?

        2. GiggidyGoo

          Nice attempt. Child holding a poster with “I ‘love’ butch lesbians” No opinion on that?
          Do you see anything at all wrong with the fact that a child is holding such a poster?
          Do you think the child understands what’s being held?

          1. ReproBertie

            I see nothing wrong with it and I think the child fully understands.

            Have you ever met children? They’re fierce inquisitive.

          2. GiggidyGoo

            Not only have I met them, there are some in my family. They don’t, however, carry placards with slogans on them referring to butch lesbians. At least you answered the question, fair play.

          3. Man On Fire

            “the child fully understands..”

            I’m pretty sure the kid doesn’t know what butch means, but is simply being used as a prop, just like the placard.

            Virtue signalling at its lowest.

        1. Daisy Chainsaw

          Harmless. There were thousands, including small children watching young guys in short shorts and face coverings chasing each other around a field today (some of them might have been gay too!), but nobody got all pearl clutchy or hysterical about it.

          Your hatred of gay people is duly noted.

          1. GiggidyGoo

            Yep, the standard fallback is the hatred accusation. Good on you Daisy. Not true mind you. So what will you delve into next?
            There’s a series of photos in that link. And you consider the content of them all harmless? Is that what you’re saying?
            You’re quick enough to mention ‘pearl clutchy. What are your clutchy items Daisy?

          2. Daisy Chainsaw

            I have pearls, but I don’t get clutchy at the sight of people enjoying a day out. Children holding signs is no big deal. There were holding worse at anti Brexit rallies.

          3. Cú Chulainn

            Totally agree.. a little bit of happiness and pride and the horrible bigots come out..

          4. GiggidyGoo

            Any comments on the content of the photos Cú? The one with the child holding a placard – that makes the gay pride movement proud? Does it?

          5. ReproBertie

            Your brother thinks the in your face aspect of the pride movement is worse than being imprisoned for being gay?

        2. GiggidyGoo

          Daisy – the child was holding a poster proclaiming a love for butch lesbians. A child. No big deal? A then you try a diversion to Brexit rallies – is that it? Is that the sum total of your thoughts?
          Just a comment of the difference.
          A brexit rally is in protest at brexit (or not as the case may be) and the posters reflect that. The Gay Pride parade isn’t a protest as such. It is in some parts of the world, but here it’s a day out for enjoyment (you agree with that). What’s the joyful message of a child holding a poster declaring a love for butch lesbians?

          1. Daisy Chainsaw

            Maybe the child’s mother is a butch lesbian. What do you feel is wrong with being a butch lesbian, or loving a butch lesbian? The words butch and lesbian aren’t perjoratives either on their own, or together, so what exactly is your issue with them? That child is showing far more tolerance than you are.

          2. GiggidyGoo

            Ah Daisy. So, it’s show tolerance when it suits then? Funny you can’t tolerate someone else’s views on the fact that these photos exist, but resort to ad hominem comments. But, more to the point, is that Varadkar is never photographed in such type photos.

      1. GiggidyGoo

        Any comment on the photos then? I’d be interested in your views especially on the photo of the child holding the ‘butch’ poster. Explain to be how that makes you proud. Don’t divert to some other subject now – explain how it makes you proud. A bit of work to do then?

          1. GiggidyGoo

            Lame, even coming from you Repro.
            (I didn’t see any reference to ‘mother’, ‘mammy’, ‘mummy’ etc. on the poster).

          2. ReproBertie

            Wouldn’t matter. You found something to hitch your hatred to and that’s you happy out.

          3. GiggidyGoo

            Ah yeah, another one that pulls the hatred card. When nothing else fits. The ‘declaring of love for its mother’ was lame, but you’re another that avoids the subject.
            So are you be proud of what you see in those photos? Can you answer that? Pretty simple question mind you.

          4. ReproBertie

            Do you honestly expect anyone to believe that you trawling through photos from the Belfast Pride to try and find one you could portray as somehow controversial, and then using it to demand explanations and declarations of pride from anyone who questions you, was driven by anything other than your irrational, all consuming hatred?

          5. GiggidyGoo

            You see, there you are Repro. No answer. You aren’t proud of what’s depicted in the photos obviously – otherwise you wouldn’t have tried (again) the hatred card and diversionary tactic. Which brings me back to my point – that Varadkar doesn’t associate himself in photographs with the likes of what’s portrayed. He likes the nice soft touchy feely photos.
            I have gay friends (surprise for you obviously) who make a point of not being part of the month-long circus that this has become. Do they ‘hate’ too?

          6. ReproBertie

            At a time when cross border relations are in a very strange place and the gay community in Northern Ireland are still being denied rights afforded to them in Ireland and Great Britain, an Taoiseach marched in the Belfast Pride parade in solidarity with those who face discrimination at the hands of the DUP and their followers.

