Irish Examiner compares water protesters with Provisional IRA



By Anthony Sheridan

This is what the editor of the Irish Examiner thinks of water charges protesters:

Those who campaigned against the (water) charges might disagree and imagine, like the Provos, that they won the war when nothing more than a ceasefire has been called.

Make no mistake about it water charges will be imposed under one heading or another no matter how loudly the minority who oppose them shout.

Comparing citizens who engage in the democratic right of peaceful protest with the Provisional IRA is an indication of how far ethical/professional standards have fallen in mainstream media.
