Today the state broadcasting agency in coordination with a number of commercial news providers reported ad nauseum about how the new plant boxes on Henry Street are different and perhaps lower quality than those on Grafton Street. The media then created a cliché northside-southside row with a vox-pop and no doubt Joe Duffy's phone is hopping.

They then casually mention that the plant boxes, which are a real nuisance for the flow of pedestrians through very busy areas, are there for 'enhanced pedestrian safety'. So let's just engage in a silly northside-southside row and completely gloss over the fact that we are now installing hardware to protect us from fundamental Islamic terror. Personally I'm not afraid of the threat of terror. I am afraid of a society that just ignores the threat and covers discussion of that threat with childish, silly, manufactured 'rows'.

You have to hand to DCC for pretending that there is not problem with ISIS here.

Khalid Kelly, anybody ?

You and your discussion thing.

We don't do discussion in Ireland.

That said I suspect that the flower boxes have already had more discussion than is warranted.

Sectarian plant boxes?

I never imagined plant boxes were aware never mind them discussing theology.

This is earth shattering, talking plants, in Dublin?

For the silly title alone, this thread should be installed permanently somewhere in the space between the reptile house and the monkey enclosure.
It will be interesting to see if the mods actually change the the title or send the thread to zoo (or that Merc the virtue signaller in chief will dishonestly troll it and probably compare black people to plants or boxes or some other dodgy comparator).

Rumor has it one of them was a plant. Internal security is trying to root it out but he won't sta-men say. He will probably leaf the country!

Cough!

You can discuss the plant boxes. You just can't discuss their real purpose.

I read the title and thought the plant boxes (female, obvs) were immodest and not escorted by retractable billiards (male, obvs...)

So do I. Presume that is rust, not copper , or we'll have Pavee Point on the case...
Although you might be forgiven for thinking they're copper as they come at a hefty price tag - 50,000 euros for some planters? How many of them are there?
