    Default Independent Television news with John Drennan - incisive and erudite but will you pay?

    John Drennan on the week that was in politics - Independent.ie

    Scanning the Indo before the paywall is erected I came across this gem of political analysis from the colossus of Irish political reporting, John Drennan. sadly such urbane and insightful comment will be locked behind a paywall in the future and the muppets/yahoo's will no longer be able to access it without shelling out to dinny O'brien. the question is, will you pay to access such content or will Johnny;'s addresses to the nation be forever a tree falling in the broadcasting forest.

    Have just looked at it---and he is the political editor of the Sindo---God between us and all harm as Kitty the Hare used say--Dia idir sinn agus an tolc.

    Does a branch breaking and falling with nobody around make any noise?

    In this case lets all hope so.

    ...and what if I couldn't care what Drennan has to say when it is free ??

    Massive kick in the teeth ahead for the INM.

    We can manage without Drennan's opinions.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Has Johnny ever explained how his predictions re Gerry Adams' seat went so so wrong? The thread here on this is a hoot and shows Drennan up for the spoofer he is.

    I would willingly pay NOT to have to read the majority of the Sindo's columnists.
    Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach.
    Those who can't do either, are Sindo columnists.

    Holy crap...

    Just checked out the Indo website having not been near it for ages...

    When did it go all dark?

    Do they think they're running a night club or a pub or something?

    Looks crap imo... and I'll bet they shelled out a lot for it...

    Will I pay for access to that???

    Not a chance...

    The Indo is sh!te and the Sindo is worse...
