by Ramin Mazaheri for The Saker Blog I?d say it?s a pretty low bar to be the greatest political movie off all-time?. Perhaps movies are just too sensationalistic by nature

I like Simon Pegg. Perhaps a bit more after reading this in the Guardian recently. Before I met Pegg, I was warned that he wasn?t the easiest to interview. That he could be prickly ? difficult, even. Maybe I have caught him on a good day, but there is no sign of this. Not only […]A

Apologies for the Dublin centric topic of this post but I cycle past this every day – Capital Dock – and it seems to me to be unbelievably drab (nice photo though). Is there going to be cladding put on the exterior? Speaking of high rise buildings, fascinating to see that the highest are in […]A

Gasper Nali plays an instrument called a babatoni which he build himself. It’s a single string with a resonator made of cow hide which is played with a stick on one hand and a bottle in the other. There’s a type of drum played with his foot also. It gives a rather electric sound. The […]A

This is interesting, and I missed it last month (being away on holiday – ironically in Donegal). NORTHERN Ireland would vote more strongly to remain in the European Union if there was another Brexit poll, a new study has suggested. A poll has found that 71 per cent would favour remain if there was another […]A

Web Summit founder Paddy Cosgrave has rescinded an invitation to far right politician Marine Le Pen to this year?s conference.In a series of tweets, Mr Cosgrave said that ?based on advice we have received on the large reaction online overnight, her presence is disrespectful in particular to our host country.? You don?t say. Though Mark […]A

Enjoyable IT podcast during the week. Firstly it engaged with the issue of a Labour leadership challenge. As is now well known some within that august body want Howlin to remain, a number of seats to be retaken (Ged Nash and Aodhan O?Riordain in particular) and then the leadership to pass to one or other […]A

Speaking of Hot Press and Jason O’Toole, another reason to get a look is an interview with FF TD Lisa Chamber. One point in particular stands out…O’Toole notes that Stephen Donnelly last year told HP that he didn’t believe that Ireland should still be a neutral country. So what is Chamber’s take? ‘We’re militarily neutral. […]A

Great point made on The Majority Report (which I have mixed feelings on) by Italian author Francesco Pacifico who talks about Matteo Salvini and the Italian Lega and the manner in which the Lega?s utter disdain and hostility for non-Northern Italians, something that typified them up until hardly a decade ago, has transformed into anti-immigrant […]A
