Nation Calls On Government To Postpone Anglo Inquiry In Favour Of Lions Snub Inquiry


Australia v British & Irish Lions - British & Irish Lions Tour 2013 2nd Test

THOUSANDS of angry Irish people  are expected to take to the capitals streets today in protest of Irish rugby players, Brian O’Driscoll and Jamie Heaslip’s recent lay-off from the Lions tour.

The majority of the nation called on the government to postpone the proposed Anglo inquiry in favour of a Lions inquiry into the snub, which will see the two stars benched for Saturday’s final and deciding third Test against Australia.

“The Anglo tapes are meaningless in comparison.” said one very angry Irish man, Donnie McCormick. “This needs to be addressed as soon as possible.”

“The banking inquiry can wait another five years.” he added.

Outrage struck when the Lions’ couch announced that Wales’ Alun Wyn Jones will captain the side on Saturday.

Several Irish reporters were said to be in a critical but stable condition in hospital following the announcement of the teams line up at the press office.

“At least five lads fainted from the shock and had to be carried out of the press conference.” said one camera man who witnessed the team announcement. “The oxygen in the room was very thin due to the gasps from journalists.”

Meanwhile in the Dail, Taoiseach Enda Kenny called on the Irish nation to remain calm over the news, and promised he will do everything in his power to reverse the decision.

Four hundred thousand people are expected to march on the streets later this evening in protest of the Lions snub.
