With that unmistakable supply, mild and brusque on the identical time, repeating phrases for emphasis.

Once I take into consideration Homosexual Byrne, that’s what I principally really feel – gratitude. For the way in which he modified this nation on The Late Late Present, forcing us to look, to debate and to argue over issues we’d lengthy brushed below that gargantuan cliché of a nationwide carpet.
