It used to be a mechanic's back in the 90s. There are a lot of decent pubs in the area. Hard to grab a foothold.

That Porterhouse Whitworth was a weird spot, never seemed to get much business and kind of hung on there. I guess if you're in the same area as pubs called the Gravediggers and the Brian Boru (plus the Bohs pubs on the corners) you're gonna suffer. Probably suffered from proximity to town too.

Anyway I'm interested to see how this will cannibalize Back Page crowds.

Edit: There's also a legendary pub in Phibs that only take cash.

It did a roaring trade with the late license and 2 for 10 cocktails on the Sunday. Bald Eagle stole its lunch after it changed IMO. It never got that back from what I saw. It wouldn’t really be competing with the bohemian, the Hut or even the Brian boru(which appears to be the same 15 people every night).

7.50 for a bottle of ginger beer....you’re not on the Southside now lads.

Lads, looking for a bit of holiday advice - thinking of heading over to Lake Como/Lake Garda for the start of September next year. Any recommendations? Any idea what it might be like weather-wise?

Obviously the food will be great.

When the weather breaks, it breaks.
Was in Pesciera a few years back.
I’d check the forecast at this time of year.

The area is probably overpubbed. A new spot opening there will need to offer something different to do more than fine
They'll need more outdoor space to do a Bernard Shaw on it

Unanimous judgment in the British Supreme Court. Interesting.

Edit: Justiciable!

I think they're about to do it. Fúck. This is class.

wouldnt be a fan of David Quinn but he pointed out this morning the amount of grief Jeremy Corbyn gets for his loony left tax plans for people earning over £100K until you realise that the tax bill would be lower than it would be in Ireland yet no one is calling out Fine Gael on it

I hope none of Unas hipster pals get lost on their brave trek to phibsboro and accidentally end up in McGowans with The Nursies, Guards and PO's, talk about a clash of cultures

It's a power grab by the Commission, using competition law as a Trojan Horse to gain some competency in individual nations tax laws.

And should be rejected by all countries.

Unfair tax treatment is perfectly allowable to be challenged as a form of state aid. Commission is not over reaching in that regard at all.

Where they at times fall down is their interpretation of tax law and whether it is unfair or not. As a (very very) general rule if a certain tax measure is available to anyone in a similar situation in the same country it is not state aid.

Agreed.

But the commission are seriously over reaching in the Irish case.

They are suggesting that Irish law is not applied.

Anybody watching the BBC4 show about the Troubles?

Really good use of archive material and interviews with key players. The IRA guy Des Long is just bizarre.


Last night's show was almost scary. They interviewed the the guy who procured all the timers for IRA bombs (Hyde Park, Enniskillen etc) & brokered the deals with Libya - his only regret is that he couldn't do more damage. They also interviewed the US guys who organised the smuggling from there.

They had more clips stating unequivocally that Gerry Adams was on the IRA Army Council.

It is a really great series - probably deserves a mention on Mullet's documentary thread.

True but the Brits were always an ally on this issue......it will get harder for us in the future to hold out against the big boys.

For quite a while Ireland & the UK were "fighting the good fight" against the French & German led push for harmonisation. Of late the East European countries have weighed in heavily with us (& the Dutch to an extent - Rutte is not a fan of French-led interference in his economy).

Yes Britain was against encroachment of EU powers.

Currently France is a billion miles away from getting anywhere on sending taxation powers to the EU. Scandi /Benelux/ Eastern / Ireland are all against.

That said, would harmonising taxation issues be that bad if done properly? France has introduced a digital tax because the digital economy has started to replace the high street with sales in France bypassing France completely (Amazon / Google ). Ireland would do the same in their shoes. Your going to get a hodgepodge of taxation laws in EU countries that the large corporates are going to use the route sales / set up shells to avoid tax, something the grocer isn't going to be able to do and will lose his margin / business as a result. If you introduced a common framework at least you would have a straight bar to jump over in the whole EU - it would then be for the country in question to decide at what height the bar is then set.

Disagree. The investment would tend towards the big countries if the smaller countries weren’t allowed to compete to make themselves more attractive.

I'm not advocating that Ireland lose its 12.5%

I'm advocating that multinationals are not as freely able to move things around to reduce their tax bill - the framework how tax is calculated.

On a fundamental level it's f**king nuts that Starbucks have intellectual property... They sell fking coffee. How does Joe's coffee compete with Starbucks when Starbucks get a massive reduction in their tax bill compared to him.
