I have nobody other than Twenty Major and Blogorrah to confirm this but Fianna Fáil have ruffled the feathers of a particularly pedantic anti-drugs campaigner by playing The Fratelli's pleasing toe-tapper 'Chelsea Dagger' at their Ard Fheis. It includes the line 'She gave me gear' - 'gear' being, I believe, what some of the younger generation call some illegal substance. Ms Gráinne Quinn of Europe Against Drugs was obviously listening out for something she desperately wanted to hear. I am rather shocked and saddened that this fine song will henceforth be inextricably associated with those gobshites, the Soldiers of Destiny.
