        Tin man
        I doubt there is anyone else in British politics to take over from Boris
        Unless of course sir kier starmer the old head of the CPS who was there the time the jimmy savile investigation was suspended
        Then of course he is Labour the same Labour who presided over the crash just like our Bertie did

        1. stephen moran

          The Tories have been in power for 12 years – I think the statute of limitations on blaming the other guy has long since expired. That trope about Saville is sub Daily Excrement stuff

          1. Kin

            Fact is Kieth starmer was appointed head of the CPS in 2008
            The investigation into jimmy saville that was the first was dropped by the CPS in 2009
            If that prosecution went ahead quite a few victims would of avoided the clutches of jimmy saville
            The buck stops at the head of any institution or business
            If someone slips in my restuarant and it’s a fault of those working in the place
            Being the owner I am held account not my workers
            To me it’s unfortunate for the Labour Party to have their leader with that baggage
            In all reality you cannot have a PM tainted by that scandal

          2. K. Cavan

            Mark my words, Sir Kier Something is ready & willing & able to roll up his sleeves, get his mojo working & position himself to start his preparations to begin his stint as Leader of the Opposition.
            When that day comes, insha’Allah, Johnson will think the current barrage of print from the Oligarchs’ newspapers, hammering him for not keeping in place the life-saving mask up/lock down/shoot up regime that Professor Bill Gates handed him on a plate, not to mention the gargling in the back yard stuff, was just a complete load of transparently worthless waffling tripe.
            “Mask ’em up, lock ’em down, shoot ’em up, Rawhide, raaawhide…”

          And it was Brian Cowen who “presided over the crash” btw – but never let facts get in the way of a puerile partisan barb

          1. Kin

            Actually it was Bertie
            The crash started in 2008 the depression was from 2009
            Bertie was in charge when the crash happened and was responsible with his policies that led to it
            In 2009 as the shit really hit the fan it was Cowan who was the fall guy for FF
            Ever wonder why he always looked like the person who just could not believe his luck that he was top dog
            Good old biffo

            That’s royshe, stephen, Ahern merely presided over the asset inflation that was caused by low interst rates that was caused by the EU’s fantastic One Euro-money to rule them all scheme.
            Luckily, the unborn Oirish tax-payers were already twinkles in their parents’ eyes at that stage & will, at some future point, be ready to step up & shoulder the burden of the EU making financial decisions for Political reasons & their rabidly neo-fascist dreams of One Europe, United Under Unelected Experts, the OEUUUE, which is currently working up a head of steam to try to extinguish the memory of The Shoah, by having a far larger genocide of Europeans.
            When you’re as unsackable as you are unelectable, well, people are just going to have to get used to it.
            Abortion on demand, eh?

          David, why the constant change of username? Or do you just scour the daily express for new syllables that appeal to you?

      There’s someone on here who is usually mad keen on women’s sport.
      Especially England women’s sport.
      Particularly when they get beaten.
      But she seems to have lost interest today.
      Can’t think why.
      Anyway, how’s the rugger going ?


      ” England women demolish Ireland to set up Six Nations Grand Slam decider against France ”



      1. Mad

        Well done alright
        Fair play to the lardass English ladies

    Three British cabinet ministers reportedly facing allegations of sexual misconduct


    “Three cabinet ministers are among more than 50 MPs reportedly facing allegations of sexual misconduct after being referred to a parliamentary watchdog. A total of 56 MPs – including two shadow cabinet ministers – have been reported to the Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme (ICGS), according to the Sunday Times…”

    1. Kin

      Grubby perverted little politicians have always been a problem with the establishment in the UK sad to say
      I remember one Cyril smith
      Maybe it was the case that many went to boys only public schools

      1. TenPin Terry

        Whereas in Ireland the widespread child abuse is mainly but not solely down to priests.
        And then covered up by politicians.
        I’ve got a sweetie under this cassock – say three Hail Marys and brace yourself …

    2. K. Cavan

      Probably some are guilty, which means some are not. If only the papers would publish their names, their reputations could be destroyed, you wouldn’t need trial by jury when you have trial by gossip, that way you’d get all the guilty ones. As for the rest, no smoke without fire, am I correct, Ferg?
      It worked wonders for Nicola Sturgeon.
      That trout served up Salmond’s head on a plate.

