You might have seen the article in the Irish Times about a conference at NUI Galway, on the subject of women and leadership in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Apart from a one-paragraph nod towards Mary Robinson’s contribution, the Irish Times reported only about a plenary speech by Thomas Turner, who is a specialist […]A

I?ve always found it difficult to take John Bruton?s thoughts on Redmond and democracy seriously in the context of the far from insignificant fact that the latter was ferociously antagonistic to voting rights for women. But it is that sort of remarkable blindness as to the reality politics and power as against a rather cosmetic […]A

?and some useful indications from that latest poll. The headline figures were: FG 25% (NC), LP 7% (-4), FF 18% (-3), SF 22% (+3), Others and Independents 28% (+3).

Back Room in the SBP argues that it?s the Summer. No real dispute there, we?ve even had a touch of summery weather. But s/he goes further in arguing that it is in essence a time when politics stops: The nation is taking a well-deserved holiday from the constant bickering about who?s in trouble and who?s […]A

As someone noted in comments under this report here on the extension of the right to ask for flexible working hours in the UK, not – note – the right to have them, if even the Guardian which headlined their piece as follows ?Flexible working extended to all employees in the UK? has got it […]A
