Boris is the most gifted politician of his generation and less than three years ago won an 80-seat majority. Why didn't Hal become Henry V?

In crisis, we chose to invert our public health paradigm by requiring the young to sacrifice their own health and wellbeing to safeguard that of adults. In doing so, we shattered our implicit social contract.

The new Bill of Rights is a disappointment. It won't rein in the judges, just empower British ones at the expense of European ones. It does little about the undermining of parliamentary sovereignty by the lawyerly caste.

The attack on RTS showed the brutality of the armed wing of the ruling class-the gardai. What is happening now is the ruling class trying to alter the damage done to its image and legitimacy.

in the response to the question about timing

'we didn't ask for a press conference... we didn't seek a press conference as you seem to call it ... all we're doing is getting on with it'

I received this from the Garda complaints board earlier the same day

June 2002
Re: Press Conference- Garda Síochána Complaints Board
Dear Mr. Moore
Further to our recent telephone conversation, I wish to confirm details in relation to the above press conference which will be held this afternoon (Wednesday) here in the offices of the Board at 3.30 pm.
The press conference will be given by the Chairman of the Board, Mr. Gordon Holmes and will deal with the Board’s arrangements to investigate the complaints it has received arising from the “Reclaim the Streets” march in Dublin on 6 May 2002.
The venue is 3rd Floor, Block 1, Irish Life Centre, Lower Abbey Street, Dublin 1.
Yours sincerely

It seems it's a press conference until people start asking questions - then it's an announcement.

some people dont have the facilities, esp in college to download audio. It would be useful to provide a 'best of' list of quotes from the conference, or a back up news report

Would it be possible to get some of this up on the main page? It's beginning to look decidedly stale.
