I would give Gilroy the benefit of the doubt. I had to google the term coon. Probably my own ignorance.
It seems Coons is Cooney’s nickname.
Again from the same Google search.

I'd have no problem with the tweet, bar it was accompanied by a photo containing black kids. IF unintentional it is still ignorant.

The photo is what made it a problem.
But again, I put it down to ignorance.

Yeah I agree. The photo would make you doubt his intentions. Perhaps he didn’t have a decent photo of the 2 of them together, who knows. Giving him the benefit of doubt assuming it was ignorance.

Gilroy’s tweet and photo here.. https://www.uafc.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f= ... 9&start=30

This guy has his finger on the pulse anyway:

And will end up in a far worse one if it falls out of the EU on WTO terms at the end of the year.

Yes; it's great. The UK is in a 10 foot hole, & has a piece of string to get themselves out with; all the while a stream of raw sewage is pouring in.

Meanwhile the Spanish, & Italians are in a 12 foot hole, but they have a ladder & some mates to help them out.

Looks to me like Gilroy thought he was being funny. Absolutely no need to pick that photo out of how many hundreds of photos he would have.

That honestly was one of the most pathetic things I've seen on twitter lately. She's a prominent 'journalist' for the paper of record, she was presented with nothing but an infographic because I don't even think the person added any commentary, and her response was basically "whhhhaaaaaaa you're a man".

Another woman further down quoted the same thing at her, and was studiously ignored.

Hard to get people to think there is a constant crises when they're in one of the wealthiest countries on the planet otherwise.

was out for a walk yesterday evening and saw 2 different groups of kids in the neighbouring estate all sitting/playing with each other on green areas. about 7 kids in the first group and about 11 in the 2nd. No social distancing and not a parent in sight. if one of them is a carrier it will be going back to all their homes

That's not entirely true.

It also ignores the ability of groups to predict relative strength in the future.

Having seen the photo I am.afraid to say I am a bit suss about it. Not that that matters. On the young Corona what has surprised me is the number of young young lads out in particular. Groups of young lads aged 12ish all hanging out and burning bushes and being a general nuisance. Where the fück does mammy think they are

The Trots get a vast amount of airtime commensurate to their vote and what a fücking surprise this means they are transfer friendly.

I must admit I never understood the attraction of paying inflated prices for a lukewarm tasteless fry and shitty coffee, and then having to look at the biggest collection of unwashed, socially inadequate, weirdos while trying to eat the muck. I will admit that my experience of the place was before its latest iteration, and I like the idea of the place and the history, but it’s the last place in central Dublin I’d consider for food.

I am also pretty sure that the 'relative strengths' of 400 million diverse people with 80 million Germans at their center, spread out over a continent from the Med to the Baltic and the Atlantic to the Aegean , will have more than enough to deal with the 'absolute strength' of 65 million Brits led by an idiot, leading a cabinet of idiots.

The lunatics in general get way more airtime than they should. Our media is clearly more interested in controversy as it provokes a reaction - either clicks or texts into the show. The Healy-Raes probably get more airtime than any other inidividual politician. After them the left wingers seem to be on a lot - mostly Paul Murphy who, like the Healy raes, seems to get media access far beyond any mandate that he has. The Shinners at least had some kind of voter mandate but they have all vanished from the airwaves during the crisis - save for Mary Lou on the Late Late

She is alone amongst Irish journalists for being openly biased. Not even the pretence of Impartiality is maintained now.

And the media have allowed them disappear. They have strategised that only Louise O'Reilly will be on air and the media have rowed in behind them. I rub my eyes in cartoon fashion at the state of news media these days. It would be funny if it wasn't so dangerous and has.us on the cusp of a Shinner government with all its associated moral and economic hazards
