Hm.On the other hand how many Fringe sports are going to get facilities in probably the most expensive property area in the country. GAA at the core requires space and a ball and a group. Whitewater you are a couple of hundred euro in before you can even try it. It's for rich people.
I encourage the demolition of all golf courses to be replaced with white water rafting courses. The docklands thing is just this weeks storm in a teacup (following on from the Grafton Quarter stuff) and you will not take it away from me. You'll have to make it as close to free as possible instead of 50 quid a go before i'll believe it's an investment in sporting culture in Ireland.I had to go off and finally look up this rafting thing because of the non stop shite talking.
Are you talking about this white water thing in the Docklands?
Because that looks class. There's one tiny bit of white water up on the Liffey, in the sluice by Lucan (I think), and that's it. There's absolutely fuck all investment in paddling, (or cycling for that matter) in Ireland. Whitewater slalom is a legit sport.
No one bats an eye when GAA, or Rugby or whatever gets yet another metric fuckton of cash, but build a facility for kayakers for... I mean, the first time in the history of the country as far as I know, and everyone goes apeshit.
Yes, had a good long conversation with a Labour voter over the weekend.Good thread on Labour's chances in this election. Feels about right.
At least they're still voting Labour.Yes, had a good long conversation with a Labour voter over the weekend.
"I just don't like Corbyn"
Nope, just a feeling.
They loved Ed Miliband who is "the same" as Corbyn. I can barely even remember Miliband's policies but just looked them up and the phrase "responsible capitalism" is there so... hmm
anyway they're voting Labour so it's grand.
Anyone ever seen Jeremy Clarkson and Jeremy Corbyn in the same room at the same time?There's a part of me that thinks what Labour needs is a race-baiting sexist prick in interviews who runs an utterly left, anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-war etc. policy in practice but just never discusses it. If it's broached in an interview he could just say that it's all lies and they're trying to shut down his truth and how could they accuse him of this as he stands here in his union jack suit?
Like Trump though, it'll only make them love him more. At some point people have to realize this?
this is mad. if there's one thing that could swing an election it's the prime minister grabbing a journos phone and pocketing it to avoid having to look at a picture of a sick kid in hospital lying on a pile of coats
Nopedo we really give a shit?
Corbyn's complicit in the whole Brexit mess.You may be right, we've definitely opined that that might happen throughout this thread.
But being that Corbyn is in the IRA we should get the north back either way. hurrah!
