Richard 'Rich Boy' Boyd Barrett really should have known better when he appeared on a Late Late Show panel discussion last Friday night on the Queen's visit to Ireland.
While the rest of the country was enjoying the glow of the historic and successful visit, Boyband Barrett was having none of it.
He wasn't gushing in his praise for the English Monarch's visit - he is entitled to his opinion - but he did say he wouldn't have a problem of she wanted to come to Ireland 'on a private fishing trip'!!
Did he learn anything at all with his expensive private education? Did he not realise that Prince Philip's uncle, Louis Mountbatten, was murdered by the IRA during a private fishing visit to Ireland?
It was an own-goal by Boyband Barrett and his comment, as Ryan Tubridy said, was 'very unfortunate'.
