Thought this by Kenan Malik in the Observer is well judged. He writes about how: …[in the late 1960s] the Tory leader, Edward Heath, drove through the north-east of England. ?If I lived here,? he remarked to a friend, as Dominic Sandbrook recounts in his book White Heat, ?I wouldn?t vote for Harold Wilson. And […]A

Was reading a number of pieces in the media that exhibit a newfound caution about the pandemic and the reopening. Perhaps that is due to the scenes in Dublin at the weekend, perhaps due to the rising cases in a variety of places that have ‘reopened’ – one thinks of Catalonia, Australia (this from there […]A

Today’s the day. Micheál Martin faces… …his first round of questions in the Dáil today when the House resumes this afternoon. Presumably not quite the day he envisaged even a week ago given that: Later this evening, Minister for Agriculture Barry Cowen will make a statement in the Dáil outlining the circumstances around the ban […]A

Who would have thought it? What a surprise! Drunk people are unable to properly socially distance, the chairman of the British Police Federation has said as pubs reopened in England for the first time since lockdown. John Apter said it was “crystal clear” revellers would not adhere to the one metre plus rule as restrictions […]A

Sinn Féin has never sought to hide its relationship with the IRA but it has attracted little media comment, apart from occasions when it became so obvious it could not be ignored. Stephen Collins appears oblivious to years of press coverage of SF. I like the ‘even’ in the following paragraph… The limits of even […]A

Thanks to Joe Mooney for sending a link to this… a great Christmas present, or Summer read… Advocating nuclear war, attempting communication with dolphins and taking an interest in the paranormal and UFOs, there is perhaps no greater (or stranger) cautionary tale for the Left than that of Posadism. Named after the Argentine Trotskyist J. […]A

Thought this worth noting: Lawmakers in the Mississippi House and Senate voted Sunday to remove the Confederate battle emblem from their state flag, which is the last in the nation to display the symbol.
