Millicent wore a surrealist comb

(made of bits of mosaic from St. Peter's in Rome)

Watching coverage of the protests outside Leinster House on yesterday evening's Six One news, I spied a placard towards the rear of the crowd saying

No to biscuits

"Good to see the surrealists protesting" I thought.

During the 9 o'clock news I realised my mistake.

No to bus cuts

You couldn't ban biscuits, there'd be outrage. In what other country did they choose the biscuit factory as a strategic point for their uprising?

I have no thoughts on bus cuts though.

Of course, if the protestor was calling for a ban on hobnobs at cabinet mettings, that would be a perfectly reasonable demand.

The goverment need to lead by example, and with Cowen and Harney around the table, that particular tab would run to tens of thousands.

It was extremely interesting for me to read that post. Thanx for it. I like such themes and everything connected to them. I would like to read more on that blog soon.
