General discussion / Re: Stephen Nolan's 500k BBC Salary last year!
« on: July 19, 2017, 07:00:04 PM »
He did some sort of a program a few years ago when he came Dine Site. I thought he came across as a complete and utter tool - fcuk sake - he was acting as if he was Columbus exploring Amerikay.
He captured perfectly the generic greater Belfast Protestant/Unionist who not only think Ireland is a different country but is also part of a different dimension. These plonkers have seldom if at all set foot in "Ireland" except maybe to go to Dublin for a shopping trip or a weekend in Donegal. It's mind boggling how ignorant they are of the land mass on which they live

Plenty of Americans don't have a Passport or rarely leave their state... I'm sure plenty French and Spanish have no need to leave their land mass either!

Plenty of Americans would drive the distance from Belfast to the border to go to the shop.

Still don't leave their state though! Just filled car their now, 20 dollors!!

I always laugh when I see the pay for our 'top stars'. I see some terrible broadcasters on the RTE list and the talk is that they get that because they are the best. But honestly I ask you in terms of BBC NI and RTE who is after these people.
Like Tubridy (495,000) and Joe Duffy (416,000) are on serious dosh here but if RTE said F off and we are cutting your wages they wouldn't have much places to go. TV3 can't afford them. The commercial radio stations don't have the cash either.

When I watch Nolan he seems a good man to get a row going but then can't really bring it down apart from being overbearing. I wouldn't rate him at all.
On an aside I am surprised Graham Norton is not on more. He is one lad who literally would have his pick of jobs.

Norton has one regular show and the Eurovision Song Contest where like his Irish predecessor bigged up his country... GB and he's on twice the wage

Saw that table on facebook, some ridiculous comments on it as well.

The figure for Antrim was 551,973 over 9 years (07 - 15).
Thats slightly over 60k per year - might just about cover 2 full time coaches so while its a big number, it won't go very far.

Still more than other counties no? Other counties that have done better let's say in juvenile or school

I haven't seen anywhere or heard anything from GAA folk that building Casement in Belfast will make us a better county, all I want is for Us to be able to use the dam place!!

Noticed some GAA funding over the years given to counties, Dublin top, no surprise but Antrim were lying fourth !! What have we achieved with that?  This was dated from 2007 till 2015 (I think)

I know all these margins are small but looking back at the league, we gave Armagh one of their hardest challenges of all in a no holds barred game. Genuinely could have gone either way. Now after exiting the Ulster championship at the first stage, as did we, they are in the final round of qualifiers with an All Ireland Quarter Final a realistic possibility while our senior footballers are kicking their heels waiting 7 months for a meaningful game. Small margins, big impact.

League games in the NFL won't represent how you play in championship.... leagues are playing, championships are for winning! Armagh had decent draws after exciting Ulster also

Jesus you lot are a sensitive bunch.... Years of poverty will do that I suppose

seems you have more in common with Jim Alister than anyone else on here

Unionist......check
Brexiteer......check
Spends time sneering at the ROI rather than engage in serious economic debate.......check

Unionist? Irish passport ......check
Brexiteer....... voted remain....check
Spends time listening to southerns moan about brexit and how better off the south is compared to everywhere else? ..... check
Engage in discussion on something that hasn't happened yet or no example of how it will pan out.... guilty


Ian Og has an Irish passport,it doesn't make him Irish,just a flag of convenience in case he might have to queue at passport control

from your own mouth

"You are getting me confused with someone who wants to be part of country with economic failings." Jim Alister wouldn't have said it any better

There are no shortage of Business people in NI worried about the implications of Brexit,considering a third of NI's export go south but then again that's probably moaning to you as well.

Bottom line your livelihood wont be affected as a teacher,but if you owned a business or employed anyone,it damn well would,because if its one thing Business hates its uncertainty.

You need to broaden your economic metrics beyond the price to you of a bottle of faustino and flights to florida.

Not a teacher, you'd need to broaden your trolling.. private sector all my life... brexit will affect me my work and life I'm sure but I'll like most just deal with it when/if it happens...

I'm as much an Irish man than you


"Its madness to be fair, but having worked on the Shankill for a right few years and teaching that age group, thats all they live for!! the bands the bony, the 12th, Rangers and Wet Wet Wet !! They generally cop on and most move away from it altogether but its a way of life unfortuately..."

A small i Irish Unionist more like,so your not as Irish as me or for that matter anyone else on here either

Have a read of this and see if this doesn't bother anyone who exports goods in and out of the Uk,but then again you'd probably discount these reputable sources as ill informed scare mongering also


http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/brexit-national-audit-office-amyas-morse-customs-check-computer-it-system-a7837811.html?amp

Taught totally in the private sector troll, as for the small i in Irish then you truly have very limited knowledge or more ignorance of the pesky northerns..

As for brexit I'm sure the North can use the tactics the South used when they were nearly bankrupt to get to were they are today... now if you want any more info about me just ask, you're wasting your time quoting my posts

Don't worry about it - Milltown said it'll be grand

Where did I say it will be grand? I've always said wait and see, not in control of it but the amount of experts on here is embarrassing...

Flight to Orlando yesterday from Belfast was full, apparently they have tripled their flights next year from Belfast due to the high demand...

You do know Brexit hasn't happened yet?

Yep, but they have tripled their flights for next year! So is it happening next year?
