The bookies always win

Ivan Yates got another golden ten minutes on Today with Pat Kenny (Wed).

Yesterday’s charity betting brought in a grand total of €225. Pat hasn’t yet revealed what charity is to receive the huge sum and this is very wise on his part as there is bound to be vicious competition for such a vast amount of money.

I have no idea what the going rate is for commercial advertising on such a high profile show as Pat’s but it must be at least a few thousand per minute, but let’s be conservative and say €1,000 per minute.

So, to date, the score is €20,000 for Ivan – €225 to charity. Those feck’in bookies you just can’t be up to them.
