Question: Why do our political class suddenly feel the need to start conversations about arming 17,500 Garda?
Follow up Question: Should the Irish Public consider legally arming themselves in response?
What’s good for the goose ought to be good for the gander right?
There is a curiosity in the timing of Varadkar’s latest folly. It comes hot on the heels of the East Wall non-Ukrainian refugee protests - railing against the insertion of hundreds of international asylum seekers into an unused ESB building in the locality. I consistently use the phrase non-Ukrainian due to the fact the media and political class constantly attempt to gloss over that particular fact and how they misled the public about international refugee policy for pushing on 10 months now. As an aside, the government have completely magic-ed away all planning regulations with regard to converting buildings, like the ESB one in East Wall, into accommodation facilities. A timely reminder of a major law of Irish political physics.
