    Default Plan B for Willie?

    The Irish flag only flies over Leinster House when Dail Eireann is in session. Unfortunately for Willie Frazer, the Dail is not currently in session, therefore Willie Frazer will be asking for the removal of a flag that's already down. Nice one Willie.

    We wouldn't want his journey to be a complete waste, so what other buildings can he protest around this neck of the woods?

    Well there's Dublin City Hall. Surely a more logical comparison with Belfast City Hall is Dublin City Hall? Unfortunately for Willie, the tricolour doesn't fly over Dublin's City Hall either. The flag I use as my avatar does. So scratch that.

    Then there's Dublin City Council, which has its headquarters in a big building overlooking Wood Quay. The tricolour does fly over it, but then again, a Union flag is currently fluttering in the wind at its main entrance too. D'oh!

    Poor Willie. Perhaps the Dail custodians might agree to raise the flag in order for him to demand that it's lowered again. Hands across the border and all that.

    I notice the Irish flag, albeit in a tatty state, flying in some Dublin housing states. I also recall the amount of tricolours thrown on the ground after the World cup. can the unionists disrespect the flag any more than ourselves?

    he was on the radio today and he will not be marching through the streets of Dublin. it will be a brief affair.

    How many "states" are there in Dublin.
    Do they have their own flegs?

    In fairness these Willie threads are getting a bit tiresome. Better to ignore the village idiot and focus on something with more substance. I certainly hope no one gives him any publicity when he's in Dublin making a tit of himself.

    You need to ask yourself sir..........are fascists capable of holding a peaceful protest.
