'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…

I don't know dude. I mean yesterday he said ours was a deeply sectarian society - endemically so - but today he describes as foreign to it the very sectarian rioters whom yesterday he described as its ne plus fucking ultra!

Like episodes of The X-Files, each new Irishman's Diary begins with all previous revelations wiped clean off the slate, apparently lost to the memory of our hero(es)...

I think Myers's 'reset button' has something to do with the (obvious) ecstatic/mad fits he's in when he pens the diary.

He was probably as shocked as anyone to find that he'd channelled a malevolent spirit who wrote, scandalously, of 'bastards'.
