The Right Hon Member for W. Belfast's Toronto Poetry Reading

Gerry Kerouac's "World Whimsy Tour" hits Toronto:
The auditorium at the Ontario Institute For Studies in Education (OISE) in Toronto was filled with Irish nationalism on Saturday.
...not filled with a very well-informed "Irish nationalism" it would seem though:
Posters with photos of men and women such as Michael Collins, an Irish revolutionary leader and Bobby Sands, a hunger striker who was elected into the British government in the 1980s, were spread, among other Irish nationalists, along the stage.
...or perhaps Gerry K is rewriting inconvenient history again- Gerry and Marty weren't the first Republicans to adminster "British Rule in Ireland"?

Other than that inconsequential side-issue, nothing whatsover for Unionists to worry about here, though it was eh...ironic to see the caption "Glamorizing the grotesque" directly to the right of Gerry's mug.
