    Funny watching Leo and colleagues learn that the woke vote they’ve been courting never had any intention of voting for them anyway.

      Yeah, who’d of thought that the shinners were all gay and the greens are having abortions all over the shop, eh?

            I’ve had a chat with him about this. He won’t listen.

            It’s as though he enjoys being the village idiot.

    He’s right, of course.
    The Irish Times’ coverage of Brexit, like much of the media here in the past week, has been parsimonious, petty and entirely lacking in objectivity.
    Like the UK Labour Party it still hasn’t recognised the reasons behind Johnson’s stunning election victory or why Britain has finally Brexited.
    Fintan O’Toole, in particular, has become the Hiroo Onoda of Irish journalism

    The FT splash is interesting.
    Nissan would consider pulling out of the EU and increasing production in the UK under a no trade deal Brexit.
    That’s not what Project Fear warned us about.
    Blighty to boom in post-Brexit big business bonanaza bombshell.

        How sweet.
        Someone who believes a multi-national company’s PR department.
        It’s no wonder they pay hardly any tax in Ireland with sap’s like this falling for the spin.
        If you think the FT would lead on a story like this without excellent sources you’re deluding yourself.

          I’ll ignore any criticism from someone who is ideologically bound to the kind of people who take some of their information from the side of a bus. Keep on whistling!

          1. Charger Salmons

            Even sweeter.
            Someone who thinks 17.4 million people voted for Brexit because they saw something written on the side of a bus.
            And being told to in secret Twitter messages from Putin.
            It really is no wonder the EU has Ireland under its thumb if this is the level of thinking.
            Next you’ll be telling me leprechauns are real.
            And the EU ” has our backs.”

    RTE have an “Election Committee? Who is on that? How often do they meet? Have they funny handshakes? How many other committees are there in RTE? So many questions, so little time.

    Excellent speech by Boris this morning outlining Britain’s negotiating lines for the next few months.
    Witty and informative and delivered in the style that endeared him to so many working class communities in the North of England and Wales.
    Worth a sconce if you have a spare half an hour.
    Good to see an unashamed patriot in Number 10 and not the whining old Trot Corbyn.
    Remember him ?
    Oh, Jeremy Corbyn.

    The Tories a clear 20 points ahead in the polls, up 4% since the election and Boris riding high.
    Little Leo, who last week was lecturing him on how to run a country, is on his way out.
    To be replaced by a coalition of the gormless Mehole and some cloth-capped culchies demanding a new by-pass and some magic beads as the price of their support.
    Life comes at you fast in the politics game.
    There’ll be a lot of laughter in Number 10 when that happens.
