Bowing to the inevitable, on 11 December Mladenov announced in a nationally televised speech to party leaders that the Communist Party had to give up its guaranteed right to rule. The BCP’s position in the state, he said, could no longer be “declared administratively”, but instead had to be earned “from the trust of the […]A

Hmmm? think there?s a bit of piling in going on here – a Mumsnet thread linked to on the IT that takes Dublin to task. A lot of complaints about ?rain? and it being ?dreary? and ?expensive? (though some noted that post-Brexit referendum and the weakening UK pound that was a given. For my mind […]A

She died at 80 and had a remarkable and varied career, being a trailblazer for women in writing for television. My favourite of hers on TOS […]A

This from last week during the late hours of the election really struck me: Candidates in this election received abuse or insulting remarks in 16.5% of mentions or replies about them on Twitter, a snapshot analysis has found.

Aditya Chakrabortty in the Guardian had an excellent analysis here of one cohort of leave voters who knew that Brexit wouldn?t achieve anything but felt so distanced from political activity and isolated that any sort of protest was worth making. Given the results it is difficult to disagree with them. In one of the country?s […]A

Okay, well this has been depressing, went to sleep around one, woke up at two thirty and then got back to sleep much later. I wish I could claim some foresight but I can’t, but I looked at those polls this last week and couldn’t shake the thought that a Tory majority possibly, say 18 […]A
