Quick! Look Behind You! It's the Bogey Man!
Having run out of scare stories about those pesky locals opposed to the government's excellent plan to get Shell to take all that dangerous natural gas from Irish waters, now the Irish Independent has found that ANARCHISTS are coming from EASTERN EUROPE to murder and destroy the (completely safe) Corrib Pipeline!

(hoped by who?)Gardai are preparing for trouble as work begins on shore exploration work in preparation for the coming ashore of the pipeline. Despite massive delays caused by protesters, and repeated inquiries by An Bord Pleanala, it is hoped that the project is now in its final stages. Gas from Corrib will supply up to 60 per cent of Ireland's gas needs.
(how?)The arrival of anarchists to fight the building of the pipeline and refinery in Mayo is yet another strange development in what appears to be a series of throwbacks to the Cold War era.
(encrypted messages???)The anarchists are suspected of using encrypted messaging on the internet to organise trouble at the protests. The group the Pole is believed to be a prominent member of terms itself the Anarchist Black Cross.
BUT THAT"S NOT ALL!
Even worse than the ANARCHIST BLACK CROSS TROUBLE MAKING IMMIGRANT KILLERS ?
Supporters of the Shell project in Mayo are angry at its targeting by international Left protesters but are angrier at the repeated delays forced by An Bord Pleanala inquiries.
