How curious that both UKIP and the FN (and despite their election result in Germany being all too good, the AfD too) are running into choppy waters. UKIP looks like it is about to tear itself apart in a contest between far right and further right as its relevance declines ever further (a genuine case […]A

It?s difficult to quite understand from this remove the appeal for those in the former East Germany constituencies who voted for the AfD in such numbers that in some places it came in second in the election. As the Guardian notes: The AfD is by no means only a party of the ?left-behinds? and its […]A

The Irish Times reports today that The Government wants to hold eight referendums over the next two years, including one on abortion next year. The Eight are….. The 8th Amendment To remove blasphemy as an offence Change the reference to women?s place in the home Directly elected mayors Giving Oireachtas committees more powers Referendum to […]A

Ray Bassett has a piece in the SBP that seems almost bizarrely at odds with the reality of the Brexit process in the UK. In his analysis of Theresa May?s speech in Florence he appears to take it at face value – ?upbeat? ?on almost every issue the line she took was hugely in Ireland?s […]A

…reading this this morning… Independent Alliance deputy [and former Junior Minister] Seán Canney has confirmed he will vote against the drink-driving Bill sponsored by the group?s leader, Minister for Transport Shane Ross. The Bill proposes a mandatory driving ban for all motorists caught over the alcohol limit. And: The stance of the Galway East deputy […]A

In some ways the departure of AfD leadership member Frauke Petry is only curious in so far that it didn?t happen earlier. A good piece in the Guardian by Cas Mudde notes that such parties are wracked with splits with ?moderates? and/or conservatives tending to do a runner sooner or later from ?radical right? parties. […]A

? Reading this very measured overview of the debate around sectarianism in the War of Independence and after in this state by Gemma Clark, lecturer in British and Irish history at the University of Exeter,Sec the question arises again, what is the purpose of those who attempt to portray those processes and events as sectarian […]A

Reading the excellent Bombs, Bullets and the Border by Patrick Mulroe (or which more soon and which, full disclosure, references one comment on this very site) I was struck by one section in particular which had a very contemporary resonance. Discussing the emergence of the Heavy Gang it pointed to divisions within the Gardaí about […]A

From the Daily Mail/Ireland Thinks… It shows Fine Gael on 32%, up one point since the last comparable Irish Daily Mail/Ireland Thinks poll in June. There is a three point rise in support for Fianna Fáil which stands at 29%. Sinn Féin are down two points with support for the party measured at 14%, Labour […]A
