I’m away this weekend but caught this: A Sunday Times Behaviour and Attitudes Poll suggests Fianna Fáil has overtaken Fine Gael for the first time since July 2017. It suggests Fianna Fáil is up four points to 29%, while Fine Gael drops three points to 28%. Sinn Féin increased by two points to 21% and […]A

Saw this ad in the IT during the week and thought it unrivaled for giving a sense of a certain worldview…as always any other contributions gratefully accepted… Though the stuff about the really pretty innocuous Diane Abbott mojito on a tube comes a close second…I like her twitter feed on it.A

As an example of the indifferent futility of how adherence to armed struggle near enough entirely for and of itself detaches from its broader context there’s few more pointed instances than the murder of Lyra McKee. The limits of paramilitarism are shown up yet again, though one would have thought that the history of the […]A

First off I would have thought she has a Solidarity candidate rather than SP. What looks like a half Maser Repeal Heart , Repeal on the jumper……. Looks very much like “Identity Politics” too.A

Anyone who has used any online shopping vendor will know this experience, reading online reviews and thinking they?re fake. Amazon, a site I avoid if at all possible, apparently has one of the worst problems with this – but I can?t help wondering if that?s because it is being non-too-subtly trolled. I had the experience […]A

Earlier this year I had my bicycle stolen. This was on a busy street, outside a coffee shop and where it was tied to a bicycle stand by two locks. I came back after five minutes in the supermarket beside the coffee shop to discover that the bicycle was gone and only one sheared off […]A

Here’s a Leeds group from the dawn of post-punk (that would be 1978) and don’t they sound it. Deep resonating basslines, spiky guitar lines, near disco-like percussion and to bring it all together female vocals. Add to that a strongly feminist outlook, leftwing political activism including participation in Rock Against Racism and they really have […]A

?To all CWI members. The Non Faction, Faction (NFF) last week circulated an open letter signed by a series of IEC members, (full and alternates) together with some visitors and translators who attended the IEC meeting in November 2018 together with some CWI members who were not present. In their statement the NFF rejected the […]A

This ring true with anyone? Can?t say I?ve experienced anything quite as distinct as that. But anyone here ever had a relationship with someone with views very very distinctly different to their own? How?d it work out? Are there limits to what would be acceptable? For example, one would date an avowed right wing capitalist […]A

I?m always curious about the manner in which the far right seems so inchoate in some respects. Fascism, monarchism, reaction, and so many strands. And look at UKIP, attempting in its own small way to tap into these different strands. Take one of the UKIP MEPs who remained with the party when Gerard Batten took […]A
