Kind of find this well worth a look. It certainly shoots down the idea that Muslims are a particularly heterogenous lot. Attitudes to Sharia alone are very varied – and perhaps predictably in certain more authoritarian states there?s much greater adherence to them whereas – say – take Turkey, there?s only a minority in favour.

David McWilliams in the SBP this weekend had some comparative statistics in relation to North and South which led him to suggest that ‘the Union has been an economic disaster for all the people of Northern Ireland…. they’ve all ben impoverished by it and this shows no sign of letting up’. Granted one suspects that […]A

A most thought-provoking point made on Slate in this examination of US based couple who attempt to live their lives as if it were the late 19th century. If your sense is that that seems like an over-extended variant of cosplay you might be right. The author Rebecca Onion, I suspect would agree. The question […]A

Eoin Broin notes in the SBP in regard to the Housing Action Plan that yet again there’s an over reliance on the private sector. Quite some over reliance too. One of the most iniquitous aspects is the construction, as he points out, of 10,000 supposedly social units that will actually be private and leased […]A

Great takedown in the Observer earlier in the Summer of the above, where Philip Inman notes that this is ?the new injustice inflicted on the working class?. What?s interesting is that Inman notes that: Globalisation is to some extent at fault, though not necessarily in the way we previously thought. A recent study of US […]A

Here?s a question, does anyone know what the effect of name changes of political parties is on membership? My sense is that it is generally negative. But what of the shift from Sinn Fin The Workers? Party to The Workers? Party, did that lose them members – or gain them? And what of the shift […]A

Those public sector workers are creaming it, unlike the private sector workers, right? The key results of the report suggest that earnings of employees in the study fell during the 2008 to 2010 period with the exception of the bottom quartile (Q1) where earnings remained almost constant. The period 2010 to 2013 was characterised by […]A

Gewerkschaftler suggested this recently: I suggest this blog should have a regular (weekly) slot where people can post happenings at the personal or political level that gives them hope that we?re perhaps not going to hell in a handbasket as quickly as we thought. Or as the phlegmatic Germans put it ?hope dies last?. Any […]A
