    I see that Sinn Féin’s Óglaigh na hIdirlíne™ have gotten so bad that Mary Lou has had to call on them publicly to stop being to “pig ignorant” online… NB Johnny, Giggidy, Pat Dullard, et al.

    1. Daisy Chainsaw

      Meanwhile, the FFG Fraperoom working 24/7, like an emergency service, does the opposite and encourages the faithful to be as pig ignorant as possible

      Lads, your shinner baiting and bashing is embarrassing!

      1. Scundered

        The paranoia of shinnerbots is unparalleled. It’s not baiting, and even if it was it would never be as embarrassing as shinner support. Do you feel your political ideas are beyond ridicule or what? Or is it just that you feel you have some tyrannical authority to silence anyone who disagrees with you?

        1. Daisy Chainsaw

          Nobody’s political beliefs are beyond ridicule, including precious blueshoights who get very snowflakey when their hypocrisy is pointed out to them.

          1. Rob_G

            Who’s getting snowflakey? (other than you, I mean)

            Daisy can always be depended upon to leap to the defence of a party who sets the attack dogs on rape victims, or those who speak out against homphobia within the party, with an asinine “FFG”, “fraperoom”, or whatever you are having yourself.

            Did a load of FG activists harass and bully Grace online at the behest of Mickey Noonan?

            Because if not, your contribution is as irrelevant as it is thick.

          3. GiggidyGoo

            Typical FG reply. Your buckos write letters of recommendations and leave defencless children in the hands of molesters.

          4. Rob_G

            The whisteblower who brought the Grace case to light is on the record as saying that she does not think that Noonan is to blame for that awful scandal.

            Whereas Gerry Adams left his niece in the care of her abuser for decades, and then put pressure on the victim not to name his brother as the abuser, so this seems like a peculiar choice of scenario for you to attempt to take the moral high-ground on.

          5. Rob_G

            Imagine posting something as stupid as that and thinking that you had won some sort of rhetorical point…

      2. Gerry

        The article isn’t about FF and FG, it’s about shinners online being such rotters that Mary Lou had to tell them off. Did you miss that?

        1. GiggidyGoo

          tsk tsk Gerry. The first line of the article is ‘The Sinn Féin leader, in a wide ranging interview, appeals to supporters of her own party and others to refrain from posting abusive material on social media sites during political debate’
          Did you miss the ‘and others’ part? Or did you even bother reading the article?

          So, no D’s then (@Cian)

    The Sunday Independent story on The Green parties, junior Minister Malcolm Noonan comments on reintroducing the Water charges, Wow, do they really want to wake that sleeping beast. Just like the mudguard Labour Parties 2016 election meltdown, it will be the rock the Green Party perish on, come next election.

    1. Joe

      The execrable Greenwash party will be destroyed by the electorate if they dare to try to bring in double taxation rip off water charges. Maybe the idiot Noonan is a plant by the Greenwash party’s enemies to ensure their destruction!

    Waking up to good news on the vaccine front.
    The EU has started administering the first Pfizer shots as the vaccine programme in the UK approaches the one million mark.
    And the UK will approve the Oxford/AstraZeneca jab this week with a mass rollout starting almost immediately.
    Even as the second wave and new mutations explode across the world there is some renewed hope for the future.
    Marvellous.

        pictures in newspapers of people getting stuck with needles all around the world for the next 6 months… can’t wait
        ie. sometime in March in some newspaper – “First Outer Mongolian over the age of 56 with a poodle receives vaccination”

          1. ce

            “It’ll be a welcome change from pictures of people dying in ICU” – That was already taken care of by Union Jack waving Brexit nonsense from several outlets during the second glorious revolution.

          2. V AKA Frilly Keane

            Wouldn’t mind seeing pics of Boris when he was shifted into ICU that time

            Like what kinda jimjams he had

            (っ˘̩╭╮˘̩)っ

            I reckon he’s a Paddington Bear man + Bulldog slippies meself

    1. SOQ

      SARS-CoV-2 already has over 20 000 variants so a few more is hardly an explosion.

