    Intruder’s fair assessment of Pat Kenny



    THE Late Late Show was dramatically interrupted last night after a man walked up to Pat Kenny soon after it went on air.


    The presenter was about to begin an interview with the 'You're a Star' judges when the incident happened.


    The man, who was dressed in a leather jacket and jeans, stood before Mr Kenny. He said: "You and Gay Byrne are insufferable. You're a piece of s**t."


    Mr Kenny, who initially seemed to think it was a set up, looked up at the man in disbelief.

                So the Muppet Show was interupted. Awwww. Its a pity your man was pissed, it would have had better clout if he was sober. You can take it that I have no time for Pat Kenny of the Muppet Show.


                I was in the audience for one of Kenny's early attempts at the Late Late and it was not an enjoyable experice. The man has no personality.


                I can't understand however how a drunk man got in. We were offered a glass of wine in the foyer before the show started. He must have had a bottle or three.


                More seriously though, if that guy had a weapon or was another Michael Stone, it could have been far worse. Security at RTE is obviously a little lacking and someones head is sure to roll.

                            THE enraged man who disrupted the Late Late Show on Friday night is obsessed with road safety. He was incensed at not being given airtime to present his hardline theories that include mounting garda checkpoints outside every pub at closing time.


                            He was named by garda sources as Paul Stokes, from Monkstown in south Dublin, and it is understood that he has bombarded RTE for several months with more than 150 emails.


                            He is trying to gain publicity for the "black box" technology he has invented. He claims this would eliminate all accidents and wanted to "sell" the idea for €5m.


                            It is believed Mr Stokes had trailed National Road Safety chief executive Mr Noel Brett, who was due to appear on the Late Late, the world's longest-running chat show.


                            Mr Stokes's daughter Aoife is a Late Late Show reseacher. He said he was sorry for upsetting his daughter who was not talking to him, but he loved her very much.


                            He said his real target on the show was Noel Brett, Road Safety Authority CEO, whom he believed was going to be a guest on the show. In recent weeks, he had blocked the front doors of the National Road Safety Authority with his car.


                            He also tried to gatecrash the Fianna Fail Ard-Fheis, and has contacted newspaper reporters, making outlandish allegations against Gay Byrne and the Road Safety Authority. The Late Late Show was dramatically interrupted when Mr Stokes walked up to Pat Kenny soon after it went on air.


                            The presenter was about to begin an interview with three You're a Star judges, including the Sunday Independent's Brendan O'Connor, when the incident happened.


                            Mr Stokes, who was dressed in a leather jacket and jeans and admitted to having had a few drinks beforehand, stood before Mr Kenny. He said: "You are a censorer . . . how dare you . . . You and Gay Byrne are insufferable arseholes. You're an arsehole. You're a piece of s**t."


                            Television chiefs immediately pulled the plug on the show, when it became clear what was happening, and broke for adverts for two minutes, while he was removed with some difficulty by security staff.


                            Mr Stokes, a company director and self-styled inventor, was later arrested by officers from Donnybrook Garda Station who detained him for questioning until about midnight. It is understood that it took eight gardai to remove him from Montrose.


                            "A file on the matter will be prepared for the DPP," the Gardai said yesterday.


                            Mr Stokes is well known to the Road Safety Authority (RSA) which has, in recent months, been involved in correspondence with him over a €5m project which, he said, could drastically reduce the number of car crashes.


                            Also, two weeks ago, Mr Stokes drove his car up onto the footpath outside Government Buildings in Ballina, which houses the RSA, and blocked the doorway.


                            He got out of the car and simply walked away, leaving the door obstructed. Staff at the building called the gardai and the car was towed away a short time later.


                            Mr Stokes' wacky plan involves every car having an on-board computer. It is believed that by using fly-by-wire technology, similar to that in aircraft, drivers would even be able to drive hands-free.


                            He is thought to have demanded the €5m up front from the RSA, which ultimately rejected the idea.


                            A spokesman for the RSA said: "Mr Stokes has contacted the RSA on a number of occasions and we have responded to his correspondence. He been spoken to, and is well known to, our CEO, Mr Noel Brett. The RSA is not the appropriate body to consider Mr Stokes' €5m project."


                            Yesterday, Gay Byrne, chairman of the Road Safety Authority, told how Mr Stokes had approached the RSA and promised to "solve all problems" in relation to road safety for €5m.


                            "We said 'thanks but no thanks'," Mr Byrne said.


                            The former Late Late Show presenter also revealed how Mr Stokes had "bombarded" the RTE
                            New infraction avoidance policy: a post may be described as imbecilic, but its author should never be described as an imbecile.

                              As for the "wacky idea", it's not all that wacky at all. The UK already has pay as you go black boxes using GPS for insurance purposes. Not a huge step to actually controlling cars.

                              AA Motoring Trust said Norwich Union's pay-as-you-drive car insurance policy for drivers could reduce accidents.


                              Under the scheme, an in-car "black box" device calculates premiums based on when, and how often, the car is used.


                              The AA said charging people more for driving late night when many accidents occur could change driver behaviour, particularly among the young. <!- E SF ->


                              "During the early hours of the morning, you are 17 times more likely to be involved in an accident if you are a young driver," said Andrew Howard, head of road safety at the AA Motoring Trust.


                              "Anything which makes young people think again about taking to the roads during these hours - such as having to pay high insurance costs - is likely to have an effect on accidents."


                              Pilot success


                              The nationwide roll-out of Norwich Union's pay-as-you-drive cover follows a successful pilot scheme, during which 5,000 drivers who were fitted with in-car devices to monitor when, how often and on which roads they drove.


                              The company will offer policies for motorists with a sliding scale of charges in two different age groups.


                              Charges for drivers aged 24 to 65 go as low as 1p a mile for off-peak motorway driving while under-23s will be charged up to £1 a mile when driving at night.


                              The company has said the latter charge will discourage young drivers from taking to the road between 11pm and 6am, which is seen as a high-risk time for accidents involving inexperienced motorists.


                              Low-mileage reward


                              Data collected from the GPS-based devices installed by Norwich Union will be used to work out how much drivers need to pay on a monthly basis.
