The Republic of Ireland must tighten up its dog licensing laws, First Minister Ian Paisley has said.
His call followed an investigation into dog fighting and the illegal trade in the animals by the BBC’s Spotlight.
The programme showed how the dogs were being smuggled into Northern Ireland through the Irish Republic.
Yes, ladies and germs, the IDQCT… translation service has that as:
The damn media have caught us out not being able to enforce our own laws. You must enact the same laws so that the blame is shared, or we’ll just say you’re to blame for it all.
Ah, cross-border bodies being used to appropriate blame. Who could have seen that happening?
