Joan Burton on RTE Radio One at the moment complaining that the Jobstown defendants had legal representation. You couldn't make it up.

In other news all charges against all defendants have been withdrawn.

Im sure you will agree that the story here is garda ineptitude and a mistake by the DPP in the charges they chose to bring against Murphy and his pals.

Im sure you will also agree that the actions of the protestors on the day were disgraceful.

No, the story here is that Joan Burton is a washed up fool who thinks that defendants in trials shouldn't have legal representation. Try to keep up.

your sympathy towards her for the treatment she was subjected to is illuminating.

I have no sympathy for her whatsoever. None. The evidence presented in the trial clearly showed the Gardaí in control of the situation and that the car could have been reversed out at any time. Protests are ugly and Joan Burton has been involved in enough of them over the years to know that.

Trial is over. All innocent.

It seems to me from the footage that at all times the Gardaí were in control of the protest and therefore a claim of false imprisonment can't be supported.

innocent of the charges filed perhaps, and it seems the gardai werent in control of the situation.

not having sympathy for Joan as i said is illuminating, from the times:

Garda handling of the water charge protest at Jobstown was inept. At the same time, former tánaiste Joan Burton and her assistant were treated abominably: threatened, abused and spat at by some within an angry crowd and prevented from leaving. Garda reinforcements had such little effect in securing her freedom that an internal review of organisational practices, policies and other issues was ordered.

The actions of Paul Murphy & co was nothing short of thuggery. But hey let's deflect attention away from this uncomfortable truth.

Thats not what she said and you know that if you were listening.

She said she counted 3 solicitors per defendant which she though excessive seeing as all were on legal aid. And she pointed out that on the continent in cases like this where a group of defendants are tried together, 1 legal team represents them all.

Keep the hyperbole down a tad :roll:

A defendant might have their own solicitor, but in a court case you employ a barrister to advocate for you for the trial. A Junior counsel assists the barrister. Why would a defendant have three solicitors and no barrister or junior counsel?

That's our legal system. It applies equally to all. Joan Burton wanted a mass trial? with 'dodgy' Garda evidence?

Moaning, whinging shite that defines her.

What happened at the protest is not the story. The story is how the State tried to destroy protestors and failed.

Actually, they did manage to drive one protester to his death, so I suppose you can chalk that one down as a victory if you want. :roll:
