After the Lisbon referendum last year I started to notice that whenever some whackjob had a letter consisting of anti-'establishment', pseudo-patriotic nonsense published in the national press, said whackjob invariably gave their name as gaeilge.

Well today's Irish Times has a letter from a COILÍN ÓhAISEADHA of Bóthar Inse Chór, Cill Mhaighneann, Baile Átha Cliath 8 (that's Kilmainham in Dublin 8, in case you didn't twig) full of conspiracy theory into the Corrib Gas project...

"It may be bizarre to speculate that a group of masked Shell sympathisers might have taken a digger to tear the fence down, but no more bizarre than the findings of the Morris tribunal that members of the Garda Síochána in Donegal planted a hoax bomb..." etc...

This straw man rubbish in response to an article in Monday's paper, which quite reasonably asks what really happened Rossport loon Willie Corduff who, it was claimed, 'was kicked and hit “with large batons” and “forcibly removed by the masked Shell security into an adjacent field where he was then knocked to the ground, kicked and beaten”. Corduff said: “I thought they were trying to kill me. They beat me until I stopped moving. I heard one of them say, ‘Stop now lads, he’s nearly finished’.”

Of course they did, that's why no one has seen any injuries... Jesus wept.
