HERE'S the threat. If Brian Cowen and Brian Lenihan don't immediately stop giving our money to Anglo Irish Bank, I'll -- well, I'll burn a whole load of copies of the holy Irish Constitution, so I will. Bunreacht na hEireann -- whoosh -- up in flames. I'm giving them two weeks to respond.
I mean, it worked for Pastor Terry Jones of Gainesville, Florida, right? One minute he's a powerless non-entity -- then he announces 'International Burn a Koran Day' and threatens to set fire to 200 copies of the Muslim holy book -- suddenly he's got the attention of five continents.
When it comes to powerless non-entities, there are few people on this earth as feeble and irrelevant as we, the citizens of this benighted Republic.
