General discussion / The PPE scandal
December 21, 2023, 11:34:40 AM
It's getting interesting with that woman Michelle Mone in the UK having had her reputation destroyed and now coming out swinging. Looks like if she's getting sunk she's going to do her best to sink others with her.

Interesting viewing as they're all as bad as each other.

Probably a big can of worms.
General discussion / Mary Lou McDonald biography
October 10, 2022, 04:08:29 PM
What is the story with this? It all sounds a bit strange. (Hard to see anything objective on it as it seems to be just digs at sf or Ross and then some at RTÉ thrown in.)
GAA Discussion / James Horan gone

Resigned a few hours ago.
General discussion / Boris Johnson

It would appear the wagons are circling.

Is he finished?

Sounds like PMQs could be entertaining today though I still can't bring myself to watch it as it will just be one lie after another.
He's doing an article / debate with Jamie Bryson about the psni. Jesus :o
GAA Discussion / Jim Gavin

Surely merits a thread of his own...

Be really interesting to see who is next. He did some job.
General discussion / Devolution
July 09, 2019, 04:48:26 PM
Things getting interesting in Westminster.

Abortion rights and gay marriage, if I read correctly, could get voted through by the end of the evening with the proviso that if or when stormont get back up and running whatever the outcome is can be overturned.

The snp who originally weren't going to vote on it have given members a "pass" as it involved devolved matters which they normally don't vote on.

If either of these get voted through, whether or not you agree with either, this would be a real boot in the balls for the dup.

Seems like Conor McGinn, formerly of here, the driving force behind it.
Hurling Discussion / Ulster hurling
November 17, 2018, 11:37:01 AM
Interesting article from an interview with micky "wing"

Pretty much confirming what a lot of us thought that a lot of people in positions where they are paid to give a shit don't give a shit about ulster hurling.
General discussion / Primark fire in belfast
August 28, 2018, 10:03:10 PM
Really sad to see this today. The damage done on the building is horrendous. I don't know what will happen for the poor employees.

Walked past the fire fighters near the odyssey this evening. They seemed to be running the hoses from there all the way up donegal quay to the fire. You had to feel for them looking at them as they must have put in some shift today.

Is it correct that in junior and intermediate there is a 5 year rule where you can't play in that championship game? Does this apply to football and hurling? (I had thought cookstown had competed twice within 5 years in the football at intermediate level?)

Seems odd, and not great, that this rule applies only in ulster.

General discussion / Paul Kimmage

I see kimmage has moved onto the gaa and seems to have the dubs as his latest crusade. Anyone listen to him and luke fitzgerald?

The guy at this stage just seems very demonised. His criticism of dubs seems to be cynicism in the closing stages of ai final more than anythiing. ( gaelic football is just a reasonably cynical game and while i would prefer to see dublin beat i don't see them as any more cynical than anyone else).

Has he went as far as to mention drugs?
General discussion / Sean Spicer

"You even have someone as despicable as hitler, who didn't sink to using chemical weapons".

You have to wonder where they get these guys. It would be laughable but for the prospect of a russia-us war.
General discussion / Fake news, media manipulation etc
February 26, 2017, 11:23:05 AM

Interesting article on the use of big data modelling for political propaganda in addition to how it can be used to impact on human psyche etc.

A bit nerdy in places mind but very interesting / eye opening.
General discussion / Piegate

The world has gone mad.

Why did they offer the odds in the first place??

All seems a bit ludicrous.
Saw this today...

Interesting venture(nothing to do with me!) which deserves some publicity I guess!

(Haven't seen it anywhere else)
General discussion / The KKK
July 01, 2014, 08:40:16 PM
Surprised not to see a thread on this...

Sinister developments in east belfast with this flag going up. I wonder who's behind it.

Police talked to locals first then removed the flag. I don't really understand why they didn't just drag the flag down and then talk?

It seems certain elements in east belfast are very happy to let "ethnic minorities" know they're not welcome there.
Official apparently.
Hurling Discussion / Limerick not getting promoted
October 08, 2011, 06:45:08 PM
Talk of them boycotting the national league due to this...
