Eamonn Gilmore: What I'm Going To Do About MV Saoirse

Rio: Questioned, outside the Dail today, about the sabotage of the Irish ship MV Saoirse on its way to Gaza as part of a flotilla aiming to break the Israeli blockade and deliver humanitarian aid, Mr Gilmore said,
"I am going to do several things about this. I am going to shake my head now, in disgust. I am going to say that I am shocked at the endangerment of Irish lives.
I am going to say that I am flabbergasted at the wanton lack of respect for the rule of law and I will say that I will be taking the matter up with the Israeli Ambassador. I will be unflinching in my determination to get to the bottom of this and to ensure that the perpetrators are brought to justice. Later today, I will meet with the American Ambassador, I will sit down in a comfy chair, be handed a cigar and I will breathe a sigh of relief. I will explain to the Americans that I have to say that shit to keep the masses happy. 'They love that justice, humanitarian, people working together, blah, blah, nonsense, Mr. Ambassador. What I really think Mr. Ambassador is fuck em. I'm in the passenger seat of Enda Kenny's rocket to the power moon now and I ain't goin' nowhere. You do what yiz like with your Israeli friends Mr Ambassador, I'll keep the public quiet and we'll all have a ball. Dominique Strauss Kahn's gonna get out of that Guinean jam and he'll decide who the President of France is. It'll be a Socialist, like himself and meself, (I want to be the same kind of Socialist as DSK), and that'll keep the French masses happy for ages. It's gonna be one long party now that we're all in it together, you Americans, the Israelis, the Unions, the Socialists, the Capitalists, the Swingers, the Rapists, the Non- Rapists, all one big happy democratic family'. Then I'll ask him to pass the scotch."
