    Went to see it in the cinema last week. Pushes the banshees into second place of my favourite Irish movies.

    Not on any channels available here, but will be available on loads of places that I'm sure a tech savvy lad like yourself can get access to easily.

    Planning to double down on my bet on De Santis now it has widened again to around 2/1. Only for the Republican nominee. Think its far more complex to judge the actual winner.

    He should be resting up and enjoying old age. The Dems need to understand they can equally lose credibility . Surely there must be someone else.

    Who on the dem side would win if not him? I agree he is too old though, he's very doddery as it is, never mind after a long campaign vs Trump or RDS.

    I also fully accept that Trump is likely to torpedo his own chances vs almost anyone just by being Trump.

    I tried to edit but site was down as I mixed up the dates but he did it last night anyway.

    It is one of those records that nobody ever thought would be broken again so it’s amazing he has managed to achieve it.

    From here it is hard to imagine it is ever broken again given he intends to play for another 3-4 years, adding approx 4,000 more points.
