It's amazing that an active politician, albeit of the right, has found himself in the privileged
position of both funding and financing a hate crime movie. The man know the laws of
his country and is an elected official thus we can all presume that the only reason that
he made it was for ego-indulgence. Lots of politicos do that- its called abuse of office.

How far we have come from being privileged to study the word and poetry of Islam?
Sufism provided many international writers with an area of study and cross-cultural
pollination that has benefited Western art and literature in the poetry of Hughes and
the writing of Lessing , to name two. Westergaard got an injunction to have his
image removed- it was opposed to fanaticism, not Islam.

Below is a letter that I recently sent to about 120 newspapers. A small number have got back to me to say they are featurising the story. Others are publishing it as a letter. The Sunday Business Post got in contact to see if it was sent to anyone else (I haven't heard from them since I said it was; my personal thought it that if it's not their scoop, they're not interested). It has also been sent to Tesco (without a reply, yet!).

Feel free to copy/distribute/send to Tesco. read full story / add a comment

Concern is also growing that, after Northern Rock and Bear Stearns, another bank casualty is looming on this side of the Atlantic. Many are now focusing on Irish banks, which have lent aggressively during the property boom. Irish Nationwide, which was recently given a 'C' rating from Moody's - not a ringing endorsement - is at the centre of rumours. The bank, with assets of €16bn, had a reputation for offering 100 per cent loans on property, and took equity stakes in many deals. read full story / add a comment

The Irish language name for Smithfield Square in Dublin is Margadh na Feirme, which reflects the fact that the area has been a market for a very long time. Cattle were once driven in from Meath and sold on the square, as well as poultry and other livestock. Horses have always been traded here.
