Shotgungate: a visual comment

With the news that DUP Health Minister Edwin Poots sent a few shotgun rounds across the bow in order to warn off a few no good intruders doing the round I had to put this riveting imagery to cartoon.

I further felt the shotgun imagery was readily applicable to the Poots blood donor controversy that went on a few months ago and I quickly put together a cartoon on that, as you can see below:

  • Good Morning, Brian,

    That looks very much like a cartoonish Peter Robinson in front of Edwin Poots.

    Minister Poots might be reminded that he’s not the only Minister on this island who has had reason to shoot into the ‘night ‘ But at least in Poots case it was a warning shot . Not so for Minister ‘Bats Donegan ‘ who a few decades ago was embroiled in a ‘shooting ‘controversy directed at travelling people and/or bats ?.

    Re the role of Bats Donegan in the resignation of President O’Dalaigh (Daly) . I have always been of the view that Daly should never have resigned because of the remarks of Donegan who by the way became known as ‘Bats ‘ after a garda questioned him re gunshots being fired near his land apparently aimed at some travelling people . Donegan said he was not shooting at the travelling people but at bats – and in broad daylight too !
