Cement Gate

I have tried to think of something to say about this mornings #cementgate incident with a truck being driven into the gates of Leinster House. All I can say it looks like a stupid protest about the stupid policies of a stupid government. All it did was produce some publicity for a topic that already dominates the media. Everyone is talking about a cement truck while in the background another truck load of cash will be delivered to Anglo Irish Bank tomorrow when the government injects yet another €5 Billion into the doomed institution.

Members of the Oireachtas will probably demand Kildare St be closed off to traffic to protect Leinster House and the constuction of a civil service underground tunnel from the Department of Agriculture to Leinster House will now be called a safety measure. Other than that it'll achieve nothing other than lots of chatter and a 1 minute slot on Reeling in the Years 2010.
