Photo of the Day
So yesterday I am sitting in the Gresham Hotel in Dublin having a pint after a rather contentions debate on the thorny issue of Israel and boycotts which I will post about at a later stage. So I am sitting in the lounge when all hell breaks lose. Jedward, yes the crazy Dublin twins who took the X Factor (or Britain's got talent or one of those disgusting shows that make me think Liam Egan sometimes has a point about liberal society) by storm enter the room and come straight in the direction of my table. One of the "stars" puts his bag on our table seconds before he gets mobbed by scores of screaming teenage girls. The chaos continues for a few minutes until security arrive to sheppard the lads to safety. Their fanatic followers then scarper down every corridor and stairwell in what I think was an attempt to find the guys bedroom. Security are then sent into a frantic search and destroy (well maybe just remove) mission to neutralise the threat. During the madness I managed to snap one picture for my Photo of the Day. I just hope Ted or John didn't think I was a fan.
