Jean-Luc Mélenchon of the Front de Gauche is now the third candidate in the French Presidential election, at 16% he is level with La Pen but his trajectory is upward. His standing is sending shivers up the spines of the French Bourgeoisie, fearful of what concessions Edwin will wring from Hollande for support in the second round of voting. Here are two articles regarding his candidacy. Full texts at links. read full story / add a comment

Yassamine Mather writes on the latest rather odd elections in Iran: how would you like it if all candidates for the Dail had to be approved by the Catholic Church? In these elections which were confined to conservatives, Khamenis faction won 75% of the seats leaving Ahmadinejad isolated. What does this mean for the people of iran? Yassamine says: For now, the supreme leader has got his way. Craven ‘reformists’ will not stop him; and imperialist sanctions, sabotage and war will only make things worse. Only the Iranian masses can put an end to this blood-soaked regime. Full text at link. read full story / add a comment
The idea that calling for a referendum is a good strategy for winning significant reforms often crops up in campaigns. It seems logical, as a referendum is a chance for the population to directly make a decision on the issue to hand. But the reality is that the demand for a referendum is seldom, if ever, the best way to build a struggle for a reform. Here are five reasons why: read full story / add a comment

Eoghan Harris tried to run the 1997 election through Derek Nally, former head of the Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors. He tried to destroy the Mary McAleese campaign by using Nally. That is where Harris's description of McAleese as a 'Tribal Time Bomb' came from. The bomb blew up in Harris's face when Nally found out. He ditched Harris and his political playmate, John Cadden, when he found out that he was a patsy. Nally was an unusual policeman who challenged the Garda 'Heavy Gang' in the 1970s.
The info is here:
Today, Harris wants to run the election through Gay Mitchell, see:

Two successive days of entertaining radio as the motley crew opposing Martin McGuinness (Michael McDowell, Fintan O'Toole, Ed Moloney, Gregory Campbell, etc) get their act together.
Fintan and Ed have difficulty debating. On Tuesday (Sept 20) on the Pat Kenny Show, Ed Maloney refused to appear with Danny Morrison. That was after imposing the same conditions on the BBC. A very important fellow is Ed, who likes to be able to chose who is good enough to appear alongside his elevated self.
An even more important person is Fintan O'Toole, who, after a long innings on Radio Ulster's Stephen Nolan Show (September 21), took up his ball and ran. He was unable to persuade the great unwashed) to be quiet while the great one droned on uninterrupted.
