He never said it at all.

Never say people said sh1t that they didn't say!

Stop exaggerating...
O'Broin appears to have been pushing that idea on his Twitter Account, by supporting an SNP-Labour coalition.

I don't see SF in the South as anything other than useful idiots for Jeremy Corbyn, and an easy meal ticket, so they may as well go to Westminster, as far as I'm concerned.

The one under the picture of O'Broin with the leader of the British Labour Party?

He will probably refrain from talking about the idea out loud, but you can bet your bottom dollar that the idea has been discussed. I know how the Left in west Dublin think, better than they know themselves.

Our resident 'national socialist' has way too much time on his hands.
And by the way - his family are not responsible for his warped political ideas or the fact that he seems to have nothing better to do than spout sh*te on this forum (and probably many others)

So many lies to keep track of.

Anto. You aren't that important

Black Swan

Which poster called you a degenerate right winger, accused you of making light of rape and on which thread did they call you to be banned from?


The_SR

Someone called you a rat. Big deal

Black Swan

The account you are posting under was created today and your gibberish makes no sense.

F*ck off moron.

Black Swan

Keeping track of all your socks must be a full-time job.

Patrick Ronayne

No harm to you, but the amount of incontinent, unasked for 'confessing' that you're doing here suggests that you're the kind of guy who'd cough his guts up and admit to anything in the back of a squad car en route to the barracks.

making waves

oh holy bejaysus - we have two degenerates on here making light of a serious issue for rape victims in Britain - not surprising given who is involved.

If ye eejits want to comment on this serious issue - then please do so - otherwise p*ss-off with this kind of sh*te.

That's why I'm warning people about Political Irish being a potential security threat. Any account associated with an email address used to sign up, may be compromised if they used the same password on another account associated with the same email address.

Those who have any doubt, should change their passwords immediately. It looks to me as though PI was set up primarily to harvest information relating to its members.

The_SR

A mod can fix this very easily. Do Ratio and TG post from the same ip address?

TheKing

Antoin has already said he no longer posts there because of your claims, thats evidence that your malicious claims are already damaging that site.

Apart from name, email and date of birth no other actual data is stored by a forum other than a username and password.

How has this minimal data been stolen when you have already stated you have access to your account?

The Data commisioner will laugh at you!

Patrick Ronayne

I'm not really interested.

You've already referred to having been accused of unspecified crimes and your reputational damage is your own affair.

The Eagle of the Ninth

These fruitcakes spend most of their time on PoliticalIrish discussing the inadvisability of "race-mixing", the "coming Irish genocide" at the hands of Muslims, and "the look of the Irish". You can also get the sense a lot of them (well all five plus their socks) have had some major history of substance abuse and/or psychiatric disorders. They always end up accusing other people of grassing them to the Social workers or the cops.
Utterly bonkers, I wouldnt waste any time on their ranting.

The Eagle of the Ninth

The rest are just ... well, tiresome. AMC still persisting with his fairy-tales, is he?

The Eagle of the Ninth

And just before you accused everyone here of spreading the story you wet yourself in the back of a guards car

I am sure that if the support of your family was sought then it was on the basis that they didn't have the same 'national socialist' bent as you do.

As for your support not being wanted for a protest in Jobstown - if you made yourself and your political dalliance known to the stewards then you would have been ceremoniously booted off.

So now you revert to type - making the same unfounded allegations as your alter ego when your attempt at a pot shot blows up in your face.

I will not be responding to you in future - the issue of rape and the treatment of rape victims by the Tories is far too serious an issue to allow you to sidetracked it into this nonsense.

Ironic, isn't it, how the IRA fought for the Socialist Party and the British Labour Party in west Dublin? I look upon O'Broins support for Corbyn, the same way I view the Socialist Party support for Corbyn.

He says "if there's a Corbyn Coalition" & also reminded viewers that "Corbyn stated Corbyn would end Free Movement & back Leave"...

