The scare tactics worked.

It should concern everybody that several organs of the state and most of the media simultaneously took to scaremongering around a religious event.

Such levels of collaboration will eventually affect all those who oppose the government.
This degree of paranoia is simultaneously both hilarious and terrifying.

Like, really? You think the government pulled all the stops out blocking off the Phoenix Park and large sections around it to traffic at tax payers' expense because they actually wanted to wreck the visit by overegging the pudding?

You think??

:rolleyes:

...and if you look on your left, children, you can just see one of the increasingly rare examples of the Lesser Spotted Paranoid Hypocrite disappearing into the undergrowth which is nowadays its natural habitat.

I have the same problem - this made me laugh out loud:

This alone justifies the need for a "like" button!

We're gonna have to write every time "This deserves a like", and clog up the server.

Best photo of the whole shindig was the one with Frankie the Hat in the foreground and streak of piss Brady lurking in the background.

Whoever thought it a good idea to invite Brady along must have been out of their minds. Mind you, the photo doesn't even count as a 'before and after' shot as they are all still at it.

That remark could be construed as incitement to religious hate. If you had written that about Muslims, how long would it be until you receive a visit from the police?
