We’re spoilt for choice tonight. What with The Frontline on RTE ONE and BBC1 broadcasting the Panorama Special: ‘Jimmy Savile - What the BBC Knew‘, at 22:35 [and then BBC iPlayer] clashing with Vinny‘s show and not forgetting the usual Newsnight on BBC2 which has additional questions themselves to answer, Vinny could be a bit strapped for viewers tonight.

But he does have a good show lined up and good speakers to tell us all about the Kenny-Merkel statement. What exactly does it mean? Is it deal or no deal, or even (horror) double deal. Worth viewing even if you have to drag yourself away from the other programmes …

Liam Twomey,Liam Twomey? With the news of late and Hollande's use of the word 'retroactive' today
I would of thought a more senior government TD. Perhaps Brian/Leo/Lucinda or Pat.

But Liam, one of the three of late that make up the Ballymount wallpaper, the other two being Peter Mathews and Richard Boyd Barret.

Are some TD's staying well clear of Vincent and I don't just mean Enda.

Now what to watch? The Frontline with Pat is bound to be depressing and he will annoy me, Panorama will not cheer me up either so it will have to be Vinnie, at least he has a sense of humour and he might annoy someone else, other than me that is, always good entertainment!

doubtful as Vinny is from Limerick

I'd say it has more to do with Enda being a coward

This is what the Sky Box was built for, record one channel whilst watching another!

I wonder will Vinny have a new studio like they did for the 5.30 news?

Nobody needs to pray for this government to fail , they are incapable of anything else , except lies of course .

Good man, Norman allowing women in, fair play to you.

A clique?? And open to women too?? Oh dear.

Just watch the paranoiacs open a thread complaining about how the women in the clique are winking at people behind the paranoiacs back, and the mods had better stop it, they're all in league with one another...etc

By the way, Norman, when you say that women can join the group, do you mean the way that Vinnie lets them join his show....You know, sitting prettily tossing their hair and fluttering their pretty eyelashes while they read nicely from tomorrow's papers, or mind the twitter machine, or some pretty little girly activity that will not be too taxing on their cute little ditzy minds....?

Or can any class of a woman join--even the "stupid bints" and "ball-breaking b1tches" and the "annoying screeching biddies" that are so frequently referenced here?

Well, women don't seem to want to join in the fun!! No women in Backstagers yet, afaik. I wonder are they afraid of Norman's reputation? Don't know what they are afraid of. They don't have to get into the shower to join the Group, you know.
Although getting their kit off for the lads would be regarded as a gesture of goodwill which would greatly speed up the application process...

... GG20. Have you lost your specs? There is no application process. There you are again, presuming. You follow the instructions given in the OP. It's entirely up to you. And membership is open to ANYBODY who has contributed to a Backstage thread, like this one. I don't know how that can be misinterpreted.

So, press the buttons on your laptop, and don't try to be pressing mine ... :D

What's the Raw show? Is it a kinky kind of show?

That's a bit unfair GG,

Niamh Lyons, Sarah Mc & Karan Devine all recieve comments about their attractiveness,

But they also get lots of compliments about their intellectual contributions to the show,

In fact, the last time Karan was on, she recieved more positive comments than any other guest in the shows history,

Finding a women attractive isn't sexist is it?
