Big Ignorant Fucker from Offaly Allows No Mockery
The prankster who created a furore when his nude portraits of Brian Cowen, the Irish Prime Minister, were hung in two of Dublin's most prestigious galleries faced prison yesterday after police discovered his identity.
Mr Casby could be prosecuted for indecency, incitement to hatred and criminal damage - for hammering a nail into a wall of the National Gallery of Ireland. If convicted, he would face a heavy fine and possibly even a stint in jail.
Also in the dock is RTÉ, Ireland's leading public broadcaster, for daring to report the incident. After receiving a formal complaint from the Taoiseach's office, the Irish equivalent of the BBC was forced to issue a grovelling apology to Mr Cowen on its main evening bulletin.
A detective told ...that he was under “pressure from on high ... the powers that be wanted it investigated”.
RTÉ, meanwhile, removed its light-hearted story from its website and delivered a contrite and sombre apology, read by one of the nation's best-known news presenters.
Michael Kennedy, a member of the Irish Parliament for Fianna Fáil, the ruling party, which Mr Cowen leads, insisted that the RTÉ report was “a gross insult to the dignity of the office of Taoiseach”. He called on RTÉ's director-general to tender his resignation.
"Dignity of the office of Taoiseach” what a joke, with the fat fucker there, what dignity? With this sort of reaction Ireland shows that its leaders are third world politicians.
