A piece on The Socialist Party site on Independents and Others This particular passage caught my eye…. Many of the most articulate Independents in the Dail are of a ?populist? character, with both left and right tinges. Populism could be described as reflecting moods that exist amongst the mass of people in society, but lacking […]A

Lucinda Creighton has a piece in the SBP this weekend on the banking crisis. And some of what she writes makes perfect sense. She notes that: Ireland has suffered the costliest banking crisis since the Great Depression, according to the IMF. This costliest banking crisis has resulted in improvements in the broader financial regulatory regime, […]A

As IEL notes this morning the latest news on Irish Water is a massive blow both to the governments plans and any aura of competency. Getting this wrong is near inexplicable and is bound to impact negatively upon the closing months of this government. It also makes one wonder what assurances were given by the […]A

From The Irish Times The State funds spent on Irish Water will have to stay on the exchequer balance sheet, under a decision by Eurostat, the EU statistics agency. The ruling is a blow to the Government?s strategy on water investment, and will mean that a hoped-for boost to the 2016 budget figures will not […]A

The launch of the Social Democrats was marked by a number of aspects that are well worth a look. For a start, there was none of the fuss that was made by other rivals of logos and suchlike. Nor, and this was crucial, was there the concentration on a single individual as a personification of […]A

Following on from the news earlier this evening about housing prices cooling marginally, what of this? RTÉ News has learned that Dublin City Council is proposing to relax its minimum apartment standards to cope with housing demand in the city as part of the new development plan. A new studio apartment classification with a smaller […]A

According to the latest figures from the CSO, property prices fell by 0.4% in the capital in the month, but were still 11.1% higher than in June the previous year. Nationally, prices rose by 0.1% in the month. Granted it’s a small decline, but… somewhat deviating from the script of ever upwards, isn’t it?A

William Keegan has another excellent column in the Observer yesterday where he notes that for all that the Tories are flying high in the polls at the moment there is likely trouble ahead. As he posits: History demonstrates that Labour is capable of coming back from the dead ? eventually. And to my mind, with […]A

This isn’t unusual, for IBEC have been banging the drum for quite some time... Ibec has said the economy needs an extra ?2.5bn a year in investment spending, of which about a billion would come from Government. And nor is this. [they have said] European Union fiscal rules could undermine the recovery in the economy, […]A
