Moment of the Week
Phone pun fun
One of the regular rituals on Newstalk Breakfast ( weekdays) has co-anchors Kieran Cuddihy and Shane Coleman talking to Pat Kenny about upcoming items on his show. On Wednesday, this involves Kenny unintentionally playing the straight man to the breakfast show’s impish duo. Kenny flags one of his stories, on Boris Johnson refusing Donald Trump’s request that Britain not buy telecommunications equipment from Chinese company Huawei: “Boris has given him two fingers.” Cuddihy’s response is gleeful. “You know what Boris is doing? He’s meeting the Chinese half Huawei.” Cue groans. But it could have been worse. Chinese take-Huawei, anyone?
