by | 15th, April 2012

AT the Labour Party conference at NUI Galway, protesters angered by austerity measures stormed Garda barricades. Pepper spray was deployed at no little cost. Someone took a pike along. Who?

Given the state of the Irish building industry, surely a cement bag and some bricks is the preferred method of enacting judicial revenge..?
