The usual gang of eccentric leftists tried to ruin things for everybody yesterday when they attempted to storm the Dail after a legitimate and dignified march in protest at the cutbacks and government handling of the economy. The socialist Workers Party led the way in the attack on the Irish parliament in a weird and vain attempt at "playing the Bolshevik" 1917 style. Sorry lads but this is Dublin, not St Petersburg. The funny thing was they had the cheek to claim Garda brutality when seven or eight unarmed Gardai prevented them entering Leinster house. Of course the Gardai drew their batons. What the hell else would they do when 50 yobs try to storm the parliament. The SWP used the familiar tactic of provoking the Gardai while having cameras at the ready to film their reaction in the hope of cathcing a Garda in the act of lashing out. It was a total propaganda failure for the SWP. Champion of the left Vincent Brown was on the scene and defended the Gardai on his TV programme last night. On this occasion, the SWP failed in their attempt at framing the Gardai of brutality. The video footage below makes it clear who the aggressors were.
