Losing faith with RTE myself, Brolly becoming very hard to listen to. Dick Clerkin is awful on Sky and the Senan Connell role always seems a bit superfluous to me, he must be there for eye candy for the ladies or something.

I watched the BBC lunchtime news about this, I thought the disruption costs and likely recessionary impact that were quoted were very conservative tbh, if that were to be the cost of Brexit it would put absolutely no Brexiteers off and would get a general shrug of the shoulders from the public imo. If Sterling  doesn't tank the general public will notice very little difference bar the initial border mayhem if the OBR forecast is anywhere near right.

Anyone been to Turkey recently? I know people who love it and swear by it, but it's never appealed to me.  it's meant to be regaining popularity among UK holiday-makers again due to the weakness of the Turkish Lira v Sterling. Could be on my radar next year if the Brexit clusterfuck  becomes a mega clusterfuck.

I can remember going on holidays after the crash in 2008 and Sterling was sitting at 1.07

Thought that was a pretty good analogy myself!

Have always been a cricket fan, got an interest one Summer watching Test Cricket as a youngster over the Summer holidays and it's always stuck, can watch any form, T20 has brought it to the masses a bit more. Some game yesterday, NZ will be wondering how they lost it.

Was out for a long cycle today around Lough Neagh and we were discussing the very noticeable amount of new builds, houses for sale and apparently empty looking new houses. A very 'Bubble' looking situation - one that Brexit could take a very big pin to.

Watching Waco on one of the lesser Satellite channels (Alibi / on demand) it is very good. Some big name actors in it for such a low profile show. Taylor Kitsch as David Koresh is brilliant.

Watched The Pearse Doherty grilling, he was fantastic. I don't follow politics much in the ROI, would he be a leading light or a potential future leader? It was mightily impressive.

Articles like that, brutal and all as they are, will have little effect with the blue rinse brigade who will effectively choose the next PM, they view the Guardian as akin to Pravda. The Sunday Times wasn't very complimentary to BJ at the weekend tho.
