TONIGHT with Matt Cooper, Mon 16 Jan 2017 to Thurs @ 11pm




A current affairs programme from an alternative perspective, focusing on issues of income and inequality,
as well as seeking to hold institutions and powerful people to account.

This week Matt Cooper gets a turn in Vinny's chair. A big week this ... Tessie lets us know on Tuesday what's in her mind for Brexit, and Donnie gets his big inauguration bash on Friday. Well now ... I can't wait ...


Monday 16
We look at how Brexit is likely to shape much of the debate in the Dáil this year.

Cooper is such a bore. Another Corkie media bozo with an over-inflated sense of his own abilities. Would rather watch paint drip

Are our political masters deliberately spreading panic for their own ends? "Do what we say, now, or all will be disaster."

O'Brien talking about sending the wrong signals to Europe. As if Europe gives a ************************ about us.

I actually like how Cooper reads out the tweets after each break.

Seems to be very keen to demonstrate his right on credentials.

Planking it.........IW protests and Apollo House coming in after Brexit and Trump has rattled them bigtime and now the DUP have been found out and collapsed the government in Norn Iron....

They thought they have managed to get over the hump when there wasn't any real disturbances back in 2008 And they had to get the tanks out to guard the empty ATM machines...

I'm afraid Cooper is not able to control the talking heads. In fact, he interrupts as much as anyone. It's at times like this that I long for VB.

1 in 4 people in the entire country on free travel. That's astounding, and pretty sickening considering that it's commuters that are paying full whack and get no guarantee the free travel pass will exist when they retire. That's more than 30 years for me :(
