I thought it was an excellent interview and he was absolutely right about journalism in the papers and the quality of some of the postings on forums that just appallingly slate a perosn and dont engage in real debate.Hobbs positively mentioned a website, askaboutmoney so the point he made wasn't that all content is bad which would be stupid of him but more the false and defamatory nature of some content. He's right about it only being time before a site owner loses his shirt in the High Court. His point about journalists relying on website gossip is accurate but he drew a distinction between good and bad hacks. The deterioration to which he referred presumably are the UK redtop tactics.
Overall it was very frank and he's been right about gold, germany and even cape verde. The money was lost in Irish property, bulgaria and other areas. He's a young family and I don't blame him not wishing to expose his kids to having a politician for a Daddy - because Hobbs would shake things up. He's much more of a street scrapper than Lee or Macker. Didn't know about how long his involvement went back, to 1992 - thats a long record.
I agree with you.While Im not sure about the legal angle, I tend to agree with everything else he has allegedly said. 70% of the content on this site is pure boot boy canon. I include a lot of my own posts in that charge. I think its more a case of the Sunday Independent mendacity infecting this site rather than the other way round. They certainly inspire a lot of threads. I used to wonder how the NAZIs turned an intelligent people but I no longer wonder, after seeing the way the Sunday Indo tabloid values (masquerading as serious journalism) pervades this site.
That's a bit of a gem. petunia
but he was advising this entire country to invest their money in Irish property companys , who were massively over exposed in Ireland , Bulgaria and other areas . And its not hard to be right about germany and gold being safe investments . Not since the 1930s anyway . Not pointing out Ireland was heading to hell in a hand basket , for me at least , casts severe doubt upon his credibility as an economic forecaster .Overall it was very frank and he's been right about gold, germany and even cape verde. The money was lost in Irish property, bulgaria and other areas. .
what ? hed start offering TDs out into Kildare street ? all Ive ever seen of him on telly is a bunch of thicks like myself staring agaog at him and thinking hes clever because he speaks confidently on issues most of us are ignorant of . That and Pat Kenny blowing smoke up his ass celebrating the boom time that never was . Hardly adverserial stuff . At best i could imagine him tut tutting to a lithuanian shelf stacker in centra about how , and why , the sausage rolls are cheaper in Lidl up the road and how hell be making a nifty saving by purchasing them there instead - on his debit card and not his credit card .because Hobbs would shake things up. He's much more of a street scrapper than Lee or Macker.
