At the daily press conference by the Department of Health on Tuesday last (31 March) the question of the backlog of tests for the virus that causes Covid-19 disease was raised by a journalist. Dr Colm Henry, the Chief Clinical Officer at the HSE, gave the first answer in which he explained that there is […]A

Quite a crop this week. A good statement, from David McWilliams no less The Ireland that emerges from this crisis will have ?a much more social democratic future,? says McWilliams. ?The idea that you will reward hedge fund managers in multiples of how you reward nurses just won?t wash. Taxes will rise. Public services will […]A

This time for the British Labour Party, a party many of us know well having been involved in it one way or another. Predictably, Keir Starmer is the new leader. Sir Keir Starmer?s victory, winning 56.2% of the vote in the race to become Labour leader, is almost on a par with that of Tony […]A

I knew the word fiddlesticks but hadn’t actually realised what exactly they were and how they were used. It’s so strange seeing two people playing the same instrument and doing so in time and total coherence as I’m sure a stray fiddle stick might give your knuckle or finger a nice bang. The sticks themselves […]A

Gewerkschaftler suggested this recently: I suggest this blog should have a regular (weekly) slot where people can post happenings at the personal or political level that gives them hope that we?re perhaps not going to hell in a handbasket as quickly as we thought. Or as the phlegmatic Germans put it ?hope dies last?. Any […]A

I was fascinated by this piece in the IT which engaged with those involved in travel agencies and so on about the prospects for a return to tourism and holidays.

This divergence has been noted and criticised by the Guardian, medical […]A
