I think it would have done our cause more harm than good,” he said.However Mr McLaughlin said he WILL press ahead with plans to protest during next week’s visit of US President Barack Obama.The Donegal haulier, who has already led protests to Leinster House, was due to meet with dozens of truckers tonight to discuss plans for their protest.“We are deadly serious about this. We have been left with no alternative. The Government keeps putting us on the long finger. “We want the world to know that drivers are being taxed off the road and we will not sit by and watch that happen,” he said.EndsTRUCK BOSS CALLS OFF PROTEST FOR QUEEN’S VISIT BUT US PRESIDENT’S PROTEST IS STILL ON was last modified: May 16th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img
