The resurfaced video of Anne Robinson belittling a single mother on benefits during an episode of the weakest link. Made for rather uncomfortable viewing.

Not a great start to her new job on countdown.

Sheís the new host? Ffs!!

Itís not even remotely possible to discuss this subject objectively with people who evaluate Irish nationalism and British nationalism a two completely different things.

If I had a work colleague who put pro IRA or pro UVF things on their social media theyíd be sacked.

Who has the authority to sack them?

I think its pretty well embedded in our employment laws, your feet wouldn't touch the ground on way out, major no no, I think a lot of people forget we are trying to create a peaceful future for EVERYONE

So, if you post a photograph of yourself in an Easter rising commemorative GAA shirt or a photograph of you at Michael Collinsí grave, youíll be sacked?

I think if your post is deemed to contravene your work place social media policy or deemed to act against inclusivity within the workplace you could be on very dodgy ground. If you were found to be posting it during working hours you are almost certainly a goner now in the 6 counties.
You would be sacked in most workplaces in the north for the balaclava post, it could no way be described as a joke, embarrassing for him really-. He is a very big hearted lad, but as I said hes well known for being not the smartest lad in Creggan-he wont care anyhow he's the richest in Creggan by a long shot

But if youíre going down that route, sure you could be sacked for anything as some people will go out of their way to be offended.

Some unionists will say that the GAA isnít inclusive to them, so someone posting about a GAA match could be deemed as ďnot being inclusiveĒ, and one could be sacked for supporting his team. Same with a unionist posting about going to the Twelfth parades. Orange marches is far from being inclusive for Catholics, so some might find an issue with that.

What about Pride marches? Thatís not being inclusive to straight people. A bald men convention, thatís discriminatory towards those with a head of hair.

McClean gets threats to burn down his house.

I wonder if there will be any collective gesture at matches in support of him.

This promise of a bridge by the Tories to unionists. Reminds me a bit like what a husband would say to the wife

ďWhat? Eh? Yeah yeah, of course I love youĒ.

The only difference being the Unionists believe the Tories are sincere. The wife doesnít.

Liverpool remind me of Donegal in 2013. Collapsing spectacularly.

This guy sums it up well

he offers no alternative although i did get bored and might have missed it. was there one?

edit: sorry he suggests locking down all vulnerable and over 70s and provides his breakeven point for his restaurant. no holes to pick there!

Yeah, 55,000 came through the airports, but this is all tom dick and harryís Fault because they didnít wear a mask when they were buying their milk!

who has said benny? i certainly havent. just wondering if you seen my questions on your anti vacvine position. Genuinely interested in knowing more about that position.

the 55k though the airports are all tom dicks and harrys too i imagine.

Yes I seen them. Iím not sure what you want me to say on that. Will using a tv screen result in me needing glasses in the future? Does Alexa keep a record that I listened to 12 Johnny Cash songs last week? I canít see how itís similar.

I didnít say I was anti vaccine. You implied I was.

sorry i misread one of your posts and thought you said you wouldnt take the vaccine due to potential ong term effects.  will you take the vaccine?

I had listed some reasons why some people wouldnít get it (eg. Not in at risk category, have had virus and wasnít a big deal so donít feel they need it, donít know long term side effects, donít trust the pharmaceuticals/media etc etc).

But since you ask; no, I wonít take the vaccine. But I know I will have to eventually. Otherwise I wonít be able to do anything or go anywhere.

Drew Harris on the Late Late Show tonight.

Turbidy will ask the hard questions!!

If Tubridy had any bottle or nous to him as a presenter he'd ask him about the Glenanne gang.

The time Adams made an absolute tool out of the entitled hypocrite was brilliant TV.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qqRqWjR33o

Tubridy gave it the classic old line of "different time" etc and he soon shut up when he knew what was coming...lol.

The good old IRA and the 'blood on your hands" new IRA.

When the crowd starting clapping, Tubridy knew the game was up.

You could feel the bitterness in Tubridy.  Adams took him down a peg.  Great viewing.

Tubridy knew he was on to a loser asking it, but he was told to ask it by the head honchos, Iíd imagine. The same way Gaybo was told not shake Adamsís hand.

The proper solution is to lock down and isolate Ireland completely, and keep its borders shut until the rest of the world has stamped it out. No exceptions. Nil.

If that is not feasible, then we already have nearly done enough to open up again. Once the over 70s and high risk groups have been vaccinated, then Covidís potential to kill is minimal to none. Any measures between where we are now, and the complete isolation described above, is little more than chasing a rainbow.

100% agree.
