LI'M looking forward to watching The Guarantee, released at the end of the month. The film is based on the night the Government issued a blanket €440bn guarantee to prop up the Irish banking system. The trailer was released this week. I wonder would there be much of a fuss if you downloaded it and watched it illegally? Seeing as we, the taxpayer, technically paid for the plot. We might also be able to skype the film to our kids who are now living in Canada and Australia.

I I see Beyonce fans are in a twist about her new fringe. It's high up on her face and no, her daughter Blue Ivy didn't have a go at doing it.

It's only a haircut and will grow out.

IIt's worth watching the audition tapes for the Irish entrants for The Apprentice. It's sort of like the X Factor. Confident people who actually haven't a note in their head but believe they are the next Susan Boyle. One wants to be a CRO.

Somehow, I don't think that's what she meant.
