these cartoons are great. i dont think the shinners are traitors as much as liars, decievers and downright oportunists...oh aye thats right they're constitutional self serving careerists aren't they lolReplyDelete
LMAO, Oh Brian youd better stay out of Kelly,s cellars, that juice is gonna go down a bomb in Thatcher house,Anytown rd, talking about traitors, big Bob doh brains and Gerry itwasntme had a wee Buster Keaton upstairs in Thatcher house,Bob doh brains said to Gerry itwasntme, "I,ve been organising things in the mainland in case things go wrong here boss, you know we have,nt really gone away ,Good man said Gerry itwasntme, "What have you been doing"? "Well says Bob doh brains I,ve been sending over semtex in tins of alphabet spaghetti," Jaysusss cried Gerry itwasntme,"if one of them goes of it could spell disaster"ReplyDelete
Hi Anthony thats a crackin pic, here,s one for Brian to draw , Knorr have released a special edition Green OXO cube in honor of psf , its called THE LAUGHING STOCKReplyDelete
Absolutely brilliant,so very, very funny. Larry I think if you look up the definition of traitor, then they tick all the boxes.ReplyDelete
Speaking of ticking boxes (with a pen of course) does anyone know where we can all hide for the duration of May. Is anyone else cracking under the strain.
a person who betrays another, a cause, or any trust.ReplyDelete
2.a person who commits treason by betraying his or her country.
Use traitor in a Sentence
That's the definition I got...seems true enough. When you look at the numbers in support of them and blind to what they are it's depressing. If their war was over they should have let the SDLP get on with things instead of shaming the entire history of Irish Revolutionary struggle.
Hi Nuala,i kinda look foward to these next few days, the psf wont knock my door , but if they do I,ll be playing Paddy Nash singing people before profit, and if I engage one of the amadans,I shall pose a simple question,i.e. where does the party stand on the conviction of those involved in the abduction and assult of Bobby Tohill.and can I order a case of tratorade, it might help shift the shit I,ve had to put up with since cira 1986.ReplyDelete
Marty, feel nearly phobic when I see them (the shinners). Always had a cochroach phobia and I kind of try and avoid the roaches, in the hope that they will return the gesture.ReplyDelete
So the thoughts of these people scurrying down my street looking votes or whatever else, does fill me with a kind of dread.
P.S Albert says the toyboys a Yank and that Marie introduced them ????
I'm hoping to see a net loss in sinner seats, not taig seats, just to see how sf deal with a setback north as well as south. They crawled all over 800 yrs of history to do what they're at..fingers X'dReplyDelete
Good job Brian, as usual.ReplyDelete
Thought this might amuse. From BBC election blog 28 April:ReplyDelete
"1310: Reporters at Sinn Fein's manifesto launch in Belfast have been given a free computer memory stick, says BBC Ireland correspondent Mark Simpson. It contains the party's united Ireland manifesto, and is branded with the Sinn Fein logo plus a sticker which says 1GB. Aides quickly emphasised that the GB stands for gigabyte and not Great Britain. " A Freudian slip? Perhaps "1GB" could be the new Shinner slogan!!
