Got to admire this particular sentence from the Guardian about the news that Mike Reid wants his pro-UKIP song withdrawn? Read said he was sorry for ?unintentionally causing offence? with the tune sung in a fake Caribbean accent, featuring lyrics about ?open borders? and ?illegal immigrants in every town?.A

?no end of fun and games this afternoon as the Technical Group took umbrage at the Ceann Comhairle?s insistence that two refugee?s – that would be Creighton and Mathews – from the Reform Alliance (or perhaps not) should be given speaking time by the TG. That his insistence that they be allowed to join the […]A

A fascinating insight into the thinking of the government is offered by Pat Rabbitte in his weekly column in the SBP. Noting that on the campaign trail in the constituency that dare not be named he was interrogated by people about the Irish Fiscal Advisory Council he notes that one very good question was put […]A

As always, following on Dr. X?s suggestion, it?s all yours, ?announcements, general discussion, whatever you choose?, feel free.A

It has to be said that the testimony of Maíria Cahill is extremely compelling. The specific issue is grim in the extreme, its implications for broader processes difficult to ascertain. The question does arise as to where this can go? It?s difficult to see a legal route forward. But that doesn’t predicate against other processes […]A

Some may have been surprised reading some thoughts on the Budget to hear the oft repeated line that the income tax system here is uniquely progressive. Stephen Collins, for it is he, in his ?Inside Politics? column was very critical of the opposition response to the Budget. Not entirely, but:, Fianna F?il finance spokesman Michael […]A

Pat Leahy and Michael Brennan, again in a long piece on the Budget in the SBP, note one basic point – for all the talk about the ?end of austerity? (a nonsense given that expenditure cuts aren?t being made up) and a ?give-away? budget, there?s this: The picture wasn?t all rosy. Even before the budget […]A

Pat Leahy and Michael Brennan, again writing in the SBP have the following provocative little suggestion: The truth is that Fianna Fáil and Sinn Féin were horrified by the budget – just as Fine Gael and Labour used to be horrified by the Fianna Fáil giveaway budgets of the Showtime era. And this as well… […]A

…this colour piece here by from the Irish Times really captures the tone of some of Leader’s Questions in the Dáil over the last week or two between Joan Burton and others, including Mary Lou McDonald. I think this last in relation to some of the back and forth over the water charges is spot […]A

I?m no great fan of José Manuel Barroso to put it mildly, but he has a point here when he : …dismissed possible Conservative plans to impose a cap on EU migrants as an ?airy fairy? proposal that would never be accepted. Britain signed up to agreement after agreement in relation to the free movement […]A
