Cartoon – Spall and Meaney play “Chuckle Brothers”


Timothy Spall and Colm Meaney cartoon

Timothy Spall and Colm Meaney have been confirmed to play Ian Paisley and Martin McGuinness in the movie ‘The Journey’. The news takes us back to 2007 and that momentous event we remember fondly as the “Chuckle Brothers” moment.

Contrasting that hope with the toxic partisanship of today it’s probably better to do as they did and laugh it off rather than to cry.
