Maybe Alison will get more out of the show than the previous surrogates. Thursday's show looks good.

I notice a snouter with nine syllables in her name will be on the panel. That, alone, is a reason not to watch.

The Irish drink more than anybody else.

But that's because the Gov, treat it as a luxury and tax it so...

3 people a day die from alchol....


How many people die a day from waiting lists?

There's that "we" again. Do people like Marcella Corcoran Kennedy realise what they are saying when they use this word. Here she is saying that she drinks too much alcohol. She is also saying that I drink too much despite the fact that I don’t drink alcohol at all. All the others are saying the same thing. Is it a panel of drunkards?

There is no excuse. What’s wrong with “Irish people, in general, drink too much.” We’ll criticize that if they ever get around to saying it. But one thing at a time …

We really need to do something about our waiting list culture in this country.

Youngsters are being exposed to too much of this waiting list consumption far too soon.

So people have more disposable income which they can spend on drink and Fine Gael want to make sure they have even more to spend on drink by cutting income tax! Well, well!

Wonder does that liver Doc have a community programme attached to the hospital for his "frequent flyers"?
I know we don't.
I did enquire of late and was told that's a brilliant idea.........
Still waiting!

Just remember, when a politician or advocacy group speaks out about something, take it as "INVERSE" propaganda" !...

It's new...

Ok...So let's ban alcohol altogether since we don't know who has mental problems who are going to be seriously affected by their consumption.

This is a country that brings American presidents and English queens to the pub for a pint remember.
