I had the misfortune to switch on the TV this evening at the very, absolute, completely wrong time. It was just as Tubridy and Chris de-fucking-Burgh were sucking each other’s cocks on public national television, paid for by you and me.

What a pair of wankers, massaging each other’s egos at your expense, while the rentacrowd bunch of gobshites in the studio clapped along to a pathetic version of American Pie.  American Pie was a passably decent song in its time, about 1972, but really not that cutting-edge forty years later.  Wouldn’t you think RTE might have moved on?

What??? Are you fucking mad? RTE move on?   And change a losing formula?

If ever there was an example of something that encapsulates the failure that is RTE, it has to be Tubridy’s little vignette with sad boring old Chris tonight.

How pathetic.

Do you know what I find most depressing about them?  It isn’t that we pay for them.  It isn’t that they hire their neighbours’ stupid Billy Barry children to act in their TV dramas and to do voiceovers on their radio advertisements, in the delusion that our children also talk like that.

It’s the fact that they think we respect them.  We, the majority of Irish people, who pay their wages.

What a pathetic crowd of incompetent, talentless fucks.

The days are gone when the majority of people in Ireland – those who don’t live in South Dublin –  are impressed by this pretentious bunch of arseholes that we pay for.  Let’s get rid of this bunch of mediocre gobshites.

    Bock, what’s with the fence sitting? You’re usually one to tell it like it is, but in this instance, I can’t figure out if your pro RTE/De Burgh, or anti.

  2.  

    You’re dead right. Why don’t I say what I really think?

  3.  

    What you think! BOCK. – Bear in mind that in Dublin South they never did give a
    F.
    U.
    C.
    K.
    about the common or garden tossers they believed were you; et all and sundry others – outside of the Pale, etc…

    Can I just say, here here! Boring, I know, but I agree, thats all.

    I worked in South Dublin for 6 months about ten years ago…………they’re alright apart from the very high opinion they have about themselves.I often wonder if this is genetic. It’s the same with almost every D reg car I see on the road………they have to be on front no matter what; what the fuck is all that about.

  6.  

    Why don’t you do a podcast bock i’m sure you’d pull in a few downloads or even live viewers or are you like myself a face for radio only?

  7.  

    You’d never know where I might pop up.

    Just goes to show what a talentless bunch of politically correct gobshites RTE have working for them if this Kenneth Williams lookalike is the best they have to offer, Tubridy you self promoting spineless politically correct WANKER give someone with a bit of balance the airwaves

    Kenneth williams i was thinking more along the lines of the illegitimate love child of guy smiley and henry kelly.

    Ryan Tubridy – Dublin born and bred and I agree he is first class tit.
    Pat Kenny, Gerry Ryan, Gay Byrne (for the most part) – North Dublin.

    So who exactly is this “South Dublin” persona that is attracting the bile of some posters here.

    I find it interesting the denigration of one part of the country when on another topic there is a promotion that Limerick is not all bad. I agree it is not by the way, just commenting on double standards of whitewashing a whole area just because of the influence of a few scumbags.

    Tribalism is tribalism no matter the context in which it is couched.

  11.  

    Like a lot of other state/semi state bodies, RTE is run for the benefit of everyone bar the customer (just look at the HSE). Tubridy is just a promo vehicle for other lame RTE “stars”/dalkey set friends of the movers and shakers. Luckily I managed to miss this gem, and the repeat of it which was on last night. I used to be able to go to the pub to avoid this shite, but now thats f*cked. So thank you Sky Plus. Rant over.

  12.  

    GOM — It isn’t a denigration of one part of the country. It’s the identification of a privileged clique who work for a State-funded organisation which is supposed to serve the entire country but instead has its gaze firmly fixed on South Dublin.

    I often find myself in the car at 9am and am driven (har har) to distraction with the fare offered by RTE. So it’s usually Lyric or my own stuff that I listen to … This morning when I heard Dave Fanning was on instead of that glib pompous wanker that is Tubridy I actually let out a sigh of relief … that’s how bad I think he is .. As for Mr fucking Creosote on Radio 2, don’t get me started …

  14.  

    Yes, RTE certainly have a habit of throwing money at absolute wank that seems like pish to anyone not living in the cosiest corners of the pale.

    Dan & Becks (or however you spell it), Upwardly Mobile and other such ‘gems’ being lauded until they can no longer get away with telling us it’s great, when in fact it’s a barrel of wank.

    I’m sprised The Hardy Bucks won the heat of RTE’s ‘Storyland’ (http://www.rte.ie/storyland/), I was sure it would have been pipped to the post by the likes of ‘Fíachra’s Dad bought him a coke habit’.

    Rant over also, for now.

