Anyone seen Burlesycunty?

Eurofacts from Pres. ZeePee Land Minstry of Truth:-

The Basques invented Tennis.
The Basques have the best cuisine in the Iberian Peninsula.
The Basques are cute.
There is two types of Basque:-
the Big strong mountain type and
the little skinny mountain type.

Great.

Now as soon as we all sort out Burleyscunt and his plans to divide Italy, thrash the constitution, drop the Presidency, and dance on Sophie's grave, and place a maleable Pontiff in the Vatican, kill Romani, and of course declare himself "Il Duce 2", all the little nations of our Great Sloppy Big Hugzy Wugzy it's not a superstate honestly but it's bigger than the Yankee empire, will have the opportunity to

walk the walk

Just went down to have a look at what was happening at Ellis Quay - photos attached - very quiet, lots of Gardai enjoying the sun (and the overtime) - glad to see the marchers undeterred by the scaremongering...

Hi,
Dublin's practically deserted, I've never seen it so quiet on a saturday. March is at the Bridge by Heuston station now, Don Baker and King Sativa are due to play, interspersed with speeches. Guards are clustered in fours, chilling out and chatting about the football. no hint of problems in the city centre.
March was peaceful, lots of "Fianna Fail are wankers" stuff, red/black banners and rainboww peace flags. Mostly its the usual suspects, there is as yet no visible contingent from overseas. Mind you they could be disguised as tourists in shades and t shirts, hand in hand on the streets or smoking pensively outside the door of the bars. Business is definitely down, maybe Dublin's gone to the beach. Some Mammies are bringing kids to the Cyprus welcome out in Bray, ice creams and tunes. Who knows? It's Mayday, It's Bealtine, the dawn of a glorious summer. As the teenagers chant: "hooray hooray the first of may, outdoor sex begins today!"
Rally due at GPO at 6 local time, organisers pissed off because of closure of parkgate street and lack of access to the park.

More later.

Eric

A couple of doors down from the GPO on O'Connell Street you will find Easons, a long established bookshop. Inside the front entrance they have a display of titles well known to anti globalisation activists - Naoim Klein, Michael Moore, Joseph Stiglitz. Looks like they're hoping for a bit of business from the hyped masses of protestors but all they've got are empty tills and smiling shop workers enjoying the easiest saturday a shop worker could possibly have.
