Thank you and as I just wrote to another commenter, even as an Irish person, the fact that I was only 13 when the GFA came into effect and I’m from the Republic not the North, I still feel on the outside somewhat. Don’t get me wrong, the Troubles were something I was aware of (more than aware of - it was just the Read more

It was actually your post that reminded me Lyra McKee is not the first death that can be attributed to Brexit - thank you for the reminder, my only regret is I’d forgotten. Read more

I really wish there was a peaceful resolution but there was (GFA) and it’s been absolutely shat on. Mostly I’m furious about Brexit. David Cameron’s hubris, the racist Xenophobic UKIPers, the lies peddled and believed, and the absolute ignorance of the North and its borders. Northern Ireland is part of the United

I don’t comment around here much any more - for many reasons - but honestly I find your comment galling and couldn’t fight the urge to reply. Though for the record, I’m not interested in comment section spats so that’s not what this is. Read more

It was! Olenna masterminded it via Little Finger. I guess Olenna is technically his Grandmother-in-Law so......?

No problem - I appreciate that she’s not a perfect feminist. I’m learning all the time and I know there have been issues I was ignorant about in the past that I’ve since become more educated about and changed my views accordingly. Sounds like she might be doing the same.

Taken no steps to remedy” is just factually incorrect though. She’s very honest about past ignorance and educating herself.

Ha, I actually never thought of doing it that way - it’s more work than just hovering a cursor on a browser! Wah!

I see we’re back to that thing of including vague descriptions so that we have to click through to know what is being referred to...

It was! But I can’t figure out if what’s on her wrist is a Fitbit? Girl is committed to her step count.

For anyone buying a discounted Kitchenaid just check what your warranty is. Often they are refurbished models or previously used (for cooking demos, photo shoots etc). A great way to pick up a Kitchenaid that are otherwise out of price range but it may mean your warranty is one year not five. Just something to bear in Read more

Yeah that’s how I tried to rationalise that scene too. But this “woke AF” teen show chose to fight homophobia with more homophobia because that is going to break the chain? I don’t buy that. It’s just that there is so many mixed messages in this show. There are several LGBTQ+ characters but then we have that scene. Read more

You watched the first episode only and wrote a review right? That’s totally fine. It’s just out and who is gonna watch all 10 before a quick review? But...the above is not accurate? Read more

That is a very fair point re Sacco and I don’t blame you. If it helps, you could just skip her chapter (IIRC that’s how the book is organised so she’s avoidable). Sacco is a fairly small part of the book as I remember it.
