Am I completely missing something or are this couple genuinely mounting a woe is me campaign in the media over the fact that they spent 8 grand on raffle tickets to win a 20 grand wedding and the company has folded ?

Nice to see John McCain making the effort to leave his multimillion dollar treatment in Mayo Clinic to take away healthcare from 28 million lolpoorpeople.

The DuPlantier doc was a good watch. It is undoubtedly the most fascinating legal case in my history. Baileys innocence likely shorter than 1.01 and it would be great if somehow the entire truth of the scenario came to light.

You think he's innocent?

Didn't catch the doc obv, but he's innocent? I'd assumed from the way it had been covered over the years that he was 100% guilty but they just couldn't prove it.

I had a brilliant convo with one of Irelands top defence lawyers about the case a few years back. He could contend nothing other than innocence for Bailey. So many things at play and I would do him a disservice now to try and recap them. Context being, murder in rural cork 20/25 years ago which to that point had only dealt with a broken tail light on a car. Agatha Christie mindset, cops wanting to solve it, committing to a narrative and once that is done never being able to reverse out of it i.e. if they reverse from their POV they are lieing and lose pension entitlements etc... Who did it, he had about 6 possibilities all very plausible. It was so fascinating that I thought it would be a great event for a Q&A in a theatre style setting.

Fair enough, my own experience from talking to people from the area is different but I would still have an open mind.

What price you laying on guilty

I thought the doc was shite but absolutely innocent. No DNA, no evidence. GTFO

Paging Kayroo for his brief synopsis on the Bailey case if he is at liberty to provide it?

I thought he came across as a thoroughly despicable human being. There is definitely no chance that he will ever be brought to court and found guilty but that doesn't mean he didn't do it. His partners defending of his violence towards her was very sad to watch.

I would have liked to see more explanation from the eye witness as to why she gave a false statement in the first place. It was on the radio today that RTÉ had possession of an internal Garda review that stated her evidence wasn't credible which predated her retraction by 3 years and his libel case against newspapers by a year.

It certainly seems a case of the Gardaí had decided he did it and would do anything to get him even going so far as to give witnesses lifts to the libel case. All very strange.

Gunpowder is little better than average, imo. It is typical of many new hip gins, I find it a little course and lacks the smoothness of the highest quality gins. I think they have done a fine job with their marketing. Of course I am not suggesting that it is a bad gin, just not as good as the hype would have you believe.

Yet another shameless brag, I don't know how many this now but it's a lot. (this also may just be normal for normal folk). Anyway I was contacted by one the best rugby clubs in germany the other day on a recommendation of someone I have never met nor ever spoken to. I don't know how or why I was recommended for the role but it after some back and forth conversations has turned into a role which pays about 3 times what I was on, has a shit tonne more expenses paid and from what I gather an open door into tier 2 national team work.

I really am the luckiest person around and I've no idea why

I was recently in the azores. I travel a lot and generally say if you like this or that you should visit here, but the azores is different, it should be the most important stop for everyone's next trip. Truly an incredible place. It has incredible beaches, coastlines, jungles, culture, cheapness and scenery. However i bought two bottles of gin at the airport. First one is a volcanic rock based gin. It's fucking awful, the ashy taste doesnt go well with anything. It's a struggle to choke down. it's not all bad though. they have a few local producers but all struggle to make anything of any quality, much like gunpowder, never been impressed by it.

They do have one gin company there called goshawk which is a local bird, they produce a tangerine flavoured gin which is to die for. incredible drink

Whats best route from Ireland to Azores? Separate flight to Portugal then onwards?

Fab meal this evening in Osteria Lucio before Brian Wilson concert, Quattro formaggio pizza and the Ragu were a little piece of Rome, washed down with a lush Nebbiolo

The value of the company post brexit was €5.5bn, now it's €7.5bn, ergo people have made about a 40% gain on their investment.
It sounds worth a pop at 20c a go, but 6 quid seems a bit steep.
