What's Happening?
Oh Begorrah! What in the name of Jaysus is VinB trying to do to us?? On tonight's show, Vinny discusses the CPAII agreement again and analyses the outcome in considerable detail. Not a TD in sight.
He will also cover the ''gross inequality'' in Ireland (He has never covered that before :roll:). Looks like a proper snoozefest so please refer to the ''What Else is on'' at the bottom of the OP if you cannot handle the discussion tonight.


Update on Norm
After Succesfully killing Neutron along with his socks in a former Soviet Satellite State, Norm began his new mission yesterday morning.
This would be a rather easier one. It was simply to deliver a message to the King of a fly colony. Norm was unsure if this was an actual fly as in an insect or was it code for something else. We will discover that on Wednesday night.
Again, I must assist Norm with ground Intel tomorrow so Astral will cover the home base tomorrow night.

So Norm has gone to dry out for a few weeks? I am sure the Four Seasons Resort for the cure if grumpy old men will be savaged as he spends all day everyday in a mixture of facials, manis and pedis, salt rubs and Swedish massage therapies....

Norm has seen your inquisitive post via iPad from a secure location within the mission compound and he asks me to relay that he will deal with you next Monday when he returns.

Well Bea, Hows the lovelife?
I don't believe 'love' was ever the appropriate word for the ba$****.
I got a few texts over the weekend alright.
That's all.
But I'm having fun flirting with other men - some detail I'll have to drop into conversation.

Nice OP but I'm cutting back on my VB exposure these days cos I find it increasingly tedious and depressing... and I'm sick to death of Vincent's pet peeves being rammed into every 'discussion'...

Tonight with VB has become a total bore fest... imo.

I've cut out the Sindo recently too... and my Sundays are infinitely better than they were...

Just saying like... ;)

As I mentioned on another thread:

PS staff making over 150k account for only 1% of the total spend on wages, so staff making over 185k must represent a miniscule fraction of spend really. Only 18% of staff are making over 60K - so <82% of staff wont be affected by the base pay cut. Savings will be tiny.

I do not understand how they can justify no cut for people earning 30 -65K euro. Particularly those earning greater than 40K.

Dan 'The Bankers Man' O'Brien will be doing his best to sell Croke Park 2 to the masses.

Eoin Ronayne will do his best to represent his low paid members but wont really.

Father Seán Healy will moralise about the injustices of society at the moment.

When TDs are reduced to €40k they may have a leg to stand on. [As Pistorious' lawyer might say]
