Harney didn't deserve that

Sir -- I am no admirer of the present Government and can't wait for the election to arrive so I can register my personal verdict.

But I wasn't impressed with the lady who doused Minister Harney with red paint, or with the reason given for the protest.

I didn't like the paint-smearing gimmick because it generated a profoundly negative image of Ireland: pictures of the painted minister holding a shovel have appeared in newspapers worldwide and on the internet.
