…in the Mirror, conducted by Jason O’Toole. Was away for weekend and only just seen this. It’s certainly an insight into FG thinking, not least on a more recent series of events concerning a TD, but one paragraph caught my eye immediately. Senator Catherine Noone was left shaken when an angry constituent blasted her for […]A

Thought the Observer editorial this weekend was pretty good in outlining the case for Jeremy Corbyn being given the opportunity to form a ‘time-limited national government’. For many it will be far from optimal, but what other force is in the field in such numbers that it could actually work. Moreover it does point up […]A

Many thanks to the person who forwarded this to the Archive. https://www.clririshleftarchive.org/organisation/239/ This is a fascinating short communication from the Belfast Branch of the Revolutionary Marxist Group to the rest of the organisation over a proposal […]A

General Jarulzelski agreed on 18 August to a Solidarity government on two conditions which he relayed to Lech Walesa – first that Poland would remain within the socialist bloc and secondly that the Interior and Defence Ministries would be retained by the Communists. Walesa agreed to both. Apparently at this time Ceausescu had been seeking […]A

This is eye-candy for me. Drone footage of Arranmore, off the coast of Donegal and a place I know pretty well. I?m always a bit leery about drones, but for this sort of camera work they?re undeniably useful. And though this is an ad, albeit some interesting if dispiriting information, there’s some lovely footage.A

This is entertaining, sort of. In the Guardian Rachel Hall writes from Derry about murals – and the headline argues they have a ?new? status as tourist attractions. This will, of course, come as news to many who have seen that status accorded to them for many years (though whoever wrote the subhead didn?t bother […]A

Have to repeat former BLP MP, Gisela Stuart’s, ringing declaration from the Guardian: It was wrong to label as ?extremist? anyone who suggested that if the UK and the EU could not reach an agreement we should leave in any case. Just as it is wrong now to imply that the only way of avoiding […]A

Did anyone get to Apollo 11, the documentary using footage from the time? I missed it while I was away over the Summer, but looking forward to seeing it released on DVD or Blu-Ray. Meanwhile, for a very good take on the Moon landing, try Cosmic Vertigo podcast on Australian ABC RN which I also […]A

Always enjoyed Gary Gibson?s science fiction novels, particularly the Shoal sequence. But the later Apocalypse Duology was pretty good, albeit the second one dipped a bit and became, as I recall, super bleak. Anyhow, he?s now self-publishing and has released a third novel, Doomsday Game, in that sequence as well as a collection of short […]A

Thinking about Joy Division, and forty years of Unknown Pleasures – everything’s an anniversary this year (soon we have the second Summer(s) of Love, I kid you not), and how they’ve neatly slotted into the fairly diffuse musical canon of what is regarded as appropriate and worthy of note – what else is in there.
