    The missiles are falling. I actually thought the Iranians would have more sense. Maybe it’s just a slap and nothing more serious.

      Iran’s response was a bit naff tbh.
      A bit like Ireland’s mighty Air Corps massing for a night-time raid on Rockall.
      As they swoop low for the first pass there are no actual bombs.
      But a spotty Rangers cadet hanging out of the window with his trusty Lee Enfield rifle.
      No ammo of course.
      But he goes through the motions anyway pretending to shoot.
      ” Aim, two three … fire,two three … bang,two three. ”
      After a successful sortie the lads head back to base and lash into the Cidona, with the adrenaline still coursing through their veins.
      Never in the field of human conflict have so many given so little for so few.
      Brave lads.
      And good times.

    Well there’s an awful lot riding on someone managing to persuade Trump that de-escalation will be more popular than retaliation.

    Charlie Tanagain sure got his ass handed to him by Diarmuid Ferriter yesterday. Defer? Charlie boy won’t be in government. The usual bull.
    He was caught out lying (nothing new of course) big time, and the obvious blueshirt attempt to re-write history failed.
    Day day Charlie.

        Subtle difference putting the word ‘Boy’ capitalized before the first name, and the word ‘boy’ in small letters after it.

      This bull poo again? All taoisigh are elected the same way as Leo Varadkar was so he is your Taoiseach. Register to vote in his constituency if you want to get rid of him or join FG to start a heave.

    If Long Bailey gets the Labour leadership gig there won’t be a Labour government for a long time.

      …so what…whatever flavour holds power at Westminster makes little difference for Ireland…if anything, some of the most draconian measures have been introduced by Labour…ask residents of Garvaghy Road what they think about Mo Mowlam and her decision to brutally cast them aside to make way for a triumphalist parade by Paisley and Trimble…

      Whichever one of these losers gets the leadership gig Labour will be out of power for a very long time.
      The only one with any credibility and the sense to understand why Corbynism was a disaster is Lisa Nancy and she’ll get shafted by the big unions.
      It’s the leader after next who’ll have the best chance of dragging Labour back to anywhere near electability – and his name should be Dan Jarvis.

        jarvis would be an excellent LP leader – and would be an appealing options for a lot of Tory voters: lifelong LP connection but almost a Tory dna to him

        a good, decent man too

        problem is that he doesn’t want it, more ‘s the pity

            Not me Fisted.
            I’m as Tory as they come but I do think a strong opposition is good for democracy.

            There’s room for both of those too. I’ve a fairly eclectic taste, with live shows for both Riverdance 25 and The Murder Capital booked for February :)

            I draw the line at those ‘Cirque de…’ shows, and fell asleep at a James Taylor gig haha :)

      The ‘musical’ equivalent of a boot stamping on a human face – forever. No surprise that this repetitively dogmatic, fascistically rousing tosh would appeal to you Clamps :0)
