Boris Johnson could resign if Theresa May signals she will pursue a ?Swiss-style? Brexit, even though he is publicly denying he will walk away from the cabinet. AdvertisementsA

…only last week we were considering on the site the category error made by some who confused Trump’s unilateralism with what is clearly anything but isolationism. And this week Trump visits the UN. Be afraid. Be very afraid. “The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or […]A

Well here’s a straw in the wind, the Guardian reports that… The overwhelming majority of grassroots delegates attending next week?s Labour conference in Brighton are Jeremy Corbyn supporters who support reforms to democratise the party, according to data compiled by Momentum. The Corbyn-supporting group believes that of the 1,155 delegates chosen by constituency parties to […]A

Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin has insisted his party will not enter government with Sinn Féin, describing the party as ?IRA apologists? and ?cult-like?.Mr Martin said any democratic party would have difficulties doing business with Sinn Féin and the controlling manner in which it conducts politics. So different of course from the party that he […]A

Very good, if very depressing podcast on the Guardian recently about the question of the Border. The contributors are listed below. Lisa O?Carroll, the Guardian?s Brexit correspondent, Ruth Taillon from the Centre for Cross Border Studies, and Martina Anderson, a Northern Irish MEP for Sinn Féin. All excellent to be honest. But one point brought […]A

Hmmm? not sure Newton Emerson is going to win many plaudits with his attempt to critique and criticise Catalan nationalism here – or rather SF by extension and its support for same. There?s something a bit unpleasant about how glibly he dismisses it. It can be seen how this might extend Irish sympathies to the […]A

Last weekend I bought a copy of The ?Atlas Of The Irish Revolution? . Spent a few hours browsing through it and it really is an incredible piece of work. The maps, writing, pictures, material from the era are fantastic. It is a credit to all involved. Theres an extract on the War in Cork […]A

I?ve been scanning Adrian Kavanagh?s summer polls – in anticipation of the batch of polls no doubt heading our way this next month as the Dáil returns. They?re far from uninteresting. A couple of thoughts. FG – new leader and all, hardly managed to breach 30% across the recess. Essentially FG and FF have been […]A

Reading about Gibraltar in the Guardian I took a quick look at the comments. Should I have bothered? Probably not. But what was fascinating was the attitude of some – presumably – English contributors who were eager to big up the importance of the place to the local Spanish economy. This may not be incorrect […]A

This report in the Guardian is depressing if accurate: Rightwing populists could make up the biggest opposition force in the next German parliament after a series of scandals appear to have galvanised rather than weakened the chances of the far-right in next Sunday?s election. The Eurosceptic, anti-immigration Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) party has pulled up […]A
