Property Tax Protest Monday 4th Feb 2013 at the constituency clinic of Catherine Byrne FG TD - YouTube

Catherine Byrne a Fianna Gael TD in Dublin, today closed her office because members of the public unhappy with water charges (CAHWT) occupied her office and....shouted at her. She was close to tears and called the Guards (who Fianna gael are also trying to get to work extra hours for less money.

The demonstrators have posted a video of the occupation on YouTube – which shows an extremely distressed Ms Byrne calling gardai when they refused to leave.


Is this an acceptable style of protest or is it a case of whats good for the goose is good enough for the gander...or if you ca'nt stand the heat get the fick out of the kitchen. Amazing the first people she called were the guards in the 'local Garda station' which Shatter and co including ENDA 220'000kpa think is a fine idea to close.

Well they were in effect trespassing and refused to leave when asked. They are quite entitled to protest and should have done so on the public footpath outside the office.

You got it in one. How many of us have been in tears of despair at Catherine's partys collective austerity decisions.

What utter scum. Harrassing and abusing an older lady.

This is a good illustration of the kind of low-life knackers who inhabit these "protest" groups.

There's few issues that can't be solved by shouting at a 56 year old woman and her teenage daughter. Nice touch to ruin the days of the constituents who were waiting their turn to speak to the Td as well. Sher why should they enjoy democracy when they can just be shouted down?


That doesn't mean she can close down her office without offering an equally accessible alternative to her constituents. If these yobs show up again just press charges for trespass.

The game of politics is not for the fainthearted, she should not be in it if she can not handle a few protesters in her shop, has she not trespass on the lifes of the people she is taking money off.

It says a lot about these people's view of "democracy" when they think its acceptable to break up meetings of a democratically elected city council in Cork, trespass in the offices of democractically elected TDs, and throw paint in the face of a Government minister, as the blonde slapper from "eirigi" did a couple of years ago.

Whats Good For The Goose/Good For The Gander

Relating to the new family home tax- some of the newest threats- If we suspect you have undervalued your home for the family home tax, we will send out a revenue inspecter to inspect your privately owned/privately maintained home, if you refuse to let the revenue man inside your home we will threaten you with a penality, when the government treat ordinary working people with such utter complete contempt they shouldn,t be surprised nor complain when people start to push back against them.

Her being an old lady has sweet f*ck all to do with it. If they were trespassing, they they should be dealt with but you have an absolute right to protest against government TD's whether or not their gender and age should suggest otherwise.

The elected member from Éirigi?
I don't support that group whatsoever, but your hypocracy is shining through.
