Here’s a depressing little tale in the Observer business section this last weekend which notes that: The sleek intercity train connecting Amsterdam to Rotterdam zips between the two cities in just 40 minutes and, with a walk-up price of just ?15.40 (£13.50), puts our fares to shame. The Dutch railways are still nationally owned, operated […]A

From Dan Roberts in the Guardian, though as so much of the media commentary tends to do he focuses on customs union as a ‘solution’ for the post-Brexit border. That it would require single market membership to ensure that the border remains seamless is a truth that still appears to evade so many who discuss […]A

Is the thought that comes to mind reading this about David Davis, Britain’s Brexit Secretary who, how long is it into the process – getting on for two years, finally moved himself to come visiting the border. Good to see him accompanied by Peter Sheridan, formerly of the PSNI, more recently of Cooperation North, who […]A

I don’t know if it’ll get much attention in the Irish media, but the Council of Europe published a report (219-page PDF here) last night on an investigation into corruption allegations. The investigators were three judges, including the former president of the European Court of Human Rights. The allegations were that members of PACE, the […]A

One of the more irritating aspects of Irish politics – in this state at least, is that generated by having two largish centre/right, right of centre parties vying for much the same political space. This manifests in numerous ways, but perhaps an example of one of the worst is evident in the following: Fianna Fáil […]A

I wonder about this. Sleeping ?modules? to be used on some large aircraft? Inside, these modules look like a cross between an old fashioned sleeper train and an upscale, minimalist hostel.