      Does the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine come with Bells Palsy too?

        1. Brother Barnabas

          wasnt aware of pottle’s connection to bertrand russell – whole story is a really fascinating web

          1. Otis Blue

            Throw in John Le Carre as well. Kim Philby blew his cover to the Russians.

            Le Carre’s grandmother was Irish. Born in the same place as Jeremiah O’Donovan Rossa.

    “Something mysterious happened when Barack Obama entered the Oval Office in
    2009.

    Something vanished from that room, and no one could quite explain why.

    It was a bust of Winston Churchill – the great British war time leader. It was
    a fine goggle-eyed object, done by the brilliant sculptor Jacob Epstein, and
    it had sat there for almost ten years.

    But on day one of the Obama administration it was returned, without ceremony,
    to the British embassy in Washington.

    No one was sure whether the President had himself been involved in the
    decision.

    Some said it was a snub to Britain. Some said it was a symbol of the
    part-Kenyan President’s ancestral dislike of the British empire – of which
    Churchill had been such a fervent defender.

    Some said that perhaps Churchill was seen as less important than he once was.
    Perhaps his ideas were old-fashioned and out of date.

    Well, if that’s why Churchill was banished from the Oval Office, they could
    not have been more wrong.”

    Morning Joe,never forget,is Richie Neal powerbroker and chairman the house ways means committee (that be the trade team),going forget….hell no.

        …Theresa Mays deal+Bungling Boris as PM+Blue Passports…think Bodger was a bit premature (about 5 years) with his “So long..” headline…

          1. bisted

            …not usually one for head-the-ball analogies but someone on twitter suggested that Boris’ gains on the fishing front wouldn’t buy a decent premier league footballer…

  5. Charger Salmons

    Boris has achieved a trade deal that will be supported by Nigel Farage and Kier Starmer.
    Both will do so reluctantly but the fact they will is a triumph for Boris.
    Now the uncertainty has been resolved the deal will supercharge the UK economy with massive pent-up foreign investment.
    This time last year Boris won an election promising to leave the EU and deliver a trade deal.
    Very few politicans get to come good on election promises.
    The BOGOF Brothers Mehole and Varadkar can’t even agree on whose turn it is to look a tool in public.
    This has become Boris’s finest hour.

    “Water charges should be explored” say the Greens, according to the Sindo.

    Surely the Green Party aren’t that tone deaf, that stupid. I mean, they could ask a few key members of the Labour Party how that went last time.

    FFG do love a convenient scapegoat and SF are great at capitalising on a good populist cause. But if you ask me, the Greens have written themselves back into opposition already, come the next GE.

    Talk about squandering a good opportunity at every turn.

    1. bisted

      …I think the greens see an electoral pact with FFG as the only way to get re-elected…they have already shed any principles they had but managed to retain three quarters of their membership…they seem to have a core vote regardless but they betrayed the people who helped them over the line last time…

      1. Rob_G

        The Greens were always in favour of water charges – any environmentalist would be. Agree that it might not be the most opportune moment to bring them up, however.

        1. bisted

          …environmentalists may beg to differ…in fact…so big was the opposition to water charges and the inevitable drive towards privatisation that I’m sure many environmentalists were among the ranks that forced the eventual climbdown…environmentalists may object to their cause being used as a flag of convenience by the current bunch of opportunists who claim it…

          1. bisted

            …I think you are mixing up greens with environmentalists…a common mistake…but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time…

    The post Christmas magnifying glass is focusing in on Gift Cards – one company in particular. Trustpilot and the Company Facebook page make pretty harrowing reading 4most

      1. GiggidyGoo

        True.
        They became the gift of choice for a lot of corporates though. Up to €500 can be given tax free. And the recipients find that they they can’t spend them in some of the (limited) advertised shops.
