'Mad Myers' is M.I.A.
This is getting worrying…
Day 2 of "Myers Watch" is upon us, and the Colonel is (once again) in restrained, sensitive (for him), and reflective mood.
Two days of sober commentary in a row! Is this some kind of record? Where's the Raw Myersian bile we know and…er…'love'?
Not only was there an alarming absence of the usual lunacy in today's "Irishman's Diary" but the Colonel actually came off sounding like a multi-culturalist embracer of the huddled immigrant masses (no, seriously). Take the following for example:
So it's worth bearing in mind that the black girl with the funny accent serving in the supermarket, the Filipino changing your bandages in the hospital, the slender Pole serving you in the restaurant, the Ukrainian builder struggling to make himself understood - why, these are not foreigners at all. Our foreigners are the violent, vicious natives we saw rampaging through Dublin last weekend.
Will the real Kevin Myers please stand up? If things don't change we’ll have to pack in this venture for lack of good, old-fashioned, scandal…
