Which could well be found if you read between the lines of Jack O'Connor's quotes to the media, following the anti-austerity march in Dublin.
This is the word that makes O'Connor looks foolish, and potentially hypocritical. I have to wonder if he thinks that if you're a member of an establishment left group like SIPTU and the Labour party, that ultimately gives you a bigger right to take to the streets?O’Connor said that a number of protesters carrying Sinn Féin and United Left Alliance banners and posters tried to “besmirch” the demonstration, describing it as a “deeply sinister trend which has developed over the recent past and bears all the hall marks of fascism”.
People have be going to these marches with SF and Socialist banners for years. Why does he have a problem about it now?
