From earlier today, I’m sure many have seen it, but some may not have and Faisal Islam’s point at the end is spot on.A

Well now, didn’t expect that. But Gerry Moriarty reporting on the fall out from the Brexit notes that nothing in relation to the North is as it was. Indeed: Prominent figures, including veteran US diplomat Richard Haass, agree: ?In five years there will no longer be a UK. Scotland will be independent and part of […]A

NollaigO sends these thoughts: Have you seen the IPR line on Brexit? 1. UK has been a long disruptive member of this once glorious project (albeit one which has degenerated over recent years) 2. Therefore the UK deserves to be expelled. 3. The referendum has been an act of self-expulsion. 4. (Read the July IPR) […]A

On EamonnCorks recommendation I?m reading Send ?Em Home Sweating, The Show band?s Story by Vincent Power. Written in 1990 it?s a remarkably evocative book which outlines the rise and fall of that oddly likeable phenomenon. What I hadn?t realised before reading it was how relatively short the Showbands period was. Late 1950s at a stretch, […]A

And here are some of the details on that from wiki, including polling on the issue [which can be seen here]. A chance, just a chance, to break the stalemate and deliver a left of centre government? We’ll see. Any thoughts?A

Kudos to the commentator here who predicted that the result of the UK referendum would be an appeal for a unity government in the Republic. The Sindo editorial comes close enough In that regard, and to use that much abused term, now really is a time to put on the green jersey. The tentative new administration […]A

Started looking at some of the UK Election leaflets that I have to see if I could find many examples of Anti European discourse (outside of UKIP etc). Sadly it was a simple enough task. The whole narrative of Europe being bad being echoed not just by The Daily Mail and other publications but in […]A

Seeing as there was mention of the none more 1980s Iron Lady, any suggestions as to other films, tv or books on that period in time in Britain that people would recommend? A couple spring to mind but I’m interested in suggestions of the beaten track…A

Well, that was an odd one. Finally got to see the Iron Lady – Thatcher biopic, with Meryl Streep playing Thatcher. First up enormous kudos to Streep for capturing her subject so efficiently. Most who lived through the period will, I think, agree that it was a superb performance, and way beyond an emulation. That […]A

Here?s a piece on the Soviet shuttle Buran, which distinguished itself on its single flight into orbit by being unmanned and automatically controlled throughout. This was a feature that if I recall correctly wasn’t added to the US Shuttle until the 1990s. The piece above suggests that in many respects Buran was a better shuttle. […]A