            Rather than taking any pride in this act by an Taoiseach, something I most definitely do, your irrational and all-consuming hatred of Leo Varadkar causes you to attack the entire Pride movement based on one photograph that you had to drag from a homophonic “Christian” website.

            Proud of yourself?

          7. some old quare

            homophonic definition: The definition of homophonic is having one sound or line of melody at a time that is played by multiple instruments at the same time, or two words that are pronounced the same but differ in their meanings. Ha

            I suspect his hatred is of more than just of Leo Bertie- there is a lot of it still about. Heard of someone who has just lost their job at the weekend- employer found out they were gay- that this is still happening in 2019 shouldn’t be a surprise but still- it is the reason why we still need Pride.

          8. GiggidyGoo

            So there you are Repro. Run away, don’t answer, and pull out the standard ‘hate’ mantra.
            And soq. Same thing.
            Can neither of you tell us whether you’re proud of the child holding that poster which says what it does? Very simple question. One word would do. A few paragraphs of bluster doesn’t cut it i’m afraid.

          9. some old quare

            Nobody messes with the Butch Dykes- or the Drag Queens- if you are making a reference to Lyra- cheap shot- literally.

            The one good thing about a hard Brexit is this MI5 bullpoo will if not stop then definitely be reduced.

          10. GiggidyGoo

            soq. Was that comment directed at me? If so, I haven’t a clue what you’re on about.
            Apart from that. You seem to shy away from a direct question that has either a yes or no answer.

          11. ReproBertie

            It’s kinda sad that you’re obsessed with demanding people express pride in a photo that has nothing to do with them as if this is the entirety of the Pride movement. I feel nothing about that photo. It means as much to me as any randomer’s holiday snaps.

            I do feel a lot of pride that our Taoiseach marched with the gay community in the face of oppression from religious bigots and the DUP. Do you? It’s a simple question.

          12. GiggidyGoo

            Well at least you did answer the question eventually further up. As regards your question. I commend Varadkar for going up an showing his solidarity with the gay community there – if that is the reason he was there.
            My initial comment, way back, referenced the fact that he doesn’t appear in photos of the kind i linked to.
            A question was asked earlier as to if Varadkar attended the Belfast parade last year.
            You see, my opinion is that Varadkar is there more for himself and not the pride movement.

          13. ReproBertie

            Undoubtedly he’s there for the kudos. No politician ever does anything unless there’s credit to be earned. The important thing is an Taoiseach showing solidarity with the gay community in Northern Ireland while the DUP are up in arms about civil servants wearing rainbow lanyards.

            The progressive stance of an Taoiseach will be remembered when it comes to a border poll.

          14. V

            This
            And it has nothing to do about border or Loyalism or Tiocfidh

            NI citizens want what we have
            Equal marriage
            Choice
            EU membership
            A lot more tolerance
            And way better schools

          15. GiggidyGoo

            Well B9Com From No, it took you two days to come up with that eye-opener. Was it difficult to string the few words together?

          16. some old quare

            Picking on a stupid picture to fake concern for a child is an example of the lengths some will go to hide their true homophobic intent. In a way I prefer the DUP’s direct bigotry because at least you know what you are dealing with- this sort of insidious niggling is beyond contempt.

            Do not think that what Leo done was taken likely because there would have been serious security concerns about him walking in Belfast in a crowd of that size – but he done it- and he deserves credit for it.

          17. GiggidyGoo

            Well soq. I see you’re still having difficulties answering a straight question. But we are getting somewhere i suppose, when you call the picture stupid.
            So why not go the full hog now, and answer whether you are proud of what’s depicted in the photo?
            A yes or no will suffice (as you have a tendency to write a few diversionary paragraphs without actually addressing the question).

          18. B9Com From No

            @Giggidy if you really think I’m going to waste my energy on a bank holiday weekend getting down in the sewer with you sweetie -.. nah , you stay there love

          19. GiggidyGoo

            B9Com. Sure you’re great! Another one that is averse to an opinion on the subject, but no problem attacking the poster. Reflect on that for a moment. And compare it to what the pride movement complains about. Notice any similarities?

    1. GiggidyGoo

      It may not be part of a study yet, but B&B bookings are down 30% approx so far this summer. There’s a notable decrease in UK visitors. Apart from the insurance woes, there is now also the turnover woes.

      1. Otis Blue

        That 30% decline is cited widely throughout the sector and seems plausible. The British market – our largest by volume – has been troubled in the last few years.

        The CSO had overseas tourist numbers up – but revenues down – in the first quarter of 2019. Second quarter figures due any day now will tell a tale.

    The half-time Twitter comment on today’s “Sunday Game” match, Tyrone v Dublin – “The Coma in Omagh”. Joe Brolly was clearly disappointed that he didn’t think of it. It was BS-esque!

      No coma for me – Connolly coming back was like my birthday and Christmas morning all rolled into one, haven’t stopped smiling all day.

