Sorry folks, but I haven’t the foggiest what’s the topic for tonight as I haven’t been given info from tv3. I’ll have to fill in the details on the grid as we go along and I hear the broadcast.

Denis O'Brien's Libel case is the main topic for tonight.

Kieran O'Donnell is a clown.

He is the guy when Bruton led the putch was given Brutons job, accepted it and then a few hours later announced he was supporting Bruton

I don't have Saorview, can't get any Irish stations, yet we pay the Licence. Oooooh, I'd love to see that one in court - I'm a no-body, don't have a chance.
