'Safe rooms' for drug addicts a shot in the arm for city centre

'Ó Ríordáin is the epitome of the modern liberal – in the sense that he seems to want to ban, criminalise, punish and fine anyone who expresses opinions that don’t fit into his particular world view'

If I'm being perfectly honest, Aodhán Ó Ríordáin would not be my favourite politician.

He is, after all, the man who first came to national prominence when he sent his secretary to the gardaí to report the then Mayor of Naas, Darren Scully, for inciting racial hatred.

The fact that he was forced to refile his complaint - apparently, dispatching your PA with a letter to the The Man is not an appropriate way to file a legal objection - only served to make the Labour politician look both incompetent as well as cynical.
