Citizen of Nowhere - 22:33 Tue Jan 23, 2018
“We won – not interested”; that seems to cover both the histories of the DDR and the cold war in general. Children in Germany are (rightly) taught, in depth, and to the point of boredom about the Nazi era, but aren’t told much about the DDR. And after more than a quarter of a century, […]A

Is this reported ceasefire by PIRA splinter group Óglaigh na Éireann a surprise? Just wondering had there been talk of it coming for quite a while? An Irish News analysis quoted on Slugger argues that because it had a leadership that came from the IRA it therefore was ‘well known to intelligence agencies’ and that […]A

So, Sinn Féin has a President-Elect. Mary Lou McDonald will be the next leader of the party, to be ratified in hardly more than two or three weeks time at a Special Ard Fheis. This is a fascinating moment, but it raises questions. Does this change matters for Sinn Féin in terms of increasing its […]A

To give a sense of them consider the following: At the Fianna Fáil ardfheis last October, the party?s membership voted overwhelmingly to oppose the repeal of the Eighth Amendment.

Wow, Newton Emerson is no fan of Arlene Foster. Still, he isn?t wrong when he notes that for all the positive reporting of her speech south of the border a week or so back on Brexit, little of substance has changed. And he makes a most interesting point: Yet now she is trapped in a […]A

The German SPD, the oldest political party in Europe, has just opted for its own slow strangulation. A delegate conference voted by 56% to go into coaltion talks.

An old regular makes a reappearance on these pages…from earlier in the week: The latest Churchill film, Darkest Hour, opened last week in Irish cinemas.
