    The British are resigned to a hard border? The majority of The North voted to remain in The EU – it beggars belief that democracy, such as it is, works in this way.

    1. eoin

      Our national broadcaster has a junior govt minister on the most listened-to radio programme to answer questions about the border. “So, do you regard the imposition of checks as undermining the Good Friday Agreement?”
      “Well, our priority is to avoid any physical infrastructure on the border..it’s part of an ongoing process..we have obligations to protect our place in the EU single market.. what we’re having now is discussions with the EU Commissioner…if there are checks they will have to take place remotely away from the border”

      You’ll remember what Simon Coveney said earlier this year.
      “But once you start talking about checks anywhere near the Border, people will start delving into that and all of a sudden we’ll be the Government that reintroduced a physical border on the island of Ireland”
      Simon Coveney to Shane Ross, 15 January 2019, inadvertently picked up on reporters microphone

    I miss the late night mad lads.

    I remember when this was mental as far as the eye could see at this time of night.

    Eoin should be here soon to copy and paste some facts, thankfully

        True.

        I used to enjoy opening the papers and seeing if there’d been a massacre overnight. It did get progressively madder (and unpleasant) as time went on and I’m pretty sure that’s when the lads in mission control had to step in.

        1. Spaghetti Hoop

          I recall the same old reliables featuring in the nightly massacres, and their conspicuous absences. I trust life has been grabbed by some in a positive move. It was an awful waste of a person’s nightlife.

    You need to watch the British papers like hawks for the next two months. This is how the “Irish” Sun interprets an opinion poll today

    “FEWER (sic) than half of Irish people are happy with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar’s Brexit stance”.

    A downbeat gurney pic of Leo, a downbeat mid-blink pic of Simon Coveney yet Boris looks like an energetic go-getter.

    Yet if you drill into the figs
    41% are satisfied
    25% are neither satisfied nor unsatisfied
    24% are unsatisfied

    And although the Sun doesn’t report it, 10% don’t know, otherwise their % don’t add up!

    Also the “pun” of a headline is “BREXUALLY UNSATISFIED ”

    Why the strained sexual pun? For a second, I saw “bisexually unsatisfied” over Leo’s mug.

    The Irish Sun is selling 46,412 copies a day here. About the same as the Irish Times. We should be concerned at Murdoch’s propaganda at this point in Brexit.

    Any news about the cause of death of the 19-year old in Galway 8 days ago? The Gardai were reported to be carrying out toxicology reports last Thursday on the day of her funeral. No news yet?

    1. Yep

      Shut. The. Fupp. Up.

      This just asking questions evolution to your comments is becoming some of the worst and most mean-spirited stuff ever seen here. Get a Fupping life you self-righteous ladypart.

        1. The Old Boy

          In fairness Bodger, eoin presents himself as an eagle-eyed observer of the press, then makes deeply disingenuous remarks like that knowing full well that it is not usual practice to publish toxicology results in the immediate wake of personal tragedies. It’s left until the inquest, if at all.

          1. Cian

            In fairness Old Boy, that is eoin’s MO; See below for another example where he mentions the press attack on Prince Andrew & Charles…and then makes deeply disingenuous remarks (fabricates a ‘story’) about the queen and her corgis – pure filth.

          2. ReproBertie

            eoin’s getting great traction on these poor taste comments about the recently deceased so we can expect them to continue.

          Antifa page. Even soeakersunicorner have disassociated themselves from those. Makes it odd then that you would quote their thoughts

          1. some old unicorn

            Never noticed that, just went by the actual Facebook name- still, are they wrong?

            I also link Dr Umar Al Qadri above btw- probably the most serious development in the debate of free speech vs hate speech to happen to date.

            Is that not worth a post of its own Bodger?

  6. eoin

    So, despite Boris pledging he wouldn’t discuss Brexit with EU leaders until the backstop was abandoned, he’s going to Paris and Berlin this week for talks with their leaders? But neither French nor German EU leader has abandoned the backstop. Boris is going to look like a silly flake when he’s told some home truths this week.

    1. ReproBertie

      May tried this touring the EU leaders thing too. It failed then and it will fail again now.

    After the attacks on Prince Andrew (Daily Mail and Mirror) and Prince Charles (by association with Louis Mountbatten, Sun and Sunday Times), I was surprised not to see in the Telegraph today a US-tinted attack on the Queen, what the footman saw, that type of thing, smearing pheasant blood over her unmentionables and summoning the corgis, maybe. I mean, if Establishment papers are capable of fingering Andrew as a paedo (he denies sexual contact with girls linked to Epstein) and throwing mud at Charles (by association), why stop there?

      This is gas. Deleted three times now. Whatever you have on them eoin, it’s working.
      Also, a bright future in the Sunday World awaits.

            Don’t you only follow Giggidys comments? Did you get a promotion, nondescript henchman number 4?

    Has Regina Doherty read the report on how she was instrumental in an illegal mass surveillance project yet?

    1. Daisy Chainsaw

      If you read the article, you’d see that the people of Kilmacud sponsored and supported their move there.

    great pic on FT there, it reminds me a bit of Fred Dibnah

    maybe they’d be good enough to take care of Liberty Hall next wha

    1. Spaghetti Hoop

      Good old Fred Dibnah! Funnily enough, I lived and worked beside the Didcot power station for a couple of years. Developed a nasty dose of conjunctivitis as a result of the emissions; the cooling towers emitted steam but there was a little hidden flue about the size of a high jump pole which emitted the concentrated and deadly carbon dioxide. You could taste in on your tongue on a morning. When it was earmarked for closure, locals became very nostalgic and a local arts group (of which I was a member) covered them in illustrated white sheets which were then illuminated with images at night alongside musical chants and dancing – it was quite magical. The affection people had for the power plant is a bit like the Poolbeg towers today. I never thought a set of cooling towers would feature so prominently in my life but there they are now as dust as I shall be one day.

        “you could taste it on your tongue”

        jasus!

        often had situations in the workplace where I’ve wondered what the hell am I storing up in the body here but u just get on with it dontcha

    1. martco

      nice link thanks
      I just loved watching the no fuss natural brutal engineering talent the fella had….those simple ladders & rope & the temporary scaffolds he’d knock up 200 feet above when having to take down the tops of the chimneys by hand…& never looked like falling off. an oul fella doing it in his hobnails & overalls looong before these trendy youtuber free climbers with their fancy gopro’s were born. he had chimneys already down when others would be still at a drawing board doing complex maths to model it first.
      unique character
