What's Happening?


I'm afraid, it appears to be more navel gazing from VinB and guests. Discussing CPAII and the response of the Unions. No doubt the GRA will get some attention for the calls for police strike action including marching in uniform, which if done by the army would probably be labelled a coup..
Should provide some sparky debate between the public and private sectors again. Meanwhile the government looks on at the infighting....you guys :oops:.
Anyone else notice fewer quality guests coming on air lately?? Anyway should be an interesting show.


Update on Norm

Last night, I got word Norm had reached the hideout of the crazy scientist hell bent on creating a cloning machine. All that was known was that his name began with 'N'. What happened next, astounded even me!
Norm, along with his mule: Kimora, flanked the building and entered via a hidden side door. Some semtex had blown it off its hinges and Norm and Kimora entered. Alarms blasing, they ran towards the epicentre of the operations. And there it was, the cloning machine. But that wasn't the biggest shock. The scientist known only as 'N' turned out to be: Neutron. That's right, the former Piester. And out of his cloning machine, came his creations that he called ''socks''. They were named Ibrahim Muhammedand Bobcolebrooke. Norm was up against it now! two on three. Sick of Kimora, Norm lit the top of his bag Kim was carrying which was laden with semtex. Kicked kimora in the privates and swung him at the three trolls. Norm ran and ran until he was out of the building. Booooom!
The Building and Neutron were no more..it had only cost the life of Kimora. Mission Accomplished.
But Norm had received orders this afternoon to prepare for his next mission. Tune in Monday to see what's next.
To be Continued....

What Else is on?

If it becomes a snoozefest like last night, you may want to watch The Jacket on Turner's Classic Movies at 11pm. About a marine who gets sent to an asylum. Looks ok. 43% rating on Rotten Tomatoes: The Jacket - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The negotiations are summed up best by a poster on this site who I can't remember;

"Accept a paycut or we will cut your pay".

When you've already lost at the start there's no need to negotiate.

Should go some way towards balancing the gender bias on this site.
What kind of surgical intervention would bring balance to the vb show?
would it just involve the removal of a bollix .

Now now...Just because he has FINALLY decided to get in touch with his feminine side, does not require sexual reassigment!!!!! I hope it does not have any affect on his personality?.... Mama should be happy.

Anyway Norm... Left or right, She or He... We love ya!... All god's creatures are precious and loved!

P.S... Can ye have a quiet word with her/ him self about our politicans?

The thing that strikes me most about the talks is that the savings being sought are very modest.

A billion over three years is loose change in the overall context of government spending.

You're a bloody genius, do you know that? I'm constanly gobsmacked by your Vinnie "what's on" threads. I am in love with you. No, I'm just jealous. Such talent. I hope you are getting paid for doing what you love to do. No, not that, writing I mean.

Vinny gave RBB a particularily heavy grilling about Uncle Joe's departure from the ULA.It seems Uncle Joe wasn't impressed with Clare's close realationship with Micko.

But it is a BIG wad of money when it's been taken out of a pay packet that has taken a 14 - 25% cut over the past 3 years or so?
