Looney Tune?

The Minister for Justice, Michael McDowell has announced the Government is giving the Gardai €6.5m to tackle organised crime in Dublin.

It is a response to the spiraling level of violence in the city. The Minister has also said the law is to be changed to deal with gang warfare. A new offence is to be created for sawing off the barrel of a shotgun.

Sounds good right? But what has McDowell termed this new campaign? Wait for it..."Operation Anvil". What the hell were they thinking when they came up with that name? Were they watching Looney Tunes or something? Let's hope the "anvil" will be dropped on the criminal gangs who are tightening their grip on the city of Dublin. We don't want it being dropped on the Irish taxpayers...
