    These days, it's Londonderry.

    But sometimes somewhat more sensitives use 'Derry/Londonderry'.

    True story.

    BBC would predominantly use Londonderry but it would vary from presenter to presenter, depending on their sense of humour.

    So I would project that both will eventually become interchangeable.

    But not without a kicking or two.

    I thought that, which was why I was surprised to see it as above.

    I haven't been in Ireland for a wee while but if memory serves the roadsigns used to vary twixt the two. Presumably to cater to both viewpoints.

    Try to catch Stephen Nolan between 9 and 10.30 on Radio Ulster.

    Jp, it's a fucking crucible of pain. More so than even this bored.

    It's Schadenfreude with a Belfast accent. Faster than the Leaning Tower Of Piza.

    If Ian had been ousted in all reality, I would have thought that he would have been the first one to klaxon the fact, being as he is a foghorn of a man.

    He is a foghorn of a foghorn of a foghorn.

    He was a hun and he got dunted (Belfarst burnacular).
