The Minister for Blasphemy has continued his crusade to return the country to the 1950s by appointing someone similarly authoritarian as the film censor.
Ger Conolloy (who previously worked in marketing - an industry hardly renowned for its positive influence on society) has banned you from watching the re-release of some obscure 1970s torture porn film called I Spit on Your Grave.

That we even have a film censor's office in the 21st century is a bad enough joke, but when this nice little earner for accountants, ex county councillors, and friends of Fianna Fáil ministers (censors earn over €70k) moves from the arena of helping to guide parents to banning art, it becomes time to take action.
I for one will now be watching I Spit on Your Grave. I don't want to watch it (it sounds genuinely awful), but when the government forbids me, as an adult, from watching a film, the only patriotic thing to do is to watch that film.
