Last September’s gun shots…

For all the angst over the Dublin riots, here’s videophone footage of last September’s riots in Belfast. Most of it is a fairly lengthy shot of a bunch of guys ‘spontaneously’ hacking a metal lampost down. First they try to push it over, then a mechanical saw turns up. And just as you are waiting for someone to ignite cartoon-wise as they hit the electric wire inside, a guy steps out of the crowd and lets the PSNI have it.