    As John had no fighting to do, he employed himself more usefully in making arrangements for the better government of the country. Those parts of Ireland which were under English jurisdiction he parcelled out into twelve shires or counties: namely, Dublin, Kildare, Meath, Uriel (or Louth), Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford, Waterford, Cork, Kerry, LIMERICK and Tipperary. He directed that in all these counties the English laws should be administered. But it must be always borne in mind that these arrangements, including the administration of the law, were for the settlers only, not for the natives, who were then and long afterwards outside the pale of the law.

    Amusing Limerick was within the Pale.

    Gary I think you will find that the pale in this case refers to the settlers and those outside the pale are the natives. Geography has nothing to do with it in this case.

    Bock
    The same shit sucking wankers that voted the latest cabal into government are the target audience and I will tell you they love this shit.

    This is one country where the revolution will certainly not be televised!

  17.  

    God put Tubbs and Low-slung Monobrowâ„¢ in a room at the same time and you lot fucking missed? I am disappointed. I will not try to hide it.

    However, you DID make me pull up Castles in the Air, which is still a belter because it hasn’t had the fuck pilloried out of it by every Madonna and pub balladeer with a geetar over the last 35 years, so that redeems this pathetic missed opportunity somewhat. Note the somewhat. Epic chance gone a’begging.

    Bock, OK I’ll accept that. I live in South Dublin and am of an age that I believe (hitting 40) has no time for the crap that is broadcast on RTÉ, in particular programmes of their own making. It may be therefore that there are people of an age, and lack of mobility (they can’t get away) that is a more relevant cohort!

    I am looking at the pile of shite that is Q&A and thanking that it ends in June, but is to be replaced, I believe, by another politics programme headed by Pat the Plank, so politics is obviously not a strength of RTÉ, internally, it seems. I think Miriam O’Babymaker is to get the LLS, so the shite will continue, but then when you look at the lack of depth in talent, it is probably no wonder.

    @Rob, yes, shit sucking wankers, I’d definitely agree and the last election shows Dublin South not to have an overwhelming love of FF.

  19.  

    How will we understand Miriam’s bizarre accent?

  20.  

    I saw this programme for about 2 minutes on saturday and on sunday they repeat this shite,talk about taking the piss.

  21.  

    Bono, Gerry, the wanker, Ryan, Tubridy, and De Burger. So many people to hate and life being so brutally short.

    Below, natural born enemies are, yesterday, overcome with grief after catching a few seconds of a Chris De Burgh song from a passing car as played on Tubridy show.

    I just had the misfortune to see that , my God that was scary

  23.  

    You dublin people are really lovely. Really. I must say. Must be great feeling like you’re the centre of the universe here in Ireland. Tossers.

  24.  

    Grr I’m so angry I hate everything grr I’ll make a website about it and let everyone know what a pathetic begrudging little bitter sack I am grr

  25.  

    What a great idea. It’ll give you something different to do with your hands.

  26.  

    Although Tubridy is a right flange on the telly and radio – unlike most of the RTE cunts – he is supposed to a nice chap in real life. The less said about that Twat de Burgh the better. But am I the only one who thinks his daughter looks like a Tranny?

  27.  

    I agree with what you think of rte,tubridy etc, but your opinion on ‘all south dubs’ is way over the top, sure there are lots of pricks but they are everywhere, I hang around with loads of people from south Dublin who are absolutley 100% and are nothing like the twats on tv or born with a silver spoon rooted up their holes. Please be the bigger person going forward and take everybody on there on merits or your just like them who probably think everybody outside of Dublin fancies their aunties. Ps fuck tubs I’m not payin my tv licence to listen to the prick any longer.

    Is this Deja Vu? Didn’t I see that Gobshite Da Burger on Turberly a few weeks ago – by accident I assure you. Chris is still a gobshite, he hasn’t had a lobotomy since ’09 anyways He was saying how all the Croatians or Marsians or somewhere love him and his 500 euro bottles of wine in his cellar. Gobshite.
    I came across this earlier:
    http://www.independent.ie/entertainment/tv-radio/tubridy-ends-sour-week-on-a-sweet-note-2436734.html

    The gobshite Turberty is going to sing tonight .. just to cheer up the nation. Ahhh ex-fucking-cuse me..
    Are they having a laugh?
    They really want to send depressed people over the edge I think. – Cheer people up.. I don’t think so.
    RTE – Sadistic and cruel bunch. This was confirmed for me after they had Crystal meth on, with their hit ‘she talks dirty, he drinks tequila in Spanish’.. or something.

    The article heading.. “tubridy-ends-sour-week-on-a-sweet-note”.. Ah the poor crater musta had a bad week..

    They had the minister for social rape and pillaging , Eamon O’Cuiv on Prime time last night, going on about how great the minimum wage cut is and that it’ll create jobs. He wasn’t quizzed too much on this logic, at all. I had to leave, couldn’t watch it.
    And Mariam O’Callaghan fucking loves herself.. She could have done a better job than batting her eyes lashes at Comical Lenny..
    RTE : Useless shower of Cunts.
