We?ve been doing this a while and it struck me perhaps it might make sense to sharpen up the question above, at least once a month, so… Depressing conversation on climate change and the recent IPCC report on the political gabfest podcast. In it David Plotz suggested that he was now deeply pessimistic about […]A

Been reading up on Mitch McConnell who, without question, is one of the most astute, albeit cynical, politicians in the US. Thing is when he started out he was quite the moderate. Pro-union, pro-abortion rights, pro-civil rights, etc, etc. And then in 1984 according to NPR: “There was no question what had happened ? that […]A

Reading this good piece in the Guardian on the issue of police political spies a thought struck me, at what point did anyone seriously believe any of the formations on the list linked to earlier this week were going to present a serious threat to the British (or any other) state – or at least […]A

First up who saw the debate last night? I couldn’t due to a prior event, but by all accounts… well sheesh. Peter Casey doubled down on his earlier comments. What he thinks he is doing escapes me. Meanwhile interesting to see how the non participation of the incumbent is becoming a story in itself. That?s […]A

A very disturbing RTÉ Brexit Republic podcast this last week by Tony Connelly which engaged with the impact of Brexit on rights enshrined in the Good Friday/Belfast Agreement. Would strongly recommend people listen to it, it?s the second part and the podcast itself is only thirty minutes long. The equivalency of protection is lost in […]A

Nate Silver has a sharp critique of the New York Times, as expressed here, which I think has a much broader applicability both in terms of media and beyond the US 2016 Presidential election. I think they are way too reliant on ? first of all, in 2016 they were very, very subscribed to the […]A

In the IT today there’s a poll that makes for grim reading for some of the candidates – actually strike that, pretty much all of them, though less grim for one of them than the one a few days ago. Michael D Higgins 66 per cent; Sean Gallagher 12 per cent; Liadh Ni Riada 11 […]A

I’m talking about that curious intervention by Brendan Howlin today where he stated that: Earlier, Mr Howlin said a “very dangerous” suggestion was being made in Europe that the Irish backstop issue should be postponed or deferred. He said colleagues in Europe have indicated this suggestion was being considered. “I think that is very dangerous […]A
