A certain class of gentleman, let's say bolshy, entitled and possibly attend the church of Clarkson, specifically the ones who park their autos in the P&K. I've given up on confronting them as I'm genuinely afraid of what I'll do/say/set on fire (insert as applicable). More often than not met with the refrain of "in my day", m0th€rfunker as long as you're currently topside it's still your funking day, and you're part of this thing called society which like it or not often changes! Now then pull your trousers down to an acceptable height and cop the fup on, you look ridiculous.

And the reason I'm so worked up is I've an additional needs kid and the extra space of the P&K spots and the proximity to the shop because he's a flight risk is such a boon. Did I mention I hate them?!

When they moved on Mary Wilson I cheered. When I heard that they were bringing in Sarah McInerney, I cheered as she had seemed very competent in her short stint in succession to Sean O'Rourke. However, the current content and format has driven me to Newstalk from 5.00 pm onwards.

If I want social media content (I rarely do except on Babbling), I can find it. For early evening I want hard information and reasonable debate about the current issues of the day. Really bad decision by RTE and advertisers should be aware there are many like me - real-world consumers who vote by shifting the dial immediately.

Can we add people who park across two or more spaces to this?

Well if you have a big SUV then using 2 spaces is OK right? I don't want some Micra driving moron putting a dint in my new ride.
3 spaces is too much though, I agree.

Especially near the RDS on match day when I'm trying to find a spot to park in.

This is all fine if you use the magic triangle button that means you can do anything right?

Buy her some earphones. I'm sure you can get Harry Potter themed ones somewhere.

Absolutely, them and double yellowers too. I think curb mounters/path blockers need to be in there too. Driveway obstruction is another bugbear
