'Last year we revealed that the Department of Justice was working on secret plans to introduce internet filtering in Ireland.

Jesus H. Christ, this is incredibly nonsensical. Green Party candidate Eamonn Ryan proposes replacing the TV license fee with an internet tax -- 'some small charge on the volume of data.'  WTF

fast work from new FF leader Micheal Martin: 'None of those who complained consented to their details being used to contact them in this way and none could establish how Fianna Fáil obtained their addresses.'
