A man has been arrested after a cement mixer truck crashed through the gates of Leinster House. It happened at 7am this morning.

The cement truck had "Toxic bank" written across the side. The man is believed to be in his early 40s and was taken to Pearse St Garda Station.

The truck in question was spotted back in April (discussion on it then here).

wasn't it part of the European day of protest (at the austerity measures)? If so, fair-play to the guy.

The first connection between the 455,000 living in the real world and the 166 living in Alice in Wonderland?

Hopefully the man arrested was either Cowen, Lenihan, or Aherne?

He's more than likely the same individual whom parked his truck outside the Anglo Irish Bank branch in Galway and caused traffic chaos.

There is no point in putting the lives of security staff at the gate at risk. We will have an opportunity to kick out our representatives in free elections so violence is not justified.
