This afternoon.

At a meeting of the Oireachtas health committee.

Minister for Health Simon Harris mentions those posters outside his constituency office..

After which, Senator Ronán Mullen asked the minister:

“What I’m asking you is, is there a disconnect between disapproving of the posters and being in favour of the killing of children in that way?”

Mr Harris responded that he “disassociated”himself from the language of Senator Mullen and that he will campaign for a Yes vote.

As if It hadn’t sufficiently whetted appetites for season 2 (which starts on October 27th), Netflix promos its landmark series with a range of appropriately low res tributes to posters from 80s horror movies Firestarter, Alien (a few months short of the 80s in fairness), Stand By Me, A Nightmare On Elm Street and Evil Dead.
