    If ever anyone doubted how controlled we all are through the media we need look no further than Mr. West. A throw away remark about the (to some at least) completely fake corona diagnoses of The Orange One, and if is front page news because (allegedly) he canoodled with his very pretty co star. He is an actor, this canoodling is not news. And, yet it is. We are all being played.

          When was the photo taken in Italy ? Doesn’t look like any quarantining took place.. a Glynn super spreader event coming up..

    Ireland’s hunt for that elusive first win in the Nations League continues in Finland tonight.
    But maybe it’s time to dare to dream.
    Another tiny minnow,San Marino,recorded their first ever away clean sheet with a 0-0 draw against mighty Lichtenstein last night which also earned them their first point in six years.
    The magic of the Nations League right there.Maybe some of that San Marino stardust will be sprinkled on Kenny’s lads.
    Jumpers for goalposts.

      And, opening on the Sure Have Inferiority Troubles meter in today’s episode of Love Ireland at an even 9.0, put your hands together for Charger ‘More Irish Than The Irish Themselves’ Salmons.
      He joins us on Zoom from his rancid bedsit, with wee-smelling 30-year-old carpet, and a mound of unwashed empty bean tins strewn around him, and a well worn VHS from Greek Tourism, as he dreams, Mitty-like, of one day visiting such places as Alexandria and Tessie Lonika.

    Oh, look at the lovely couple. Posing for the wedding photos. All smiles. A match made in Heaven. The two main partners in the Ménage á trois.
    We had the Howlin / Noonan banter in 2016. https://www.thejournal.ie/howlin-and-noonan-banter-2532484-Jan2016/
    What will the FF FG banter be like?

    “Let’s give more money to the UN, the WHO, the EU, Foreign Aid etc.”
    “Aye, and let’s tax our own people more in order to pay for it”

    Stevie Nicks is old enough to be Harry whatevers Grandmother! Ha ha! Did the press really think they were together? Very silly stuff.

    Ronaldo has covid 19! I’m never buying him on FIFA career mode.

    In other news, I think Boris Johnson will resign before completing his full term. Nothing is working out for him is it? A fantasist exposed by the daylight of reality.

        when do you reckon next UK election will be?

        will tories get a majority ?

        if tories arent in govt next time out, will party stick with boris ?

        (and here’s one especially for you, charger – dom preparing exit. own volition. better things etc. sick of petty scrutiny. gone by feb)

        1. Charger Salmons

          You obviously know Dom better than I do but he doesn’t seem to be the sort who’d bail out when the going got difficult.
          And he does seem to have some big picture ideas he’s intent on carrying out.
          If Labour had a leader other than Starmer they would be doing much better in the polls than they have all summer, consistently failing to breach the 40% barrier.
          Too closely allied to Corbyn, remembered for trying to ditch Brexit and now being seen as opportunistic over Covid-19.
          Here’s his Shadow Health minister opposing a national lockdown yesterday which Starmer demanded a few hours later.
          But most of all this picture will come back to haunt Max Headroom as the election looms.

          1. Brother Barnabas

            dom has had enough- sick of the bureaucracy, sick of the sniping, sick of the media intrusion- and would have gone long ago only he felt an obligation

            despite his unpopularity, he’ll be a massive loss to the UK – in time, people will realise that

    1. Vanessanelle

      I think so too Junk

      Said it a while back – he’ll be gone as soon as Brexit crashes and off back into the lecture/ columnist circuit with his massive upfront for his memoires in his Back Pocket

      He’ll have Got Brexit Done
      Been a PM and a GE landslide winner

      He’ll hit the road within a year
      He’ll not sit around to wait for too much of his own bulls motion to stick
      Besides he’s getting scorched for maintenance and housekeeping

      All he needs is a nice title from Mrs Windsor

    EU has 4billion of tarrifs to put on US goods and services, guessing this might not be a good time to invest in technology

    BREAKING: First Minister of Wales Mark Drakeford has announced a ban on anyone living in a #COVID19 high risk area in England from entering Wales.

    ‘ Oh no, I’m really going to miss not being able to visit Wales ‘ said no-one in England ever.

      …how ungrateful Charger…wasn’t it the Welsh who gave Brexit the push it needed…wasn’t it the Welsh who helped it across the line at the second time of asking and contributed towards Boris’ stonking majority?
