What's Happening?
In light of the controversial broadcast charge, VinB will examine the implications of such. No doubt RTÉ will get a bollicking from the TV3 station who does not get taxpayers money to fund vacations to Rome...I mean the Vatican.
There will also be a discussion on the cuts to the mobility grant because of some legality.
I am beginning to think that TD's must have been on this mobility grant because none have come near VinB in a while.
Is Vinny starting to lose the run of himself....??

Update on Norm
Yesterday, I left Astral in charge of the homebase while I was helping Norm with his important mission. He may have given you all the impression that I was fondeling Swedish Models. I must make it clear, it was only a model, i.e. not plural...
Anywhoooo....Norm's mission as we found out Monday was to deliver a message to the King Fly.
It has become clear that this leader of all flies likes the colour Red. Norm has tracked down the location and find out tomorrow what happens when the message is delivered.
To be Continued...

Starting? STARTING? Get a grip man, he lost the run of himself aeons ago!

What appears to have happened in recent days is that Lydia and Ann-Marie have reduced the strength of his medication and as a result, he's gone stark bonkers. That recent pussy fight with Dan O'Brien was the most cringingly egotistical load of pure Vinnie-wank that I have ever seen. If anything similar recurs, then TV3 should sack him.

Vinny will go ballistic over the mobility allowance. If some masochistic government TD could be induced (with plenty of alcohol and exhortations to "swallow hard") to come on Vinnie's show tonight, the other three won't get a word in.....

Vinnie will be: "Did you or didn't you...? I'm asking you did you..? Stop waffling...That's not what I asked you...Answer the question"

Oh Lord....

i can actually see vinny going for it on the broadcast charge but dont be surprised if you see shane and tom being coy on it.

the "BAI sound and vision fund" , or whatever the hell its official name is - is the private sectors slice of the liscence fee and TV3 , newstalk and today fm will be fecking straight into that trough as quick as they can.

its why youve heard them say fup all about the liscene fee in recent years. Its fecking crumbs but watch them go all gollum like for it.

basically the private sector broadcasting set is bought.

should make for some fun viewing though :D

Vinny is becoming ever more idiosyncratic by the day.

The other night he was saying everyone should be paid the same. You'd wonder what world he's living in.

Unless I went mad there, I think Norm is back?
Nah, he hacked into RTE's link from Italy and got online to cause confusion.......

You should have been at the Convention Centre this morning, he was most subdued, whether through lack of sleep (9am start) or he takes the meds in the morning and they have worn off by 11pm.

From the TV3 website:-

"Tonight with Vincent Browne is a unique, topical issues panel show presented by one of Ireland’s most respected journalists. I agree with the word "unique"

The programme is hard hitting, intelligent, probing and entertaining. [3 out of 4 ain't bad!]

It has no boundaries and deals with issues from current topical matters, the affairs of the nation, economics, politics, sport and culture. " Hmmm, it might have been more honest to have said that "it deals with whatever tangential aspects of current topical matters/affairs of the nation are of concern to its presenter, at a given moment."

Has Norm been discharged yet? Just wondering if he actually fought off bravely the advances of the Swedish models, or if Gats managed to take a few of them out with her six shooter?
Did Rus finally stop crying into his tea?

Has Hitch managed to find a woman yet or is he still taking things in hand?

Jebus on a pushbike........if a plane had to crash in any event this'd be the spot..............so long as Vinny was late for work!
:D

Why do I not like that McGurk chap ?

You feel he's the kind of guy would be throwing shapes in front of a mirror while scanning "Rugby For Blowhards: The Pocket Edition"

Something....inauthentic about him..

You changed Hooch to Hitch. Personally I think Hooch is a good name for it.

The concentration of so much irrelevance in one place is affecting the Space-Time Continuum. Who the f*ck are these people and why do their opinions matter?
