Not sure what the topic is for tonight, but judging from the panel, my crystal ball thinks it will have a rural flavour. Your guess is as good as mine. Probably, looking at the latest news stories and the effect they have on people in the countryside, if you know what I mean. A dolly mixtures type of show.

Anyway, does it really matter? Vinny is Vinny, and there are only Opposition TDs on - no Government representatives [hold on a minute, is that Pat, I hear banging on the front door!!]. So it looks like Dara will be held to account for FF’s past sins …

Just got the info that tonight’s show is on: Traveller discrimination; Magdalen Laundries.

Dara Calleary gives lightweight lickspittle buffoons a bad name. I hope he gets a roasting.

According to TV3 announcer:

"We ask: Is there widespread prejudice towards Travellers in Irish society? on Tonight with VB"

Is this a joke?

They're really going to devote a whole programme wondering whether or not there's anti-Traveller prejudice in Ireland?

Do they seriously expect the conclusion of tonight's discussion may turn out to be "NO!"? :roll:

A house was burned to the ground yesterday...that the council had allocated to a traveller family!

Mind you...programme sounds riveting...NOT!!

Late debate and the paper review says some changes increasing excemptions to be announced in property tax tomorrow.Might make tomorrow night more interesting. No doubt Paul Murphy will be "beating" down the door to get in.. ;-)

Tonights show could be about the dangers of long toe nails
and it still could"nt be worse, than that new comedy show
that"s just finished.
