It is pretty much irrelevant if something is on your radar or not. A national broadcaster is there to inform and if a major event takes place in the Capital of the E:U. of which Ireland is a member, I feel Irish people have a right to be informed, we all complain about people’s ignorance on issues, but if we refuse to inform tham we cannot blame them for their ignorance.
Yesterdays protest was the largest protest ever held by the citizens of an E.U. country outside their own state, surely that in itself deserves at least a mention.
You say it is a Spanish problem, to an extent it is, but it has also opened up issues that could affect any member state, the the whole Euro arrest warrant agreement is now in question and that affects every country.
