    Also did I not read somewhere that he had given up twitter because they refused to ban people he disagreed with?
    I had very limited dealings with him once.
    I don't think him and I would be pals.

    I have noticed that.

    I think he'd quite happily dish it at the Church but if someone wrote a sitcom about advanced soc.libs he'd not like it.
    Yet Catholics laugh at Fr Ted.

    His attack on anti abortion here in Ireland, linked into O'Gorman's campaign.

    Yet as the photo in Guardian shows he lives in London.
    UK Companies House shows him and wife resident in UK

    On the grounds that while she was wrong about everything, she was wrong in a more normal way than Trump was wrong.
    It's much more pronounced on the left though because the left in it's current pro-censorship mode is a threat to the actual livelihood of comedians.

    Some elements on the left are in danger of going the same way. There's a pofacedness amongst some of them that brooks no humour if it's directed their way.

    Well Brendan o Carroll as a left winger has imagination, as does his family.

    Their imagination is particularly strong when it comes to looking for tax havens.

    Don't think Brendan regards that as humorous though.

    right wing comedians face tons of censorship and public vilification. that is the real reason.

    Most of the acutely right wing people Iíve come across have a great deal of difficulty getting laid ,have often times wondered if it was a classic chicken v egg dynamic, had years of isolation and self pleasure resulted in their bizarre political views or had there inability to stymie such ideologies resulted in a largely lonely sexually repressed and thus very bitter existence.
