    Beats getting her head chopped off. Sleeping with dogs and fleas comes to mind...

    No, indeed.

    We need some channel to express our anger in a non abusive aggressive way.
    Any suggestions for constructive means of expressing it?

    Use your vote next 5 June to put them out.

    Engage in as many peaceful Demos as you can handle.

    Keep up the pressure to reform the whole way finance & politics 'work' in this State.

    According to the Sindo, a "friend" of Gillian Bowler, unamed, alleges that Gillian was verbally abused in a shopping centre. Not sure where the "shoved", ie assault, part was supposed to have happened. Notes how brave Gillian taught it no big deal as she is focused on ensuring the country recovers...!

    There follows a story about how the poor banks are coping.

    In other Sindo news - they have a go at the costs of the Mahon tribunal.

    Is there ever a time that these people will ever stand up to the powerful in this country.

    Pathetic.

    A woman in her 70s launched a venomous attack after identifying Ms Bowler as the bank chairwoman in the aisle of a shop.
