    We should dispose of the moronic fiction that we're a neutral country and recognise that our "neutrality" was merely a childish expression of anti-British petulance at the beginning of our independence.

    Anyone who is anyway informed knows it's a sham.
    Useful way to stay out of foreign wars on one hand but still keep "special relationships".

    I think most travellers are grand

    It's the 99% that give the 1% a bad name.

    No you parroted the aprooved PC line of official Ireland which has no basis in reality but which is essential to progress in politics or media

    Oreos are sh*t

    Nando's is just ok.

    Oh for Jesus sake. Do try to keep up.
    What you posted isn't an unpopular opinion. It's an extremely popular opinion.
    That's what Bertie was getting at.
    I suspect he holds the same prejudicial discrimination against travelers as you do.

    My unpopular opinion 2 - it should be perfectly fine to point out spelling errors to people on internet forums.
    If you don't tell people what is wrong, how do you suppose they learn?

    It's often the people with atrocious spelling and grammar who start threads too.

    Are we taught enough about spelling/grammar in school, or did people just not pay attention? :confused:

    Travellers are not descriminated against unless discrimination now means being immune from the laws which apply to the general population in various ways

    What makes you think it's your responsibility to point out what's wrong and educate others?

    And your discriminatory view is a very popular one.
    You do realise that this thread is called "unpopular opinions"?
    What are you finding difficult to understand about that?
    That's what Bertie was alluding to.
    Do you still really not understand?

    Boards should oblige people to post under their real name. You can close your account if you want, but you can't open any more.

    It would cut down on 90% of the eejitry.

    Hold the phone... Oroes are crap. Over-rated pieces of gick. They get far too much love. If I ever do a biscuit tournament, they're gone in the preliminary rounds.

    PS- this is my real name.

    A man should not be forced to take on financial or other responsibility for supporting a baby he doesn't want, for example an unplanned pregnancy, one night stand with no protection etc.

    To clarify, I am pro-choice, but a prospective mother has the right to abort a foetus without recourse to the potential father, so I think it's only fair that the man should have a choice too.

    Exactly, and you'll notice the pro choice women are usually demanding the man pays..

    Cats are superior to dogs and many people.

    We sat again for an hour and a half discussing maps and figures and always getting back to that most damnable creation of the perverted ingenuity of man - the County of Tyrone.

    It's not business. Business is regulated and they pay tax. This is simply ripping people off. Plus people get ripped off twice if the concert is cancelled and the money is refunded to the person who initially bought the ticket.

    dont get me wrong its not without issue. there are cowboys in all industries.
    that industry should be legal and tax compliant.
    but buying and selling tickets should not be ilegal . what they sell them for is not relivent once the customer agrees to it.
    i doubt anyone has ever been ripped off if they got a valid and genuine ticket for the event for the price they agreed to pay

    It’s not regulated because it’s illegal.

    What a funny thing it is that people in capitalist societies are ok with everything being resold for a profit - housing, shares, antiques and on and on.

    Just not concert tickets.


  • Registered Users Posts: 416 ✭✭uncommon_name


    The only issue with selling tickets is the amount of fake ones are being sold and how easy it is to counterfeit them.

    I think Irish should be taught in schools and be on signs etc precisely because education is about the transmission of culture as well as training. Irish before coding.

    Rote learning is fine as a teaching method.

    Coding will earn you money, Irish will earn you brownie points in a Gaeltacht pub while you are staring at your shoes wondering why you can’t get a job.
