    Can anyone recommend a decent restaurant in and around Harcourt/Stephens Green area for 15-20 people. Have some colleagues coming over from the US, budget of around €50 per head.

    I've brought corporates to Peploes on Stephens Green a few times and it always goes down well, really nice place inside. It will be all of your €50 though but they probably offer a set menu for a group at less than that.

    I'd get a heart attack if I climbed it and saw that queue. The bigger queue, the longer you have to wait, the more tired you get, the more likely you'll fall. Apparently that is also melting and dislodging the snow and rocks, which is causing some of the fatalities.

    In fact I'd get a heart attack to climb it anyway :D

    It is an amazing photograph, it truly is but it's heartbreaking what it represents! 4 or 5 deaths in a few days to try and reach the summit. I know people need to keep reaching for the top but families are being left behind for this pursuit.

    Contact the paper themselves and they can send you out a copy. Have seen it done before.

    Saw a tweet last night from a black Lib Dem councillor in London. She put up the picture of a man racially abusing her on the train,4 witnesses have confirmed her story. Somebody recognised the logo on his T-Shirt from the golf club he's a member of,went on the club website and found his picture with his name attached,and then Linkedin to get his professional details. He's an engineer employed by Virgin Media who are now being bombarded with messages about their employees behaviour. The internet can really kick you in the bollocks.

    A lad was mistakenly identified as one of Anna Kriegels murderers online and suffered an incredible amount of abuse and harassment for no reason at all. People need to be very careful what bandwagons they jump on. Hopefully this is a case of correct identity.

    Hopefully those sharing the image are liable for prosecution.

    Wouldn't disagree with any of that but this looks legit and that guy is fucked. Whether that's right or wrong I'll leave it for other people to decide.

    Let's go on the assumption that what the lady on the train claims is true. If that's the case then the internet didn't kick him in the bollox, his drunken racist outburst did. He's gone viral not because a phone was put in front of him but because of his own actions.There is a lot of cons to the world wide web. A lot. Using it as a tool for calling out cnuts for being cnuts however can be classed as a pro. Again going on the assumption she was indeed racially abused.

    My point is that if it wasn't for the internet he'd probably have gotten away with it.
