A snippet in the Phoenix suggests that it was Seán Canney’s former comrades in the Independent Alliance who were instrumental in pushing him forward as junior Minister again. Indeed it mentions in passing that Canney and his friend, turned rival, ‘Boxer’ Moran, are on good personal terms again, this predating Canney’s remarkable re-ascent (to coin […]A

There?s a rising buzz of hostility towards the BusConnect proposals, and it?s telling to me that this is manifesting itself as much on the government side as the opposition. For example, the IT reports this week that Fine Gael TDs including Varadkar and Bruton (or rather their offices) made representations about the concerns of constituents […]A

Good piece by Daniel Geary a little while back here which recalls one small but far from insignificant fact in relation to Paisley and Paisleyism and a broader point too?

Interesting, this from the PUP conference, a speech by Dr. John Kyle. There?s a lot of stuff in that I suspect many would say was quite reasonable, even if many of us would have different views on the overall dispensation. Now in fairness perhaps this is just a part of a much longer speech – […]A

Just a reminder, when looking at polls, at how they fared in 2016. Even the exit polls were a bit awry – not least and this was reflected throughout polling in the campaigns where SF?s rating was a good 1-7% out. Smaller parties had it rough. That said average out the last five or so […]A

So, Peter Casey has restarted his campaign. Last week’s little controversy clearly was but a speedbump – though his performance on Friday on the radio news was such to indicate that he had looked into the abyss and drawn back. And… Writing in the Sunday Independent, Mr Casey said that he took the decision to […]A
