Re: Latest poll and FF

Jabba the Health sprayed with red paint by protestors today. A taste of things to come? That was bang out of order, no place for that. Harney should have walloped her with the shovel..I would. She has the poisoned chalice of portfolios and is actually one of the better ones out there. and a SF coun...

Re: Sports events 'must be on free TV'

Did anyone notice in Thomond Park this evening the RTE cameraman making a mad dash to get behind the posts followed by the assistant dragging about 300 feet of cable everytime there was a penalty or a conversion ? I have yet to see the tv coverage of the game so I cant comment on the quality on scre...

Re: Pay TV Poll

You should let people pick more than one option for a truer reflection... I considered that but then thought that it might cloud the issue, so I decided to try and cover most bases. If you could pick as many options as possible and ticked Sky, Setanta and ESPN then it may have been three separate p...

Re: Top Team of the last 15years

I still have problems with the inclusion of Rocky. Top team last season, no question. But he has only played 1 season in the HEC and to include him ahead of others who have had far greater involvement, baffling. :? I agree on the one season thing. However he did play 10 times better than most other...

Re: Norn Iron leaders debate on bbc 1 last night

You're wasting your time Orfeo - apparently describing people as Unionists or Nationalists is inherently sectarian and it's great that all the DUP voters were voting for a pro-devolution party, except in Belfast East where Robbo was rejected because he's anti devolution...oh, if more than one perso...

Re: Norn Iron leaders debate on bbc 1 last night

But I think we will just have to agree to dis-agree as you wont answer any questions in the spirit in which they are asked , there is no point in saying the Alliance Party are a cross community party etc etc, they are a Unionist party as you well know . don't you mean I wont answer any questions in...

Re: Norn Iron leaders debate on bbc 1 last night

Myles , The Unionists have known since day 1 that the game was up since then everything has been about putting off the fatefull day, that is why they took six counties instead of nine. Everything is about saying no and delay delay delay and it has been incredibly sucessfull, even Michael Collins ass...

Myles , first up- I don't mind a bit of banter, humour and irony, but does everything have to descend into a slanging match. I don't agree with your views but I respect your right to them and you might accord the same in return. Now back to the discussion - a couple of questions and a comment for yo...

Myles why would you say I '' am aghast at the possibility of change'' in Northern Ireland ? I fail to understand how you can draw any conclusions at to my point of view just because I dont agree with the your analysis of the whys and wherefores of the election. Can I also ask do you classify The All...

hold on a second....when presented with the facts...do you finally ACCEPT that the unnionist voters in east belfast swung overwhelmingly towards a non-unionist party? . But you never said "swung" Myles, you said " [East Belfast] Unionist voters voted overwhelmingly in favour of a non-Unionist party...
