by Ramin Mazaheri for The Saker Blog I?d say it?s a pretty low bar to be the greatest political movie off all-time?. Perhaps movies are just too sensationalistic by nature

This is interesting, and I missed it last month (being away on holiday – ironically in Donegal). NORTHERN Ireland would vote more strongly to remain in the European Union if there was another Brexit poll, a new study has suggested. A poll has found that 71 per cent would favour remain if there was another […]A

Web Summit founder Paddy Cosgrave has rescinded an invitation to far right politician Marine Le Pen to this year?s conference.In a series of tweets, Mr Cosgrave said that ?based on advice we have received on the large reaction online overnight, her presence is disrespectful in particular to our host country.? You don?t say. Though Mark […]A

Enjoyable IT podcast during the week. Firstly it engaged with the issue of a Labour leadership challenge. As is now well known some within that august body want Howlin to remain, a number of seats to be retaken (Ged Nash and Aodhan O?Riordain in particular) and then the leadership to pass to one or other […]A

Speaking of Hot Press and Jason O’Toole, another reason to get a look is an interview with FF TD Lisa Chamber. One point in particular stands out…O’Toole notes that Stephen Donnelly last year told HP that he didn’t believe that Ireland should still be a neutral country. So what is Chamber’s take? ‘We’re militarily neutral. […]A

Great point made on The Majority Report (which I have mixed feelings on) by Italian author Francesco Pacifico who talks about Matteo Salvini and the Italian Lega and the manner in which the Lega?s utter disdain and hostility for non-Northern Italians, something that typified them up until hardly a decade ago, has transformed into anti-immigrant […]A

From Hot Press this week an interview conducted by Jason O’Toole with former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. A lot in there to unpick and a lot of gems along the way. Not least this brilliant exchange… Has Trump read the book? He has it. He and the Vice President have copies. Whether they?ve […]A

US President Donald Trump has revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan, accusing him of using his access to classified information to “sow division and chaos” about the Trump administration. President Trump announced the decision in a statement read by White House press secretary Sarah Sanders at her daily news briefing. … […]A

Cometh the hour, cometh the man. Again. Perhaps. Seán Gallagher is “actively considering” a second bid at becoming President of Ireland and could announce his intentions to contest the autumn election within the next fortnight. RTÉ News has also learned that the web domain has been registered in recent days.A

David Plotz on the political gabfest – which by the by feels so detached from Slate as almost to be another entity entirely, and arguably much more considered – made a very interesting point. Talking about Brian Kemp, the Republican gubernatorial candidate in Georgia he argued that Kemp typifies a contemporary Republican phenomenon which […]A
