        Joke obliviously- but sure all Protestant organists are gay- it’s compulsory- they’d be music-less without them- setting a dangerous precedent if they start sacking them for getting married.

      they let a Presbyterian minister go for marrying his long term partner there recently, all bigots as bad as each other, selling “Christian love “

        The Internet is outraged because someone used PhotoShop to change an original image? Wow. Does this sort of PhotoShopping happen a lot on the Internet? Dumbfounded.

        The Labour Party launches its radical manifesto in Birmingham today.
        Exactly 45 years ago to the day since the Birmingham pub bombings by the IRA which killed 21 people and injured 182 others.
        Corbyn is the gift that keeps on giving.

            You eejit, your mind clearly isn’t your own…

            He clearly acknowleged it in his speech and used it to highlight how important the good friday agreement is to any deal with Brexit.

            You’re an absolute clueless eejit using the names of the dead victims for your ignorant nonsense and another failed smear on Corbyn… urghh so many eejits.

      As a citizen of Eire, one would think you’d appreciate how acts of ‘unconscious bigotry’ can rub a people up the wrong way.

        …anti-Semitism isn’t ‘rubbing people up the wrong way’…it’s specifically the method used by the Nazis to demonise an entire race and justify the extermination of millions…anti-Semitism and all forms of racism should be condemned…it should not be weaponised to justify the existence of a failed regime that practices apartheid and genecide…

          For what it’s worth, anti semitism was around long before the Nazis. With that said I’m pretty sure you know what I was getting at.

            Every time I hear those colonialists across the water vocalise the ‘th’ in McGrath it cuts to the bone. Feels like they’re spitting on the graves of my ancestors.

          Judasim is not a race it is a religion and just like Islam or Christianity, people are entitled to hold whatever views they wish- both for good and bad.

      Ye he’s clearly either living in a deluded denial fantasy bubble or just a an apologist for zionist/israeli propaganda and lies about anti-semitism all because Corbyn removed all associations with their lobbying of Labour and Young Labour unlike the tory’s and Young conservatives.

      Anyone remember @badiel randomly turning up on the BBC Frankie Boyle show, fair enough but at that time the Gaza Massacre had just been reported so he turns to spread propaganda and push, promote and defend the Zionist / Israeli agenda by condemming Corbyn for anti-semitism in Labour as a distraction?…

      It was so obviously and blatantly forced into the show…. I’ve never seen anything so crass by comedians or the BBC – I was livid.. I thought Boyle had more backbone.
      – & then he and the BBC get called out for peddling propaganda after he wrote a smear sketch for the Tracy Ullman show..

      He must be so hard up he’s getting paid directly as an active twitter-troll and media propagandist. – It’s Totally nuts how blatent it has become…

    Irish Daily Mail – yesterdays news today.
    The ‘letter not received’ defense was always a get-out for penalty points. Many cases thrown out because the notice wasn’t received.

    Joe Schmidt’s mea culpa in the Irish Times for the RWC disaster reads more like Schmidt Happens, handily written by IRFU toady Gerry Thornley.
    Whining about bad decisions from the officials, the poor training pitch ( where have we heard that rubbish before ) and fine margins.
    Fine margins ? Ireland were hockeyed by a Tier 2 side and destroyed in the QF.
    The so-called tactical genius was exposed as just an Ordinary Joe, which handily enough is the title of his book.
