What a sad fuck Brian Boyd is

What a sad fuck Brian Boyd is. The kind of smart-arsed idiot who, when asked if he's from the north of Ireland or the south of Ireland, says he's from the East of Ireland. How witty! So he used to go to Labour Party meetings in London in the late '80s? Bit of a fledging Blairite, then? Maybe he should stick to bigging up U2. Like Bono, he sold out long ago - if he ever had anything to sell out of.

Donald Clarke on music? Mr. Boyd on politics? It's like the staff of an old secondary school: a degree in anything allows you to teach anything. The Irish Times must be on its last legs.