      1. ReproBertie

        All the baloney about the Super 8s is embarrassing. Why not just cancel the All Ireland altogether and hand the trophy to Dublin if nobody is able to give them a game?

          Apparently, it’s on-going for another year. A 3 year trial period. The back-door system was a tad controversial when it was introduced. Two Ulster counties in an All-Ireland Final – 2003? A high ball into the small square seems to be Dublin’s Achilles heel. No-one is handing Sam to Dublin just yet – not least Tyrone, Mayo, nor Kerry!

          1. ReproBertie

            Dublin have an Achilles heel? You’d imagine someone would have taken advantage of that by now.

          2. ReproBertie

            All Dublin talk aside there were some great games in the Super 8s this year. Kerry Donegal was excellent entertainment for a neutral. Aside from Meath, who will benefit from their experience, Group 1 in general was hard fought. Just because Dublin walked their group is no reason to abandon the format.

          3. shayna

            Tyrone illustrated it today – don’t forget despite being effectively two reserve teams – they play the same tactics as #1 team – the right players can exploit the weakness highlighted?

          4. shayna

            How would Dublin current fare against Eoin “The Bomber” Liston, or Frank “The King” McGuigan standing in the small square waiting for the long high ball, or Mikey Sheehy, or Peter Canavan waiting for the breaking ball?

            I think it’s a failed experiment
            Face it
            Donegal lost one game and are out
            Mayo well beaten early and in a semi
            Kilkenny what – lost twice? In a final
            It’s a joke

            I dunno

            But from what I’ve seen over the whole season, I don’t think anyone has an answer to David Clifford

            This championship isn’t won yet lads
            Not by a long shot

            Maybe the Dubs will resort to how they tackled Maurice Fitz back in the day
            Get their manager to roar verbal abuse into his ear (for those that forgot that filthy behaviour from Tommy Carr that day in Thurles)

            Same for the latest spawn from the O’Sé filth farm

            Maybe that’s why Connolly’s back
            T’ Take the two young bucks out’ve the game

          7. ReproBertie

            Before the qualifiers were introduced one loss meant you were out. With the qualifiers, and before the Super 8s, one loss for a provincial champion meant they were out. Donegal going out on one loss is no different.

            I can think of better set ups but RTÉ were dancing on the grave of the Super 8s just because the Tyrone Dublin game was a dead rubber. There were 12 games in the series but eaten bread is soon forgotten.

          8. ReproBertie

            For sure. Mayo have been through some tough games and what should have been Dublin’s first tough game of the season was a dead rubber with players rested on both sides. I’d be worried about Dublin starting out too slow on Saturday.

          9. B9Com From No

            I genuinely don’t think Dublin will get it hard against Mayo. While the latter are battle-hardened they just don’t have more than 1 player who can do real damage- maybe 2 – same as Donegal, Meath and Tyrone. Kerry on the other hand have 3 or 4 such players but this might be just one year too early for them. I’m fairly sure Dublin will win 5 but I wouldn’t bet on 6

          He’s Dublin’s John Mullane

          (not stylish enough a footballer to be considered a Paul more sinned against the sinning Galvin)

  9. shayna

    To be fair the Dubs did salute his every possession in the first half. He didn’t look like he’d been out for a couple of years. The Dub goal-keeper, Benedict Cumberbatch was impressive. Bernard Brogan still looks lively at 35. Good luck against Mayo – a banana skin?

    1. shayna

      I’m sensing, I’ll not make many Dub fans friends who would appreciate my comment on the Dublin goal-keeper. I did say he was impressive. Just as the Tyrone goal-keeper was. It’s purely banter is all. I do hope no-one took offence, especially the Sherlock Holmes actor. Stephen Cluxton – no doubt, a great footballer – this guy today, Cluxton’s gloves are in safe hands.

      1. shayna

        Let’s see next week-end, my four favourite counties will joist. I love Kerry football, also Mayo long high balls into W.J Padden in the square, back in the day. There’s Seamie and Aiden O’Sé who can catch a high ball in front of the Dublin goal. I kinda see Dublin coming through that one. Tyrone v Kerrry, well, of course – I’m hoping Tyrone come through that..The Kerry mid-field,they’ve a couple of great guys – Tyrone have six great mid-fielders? I’m predicting another Dublin v Tyrone final? Two of the guys today, Conor McAliskey and Declan McClure are from my club, Clonoe O’Rahillys – they both played well. I hope they get a chance at Croker.

          Dublin have only won by a single score in how many deciders..? This is a tight one and there are 3 teams who are fired up to stop Dublin.. let the games commence..

          1. Cú Chulainn

            Cometh the hour… he is a great, but still a puppy.. he needs a couple of years and for Philly to retire..

          2. Otis Blue

            Amid all the talk about the Dubs ‘drive for five’ its worth mentioning that Kerry Manager, Peter Keane, is going for his 4th consecutive All-Ireland triumph.

            Just sayin’