      A little unknown fact feargy
      Did you know when Britain abolished slavery the British crown took out a loan to compensate those involved in the slavery business
      It was such a colossal amount it was just a few years ago the loan was finally paid off
      Sadly for the slaves they got nothing

      Maybe it’s time that each government world wide and institution that benefitted from slaves be brought to book
      Plenty of old money all over Europe and the world enjoyed the fruits of owning slaves and built fortunes on it
      It’s time they coughed up

      1. K. Cavan

        Well, the African slave trade had been in business for rather a long time before Europeans arrived. It was a positive civilizational shift from slaughtering your tribal war captives but it took the Arabs to monetise it.
        400,000 African slaves to the USA. They obviously increased in number.
        Maybe 25 million into the Ottoman Empire but the men were all castrated.
        Europeans, though, should definitely pay reparations, because we’re different from Africans & Arabs?
        Right now, 25 to 40 million slaves, according to Anti-slavery International, all in Africa, Arabia & Asia. Old habits die hard.

      1. TenPin Terry

        At least you’re not still pilfering other people’s work and passing it off as your own …

        1. K. Cavan

          Could be worse, could be pilfering his own work & passing it off as someone elses.
          Small mercies.

  2. Kin

    I. Just wonder all this IVF freebies plus all the unfortunates fleeing Ukraine costing the taxpayer €50 grand a head as per government press releases
    The social welfare bill to keep those who cannot afford to live here pensions health education new houses then of course debt interest repayments on €250 odd billion each year how the hell we will be able out of a 5million population
    I suppose it’s not sunk in yet

    1. K. Cavan

      We won’t be able to pay, ever.
      There Is No Alternative…it’ll have to be….
      The Great Reset? Only joking, it’s a
      Conspiracy Theory.
      Even now, teams of Civil Servants are using photocopiers to print huge piles of Euros. Hear them hum. Hmmmm.
      Modern Monetary Theory.

    1. anti bot

      Cavan not on today. its time for the other alias soq to spout lies. Tell us all why it is acceptable to invade another smaller nation?

      1. K. Cavan

        Ask Uncle Sam, Aunty Bot
        Try to put him on the spot.
        OMG, WMD,
        On RTE & the BBC.

        A twenty year
        war in Afghanistan,
        To replace The Taliban,
        with The Taliban…

        1. anti bot

          oh you’re on now. You have retired soq for the day. Go on answer on his behalf is it acceptable to invade another smaller country?

          1. anti bot

            How does previous US invasions justify this one. Go on tell us. You’re from the UK and have a history of invading smaller countries, so surely you can come up with an explanation

          2. K. Cavan

            Of course, Aunty, this invasion occurred in a bubble completely cut off from geo-politics, the USA’s foreign policy, the Bidens, Nuland, Pyatt, Nazis in government, Donbas, etc.
            In your head, zombie.

          3. anti bot

            see you can’t answer to justify why its acceptable to invade another country. Nick name calling, Nazi this, Nazi that, look what the US did. Therefore is OK to kill innocent people? Is that your logic. Go on tell us. When are you reverting back to soq?

          4. Kin

            Empires were built on that one
            Size dose not matter but if Ukraine had not had a far right coup then spend 8 years kicking the poo out of part of the country that would not live under a coup and 25 thousand die because of that
            Maybe dictator Putin would not of used it as an excuse to invade
            Look at all nations from Afghanistan to Iraq which NATO used an excuse to invade like the good old WMD argument
            I suppose Putin thought what’s good for the goose
            Meanwhile zelensky was some businessman to increase his wealth in an unbelievable way in Ukraine the most non corrupt country in the world

          5. Nigel

            Except it wasn’t a far right coup, and Putin started, funded and armed the separatist conflict. You guys acting as if Russia was an innocent bystander that invaded a country to save the day.

          6. bisted

            …would that be Isis…Al Queda…White Helmets…’being funded and armed’…*

            *oops…forgot again…that was the goodies…

          7. Nigel

            The White Helmests were goodies, but once Putin slandered them you joined the chorus. It’s just really weird how the Russian history of interfering in sovereign states, supporting dictators, funding violent extremists, invading other countries, undermining democracies all vanishes in a puff of whataboutery.

          8. Nigel

            Trying to save lives, they got in Putin’s way, no amount of being good can protect from that.

  3. Kdoc

    The Azov regiment is fewer than 1,000. The chanting crowd may not necessarily support Nazi views but are saluting their defiance against the Russian bear.
    Incidentally, I check this site out from time to time and you, and a couple of others, are almost a permanent feature of the comments section. It can’t be good for your well-being.. There’s a beautiful world out there, the sun is shining. It will do you good to enjoy it while you can, unless you have a disability that confines you to a desk.

