What a gas

The Sunday Times

July 12, 2009

Your aptly doctored photos of two of the protagonists in the Shell to Sea campaign in army garb (D-Day: the Mayo landing, Focus, last week) made me laugh.

But maybe the mock-up was appropriate given that in the public mind the battle is over and the end is in sight. D-Day indeed. With the disposition of some of the ringleaders to step aside and let imported young students take the rap, I am reminded of the last days of WWII when boy soldiers were encouraged to take up cudgels.

Credit is due to the government and its agencies for standing firm in the face of threats and intimidation. Spurious claims about safety have long been put to bed. Bring on the gas; too much time has been wasted.
