Enjoyed that.  Jamie needs to have a serious talk with his broadband provider. Typical politician style answers from Joe.  Jamie asks a question and Joe proceeds to talk about something else  ;D

Enjoyed Joe’s not so subtle dig about seeing Jamie recently…’standing on the top of a blue wheelie bin addressing six or seven people…’ 😂😂

I can't think of anyone better to take "themmuns" on head to head than Joe. In this regard he is top notch. Can't see too many queuing up to take him on.

There is a real niche here for Joe if he manages to get the balance right about when and when not to go for the slam dunk, go easy on the wine beforehand and play a medium long term game that most of us could reasonably get behind.

There's dozens could offer  GAA punditry, but remarkably few with the all round credentials to nail political narrative like Joe.

I agree with that Bannside. If you put aside Brolly's narcissistic tendencies and penchant for making everything about himself, he is a captivating orator with intelligence, knowledge, first-hand experience of the Troubles, and a seemingly genuine desire to make society a better place. He could really make a difference if he harnessed his strengths and reined back on the silly stuff a bit.

Brolly never gave wee Bryson a kick of the ball at all, “ I hear you’re a legal executive, what’s that “ smirking away flat out, no contest!!

The only thing I learnt from that is that the internet is faster in South Belfast than Donaghadee.

He gave him a kick of the ball by agreeing to debate with the areshole in the first place. Giving credence to this self appointed spokesman for loyalism who can't even show his face in Shankill is a joke. This is a clown who stood for election and got 167 votes. Koko the imaginary gorilla had more people voting for it. That odious bastard Nolan can promote him for his own sectarian agenda, but it doesn't mean the Dungiven gimp should.

Wow…that’s a lot of anger right there. Chill man. Breathe.

In that debate Joe was Yoda, Jamie was a babblin' incoherent mess with a bad microphone and shoddy camera. Joe explained that old trope about the Kevin Lynch named club naming very well.  It's 40 years on, why are you still questioning it.

Yeah it wasn't so much a debate a schooling.
Bryson couldn't even answer a question when asked about what difference a sea trade border actually made to him. He did a good job of shining a light on the faux unionist outrage which is really just fabricated to win votes from the knuckle draggers.

I watched it last night and enjoyed it. Bryson is a rabble rousing ego maniac with nothing to offer anyone bar his own self promotion. I do believe Brolly exposed the flaws in the faux unionist outrage and Bryson just rolled out his tired old ill informed and sectarian rhetoric.

Bryson is a loser, an ego-maniac who is utterly out of his depth whenever he leaves the safety of his little domain on Twitter. Anyone with so much as a semi-rational argument would dismantle anything he has to say, Brolly killed him with kindness while simultaneously owning him. Embarrassing stuff altogether for the Donaghadee QC

Thought Joe done well here and the debate was interesting, and fair play to Bryson for having him on.  Nothing wrong with it.
