As always, following on Dr. X’s suggestion, it’s all yours, “announcements, general discussion, whatever you choose”, feel free.

Great to see the locals in Dundalk taking the piss out of O’Doherty’s and Waters roadshow yesterday.
As well as TPM they were booed , not welcome chants and confronted by ordinary people out taking their walk. Well done to them.

Wow JW and OD what a bunch. V. true the anger. And the continual whinging and moaning. The other thing is the sheer disdain and contempt for the people they purport to represent. Everyone is a sell-out or a patsy except for them. I don’t know. There’s such a lack of even basic thought.

Love the guys doing the other protest on dial-up etc.

Brilliant intervention by TPM. Ridicule is certainly an effective weapon against such clowns. Bit close to the bone about dial-up though, it’s not that long since that was all that was available out here where I’m living, maybe 10 years or so!

Louth elected two sinn fein td’s, who seem to have topped the poll, imelda munster and Ruairi o’murchu.
with gemma and john, there is a spirit component that they take into account.
Will be tremendous though, when Drogheda builds those 4,000 houses, and a direct rail with Belfast.

It looks like Johnson and Cummings are in a right mess. So soon and staggering so after a massive electoral victory. Incredibly, the puppet master dug himself deeper into the hole in that rose garden interview. And now a phrase that he probably crafted is coming back to haunt him. I am thinking of Johnson’s constant mention of ‘you the people’, the very same people who are affronted understandably at what’s going one here: don’t do as I do, do as I say. The inflated self importance of deeply unlikeable Cummings thinks his conduct will not be held to account and that BJ will be lost without him. That’s why he may not be thrown under the bus … yet.

Dublin Airport’s twitter account responding to a query about a plane that’s been circling for 4 hours:

Apparently, the pilot is testing his eyesight just to make sure he’ll be ok for a transatlantic flight in a day or two. Sorry, that’s obviously not the case. It’s collecting information for a mapping software company.

And a tweet from someone called Karl Sharro (?)

The British are finally experiencing what’s it like to have the British rule your country

Hahah, that’s genius. Though not entirely funny.


sonofstan - May 28, 2020

Yeah, funny cos it’s true. And also not funny etc.
It occurs to me that, 100 years ago, the incompetent but entitled products of the public schools would have been dispatched to some colonial backwater to inflict their lack of anything like ability on the natives. No the mother country is stuck with them.

Following the protests over the death of George Floyd at the hands of the police, US journalists report being shot at and arrested by US cops:

Kestrel,as I asked before – are you on the sauce or something even stronger?


WorldbyStorm - June 1, 2020

He’s a character. roddy on a different matter can I ask your opinion of a northern based website we’ve both been critical of over the years, have you seen it’s tipped into near enough coronavirus contrarianism or something a bit like denialism, I’m wondering do you have any thoughts about what’s going on with them?

WBS if its slugger otool you are mentioning,I have long given up on trying to fathom its purpose.Its owner Fawlty is an anti SF obsessive and beyond SF bashing there is no rational basis for its continuance.I at one stage put it down to the mindset of an uncle Tom from Hollywood but at times I think another organisation from Hollywood may be behind some of it.


WorldbyStorm - June 1, 2020

I could be! It’s odd, even five years ago there was a good mix there. But I’ve noticed in the last year it’s got so partial that a lot of republican and nationalists have departed it. That’s more thanbad enough, but the last month or so has been a revelation even on top of that. The complacency and willingness to accept the UK govt line or explain away the discrepancies and contradictions was one thing. But the last week or so they have posts from people putting up what tbh is ill-informed (to put it Kindly) stuff about coronavirus etc.

Video of the week has to be when 3 thick cops tried to arrest a black FBI agent! See Paul Patricks twitter account!
