Scissorhead Baron vonBeavis alerted us the other day to a story about a hero:

A MAN has been arrested after he reversed a van through the gates of the Russian embassy this afternoon.

No injuries were reported following the incident which occurred at approximately 1.30pm, however a Garda spokesperson confirmed that an investigation into an incident of “criminal damage” has been launched.

“One male was arrested and taken to Rathfarnham Garda Station where he is currently detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984,” they said. “Investigations are ongoing.”


“I want the Ambassador and his colleagues to leave this country, leave this free country,” he said. “It’s about time we stood up.”

“I’ve done my bit lads,” he said as he was led away by gardaí. “It’s about time the rest of Ireland done their bit.”


Well said, Mr. Unnamed Hero! We salute you!

And Scissorhead Skinny-D has the official reaction from the embassy:

…which takes a lot of nerve to accuse anyone else of senseless and barbaric action.

The Ruskies are very lucky, because it could have been wooden-spoon wielding Irish Grannies crashing the gates, and let me tell you this for certain: there would be no survivors. Only guessing of course.

  1. ‘Twas just last month that the mighty warships fishing boats of Irish Navy Fishing Association drove the Russian Navy from their territorial waters.

    Fuck around with the Irish and you’ll find out.

    (And related to resistance to the Russians, I had to fill up the Desertrat Family VW today and diesel was $5.19 a gallon. Fecking amazing that diesel that was refined months ago, delivered in the last few weeks or so, suddenly cost so much more just sitting there in the ground here under the gas station!

    Those Russkies are tricksy sorts all right! )

    I do not recognize St. Patrick’s Day as a celebration, but as a day to mourn the introduction of the scourge of Christianity to Ireland, the negative effects of which still have their traces left. If I drink on 17 March, it’s not to celebrate, but to mourn the introduction of a repressive religion to the land of my maternal grandmother’s ancestors.

    I see they quote the Vienna Convention in their pissy letter but not the Geneva Convention. Odd that.
