This might interest some here: Cluskey: The Conscience of Labour reviewed by Barry Desmond Since the foundation of Dáil Éireann only two taoisigh, Garret FitzGerald and Albert Reynolds, have published memoirs. Only a handful of former government ministers have attempted to do so. As the fifth parliamentary Labour leader from 1977 to 1981 and minister […]A

Only one winner this week. Guess who The TV3 leaders’ debate proved an old adage of mine: the national question is the only game in town. By the national question I mean all issues arising, directly or indirectly, from the IRA’s campaign.A

Started seeing these ads from Fine Gael in my Facebook feed. Seem way too personal regarding individual candidates. Also it shows the you are being deliberately targeted due to the constituencey you live in (or in my case the half that has been asked to vote Holland 1 and Crowe 2). So I find that […]A

As noted by Roddy here, the latest poll is out. RTÉ puts it this way: At almost the half-way point in this General Election campaign, this opinion poll may cause surprise in Fine Gael. Excluding the 12% of undecided voters the party is down two points to 28%. Their coalition partners, Labour, is unchanged on […]A

Interesting piece this on Slate about the way ?guys? is become gender neutral.

Mitchell was a most fascinating individual, as Plait notes: Mitchell will also be known for some of his more unconventional beliefs. For example, he was a vocal advocate in the UFO community.
