This is a fascinating piece – a submission to the Citizens Assembly from an anti-abortion speaker. Dr. Dónal O?Mathúna, Associate Professor of Ethics at Dublin City University offers his views on the matters at hand. What I find particularly notable is the way in which everything is framed in soft language but at every point […]A

Check this out. An account of 45 minute Skype session with a leading thinker of our time. Who could it be who charges such sessions for a mere $200. Why it’s Jordan Peterson! Those of us who find his thoughts as expressed in his books?er?a bit limp, will not see much to change them reading […]A

The point was made on the Slate Political Gabfest that Trump almost never apologises, this in relation to the comment by one of his staffers in relation to John McCain – that he seems utterly unable to say sorry, except very very infrequently. Though, as the point was also made, the business milieu he came […]A

Excellent overview of the machinations in the UK cabinet over Brexit – Joe pointed to it in comments. Is May, still there, still hanging on, perhaps more astute than we tend to give her credit? Well, whatever else, she?s certainly a survivor. And she?s backed the Brexit proponents into something of a corner: The significance […]A

Here’s a neat demonstration of the differing weights that the EU and UK bring to the table in a Brexit world. The EU has leapt ahead of the UK in the pursuit of free trade deals with Australia and New Zealand after member states gave the green light for talks to start within weeks. With […]A

I wonder is this being too clever for their own good, the news that: [the] RTE tv debate on the forthcoming referendum on the Eighth Amendment has been thrown into chaos as the representative from Save the Eighth has pulled out at the last minute. Cora Sherlock, the representative for the No campaign, pulled out […]A

Ah now, only this morning I was suggesting a quick dip into P.ie would refresh memories, or give a sense of what 1983 was like. But hey, you don’t even have to do that. Check this out. There’s a mixture of belligerence, certainty and also self-aggradisment that is all too familiar…A

From the IT: The Human Life International Ireland, a group based in Mayo, outlined its opposition the in vitro fertilisation (IVF) in its submission. Director Patrick McCrystal said IVF was ?gravely immoral? and an affront to human dignity. ?Ministers and elective representatives simply do not have the authority to legislate for the creation of human […]A

Surely no coincidence that the four Stormont Remain parties issued a statement calling on the North to stay within the Customs Union and Single Market a day after the following is announced… Lisa O?Carroll in the Guardian writes that: Northern Ireland would vote overwhelmingly in favour of remaining in the EU if a second referendum […]A
