Why anyone pays their slightest bit of attention to what Rory says is beyond me as he is just as likely to say the complete opposite next week. He definitely comes across as not the brightest lad around, even when talking about golf tbh and is liable to come out with any oul guff ewhrn asked a question during his media duties.

No doubt he has a brilliant talent but when things go slightly awry with that talent he hasn't the foggiest clue what he might be doing wrong unlike other less talented people who have had to put more thought and work into developing their skills.

Having said all that it is extremely difficult to maintain the highest levels in golf and very few players have ever achieved this as evidenced by his status in Major roll of honour. If he has underachieved then so have a lot of very very talented golfers.

Harsh words by Frankie.

Is there anyone from Roscommon that's even half wise, makes the Rossie posters on here seem sensible, and that takes some doing!

He's a cautious manager.  The English FA gave Southgate a new contract in the middle of the tournament.  At least see how they perform in this tournament.
Tonight Kronos should be the difference in midfield for Germany

Looks like it's his time right enough...

Social media platforms seem to help people develop obsessions to the point where there is no room for any thought other than SF/Covid/Libtards/Trumpians/Liverpool/Freestaters etc [delete as appropriate].

Some people manage to develop the ability to be obsessed by more than 1 topic whilst there is an elite school of dicks who can be a complete tosser on every thread going and manage to steer it towards their particular bugbear regardless of thread title or subject matter.

I have noticed some longterm posters who were relatively benign over a long period of years and who engaged across a range of subjects slipping into the 'obsessed with a specific subject' category.

Be interesting if someone did a study of the how this process happens.

This is not an affect of social media.

Social media makes it more accessible to share some of these opinions or participate in being a dick; but mail groups, bulletin boards, newsgroups, web 1.0 pages, blogging, discussion forums etc..... have been around a lot longer and still suffered from the same sh1te.

I was including these in social media platforms, maybe wrongly.

I'm after any advice after getting myself into grief with a landscape gardener. Just before the first lockdown i had employed a landscape company to completely renovate my back garden for a total cost of £10,000 which included some building works and removal of materials. He started two days before the first lockdown in March 2020 and then disappeared promising to come back once everything opened up, at this stage i had foolishly given him a deposit of £2500 and then another £3500 on the second day for materials the same day that he left site never to return.

After many false promises, lies and dodged phone calls i got a solicitor involved and he has come back with a promise to pay me back £500 per month until the debt is satisfied. My solicitor seems to think this is the best outcome but i have reservations such as what if he goes bankrupt in the meantime, what if he just stops payments or the payments are late/missed.

Note the payments to him were bank transfers directly to his personal account.

Was he a limited company or a soul trader?  The reality he could go bankrupt and you’ll just add the list of creditors. The only way to protect in my way is to take him to court, get a judgement and then if he doesn’t pay it enforce it through the EJO. That’s a time consuming process, with no guarantee that you’ll be any better off than under the current arrangement. I would get the repayment plan detailed in a repayment agreement which in the event of non payment would be useful in securing the judgement. Civil debts are a painful debt to chase

If he's a 'soul' trader you best just pray you get your money back...I'll get my coat...

Don’t let the door hit you on the arse!

And you a solicitor tsk tsk

You can be sure that if there is any public money being spent that there is a large amount of chicanery going on and that a fairly large percentage of it will be spaffed uselessly. The circumstances of the pandemic only served to inflate that percentage of waste.

And if anyone ever again votes for that dick that complained about not getting travel expenses they deserve all they get as he is clearly a complete gouger of the lowest order.

I see they’ve invented sorry discovered a new variant in India now…

And, along the same lines, who are they?

I shouldn't even ask, but I'm curious as to how your mind is working through to these conclusions.

Ach FFS how many times do you need to be told,

Soros and Gates along with the rest of the New World Order.

Donnie O'Sullivan (Kerry Man) who works with CNN spends his time interviewing conspiracy theorists and people who have been radicalised by Trump/Facebook/The Internet/etc. He is worth a follow.

A lot of it comes down to the fact that the world we live in is very complicated with nuances that are just not easily explained. And for people with a low intelligence or mental illness (even a mild one), these things are difficult to get their heads around. They seek solace in simplicity, it's all shady governments or big pharma or big tech. The world is pure chaos. Like a pandemic for fucks sake. It's just mental to think 18 months ago this was unimaginable. People struggle to understand and to explain it. They need a simple explanation and the reality is there isn't one. They then take an even more dangerous path into conspiracy theories.

