Obviously this guy has thought long and hard before posting that?
I'd imagine you are expecting far too much from him!

The man makes a living for MSM (Sunday Times Journalist) and he knows where "his daily bread" comes from and he is not going to jeopardise his livelihood.The same reason Dudsey Baloney and D'Arsey are prepared to spout BS every day on the wireless , their big cheques are at risk if they don't conform to the Régime Propaganda.

In this morning's "Today with Claire Byrne", Pravda operative Byrne interviewed Sammy Wilson of the DUP about the withdrawal of workers from the port at Larne following alleged intimidation. Right at the end of the interview, Byrne tried one too many times to haughtily sermonise the bould Sammy on DUP politicians allegedly using the threat of violence to get their own way on waivers on trucks coming into the North from Britain from EU inspections. As she continued to rile him, he responded, that she needn't look at NI at all but instead she should look at the behaviour of politicians "from your own country" blatantly and cynically" using threats of violence and even showing pictures of blown up border posts - Varadkar's carry-on - and she should "look far far closer to home"!

Sammy can be an almighty pain at times but it was a right auld laff out loud at him bursting Byrne's smug condescension.

Result: Wilson 1 Pravda a big fat ZERO.

So why are the printed MSM so keen on pushing the scam, much to their own detriment it must be said? Could it be because it will hasten the end of print sales and so give them an excuse to go wholly online? After encountering a few small straws in the wind I wouldn't be at all surprised.

I for one don't read them online either. And haven't turned on the car radio since July.

All these blue tick scum "journalists" are just touting for Government jobs for when their employers crash and burn.

As John waters said, newspapers had at best 10 years to live, so they probably decided to take all the government propaganda money to live like kings while they had the chance.

I have more respect for my Loyalilst fellow Irishmen that I have for the 26 County cattle.
