CURRENT Tánaiste Micheál Martin is confident the bullets will whistle past the ears of the young men who interrupted him at the recent forum on Ireland’s international security policy in a matter of years, adding that the interruption has only made him more determined to join to NATO. than ever before.
« Yell and interrupt, ha, let’s see how you like to freeze your nuts on the front lines of a war with a country you’ve never heard of! » Martin raged, as the fabricated debate over Ireland’s neutrality heated up.

After the shit show in Cork, I’m in full steam! I hope you little bollix like short haircuts and skimpy portions!
