In two minutes, these (British) Gogglebox viewers produced a more cogent analysis of the Irish referendum result than the entire mainstream Irish media have managed in seven days

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fdW4e-p7XA;&rel=0 https://twitter.com/tvcritics/status/1002672832357203968 Every single talking point is spot on. Not just accurate, but highly relevant too.

Begging-the-question, conjecture, anecdote, false equivalence, and a non sequitur: those five reasons for raising the Digital Age of Consent

Cormac Ryan has been tweeting about the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland and their letter to the government on the Digital Age of Consent. https://twitter.com/cormac114/status/994153428996718592 Cormac is right.

Man who introduced topless Irish dancing in the 1990s bemoans sartorial inelegance of today’s youth

https://twitter.com/MichaelFlatley/status/972480498160324608 Remember the old ways? They were the best. That's why people say: "The old ways were the best!"
