Irish Examiner: Water protesters to blame for global over-population

I’ve read many silly editorials in my time but the opinion expressed in Tuesday’s Irish Examiner has to be the most absurd, most idiotic of them all.

The subject matter is global over-population but somehow the editor manages to link this problem with the activities of those opposing water charges. Here’s a quote:

As population figures (continue to accelerate) is there any possibility that those who so vehemently oppose water charges might make a connection between the two issues?

What next?

Water charges protesters responsible for Ebola.

Hilarious bullshit.
