Irish Politics

DUP-light is a beer?


#4870

Or as Ian P once famously described alcohol…the Devil’s buttermilk.

But apart from their views on creationism, dinosaurs, equal marriage, homosexuality, religious tolerance etc…they’re 100%.


#4871

Very troubling


#4872

No surprise. Same in every country. The rich control the media and dictate the message. They also write the history books. How else would there be such a huge transfer of wealth from the 99% to the 1%? They are criminals but very good at what they do.


#4873

Not sure where to put this but terrible news from Donegal tonight suggesting that 4 young Men have been killed in a car crash.

Shocking history of this type of incident in County Donegal.

#4875

Terrible stuff four young men gone in such a senseless way. Unfortunately an all to common occurrence in Donegal.


#4876

Could we start a Go-Fund me page? My heart bleeds…

A government minister has claimed he and his wife “simply couldn’t afford” a commercial rates bill of more than €15,800 for their pub after a local authority had a judgment registered against their business.

The Fine Gael TD earns €129,854 per annum as a junior minister, and employs his wife Niamh as his secretarial assistant on a State-paid salary of up to €44,726 a year.


#4877

I’d be more up for starting a go ■■■■ your self page for that poor unfortunate junior minister.


#4878

Clearly, an example of why there are too many TD’s and Senators in Ireland. The man is not fit for parliament, never mind a junior ministry.


#4879

If he can’t manage whilst owning a pub and having around €170,000 coming into the house, how does he expect the rest of us to get by? How can he vote for water charges etc for the ordinary folk?


#4880

because he is a pox. Like the rest of Fine Gael.

#4882

anyone see charlie “blueblood” o’flanagan on primetime last night? the most sickening speel of drivel i’ve heard in a while and i don’t say that lightly.


#4883

the derry girls have a debenhams in the background, ever-so-british, and the wee orange lass has a “32 Republic” dubs jersey on. reconciliation??


#4884

:grin:
You made me look again!


#4885

not at charlie o’flanagan i hope.


#4886

They are a busted flush. Totally found out. The party of law and order? Fiscal prudence? Probity and transparency? All lies.


#4887

Only one busted and boring flush around here.


#4888

Are you having a pop?