    1. ce

      “There’s a beautiful world out there, the sun is shining.”… no it’s not, that’s what they want you to think…

    2. SOQ

      I think you are somewhat missing the point. Nazis do not exist in a vacuum and have a level of support from the wider in order to exist. In the case of Azov, they are regarded as being the best funded, trained and influential battalions within the Ukrainian army, especially as a sizable number of the rest are just conscripts. Some even suggest that the Zelenskyy regime answer to them, rather than the other way about.

      All one has to do is look at the 180 degree turn by the western media to see what these people are saying is just not true. The linked stories were by the western media, not the Russians.


      As for the rest, thank you for you concern, but I am perfectly happy doing what I do. Have a nice day.

        1. Verbatim

          That clip is very hypnotic.
          Wouldn’t have been too bad except for the surprising ending, are they preparing a pathway to power themselves?

      1. Nigel

        ‘ they are regarded as’
        ‘Some even suggest’

        Some solid evidence-based reasoning there.

        ‘ the 180 degree turn ‘

        Country Being Invaded By Russia Bigger Story Than Existence Of Nazis In Country Shocker

          1. K. Cavan

            I do believe he is, Duncan.
            Best leave the room, let him sort it out among himself. My money’s on Nigel, he’s always (far) right.

        1. Daisy Chainsaw

          Are the “some even suggest” a couple of Putin’s conspiraloons making stuff up I
          On telegram or tiktok?

    3. K. Cavan

      Did you count them yourself, Kdoc?
      13,000 to 14,000 , Azov, Ajdar, White Hammer, etc
      That was before Russia got to working them over, though.
      Norm from Cheers points out that guy who’s always in the bar when he comes in.

      1. Kdoc

        K, I don’t watch soaps, I don’t know the characters, but I get your drift.
        I’m very disciplined when it comes to social media – about an hour a day – because I enjoy the great outdoors.
        You see most comments are just a bit of escapism, they change nothing, even yours, I’m sorry to relate. Attitudes can change but it’s notoriously difficult; your professor would have told you that. According to the late Noel Sheehy, by around mid-twenties attitudes are firmly embedded and resistant to change, without enormous effort. Social media comments are just a substitute for pub talk; a little now and again is harmless, but don’t take it, or yourself, too seriously.

    1. scottser

      Come the May elections he’ll probably be gone, depending on how many seats he loses.
      Betamax Boris more like.

    2. GiggidyGoo

      What a come down. The Tory Party, which had a 17 point lead are now the “Margin of error Party” on the negative side. Imagine losing 19 points – courtesy of Bumbahole Boris, and some Tories still want to keep him as leader – And to Starmer at that.

  4. Kin

    So Donnelly and watt are allowed to skip enquiry regarding allegations that Houlihan was given a teaching post at trinity collage but paid by the HSE AND APPARENTLY €2 million a year pay cheque that could last for up to 10 years
    I would actually believe the taxpayer was to be stuffed for up to €20 million and maybe a fraud case should be what’s going on

    1. GiggidyGoo

      Donnelly is trying the ‘ignore and it’ll go away’ ploy all over the shop at the moment. He’s a worse minister than Harris was, and that’s saying something.

      1. K. Cavan

        The-name-of-the-article-is-in-the-link, Ferg. You could save yourself the bother by just not posting it.

    Matt Hancock’s stay at mansion of Randox founder revealed by FoI request:


    “…During the Northern Ireland visit in 2019, Hancock met three firms, including Randox, that at that time were paying Paterson to be their consultant. Official documents obtained by Transparency International UK under the Freedom of Information Act suggest Paterson was partially involved in organising Hancock’s visit…”

    1. Fearganainm

      I don’t know about ‘is dawning’ – an outcome in Russia’s favour has been likely ever since the attack on Ukraine began. Analysis from early March:


      “…Amid this escalation, experts can spin out an infinite number of branching scenarios on how this might end. But scores of war games conducted for the U.S. and allied governments and my own experience as the U.S. national intelligence officer for Europe suggest that if we boil it down, there are really only two paths toward ending the war: one, continued escalation, potentially across the nuclear threshold; the other, a bitter peace imposed on a defeated Ukraine that will be extremely hard for the United States and many European allies to swallow…”

      Ferg, the painter & decorator, here to wallpaper the forum with links to important stories in the UK’s lowest-selling daily newspaper.
      Must be a Civil Servant.
      They become institutionalised, over time.

        It gives people something to read and an opportunity of avoiding your asinine braying.

