Ogra Shinn Fein have produced a youth election broadcast for the upcoming by election in Enniskillen on Wednesday 17 September.

The youth electon broadcast urges young people from the relevant electoral ward to come out and vote for Sinn Fein’s candidate Debbie Coyle and visualises the advances that Sinn Fein have made in recent times.

It also includeds a number of short interviews with Mary Lou McDonald MEP and Fermanagh/South Tyrone MP Michelle Gildernew.

And it traces the strong legacy of republican candidates being elected in Fermanagh, most notably, the election of Bobby Sands MP, whilst on Hungerstrike in 1981.

It has been alleged that Proinsias De Rossa, who is due to retire as MEP for Dublin at the next election, was involved in scuffle outside the Labour Party Meeting at Liberty Hall in Dublin last night. The meeting was to discuss the upcoming Lisbon Treaty referendum.

Reports say that De Rossa tried to take a video camera away from someone who was filming him, in a public place, outside the meeting. In the scuffle he fell and while he was on the ground, somebody sat on him, it is claimed.

Younger readers may not be aware of the the long political journey of Mr De Rossa, who was once a strong supporter of the IRA, and spent time in prison in the 1950's. read full story / add a comment

The British National Party is urging its members to drop anti-semitism in favour of Islamophobia in order to win votes ahead of May’s assembly elections in London . Its leader ,Nick Griffin ,has written in favour of “adopting an 'Islamophobic' position that appeals to large numbers of ordinary people”. Targeting Zionist voters and former supporters of the ,now largely defunct , UK Independence Party , the BNP expects to pick up the necessary votes to win at least one seat in the election . One of its councillor , Pat Richardson , is quoted in today’s Guardian saying :
"I'm in the BNP because no one else speaks out against the Islamification of our country."

In all the bustle of Dail ovations and political punditry on the resignation of
Mr Ahern the other things that have happened today include the Publication
of the White Paper on Lisbon.

The EU is a power and the treaty will tighten up the 'drift' (whatever on earth that means)
between EU parliament and citizen. It's got something to do with 'traction', which is
the term used by Mr Roche. Mr Roche heads up the EU reform process in Ireland,
but Dermott Ahern Provided the launch and Junket. read full story / add a comment

The Breast cancer unit at Mayo General Hospital is to be phased out under the HSE
policy of Professor Brendan Drumm, many who travelled to the Breast cancer protest
in buses and stood in the cold to highlight lack of services to the North-West will be heavily
disappointed in the decision for the scheduled phase-out. Mostly they will be disappointed
in the TD whom they elected who upholds the decision of the 'medical men' who know
best. http://www.indymedia.ie/article/85161
Ms Flynn was at that protest, she most purposefully strode across the road to listen
to the women speak and then she turned her back on them to support Mary Harney
and the HSE. read full story / add a comment

3 exit polls in the Spanish state concur that Zapatero has won the General Election in that state with an absolute majority of both votes cast & seats won.

Over the Pyrennes in the French state, the electorate had its first opportunity to chastise Sarkozy, which exit polls appear to suggest has seen the left win 47% to a right wing 40%.

In addition the Spanish PSOE or socialist party has won the autonomous elections for the Andalucian parliament. It appears the Spanish like liberal modernity even if the onions cost a lot & are prepared to continue with the Zapatero project for another four years. read full story / add a comment

Democracy Iranian style: you are not allowed to stand for election if the Iranian Regime doesnt like your opinions! Under the Iranian political system, potential candidates are vetted twice, once by the interior ministry and the second time by the Guardian Council, which is made up of Islamic clerics. Full report at the link from the well known Pro US Propagandists Al Jazeera.

The Iranian government has barred more than 2,000 prospective candidates from contesting in forthcoming parliamentary elections, in effect removing the biggest rival to hardliners in power.

Most of those disqualified were seeking democratic changes within Iran's ruling Islamic government led by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president. read full story / add a comment
