    Hmmm. Don't worry about it. Middle Ireland can see what is going on.

    Or if it can I doubt it minds much.

    I am sure another car could be arranged for Joan. Smuggle her out and let the protestors guard the other car for as long as they like.
    She eventually got out of the car and walked to another in the end, as far as I can tell.

    You mean she actually had to walk from one car to another?

    No one carried her?

    There's a whiff of revolution in the air.

    This is a taste of the Trotskyist utopia no doubt!
    Paul Murphy, having been elected to represent the people might consider adopting a leadership role rather than that of an apologist but is suppose that is too much to expect.
    I can only assume that this mob enjoy the self indulgence of discrediting their argument with their actions.
    From what I have seen on Facebook it was a peaceful Protest . Well done to the Protesters for their excellent behavior despite the provocation from the Cops !

    Irish water thugs assaulted a man on his own driveway while trespassing on his property in Dundalk this week. Will the OP start a thread about that and ask "is this ok??"

    Doubt it somehow.
    A few weeks before my grandfather died, he started dipping his feet in a bucket of lard.
    He went downhill very fast after that.

    You Irish dude?

    Because, if you are, I'd suggest you read a biography of Michael Davitt before you go chucking words like "new " around.

    The last time I checked this type of behaviour was illegal and unacceptable or have I missed something?
    10,000 factory workers were locked out by a farmers blockade.

    It cost the meat factories €30 million.

    That was illegal but AGS dis nothing. The peope here who whinge about the actions of water charge protesters were silent about the farmers.

    Joan is a big girl and is used to horse play.

    She has pushed people too far. Its time for her to defend the interests of ordinary peopl.
    In 1908, in London, at the Olympics, Irish American Martin Sheridan announced “This flag dips for no earthly king," when the US team paraded past the royal box.

    When this hapens the driver of the car should keep going, they wont be long getting out of the way. Do the Gaurds have a mounted horse unit, if they do they should be deployed in these situations, if they come up against these horses they wont be long getting out of the cars way

    I'm sure Silvio will be here shortly to protest what the "Trots" did to his latest new party's leader. The Social Democrats musrt be "fairly bristling" at how their leader was treated.
