Unpixelated filth on Indymedia Ireland provokes proscription.The Irish Government has announced plans to ban Indymedia after the blog Sex Ireland displayed graphic scenes of its members engaged in a highly inappropriate group activity in Dublin. British members of Indymedia Ireland were pictured shamelessly protesting at Selfridges.
As soon as the Blog was published, the blog Sex Ireland was inundated with thousands of complaints. One caller’s views were typical: “I had just sat down in front of the computer with all of my family and suddenly the screen was filled with this massive prrick. I think he was from Indymedia ireland. There was no warning and he wasn’t even pixelated. My grandmother could have been watching, but thankfully she died several years ago.”
One of Indymedia Ireland's censors defended the event thus: “We live in a free society. If these people don’t want to watch one of our
demonstrations why don’t they just do the logical thing and switch to another blog. Haven’t they got anything better to do with their time than sit around complaining? Jaysus foc*king Chrrist!”
However, as the number of complaints about Sex Ireland climbed to over a million, a spokesperson for the Irish Censorship Board announced that it would be taking action after seeing a copy of Indymedia’s writer's list;“This document is utterly obscene. I’ve never seen anything like it, just pages and pages of can*ts and as for the committee, it’s just a collection of mother-foc*kers. I can’t see any justification for there being that number of can*ts in one place so we have no option but to recommend that the organisation be closed down.”
Last night, as the blog Sex Ireland logged its ten billionth complaint (from a tribesman in the Amazonian jungle) Mediawatch remained defiant. An upbeat Indymedia Ireland censor told Sex Ireland “We shall fight on. You cannot silence us. If I get my way we’re going to be on rte quite a lot in the next few weeks and in October we plan to open on Broadway. See you there!”
