      Happy New Year Nigel! Maybe we don’t always have the same take on things but that’s the nature of things and I know you’re a decent person regardless

    Happy New Year all.

    I watched the celebration on RTE for a bit, it was awful, truly awful. Una Healy is not cut out for interviewing people.

    So I had a peek over at Joules Holland’s Hootenanny, marvelous stuff.

      47 mins into the new year and the bitchiness starts. Well done you.
      Una’s was good enough, Jools was better.

    Happy New Year everyone! May you all flourish in 2020. (Hat tip to Lyric’s Evelyn Grant who expressed a preference earlier for flourishing over happiness on grounds of realism…)

    Of course technically 2020 is the last year of the old decade and not the first of the new.
    I just prefer to think of it as the year when Brexit really does mean Brexit.
    And England beats Germany in the finals of the Euros with a last minute peno from Sir Harry of Kane.
    Bring it on baby.
    Marvellous, what ?

      …do you reckon that Dominic will go to year end with the pretence of negotiating a withdrawal agreement with the EU or will he order Boris to announce a no deal exit before then?

        Haven’t a clue.
        No-one has.
        Best just enjoy democracy in action.
        No fear of the EU threatening Blighty into changing its mind.
        As they did with Ireland.
        Twice.
        Morto.

          ‘not sure you should be let off with Blighty and Morto being stitched together there like that Charage

          It’s like the one Friends tried
          the one where Rachel makes trifle

          A mismatch so blatantly wrong that the scene ends up coming off like the writers / producers are taking the p1ss out of people who are just thick. Simple and Thick, yet harmless, decent and sweet, and nice to be around.

          And all that kinda suggests you’re a bit of a creep in real life
          The kind people should be wary of

          No matter what handle you’re coming at us under

            Another resolution broken already.
            Suppose I’d better wash my hands now.

      I am too after I saw Una Healy’s New Year’s Eve Party on RTE… was that for real? Sweet Child of Mine with the RTE orchestra?

        Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
        The flying cloud, the frosty light:
        The year is dying in the night;
        Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.

          No man ever got very high by pulling other people down.
          The intelligent merchant does not knock his competitors.
          The sensible worker does not knock those who work with him.
          Don’t knock your friends.
          Don’t knock your enemies.
          Don’t knock yourself.
