Amazing how the Garda allow a terrorist organisation march through the centre of Dublin 2 days after they murder a journalist.

Oops, just noticed your post, Jackie. At least there looked to be fewer than two dozen of them. Shouldn't be too hard to trace them all.

Anybody in or around Bangor will just shrug at this: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-48273922 A 20th anniversary celebration of the first plan. No doubt this will go the way of all the others possibly, even probably, because of... wait for it... you can see it coming a mile away... no Assembly Minister in place to make some big decision or other.

Don't know for sure if Belfast International is the shytest airport in the world but it has to be at least Top 10.

Gareth Bale offered £1 million per week tp play in China. Fair play to him for not accepting.
Here's a question. How long would it take for a bloke on minimum wage to earn what he would have earned in one year. I make it about 3,300 years. That's a long time before Rome was a twinkle in Romulus's eye. It's about the time of the Israelite prophet, Samson. It's a couple of hundred years before the Zhou dynasty in China even begins.

Of course this assumes that the minimum wage worker earns today's minimum wage for the full period. Clearly this won't work. In practice, a bloke on the minimum wage of the day (stay with me on this) would have to have had his firat job as a child minder for Mr and Mra Dinosaur. In other words, he would never have been able to start early enough to make up the gap.

In the other direction, on a level rate, mimimum wage man will have to work until around AD 5320 to make up the wage. Allowing for inflation, I suppose you could knock of a few centuries, maybe even a millennium.

Another way of looking at it, Bale would have earned as much in a year as 600 NHS surgeons.
