'north munster'

a few years after 1997, Portillo losing his seat was voted in the greatest TV moments ever by Channel 4 viewers maybe even got in the top 20 if I remember correctly.
seems like ancient history now, what with Tony Blair turning into a war criminal and all.

see also: Tanaiste Michael McDowell losing his seat to Green guy John Gormley and also being beaten by Boyd-Barrett who didn't get elected either.
but best one ever was Aussie PM and war criminal John Howard losing his seat in 2007.

No idea where to ask, and isn't worth its own thread so..


I've booked 3 beds in a "student accommodation" hotel for next week

You will be fine

1 - you are young at heart, and of attitude

2 - I have to think the hostel get a lot of it


The young people will gather around you and touch your grey hair & wrinkles and learn your wisdom, like Michael York and Jenny Agutter with Peter Ustinov at the end of Logan's Run

I've done this in Glasgow. It's fine. As long as you can deal with the indignity of going back to head to bed while they are all only on the way out.

Thanks guys.

We stayed in "The Generator" once and the only thing that stood out was when my girlfriend walked past a group of young men sitting in a hallway dressed only in small towels, one of whom had his balls out and stuck to the floor. I think it was some sort of mating ritual.

She reacted like she's seen a rattlesnake and would have clutched her pears if she'd been wearing them
