    ‘No pylons here!’

    Pól Ó Muirí

    From today’s Irish Times: “Unionist leaders have written to Taoiseach Brian Cowen voicing concerns about the ESB’s takeover of Northern Ireland Electricity. DUP leader Peter Robinson and Ulster Unionist leader Sir Reg Empey have told the Taoiseach they are worried about the political implications of the deal…”

    Is this a unionist twist on that old republican slogan regarding British goods: “Burn everything but their coal” or a case of – ahem – “No pylons here!”

      Maybe Mr. Robinson is concerned that the ESB will only allow tricolours to be flown from any new pylons.
