And the item before with Sheila Killian was just ridiculous.. I'm sure that if she ran a business it would be like the Caramel bar ad with the bluebird flying around and landing on her shoulder... But she certainly wouldnt make any profit..

It's very easy for her to tell others how to run a business when her own wages are from the public bankrupt purse.
If she is so concerned, then she open her own and see what its like in the real world.

Same goes for the union leaders, then they can give their employees massive wages and pensions.

Myles doing a big boring segment on Pensions. Employees/Presenters must be nervous about their jobs over in Montrose

Kent Brockman is interviewing men who live in Hostels.

"looking back on your life, is there anything you regret?"

condescending rubbish.

Heard the podcast on the hostels

I suppose I was expecting interviews with people slurring on alcohol
Maybe that's my own prejudice


That ex-journalist sounded incredibly bright and articulate
Just a few events close together put him on the streets, sad.
If it could happen to him it could happen to anyone


I'm liking Myles Dungan and the job he's doing lately

Much improved Myles this stint, obviously being kept on a very tight leash.

Pat Kenny and Rachael English are still the only RTÉ broadcasters I'd rather listen to!

Same here, although I'd add Sean O'Rourke's name to that.

I just got on to make similar remarks so glad im not alone in thinking this. Myles has clearly significantly raised his game recently. He used be as dour as ditchwater and an auto change station. He must have undergone a fair level of retraining so fair play. Pat is still the GOAT of broadcasters.

myles worried about people not paying a tax.

wonder why ?



i have to admit to being at a loss to the tack hes trying on the expenses though. the gov do ALOT worse on things for themselves (hogan and his tax avoiding advisers for example)

bert and co must be laughing at that line of questioning.
