lmao that Brian boy is a rascal may he live foreverReplyDelete
He is both talented and funny. He probably annoys a lot of people with his take but that is satire and caricature for you.ReplyDelete
Why the fixation on this, rather than politics?
What is it about alleged paedophilia that adds wind to the sails of writers and respondent on this blog?
Is that what you want to be celebrated for?
Surely this abomination is something that is beyond satire, and regardless of how much the overwhelming and crippling hatred this site and its adherents have for Sinn Fein, surely it's "time out" if the like of this is championed.
I believe you may rethink this in the days ahead.
as expected he has annoyed somebodyReplyDelete

RE Pete: ‘What is it about alleged paedophilia that adds wind to the sails of writers and respondent on this blog? Surely this abomination is something that is beyond satire… Disgusting.’
Ah now Pete Disgustingly accurate it is… LOSE the contrived, moral outrage number & face grim realities. You sound like a Bishop or pontificating, useless Pope. It is a very clever take… perhaps too real for you so lets focus on politics you say… Sweep the mire under the rug… Lets get political… NB Abuse of minors is a political issue duh! AND SO ARE LIES/COVERUPS.
RE Pete: ‘What is it about alleged paedophilia that adds wind to the sails of writers and respondent on this blog?’
Ever occur to you Pete some of us respondents may have suffered abuse at the hands of revered clergy and/or within the hallowed halls of Irish republicanism… RE alleged pedophilia - nah! proven clinically medically. You couldn’t make it up if you tried and you need to understand the courage and the personal depth of pain it takes for victims to speak out.
This blog is one of the most accurate reads out there into the dumbing down/cover-ups. Divert your wee text tantrum towards the real filth not the truth. I love the cartoonists take. Ruined the song for me forever ahaha but worth it SO worth it!
Thank the gods for Brian Mor. One the the most astute and gifted living artists. A breath of fresh air.ReplyDelete
I think the problem of those Brian annoys is that satire and caricature are so powerful. Because it verbally says so little but has a lot of artistic licence it carries a potent punch. Enormous ring craft is necessary to evade it. And humourless minds simply aren't up to the task. Look at how the religious mob would respond to the late George Carlin when he ridiculed them. Same here. Same everywhere. Same always. They prefer it to be suppressed. So the battle between the censor and the artist continues.ReplyDelete
nothing to do with that brill cartoon, but latest news is that locals are said to be in a state of shock after police found a stash of guns behind the libary in Twinbrook yesterday...A spokesman said "The people of Twinbrook had no idea they had a libaryReplyDelete
Thank God for Brian Mor, how else would we get a laugh in this God forsaken place?ReplyDelete
