This is kind of revealing, the website of the Food Safety Authority of Ireland. I went there over the humous products recall this fortnight or so. Amazing to find how many products across Lidl and Aldi have been affected by the issue. And not just Lidl, but also Iceland. And not just Iceland, but Spar. […]A

Dismal news that: “The establishment of Israeli civilian settlements is not, per se, inconsistent with international law,” Mr Pompeo told reporters at the State Department. Yet it was bleakly amusing to see in some reports the US described as an ‘honest broker’ hitherto. That’s not even close to correct. Yet even rhetorical shifts have a […]A

Entertaining to see the hot water respective FG and FF by-election candidates have found themselves in – or rather have got themselves into, this last week or so. Again, as noted last week, the simple fact candidates have gone forward with these very obviously problematic aspects to their political identity suggests a remarkable lack of […]A

Well, that was a strange one. As Joe notes in comments: Jez very concerned about potential damage to the Union in the tory Brexit deal, especially concerned about the deal treating Northern Ireland different to the rest of the UK. Strange days indeed ? But that wasn’t the strangest part. I’m a bit surprised that […]A

Interesting to read Pat Leahy on RTÉ at the weekend. In the IT he suggested that government Ministers look dubiously on that organisation, at least its news gathering aspect and consider it slanted against them. He argues: Some of this is about corporate performance. And some of it is about chafing at the intrusions of […]A

This will be of interest to many here: Much has been written about the Troubles in Northern Ireland in the 50 years since the conflict began. Dr Brian Hanley has now written The Impact of the Troubles on the Republic of Ireland, 1968-79, a rare examination of the effect the Troubles had in the south. […]A

Two letters in the Irish Times about public and private in hospitals outlined some of the territory in that particular debate, though perhaps calling it a debate is too kind. The first from TJ McKenna argues that any changes are cosmetic, and that: The current income received by public hospitals for the treatment of private […]A

Excellent Slate Politics Gabfest podcast (wow, that?s a mouthful) where they engaged with the bizarre US withdrawal from the Paris climate accord. Granted, as they noted, Paris is weak stuff from a left perspective (and by the by, is it me or has the term ?left? become much more a feature of debate and discussion […]A

The Guardian Poll of Polls wasn’t updated past the 12th last night. Haven’t had time to check it this morning, but, the Wiki page on UK polls shows three weekend polls that have the Tories opening up a further lead over Labour with 44-45% ratings as against 28-30% for the BLP. The Liberal Democrats are […]A
