The Irish Nationwide thread

What do you mean “again”? Might’ve bought an Evening Herdald once or twice in pre-tabloid form thirty-five years ago, but I don’t think I’ve been tempted since. I thought I was being clever opening the odd Irish Times article in “new private window” to get around the paywall … until I realised I don’t exceed the ten article weekly limit anyway. The question is why anyone ever bought a paper in Ireland. They long ago lost any remaining utility with the invention of the kerosene impregnated firelighter.

So somebody had to tell the directors of the largest private property investment company in the state that there was a property bubble and it couldn’t continue indefinitely? What were his qualifications? Top chap? Friend of the boss? Mouth shut and rubber stamp?

Norman Stanley Fletcher…

Christmas is coming and the geese are getting fat
Please put a penny in the old man’s hat
If you haven’t got a penny, a ha’penny will do
If you haven’t got a ha’penny, tough shit - the taxpayer only bails out rich f*ckers
