Yeah I know. Was just point out the fact in case some one read somewhere else that a deputy pm was out and about that they have 7 deputy PMs 
The Belgian government seems to be a bit like the European Ryder Cup team with all the vice captains

Very important role - Jose-Maria Olazabal was key to the 2010 victory when he was asked to leave his role as a TV analyst and step in as a vice captain half an hour before the Saturday foursomes when there were six matches instead of the scheduled four due to a rain delay

Captain Colin Montgomerie said that Europe would not have won without Olly

Those are very sobering numbers. Do you have the similar ones for Europe? 

It would damage this forums' reputation

I wonder does Monty get lucrative corporate speaking gigs in Belgium telling them how the captaincy structure of the European Ryder Cup team can teach Belgian politics about best practice governing techniques

Paul McGinley must have made millions at this stage telling our corporate leaders about how business can learn leadership techniques from sport

Similarly Nigel Owens has taught our best and brightest business brains so much about how workers' rights can be kept in check by exerting a detached, friendly yet authoritarian control

Do the US count deaths the same way we do here? Where even if covid isn't the cause of death it is still marked as the cause?

Interesting I caught a few mins of this morning on itv and there seems to be far more casual questioning of the lockdowns on mainstream media in the uk than there is on rte here.   

Now we know where that has led to over there but its interesting to observe the difference.

Covid not being the cause of death would be something like having a Covid cough and then being knocked down by a bus

I don't really get this thing about Covid supposedly not being the cause of death

It's an accelerant that ruthlessly seeks out weakness in the human body and causes death

Sweden I believe does not count any Covid deaths beyond a 28 day cut off as a Covid death - even though they are

Firstly, and most importantly, is everything alright? Because people normally need to be mentally unwell or going through the menopause to watch that!

The British media is an absolute sewer. There isn't one trustworthy source available over here and would question every little thing about it. I certainly wouldn't be upholding tabloid television as an example of anything!
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Media makes all the difference

Brexit could not have happened without Murdoch and other right-wing crackpot media

Neither could Trump

We do not have our own versions of Brexit and Trump because we do not have Murdoch media

What we do have is an entirely self-confident fringe of demented lunatics who feast on the noxious crumbs thrown out by our mini-demagogues like Niall Boylan, David Quinn, Ciara Kelly, George Hook, Kevin Myers, Ian O'Doherty etc.

Well now that you mention it I do have a few hot flushes and feeling kinda dry 
The point I suppose is that the uk media is shocking but I think rte should probably help itself a bit more with a bit more journalism and less repeating of the press conferences George Lee style.   It's a balancing act.

Maybe RTE should get somebody on to tell us why the US is doing a great job and why we should be like them

Not wanting mass death is sneering elitism now, say the billionaire right-wing think tank guys

I'd like to see RTE platform somebody who argues that we should drop all efforts against radical Islamists

Just to shake things up, upset the cosy consensus

Sure what's a few bomb and truck massacres

Death comes to all of us anyway

Those people who died at Nice in 2016 would all have died anyway, even if most would probably still be alive now if they hadn't been killed that night

Abolish the health service

Death comes to us all anyway

Healthcare is sneering elitism from the Islington set

f**k, my Mum just got a heart attack

Somebody get an ambulance!

There's no journalism on This Morning! The programme itself wouldn't claim that.

Sid you know that's not what I am saying. That sort of hyperbole doesn't help.  An article like cliff Taylor's yesterday is the tone of what I am saying that rte could do with having on.   

Of course the right winger nut jobs should not be anywhere the tv

I know there isn't PM.  The point I making is that even casual disagreeing with every recommendation is not found on rte. That's not healthy.  I was saying  even a sh*t programme like this morning has some sort of questioning.   Not ebethybung on this is binary.  There is nuance and rte so far has been an extended arm of the state that's not good for.the state as it leads to conspiracy theorists wet dream
