Two major polls on Tuesday showed that New Zealand's Labour jumped five percentage points following Jacinda Ardern's shock resignation. Kiwis are glad to see the back of her too, it seems.

South Korea saw a large spike in excess mortality even after 90% of over 80s were double-vaccinated. Yet Hong Kong saw an even greater spike. And there, less than 30% of over 80s were double-vaccinated.

All Welcome
10 years of controversy in Irish history. Why is this research so controversial - the newspaper cutting is one reason
10 years of controversy in Irish history. Why is this research so controversial - the newspaper cutting is one reason

Troubled History examines the uncritical academic and media reception afforded to Peter Hart's research, prior to and after publication in 1998. It traces the history of the dispute with Hart's findings and engages with contemporary sources.

The pamphlet publishes an affidavit from the son of the last surviving veteran of the Kilmichael Ambush of November 1920, Ned Young. Young died on November 13 1989. His death was reported in the Southern Star on November 18 1989. Hart reported interviewing a Kilmichael veteran on November 19.

Niall Meehan's analysis of Hart's 1992 PhD thesis, on which The IRA and its Enemies was based, reveals new anomalies within this important research. Brian Murphy's essay points to the continuing use of Hart's research to paint the Irish War of Independence as a sectarian, ethnic conflict. Meehan and Murphy question the evidential adequacy of this view and trace it back to Hart's work.
