Anakana Schofield – Award Winning Author of Bina, Martin John and Malarky

So here’s something curious a Timeline of Events in today’s student protest in Dublin, from The Irish Times which protestors “clashed” with Gardai.

Note the Sherlock Holmes tone in the list. The …we must uncover the menace who are not officially angry about student fees but have somehow infiltrated and hijacked the protest. It’s an interesting literary technique that attempts to play down the matter that any anger is legitimate about anything. A coralling effect. Get in the correct line, with the correct line. I am surprised they do not suggest the protestors were corrupted by watching French telly channels.

I’d also point out the man who drove his cement mixer into the gates of Dail Eireann recently.  Good thing he did it on his own, else they’d be insisting the SWP and the anarchists forced him into it over his teapot.