Does her disastrously run campaign not make you uneasy? She couldn't have done a worse job if she'd tried, which sorta suggests she may just have. They were all anti brexit from the start too, it was only the last gasp will of the people that won out. That arguably undermines my point, but I do think the machine would kick into full gear if given another chance to 'remain'.

I do agree with what you're saying from a logical perspective, but it's the illogical majority that seem to be in control everywhere we look that I worry about. I can't bring myself to underestimate them with any confidence. Hopefully we'll never get the chance to find out.
Yeah, given her staggeringly shambolic campaign, it's difficult to entirely fend off ideas she wasn't operating from some Deep State script. I mean, not debating Corbyn in the livestream age, lol? She had to be havin' a laugh. But I have to say, my overall reading is that the global establishment has largely abandoned the EU to die in some slow agonising death throes and politicians themselves are vain, simple creatures and wouldn't consciously countenance such wilful self harm. So I ultimately think a cryptic attempt to bolster pro-EU forces isn't what we are seeing here.

May, a deft manipulator of the Westminster village, just really was that senile among actual humans. Total mastery of her party created a yes-men entourage who hallucinated Maggie in May and so she was left striding into these staggering blunders unchecked. May is one of these trumped up middle class Tories types in Britain who likes to effect a regal distance in politics to compensate for class insecurities. But that approach isn't sustainable in the social media age and talking down to people whilst channeling the spirit of Stanley Baldwin with a couple of wooden stability slogans isn't the way to win a 21st century election.

I prefer a dodgy referendum because at least that's a public display. It's harder to shine a spotlight on shenanigans that take place in the backrooms where any counter-coup is more likely to take place. But, again, my reading is that pro-EU forces in high politics are dazed and confused and dislike of the EU among the English is institutionalised and widespread.

It appeared to be, if the polls were right. The problem was that the polls were not right and this ended up being somewhat like the Charge Of The Light Brigade for the Tories. There's normally a consolidation of voting intentions as the voting day approaches and this is exactly what happened. Corbyn was also seriously underestimated by people who didn't question the UK media narrative. In some respects it is similar to FG expecting to get 60+ seats in the 2016 Irish GE based on the clueless adjustments to the Irish polls at the time. It left a lot of Bluebots rather upset and made FG FF's proxy. The big danger for a Tory/DUP minority government is natural attrition combined with Corbyn's ability to rally an opposition. There will be resignations and, unfortunately, deaths in the lifetime of the parliament and those, if they occur in Tory marginal seats could shift the balance of power.
There was every reason to say Corbyn is generally well liked and respected around the country. He gets dogs abuse and remains happy, confident and unmoved in the face of it. That strikes a note with people in a very primal way and yeah, it would've helped him.

But it was still was a good move from May because Corbyn headed a party where his own shadow team was spitting in his face. There's no better time to crush your opposition when they are in spasms of a deep civil war. If that's not a time to declare an impromptu election, there's no good time to declare an impromptu election. Corbyn himself could be more popular than Santa Claus, electing a "team" to government who are visibly trying to deliver Corbyn the Columbian necklace is gonna be very hard to vote for.

If May had ran an unimaginative and adequate campaign, she would've clearly beat Labour technically and in optics as well. She didn't run an unimaginative and adequate campaign. The spirit of Nero took over her, she ran around with an uncosted book, fled Corbyn, she had nothing to say on cop cuts in the background of repeated terrorist atrocity, gave antiquated speeches befitting a politician in an interwar newsreel and did a violent U-turn on a centre-piece campaign promise.

I knew when I saw all this weeks ago hers would be a painful victory with all these shenanigans and that Corbyn would be vindicated -- if only in optics. I suppose like Enda, May lacks confidence in debating and thought a benevolent Elizabeth Windsor approach would do the job.

Corbyn said he'd end Free Movement & back the People's will/Brexit during this Campaign.

Theresa said her & Enda wanted a "Frictionless Border" months ago.

There could well be more turbulence in the Eurozone vis a vis Italy soon + more Islamoatrocities, leaving today's Result a one week wonder.


Remember both Corbyn & Theresa are suspected of being Secret Brexiteers...
