A fascinating range of letters in the Irish Times about the Home Rule/1916 Rising issue from the last week or so?you’ll find some here, here and here. What comes through loud and clear is that the events of the 1960s and onwards are central to many of those who are most attached to the Home […]A

Interesting irony in the SBP editorial at the weekend and a piece in the main body of the paper. The editorial takes those who voted for the cuts in the LPT to task under the heading ?Unfunded tax cuts are mere posturing?, asking ?how actually to pay for that? Well, that?s someone else?s problem.? Actually, […]A

I heard a great phrase on an Australian politics podcast recently where someone said ?had we reached peak unravelling for this government??. I wonder have we seen that with our own government?

A most telling piece in the SBP this weekend about the Irish Fiscal Advisory Council and how its chair, John McHale has suggested that ?If I found I wasn?t having an effect, I would consider my position.? The SBP itself notes that in the four years since the establishment of IFAC its recommendation has been […]A

As mentioned earlier in the week, there?s a profile in the Phoenix of Paul Murphy. But as I saw that advertised on the front cover when I purchased it I realised that it would more than likely be an overview of the SP. And imagine my lack of surprise when on reading the piece it […]A

Check this out: Mr Quinlan [the director] added: ?You tell me one party out there who doesn?t look after their own. […]A

As posted here previously, there’s a timeline of Irish Left organisations taking shape on the Irish Left Archive site. Thanks to everyone who commented with additions and corrections, and in particular to John Goodwillie, on whose work in Gralton the initial timeline was based, and who also provided a number of corrections. Since it was […]A

I?m not much of a fan of the BLP, though there are good people in it, and many years ago I was a member of it for a couple of years. But when it comes to the Tories I?m happy to read the following: Labour is heading for a ?comfortable majority? at the UK general […]A
