As a follow up to my last blog post, concerning that letter about Cowen and Coughlan, i received the following HATE MAIL in my pigeonhole at Jesus just today. Translation below the image for those who can't read "Paddy's" handwriting:|
As far as i understand it says:
"Do the world a favour.
Climb the highest spire in Oxford and
fuck yourself off it.
You arrogant West
Unfortunately, Paddy's supplied address of 'D7' is probably insufficient for me to find him, sit him down, and take him through the reasons why my letter was actually quietly concerned with proper respect for Ireland's politics and political institutions, or why i was disgusted at the carry on of the Fianna Fuckers and their general attitude which suggests that they see themselves as reigning over the people of Ireland and not elected by them, and, quite simply, why my sentiments were as far removed from those of a West Briton as possible.
Poor Paddy. And poor Paddy's child too - i'm sure they weren't at all pleased when he tore a page out of their copybook...