If you find yourself in this spiral you need to stop. Reach out to someone and seek help.

Aye, and I’m sure the British government/media put it about since the early 70’s that Bloody Sunday and Ballymurphy were conspiracy theories. Were  the families of both atrocities just “conspiracy theorists” for continually pushing for proper enquiries and ultimately, the truth? Were those seeking justice for clerical abuse conspiracy theorists? How about the families of the 96 Hillsborough victims?

If this pandemic has reinforced anything, it’s the amount of times we have been continually lied to, and we just cannot trust politicians , governments and media. Anyone  rolling the eyes at people taking an alternative view has to ask themselves 3 questions: do you trust everything politicians tell you? Do you trust everything governments tell you? Do you trust everything the media tells you? I will guarantee 100% of the posters on this forum wouldn’t answer ‘yes’ to all three, if indeed any. There’s your starting point...

You know what you are right. I don't always trust the British government. Or indeed the Chinese or American governments. But I would trust them ALL AND ALL the scientists when they say there is a pandemic, it is killing otherwise healthy people and we should get vaccinated (and there is a number of different vaccines)

You think that all the "big" pharma companies in conjunction with all the governments in the world, many who cannot stand the sight of each other, have put their differences aside to enslave the entire world population?

We can all pick out something that happened previously, and use it as fact that nobody can be trusted, but it simply isn't true. You can not trust the Briitsh government on one issue but you can on another and you can trust or not trust them on lots of different issues to different degrees all at the same time. The world is chaos it is not black and white.

I didn’t deny the virus isn’t real and isn’t  killing people. Let’s face it, we Live in a sinister world with shady people and dodgy organisations, out to do whatever it takes to get power And money. If you think they’re not capable of deceiving people in one way or another in reaching those goals, well..

FFS Benny. If that’s the case you could literally pick any scenario and claim it’s true. When asked for evidence just come out with some watery spiel about dodgy organisations, big pharma etc. Thats why your points come across as wired. There needs to be at least a mouthful of meat on the bones for a theory rather than mumbling about dodgy corporations.

Sunik (or whatever his name is), Hancock and Luke O’Neill have been proven to have financial interest in big pharmaceutical companies. And I’d say if they delved deeper, they’d see a hell of a lot more politicians and “experts” linked to them too.

Reeks of John Taylor racism.

As said before Stormont has one more life left.

What is the alternative?

I would be more positive. Whilst I can see things getting worse first ultimately Stormont will work. Whilst we are still in UK Stormont’s powers just revert to Westminster (I.e. SoS and NIO). They will do what the can to create political pressure for Stormont to come back.

Even in a United Ireland the same pressures will exist - just replace Westminster with Dublin.

But to even get to a UI you need to convince the people of RoI that this is a good idea. People will ask the obvious questions. What will it cost and what do I get for it? Right now the answers to those questions are (i) a lot and (ii) a problem. It’s not attractive. The more dysfunctional NI is the less attractive a UI will become.

Stormont has to work. The people of NI need it to work and Irish Nationalism needs it to work.

To extend that I also think unionists need it to work.

We all need it to work.

My point being that in the past many republicans thought it was in their interests for NI not to work. By now only the extremely hard of thinking could still be of that opinion

Equality is the issue and every attempt at equality is deemed to be a gift from unionism and that is wrong even when the facts are staring them in the face.

If it's not 50/50 policing, it'll be the ILA, it'll be not having a nationalist justice minister or something else. All bigotry dressed up as something else.
Heck wasn't Jim Allister complaining that too many nationalists were passing the bar exams and something needed to be done to address this imbalance.

WRT approving the DUP (Joint) first minister, the Shinners need to be not seen as the intransigent ones yet hold Poots to the NDNA and force it through and show who are the intransigent ones..

The last point is key. And the next steps are obvious.

Approve the appointment
Publish a draft bill
Bring it through the process
Reassess position if/when you encounter intransigence

In the meantime get on with governing the place

Smelmoth you must be an SDLP supporter as your glaring lack of political nous is such a good fit for that party.

Gerry Adams stated a few years ago that equality would break the bastards and tbh over the past 5 years SF have had to do nothing other than sit back and watch as the monolith that was unionism repeatedly bashes itself and breaks apart against the immovable object that is equality of one hue or another.
