    I think it "matters" that we can laugh at an obvious photo-shopped pic for what it is without an atmosphere of hate and discrimination or reinforcing stereotypes, it does sound like everything you do or see leaves a strong mark on you, lighten up lad, otherwise you will be weighed down by outrage.

    As in you think someone hates the gay community because they posted that? I find that hard to believe.

    Maybe it's in the eye of the beholder but to me it's a tired homophobic stereotype. I agree that there may be a fine line buts it's not funny either so it's easy for me to say it's offensive

    I didn't find it funny
    And I suspect we have very different definitions of "sheltered"

    A decent sense of humour?

    Micheal Martin was an excellent minister in all the portfolios he held (many of his political foes will agree with that). He was the first minister internationally who introduced a smoking ban (possibly the single most important public health initiative to occur in Ireland in past 30 years) against the wishes of powerful lobbying groups and senior members of the then government McCreevy and Harney. He took over a party rightly decimated after overseeing the bankrupting of the country....the main players scarpered off with their pensions. He steadied the ship and supported bi partisan efforts to stabilise the country. He has now lead FF and FG to join forces for national stability a fact few would ever deemed possible and coming up to 100 year anniversary of our most divisive history of our country. He has faced down powerful voices in his own party. He has faults but I for one am happy that this arrangement will go forward. I didn't want a payrise in the midst of a global recession and pandemic. I didnt want €200 for ever citizen when there is no money to spare. I could go on listing the ridiculous populist recommendations from the party of 'change' but run out of space.
    I am reassured in the knowledge that the cabinet will be made up of some of brightest minds of the 3 parties and look forward to giving them a chance to govern in uncertain times.
    LOL. Get back to work meehole, never knew you were on here
