Amid the most dramatic week in U.S. politics for years, the petty British media appear to have nothing better to do than play gotcha with Nigel Farage. What a pathetic spectacle, says Laurie Wastell.

Corruption and incompetence rule in certain corridors of Dublin City Council. Coventa the company which somehow won the tender (despite not being a party to the bidding) and Dublin City Council have pushed the cost up to nearly €100 million for the land. Council Manager Owen Keegan said not one cent of the €96 million that has already been spent will be clawed back if the plan doesn't go ahead. Despite also as extra €36 million in extra costs many Councillors state that this whole thing has nothing to do with mad ideas from Bertie Ahern. Even if it does not go ahead it will still cost €600 million, and obviously this is the best interests of every else abroad who likes to sabotage Irish planning and make a few million doing so. Renewable energy is the future but not for the old school chums of yesteryear. read full story / add a comment

With only nine session days remaining before Congress adjourns for a long election break, members of the Right to Know Right Now Coalition are reminding members of Congress that they still have enough time to pass the Freedom of Information (FOI) bill even without the prodding of Malacanang. read full story / add a comment

The notion is as absurd as it is reflective on how cravenly this Junior coalition partners will act do to stay in power.
The Greens are not the tail that wags the dog; they are the illegitimate pup which it might have been wiser - in political terms - to have put down the moment he was seen to have been overly frisky

The School for Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) at the University of London organised a conference on the Left in Palestine through it's Palestine Society from February 27th-28th. As far as I know this is the first conference covering this specific area of the Palestinian question and, thus, it had the potential to open up much needed debate on the subject. read full story / add a comment
Blundelstwon interchange, with LOR route psssing just north

For years now, we have been reading about plans for the Leinster Orbital Route (LOR) or Dublin Outer Orbital Route (DOOR). Earlier this year, the NRA published a Feasibility Report from 2007, which shows route of the LOR passing along the side of the Hill of Tara. Notably, the route goes about 1km north of the Blundelstown Interchange, between the N3 and M3 motorway. However, last week Meath County Councillors were told to freeze planning on a 2km corridor on either side of the route. So, it is possible the route will pass directly through the Blundelstown Interchange, the Hill of Tara complex and the proposed UNESCO World Heritage Site. In fact, it appears that this was the plan all along, and that the route has been chosen before the public consultation even begins. read full story / add a comment

Rory Hearne, People Before Profit Alliance Dublin South East, local resident and active campaigner with the Combined Residents Against the Incinerator speaking on the EPA decision said:

"Local residents of Ringsend, Irishtown and Sandymount are once more devasated and dissapointed by a state body's decision in relation to the incinerator. I was one of the hundred or so local residents that attended the EPA's Oral Hearing and made statements to it outlining the impact on the health of the community if the incinerator was to ahead. However just as with An Bord Pleanala the EPA has ruled in favour of an anti-community, illogical and unsustainable monster incinerator. It is a ppp and therefore will be operated to maximise profits for the private company which will result in maximising waste production rather than minimsing and reclying waste.
