"Caitriona has done a lot of research on human rights during her stint in Baku"

Right now she's telling us about the story on Panorama about the Azeri who voted for Armenia, followed by a story about the Azerbaijan donkey spoof - also from Panorama.

Catriona watches Panorama....in her spare time she works for RTE.

Dunno, he said he went out last night with a few local guys, who he later said are gay, and that there was no problem.

Although if the Azeris were going to clamp down on homosexual behaviour I doubt if this week would have been the most suitable .

Unles they wanted shedloads of overtime.

Haven't heard singing like that since the last time I saw a Eurovision . His mastery of foreign languages is right up there with Healy-Rae's efforts in English.

Derek not far behind (if you'll pardon the obvious)..asking a Dutchman his height and getting the reply in metric asking "what's that in real measurement?" and then "did you come here on a bike?"....shades of his disastrous interview with the RTE Weatherman from Amsterdam when Derek got flummoxed after discovering that particular Dutchman was not gay.

He thanked the Sunday World for covering their costs and funding the trip out there so you irate licence fee payers can sleep easy.

I hope you include yourself in that 'brigade'...have you already forgotten your own venomous comments regarding John Murray's show coming from NY last year?

Haha I think it's pathetic that you went back through all of my posts there!

I've said that in one instance where the trip in question was *not* sponsored. I texted the show last year at 51551 and received a call from a producer saying that trips like that were budgeted for and it was quite normal for shows to go on one or two foreign OB's a year.

Also I have made no venomous remarks about John Murray's sexuality as many here have done on the Derek Mooney thread (this is where the adjective 'venomous' is appropriate, and not where you have quoted my previous post on the JMS thread). My comments on the JMS thread were not venomous as you have suggested.

For the record, I don't think it is appropriate for shows to be doing unsponsored foreign OB's in these tight times, although I will not regurgitate that opinion ad nauseum on the radio forum in a pathetic attempt to increase my post count like others here do.

*EDIT* Also I didn't mention licence fee paying in that JMS post either.

In fairness, you only have 18 posts. Not exactly a gargantuan effort to read them all and quote from them.

Plus your nick stands out.

Yea, all 18 posts. Took me all morning.


By the way, I wasn't alluding to the sponsorship/non-sponsorship of RTE shows going abroad. I was just pointing out that you said pretty much the same thing about a different show.
