    Solidarity to boycott Newstalk

    Excellent news this morning: Solidarity are to boycott Newstalk: https://www.irishtimes.com/business/...ting-1.3219814

    So we won't hear the patronising palaver of Paul Murphy and his clones or Fintan O'Toole for that matter.

    Unusual step for a political party in Ireland to cut of it's oxygen supply of publicity but maybe they didn't like the harder line of questioning on Newstalk anyway?

    Or maybe they have principles regarding who they talk to?

    Jaysis, keep an eye on all piers for George Hook. He's an old fool and he's apologised.

    So you don't talk to certain people based on your 'principles'?

    If you wont talk to people

    - then how on earth do you ever expect them to change their minds?

    BTW Hook has apologised for the question he asked

    If he hadn't then that would be another story

    - but he has

    So it leads me to think there is some other agenda at work here.....

    This could very well increase the listenership at Newstalk.

    Not having to listen to Copyourselfon etc...
