Interesting to see this on Jacobin. An article with two public health experts that cleave to the herd immunity line. The odd thing is that at least one of them notes that we know very little about the virus and its impacts – particularly long term amongst those who have survived but both are utterly […]A

Always liked Owen Jones, and this interview with him in the Guardian (natch!) whets the appetite for a book he has which is being published on Labour. A very specific part of Labour’s history too: This Land: The Story of a Movement, is an insider?s account of the rise and fall of the Jeremy Corbyn?s […]A

Given the interview with archivist and historian Orla Egan of Cork LGBTQ Archive today it is only appropriate to point to some of the materials in that Archive – many of which will be of considerable interest to those involved in progressive and left campaigns over the decades. As the Archive notes, its aim is: […]A

…from Jason O’Toole in the Irish Mirror. Flannery in the course of a number of topics, raises an interesting question: ?There?s a kind of an environmental anxiety about the amount of travel that musicians do.? Is he pulling my leg?! ?No, that has crossed my mind alright,? he admitted. ?Now, whether or not I?d be […]A

Behind the paywall, but the first three paragraphs deliver a classic. Don’t think about the substance, or the recent track record, our correspondent is just sure that everything is fine with national leadership – and in the process takes a swipe at a familiar political opponent: Last Friday, with just one clearly delivered broadcast, the […]A

Some schools have done a good job since opening, others haven’t and by doing so have put their staff members in danger. The ASTI did a member survey last week and have been inundated with calls from concerned members. This action makes sense. I also think that this is also a reaction to many school […]A

A name known to some of us from NME. Shocking to hear that he had died two years ago – a tragic event that passed many of those who knew him by in part due to his private nature. He was always an entertaining music journalist and he added vocals to this from Chapterhouse, perhaps […]A
