At least 33 die in cold snap across Europe

Off you go with your hot chocolate, and get a good nights rest for your interview. You can catch up on Vinny any time. Good luck with that interview. :D

No one knows what is going to happen after Brexit has been triggered. It's only all speculation at the moment, all sides predicting doom and gloom and looking to make political capital out of it. When it gets down to actual negotiations we may well see a bit more intelligence at play rather than childish point-scoring.

No surprise, I suppose , that vulture funds weren’t needed to plug any gap in the economy, but simply to support the government's developer buddies in stopping house prices from dropping any further. Nice to see Donnelly and the Sinn Fein guy put Mick straight on this and call out the eternal excuse for what it is.

Quite amazing that our State made no regulations regarding Vulture funds?

They threatened ordinary people, many posters on here supported that, but ignored Cxxxs like Vulture funds....

Donnely begged and begged to allow families purchase their family homes as the same price..

So not only did they not allow this, they also allowed them Vulture funds pretend to be charities.

and pay little or nothing in taxes.
