    Then why did you ask a question you knew to be incoherent?

    Do you believe Juanita Broaddrick's testimony, or are her claims a plot to make Bill Clinton look bad?
    Bill Clinton didn't assault children. I'm not excusing Clinton's nasty behaviour either.

    Mitsui as ever spot on. That was it exactly.

    But what was really nice, and Merc missed this bit of it, the ordinary people, they knew, without saying, and they were just lovely.
    And I was serious, it was like being on p.ie, only with sound . Rory O'Neill is just marvellous.

    Don't think like that. It was actually fine. Yea there was a couple of hateful people, but Joe was great, ramping it up an drawing them out, he couldn't say out and out of course, too clever for that. But he got there all the same by letting the haters go on. But what was great, as I just posted to Mitsui, it was clear that Ireland is a vastly different place and most people are very nice and very much live and let live. It had a positive vibe all told and Panty so nice, he's so on the ball, doesn't rise to any bait and it seemed to me he is doing great work. And for a pittance too. His own time, yea tax payers few bob to bring him over there, but it's his free time unpaid he was doing for the better good. Let them whinge about a coctail paid for by him under the Thai moon. If that's what keeps them distracted more fool them. (Anyone know what a mushroom cocktail is BTW, is it to be recommended?)