      2. Sara

        K. Cavan, the failed welterweight wonderman, is here to dispense his brain-damaged wisdom. Can life get better?

        1. anti bot

          Careful Sara, you identify as a woman, the sexist pig that is soq / cavan, will just come back with some sexist comment without answering any questions posed. eg explain why it is OK for Russia to invade another smaller nation and kill innocent people? 30 effing questions not 1 effing answer. eff off to another website if you’re mature enough to answer that simple question. eff off back to your home nation

          1. anti bot

            Because you personally attach every woman on here when they post, usually with appalling nick names. I responded, so why can’t you? is it okay to invade another smaller nation and murder innocent people?

          2. anti bot

            You do. Why do you call everyone names? Why not explain why you think its acceptable to invade another country? 35 times I’ve asked this question. why should a UK citizen be on this website? effing bot.

  6. Fearganainm

    Dozens of Bucha civilians were killed by fléchettes from Russian artillery:


    “…A team of 18 experts from the forensic department of France’s national gendarmerie, alongside a team of forensic investigators from Kyiv, have started documenting the terror inflicted on civilians during the month-long occupation. “We are seeing a lot mutilated (disfigured) bodies,” said Pirovsky. “A lot of them had their hands tied behind their backs and shots in the back of their heads. There were also cases with automatic gunfire, like six to eight holes on the back of victims. And we have several cases of cluster bombs’ elements embedded in the bodies of the victims.”…”

    1. f_lawless

      There’s a clear pattern here if you’re sharp enough to see it. When evidence emerges implicating Ukrainian forces, where possible, it will be spun in western corporate media outlets as evidence of Russian atrocities.

      Here’s a story from 2014, when the same type of fléchettes (see photo) were found after cluster bombs had been dropped in the civilian areas of Donetsk in the separatist region of Ukraine:


      ‘ “I have removed fragments of submunition weapons used by Ukrainians from the injured dozens of times,” said a surgeon in Donetsk’s Kalinin hospital, one of the facilities treating wounded civilians over the past weeks…

      ..Leaders of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, based in the separatist stronghold Donetsk, said Kiev’s usage of such arms amounts to a war crime.

      “There are dozens of known cases of usage of this type of weapons,” said the DNR’s deputy prime minister Andrei Purgin.

      “It’s a war crime. We hope that there is an investigation into these crimes so that an international tribunal judges the guilty, that is to say, the Ukrainian state.” ‘

            We’ll just await the Spectator piece on why this is actually really a loss for Macron and the odious brain fart Brendan O’Neill on how it proves proves the triumph of Brexit. Sadly the Excrement will have to can the “France on the brink” bs for 24 hours.

        1. stephen moran

          Well like him or loathe him he’s now the de facto leader of Europe with the German pacifists / appeasers (you decide) in a naval gazing sit on their hands brain freeze.

    The march of time: Unionism braced for an election that could put Sinn Féin in power


    “… Scott Wilkinson, 25, bedecked in badges commemorating Ulster regiments in the first world war, said Boris Johnson’s government had betrayed their sacrifice. “It’s like the middle finger to them. They fought so we could be as one.” England, he said, seemed to not care about unionists. “They’re trying to say goodbye to us even though we want to be part of them. It’s very upsetting.”…”

  9. stephen moran

    Looks like glad tidings all around on the elections front as chairman of the Melania trump Trump fan club Slovenian populist toe rag PM Janez Janša got a good shoeing from the the environmentalist party. The people have spoken.

    Robert Watt prepared to appear before one Dáil committee on Holohan secondment but not another:


    “Health Secretary General Robert Watt has let it be known he is prepared to go before one Dáil committee on the Tony Holohan secondment affair, but not another, the Irish Independent understands. Mr Watt believes he should answer questions from the Health committee, where he has previously address issues related to the Chief Medical Officer’s proposed transfer to a taxpayer-funded post in academia. Health Minister Stephen Donnelly and Mr Watt are both refusing to appear before the Oireachtas Finance committee on the matter, with the Minister pointing to another review in progress…”

    Dr. Richard Urso: “From [ages] 25 to 44, we saw last quarter of last year an 82% rise in deaths, so there’s a lot of data that’s out there that is very, very troubling… This lipid nanoparticle messenger RNA platform, I don’t care what you attach it to, it is always going to travel everywhere. It’s always going to be a problem. And that’s why you see the distribution of of disorders coming from this after the vaccines affect so many different organ systems because it distributes everywhere.”
