Anyone that thinks this is funny must have something wrong with them. Excruciating to watch, the peurile humour, plot and acting skills were embarassing, a very poor children's TV programme with lots of swearing.

Exaggerate much? There is TV on 7 days a week, people enjoy watching different stuff. This is perfectly watchable, if not perhaps one of the all time greats.

Anyone ever been to Antalya in southern Turkey before?

St Paul was there in 45 AD, lots of sinners in those parts.

Of course there is a split in SF.  Take a look at the representatives in the Republic. Theres a lot of bandwagon jumpers there who would be perfectly happy in the Labour Party, FF or some of the left parties.

Most of them more talented than any representatives in the 6 counties.

Canavan is the man to replace McElduff in West Tyrone..... according to the bookies anyway.  He might not have much political experience but he's well used to ripping Orange men a new one........ isn't that right BCB?   ;D

He might need Philip Jordan to do a dive to get over the line.

Footage of the historical first 45 metre shootout used to decide an intercounty game. Meath beat Longford 2-1.

Have they no floodlights in Navan?

I think Cavan took them.

Of course, you can only resign as a Westminster MP by being appointed to an office such as the Chiltern Hundreds, so Barry will be an officer of the Crown for a few minutes anyway.

Barry McElduff's resignation was most likely on the cards from last week. I'd guess that was the deal with the leadership, that he be allowed to resign and not be seen to be ousted by the sometimes faux outrage. Don't hold your breath on Unionist Politicians being held to the same standard, they have no shame.

I'd say the interview Alan Black had with Miriam over the weekend put the tin hat on it. You could see it genuinely hurt him and that as one of the victims there was no party politics at play. What McElduff did negligently or otherwise was wrong and he had to go.

Now they're saying it took too long which is true but hopefully it will allow us to hold the Unionists to a higher standard going forward as some of the stuff they have gotten away with is shocking especially Arlene!

You would think the seat is fairly safe although the Unionists are already suggesting a bi-partisan victims candidate which will make it very difficult for Sinn Fein

The cute thing to do would be for SF to support an agreed anti Brexit candidate, ideally a Protestant businessman. As Brexit is a once off this would not allow have their own candidate in the future.

First question...where do you stand on a United Ireland, Mr Protestant Businessman Anti-Brexit candidate??  This is West Tyrone we're talking about.

The diplomatic answer would be that if the Brexit is fecked up then there should be a border poll.

The fact that he had a Kingsmill loaf on his head is the issue. Regardless of the anniversary it's still contentious. He, and thousands of others, knows the connection between the name of the loaf and the massacre.

This thing about him not meaning any offence is nonsense as he is fully aware of the link. He should've used his loaf (pun intended) and picked a different loaf. Or better still, cop on.

Kingsmill may be a popular brand, but McElduff should have had more sense than to tweet anything about Kingsmill given his previous involvement in controversy re the Raymond McCreesh park naming, given that a large part of the objection in that case is because McCreesh had a weapon used in Kingsmills. Likewise having done this, he should stay out of the way for the next 3 months

And as for having political sense, he was pictured at work in the SF office in Omagh after he had been suspended, which suggests that someone has no political sense.

If you are going to be a political representative then you must accept that you are in the public eye, and you should not be acting the clown in public. If you want to send your daughter a picture of you with a loaf on your head then use Whatsapp, not Twitter. Likewise having created this mess he should stay out of the way entirely for 3 months, go and walk the Camino or something.

...yes they get that along with all the other crap that they don't want newborns to get?
You don't think that corporations who's unabashed goal to increase their bottom line would affect their willingness to ply the population with something that might have adverse side affects? Their track record would suggest otherwise.

Are we talking about the entirety of the pharma industry here, or the flu vaccine?

I was listening to a doctor on the radio there, the best plan was to be born in the mid 60s, as the new flu came along on 1968 and if you were first exposed to it when a child you have some longterm immunity.

TBH Puck I think that alot of people are concerns about the effect of the vaccine on their bodies... why do infants not get them when their born but its ok in utero. But the prospect of big business making money is a concern for the motivation also.

Infants in utero get the antibodies from their mother.
People are concerned with big business, but many of these seem less worried about big business in regard to the Iphone they use to post nonsense.

like all science and m#nedicence you have a choice who to belive
on one hand there the vast bulk of medical opinion who have spent edecades studying and peer reviewing and having work peer review getting  vaccines passed as being fit for purpose . allof who studies are in the public domain to be analyzed and criticized by anyone   
and on the other you have a few outliers doctors and academics Quacks Ayurvedists,  Biofield therapist , Bioelectromagnetic therapist , shamens and reiki healers , Naturopaths , acupuncturists madmen.women,holistics , charlatans Holistics , homeopaths , and others who advocate cures that are  disproven, unproven, impossible to prove, or are excessively harmful in relation to their effect; and where the scientific consensus is that the therapy does not, or cannot, work because the known laws of nature are violated by its basic claims; or where it is considered so much worse than conventional treatment that it would be unethical to offer as treatment.

I know who I choose to belive

It's a real head-shaker is that this simple fact has to be reiterated at all. But worse still is the fact that there is a frighteningly large cohort of people on whom it has no effect whatsoever.

In England, people voted for Brexit to get back at the "experts".
