Useful research in the UK (headed up by Alan Milburn no less) from the Social Mobility and Child Poverty Commission which notes some fairly astounding facts about how embedded elitism is in that state: Looking at the background of more than 4,000 people filling jobs at the top of government, the civil service, the judiciary, […]A

This one from Fianna Fails Ivan Connaughton A leaflet attacking Budget 2009 from Fine Gael (could be used to attack FG now with different branding) A flyer from Fine […]A

?sorry, got to wipe the tears (of laughter) from my eyes reading this , from the UK. “A hand grenade has been thrown into David Cameron’s general election campaign after the Eurosceptic Tory MP Douglas Carswell defected to Ukip, triggering an immediate byelection.” And then I read the latest polls on this this Sure, the […]A

Useful piece by Mary Feely in the Irish Times which asks: So why, after the worst property bust in history, haven?t I seen any public-interest ads on telly warning people of the risks of buying a home, and especially the risks of borrowing money to do so? Maybe the powers-that-be assume the risks are obvious. […]A

The Progressive Democrats are a group of 5 Independent Candidates who are running in one General Election. They will be run in two constituencies of the same county. There will be 3 running in a 5 seat constituency and 2 running in the other 4 seat constituency. The website is very much “under construction” , […]A

I almost missed this provocative defence of Irish participation in World War One from Patsy McGarry earlier in the week. It?s not a new one, by any means. Belgium – Catholic Belgium no less, overrun by the Germans provides sufficient casus belli. Imagine the effect in Catholic Ireland and the gift it was to recruiting […]A

Steve White a while back drew attention here to this most interesting document from the FG linked think tank, The Collins Institute. It?s well worth a read, if only to understand contemporary efforts to reshape the political narrative in the years to come on the right of centre. So, this new Just Republic offers gems […]A
