On a serious note, coming out with sh&t like this is irresponsible from a so-called human rights activist. How are companies like Lidl robbing us everyday?! They provide a great service for families in disadvantaged areas especially. He's a twonk. That's my new word for today, twonk.

And then there's stuff like this, where he can't just answer a question without having a go at the settled community.

He's an irresponsible fool. He said the only reason the Belfast rape trial went the way of the defendants was because they're rich and middle class. He has such a chip on his shoulder it's unreal. He can make willy-nilly generalisations about swathes of people, as stated above, but if you mention any bad behaviour by the Travelling community, you're a racist. Funny how every one of his major roles on tv and in film have been him portraying scumbags. Such range!

He’s a massive wanker with a massive chip on his shoulder.

He’s a typical traveller who thinks he and his ilk are victimised by the rest of the country.

He makes a living by portraying travellers in movies and tv shows. Every character he plays is a scumbag who adds nothing to society. Hmmmm....

He's a nobody that did astonishingly well - the stars aligned for him and I admire what he made with what he had to play with ... but there are no hidden depths to the man.

It would be like me playing the part of a guy doodling on the net when he should be revising for exams to huge accolades.

Doesn't seem like the sharpest tool in the box yet he is regarded as a highly revered member of the travelling community.

Not the best representative judging by his tweets. He is only further destroying an already poor image.

True.

''I’ve heard from directors and casting agents my politics doesn’t help, not least the Traveller movement which I speak out about.

“People are not picking up the phone. Without blowing my own horn that is the best performance of my career and I haven’t had one offer since.”

''My goal in the New Year is to go to the UK to try and get representation and take it to the next level. Being a Traveller ain’t helping me in the industry. It’s also a class issue.''


Maybe you're just not that good John. Cardboard Gangster played by a cardboard actor.

Everyone uses the bankers but to be honest with the last crash we had them by the balls and what did our guberment do... Yes you guessed it gave them all the power back and even sold off nearly all the shares so they can't touch them.

What was stopping them keeping the power and running the banks to serve the Irish public.

We have gone from 1 working family to 2 in order to maybe some day been able to buy but rents are out of control so it's impossible to save.

He played a crooked developer in that Charlie Haughey series that RTE produced

That was a serious miscasting, he was woeful but then the entire production was pretty bad. Ah Tom Vaughan Lawlor as PJ Mara was good

John Connors is not known for his wide range
