Violent skirmishes broke out between protesters and police at the first public signing for Tony Blair's memoirs, with shoes and eggs hurled at the former prime minister.
Former prime minister attacked by anti-war protesters in Dublin as he promotes memoirs

“We were both, in our own way, manipulators” — good at grasping the feelings of others and instinctively playing on them.
Activist Kate O'Sullivan, from Cork, attempted to make a citizen's arrest during the signing before Blair's security team dragged her away.
