Don’t those morons know ,that they are following the ramblings of a sixth century paedophile?
Good for her, for cancelling rather than conceding. The important thing is that she be in one piece and fighting fit for Dublin in September!
People should never just lie down and passively accept these extremists. Okay, they might well be on the receiving end of a bomb or bullet, but there is surely a bigger danger of giving extremists too big a podium, by just remaining silent.
Its doing everyone no favours in the long run!
