    Angry gulls when lockdown is over – they must be starved… maybe this whole thing is about Bill Gates trying to defeat Psycho Gulls by depriving them of chips, it’s hard to eat chips with a mask you see, the droplet thing is just a ruse, and the head quarter of the Psycho Gull In-Chief (otherwise known as Jacinda Ardern…) is in New Zealand, hence no lockdown… it’s all finally making sense

    1. Cú Chulainn

      Well, it’s hard to argue with that. Excellent observation CE. It’s all starting to make sense now. Now we know who’s been pushing the anti-maskers, who else would even think of the term ‘face nappy’, except some creature who was well used to putting their face into dirty nappies. Yes, none other than… the Psycho Gulls..

    Well done to all the publishers who avoided the royals story, it’s quite an insult to call it a story actually. I’d love to know how much RTE will be spending to be allowed to air it, waste of money.

    1. Andy Pipkin

      Considering ITV paid £1m you can only guess how much RTÉ paid!
      Can’t wait to see the viewing figures? I’d say some repeat of reeling in the years will get more!

        It might surprise you. It’s not Covid, a bit of escapism, argy bargy and gossip… what’s not to like. One for fans of The Crown. Poor Queen though, she’s stooping at the prospect.

        1. Andy Pipkin

          I know there’ll be a certain group who will have an interest in this interview, but my point is that the majority of those people will have watched it on ITV a good half hour earlier.
          Not including those who’ll just watch the highlights on YouTube in the morning.
          Just another massive waste of money by RTÉ.

          1. Lilly

            Probably. It’d be interesting to know how much it cost them. No more than an episode of Eastenders, I hope.

          2. Andy Pipkin

            Hey Lilly,
            Don’t know if your aware that Eastenders on RTÉ is sponsored by SEAT Ireland(at least they were last time I looked) and never makes the top 10 in viewership!
            There is only a very small percentage of people in the country that doesn’t have access to BBC Or ITV/UTV.

            RTÉ just waste money day by day and nobody is accountable, it’s jobs for the boys. And when they need the money they go crying to the government for a handout, which they’ll get because the government will tell them what to say!

            If they were any other business they would have been told too close years ago!

    I wonder what Harry’s father thinks of this situation. I also wonder what Prince Charles thinks of it.

    I wonder how Coveney got on with the beef deal in Iran. Handy to have the UN pick up the costs of the trip.

    1. Bitnboxy

      Guffaw. Searing analysis as ever GiggidyPox.

      As an old-style crozier and armalite Republican, one would have thought you’d appreciate a rapprochement with Iran.

      Spare me the Church of the Assumption nonsense.

      Ding, ding!

    1. Bitnboxy

      Erm, not sure the EU ever “trusted” Bozo GiggidyPox. They both just desperately wanted to avoid a no-deal. And what a deal Bozo got – a big heap of the bare minimum.

      And now Frost going all GiggidyPox.


      Ding, ding!

        Seek help MK2.
        Hopefully no-one has been on the physical receiving end of your troubles over the weekend.

      So as of now, no investigation no charges no one GUILTY…..but potentially:)
      Got it.

        1. Johnny

          Davy was fined under EU law,read the IT link you provided behind paywall,re ‘heads of bill’ – what legislation would they be charged and guilty under in Irl.

          ‘….the reason their names should be made public is that we have an established system in every open society that people found guilty of wrongdoing dont get to retain anonymity. ….’

          1. Brother Barnabas

            its literally there in the first two paragraphs, johnny:

            “The bank, which regulates the sector, can turn its attention to the behaviour of individuals only after it has first found against the company under current Irish law. The recent decision to fine the business €4.1 million over a rogue bond trade means it can now focus on the behaviour of individuals involved, including senior executives, Minister for Public Enterprise and Reform Michael McGrath said.

            The regulator has a range of sanctions available, including fines and barring people from working in a regulated firm.”

          2. Johnny

            The central bank has closed its investigation.

            It was opened 8 years ago , ok ok that’s a guess but 6,let me know when the open a new one ok:)

            Guilty,guilty,all of them.

          3. Brother Barnabas

            it’s closed its investigation into the firm

            government – and lots others – seem to think it should now investigate the individuals

            if they’ve done nothing wrong as you’re so adamant, then there’s nothing to worry about

          4. Johnny

            The NTMA has auction Thursday,let’s see if Ireland’s only primary bond dealer takes a knee,it enhances the firms rep. with the yanks,hell yeah I want Davy,you’d better wear your big boys pants they sharp….

  5. Johnny

    Your words….
    ‘the reason their names should be made public is that we have an established system in every open society that people found guilty of wrongdoing dont get to retain anonymity. ‘

    Quite the walk back from demanding the names of GUILTY private individuals,to ‘potentially” yeah it’s ‘stoopid’

    That was in you reference to linking only “paywall” pieces from the IT,who’s business reporting is not great.

    1. Brother Barnabas

      the “stoopid” was in response to me asking why the 16 werent named. nothing else.

      1. Johnny

        …shut what would I now stoned all the time.
        I’m delighted one the maple 10 got well and truly fooked,by bunch spoilt rich kids.
        Nice one Davy’s take all the carpet baggers every one them.

        1. Brother Barnabas

          yep, I’m delighted they took him – and equally (maybe even more) delighted to see the davy 16 being taken too

          such larks

          1. Johnny

            He’s a non resident of Ireland,had just open an account to unload toxic Anglo bonds,he got by ahem ‘investing’ in their shares,in consortium with 9 of his friends.

            He’s a big boy,made a deal,got taken,litigtated in others words a sore loser Bro.

            What irish laws were broken

            What they guilty of bro,street smarts,taking advance,good for them.

            For once playing in the game,getting bit the action for the Irish,the guy had it coming.

          2. Brother Barnabas

            i dont see what him being a “non resident” has to do with it – it’s okay to scam someone because he’s “not from round here”?

            also, nobody likes paddy kearney – but that’s not why they did it, they would have done same to anyone given half chance – and have been doing so for years

            staff in there up to their ears in cheap NAMA deals for years (all in “personal capacity”). who’s that scamming? the taxpayer

          3. Johnny

            Oh my,your standing up for the little guy here:)

            Guilty,guilty,all of them.

            Can you just stick to this instead further smearing Ireland’s only primary bond dealer.

            Goldman Sachs,DB have ‘capital’ arms that actually compete with you,Bro you sure picked some hill….I’m not sure which part of the deal you’d don’t like,for me it was the getting caught part:)

            But if invited id have invested absolutely yeah,thanks a million.

          4. Johnny

            …ra suppprter,bar stool republican,stoned all day.:)
            Don’t rely only on the irish times,that’s just st……

    From 26th October 2018. referring to Bernard Byrne (who is the new Interim Chief Executive of Davy – he was deputy Chief Executive)

    “Brian McKiernan, CEO of Davy Group, said that Mr Byrne had been identified as the ideal successor to Kyran McLaughlin, saying that he was someone with the “right skillset and personal qualities” who would lead the team into the future.”

    “”He has a range of capital markets experience and is a first-class leader who will take responsibility for a top performing team at a great time,” he added.”
