Stephen Collins was once more singing the old song in relation to the public sector in the Irish Times. But why bring this up – perhaps because the very next day the polls suggested that that song has lost its resonance and he himself hints in the course of the piece that that might be […]A

The messing around with the electoral college. A teenager from Washington state has become the seventh person to indicate that she will break ranks with party affiliation and become a ?faithless elector? in an attempt to prevent Donald Trump being formally enshrined as president-elect when the electoral college meets on 19 December. Levi Guerra, 19, […]A

Brian Keegan in the Tax Take column in the SBP is no fan of Capital Acquisitions Tax. No fan at all. For him it is “a heartless encroachment by the state into a family bereavement” no less. He argues that: Inheritance tax concerns are a needless source of stress of the elderly, and a heartless…etc… […]A

A victory by the LibDems over Zac Goldsmith who resigned his seat over the plans for a third runway at Heathrow and ran as an Independent. With Labour, Goldsmith and LibDems all against the Third runway it seems to have boiled down to Brexit. Hard to know if its a new dynamic of pro and […]A

The above stickers are from 1972 or 1973 when a proposal to build an Oil Refinery in Dublin Bay was put forward by the Dublin Port and Docks Board. Incidentally OSF/SFWP were very much in favour of the proposal according to this 1975 issue of The United Irishman and this issue of it too. Then […]A

CMK linked to this last week, a piece by Sam Kriss in the Atlantic on that odd and unlovable phenomenon, the Web Summit, now in voluntary exile in Lisbon. Guarded, no less, by police with automatic weapons as noted in this piece by the Atlantic. Ignore the first paragraph which is a bit overly decorative […]A

Two disturbing reports in the Observer/Guardian this weekend. The first notes that: More than 50,000 abusive and offensive tweets were sent celebrating Labour MP Jo Cox?s murder and lauding her killer, Thomas Mair, as a ?hero? or ?patriot? in the month following her death, prompting calls for the government to do more to tackle hate […]A

I don’t agree with William Keegan calling for the Brexit referendum to be overturned, though I do think that a second referendum on the terms arrived at is reasonable. But he’s not far wrong in arguing that no one in the UK has a plan for Brexit. In fairness to him he may have changed […]A

A new month, and thankfully November is behind us. So, what to look forward to for December?A

…sure, and fascinating to see FG stumbling as far away from the corpse as is humanly possible, but whose cat was it? One would never think they’d been instrumental in their introduction.A
