Odd rhetoric at the rather poorly attended protest against Covid-19 in Dublin city centre a couple of weeks back where about 40 people managed to turn out. For example. Around 40 people gathered in front of the GPO holding banners which included ‘Only Slaves Wear Masks’ and ‘Government and RTÉ are the Virus’. They walked […]A

I posted a Thread on Software Testing yesterday on Twitter (Which Is what my job has been for 23 years up til last Friday!) This is the thread and also I’m going to add in some stuff at the end which I think is relevant. There should be a Product Requirements Document. This should be […]A

Good piece in the current issue of the Phoenix on how little support Micheál Martin has within his own party. At Minsterial level it’s a nightmare with just three loyal to him: …Stephen Donnelly, Norma Foley and Charlie McConalogue. And it only gets worse as one works through Junior Ministers and backbenchers: Definite Martin supporters […]A

What a telling comment from Pat Leahy during the week about the SF response to the various ‘gaffes’ the Government has made. The political establishment versus the ordinary people. The golden circle. Insiders versus outsiders. One rule for them, another for everyone else. These are the classic tropes of populism and Sinn Féin is using […]A

The news today that there were two massive errors in the calculated grades system calculations is not unpexected I can’t believe that the Software wasn’t tested properly (over 10% of the students are impacted by these errors), that the Department signed off on the Software having presumably tested it. The worst part is probably that […]A

I was thinking this weekend about an odd aspect of the narrative in the public sphere around certain issues relating to the pandemic, particularly those coming from the far-right. And it is this. In essence fascism and the far-right offer appeals to security – sometimes by pointing to others, in a scape-goating fashion, at other […]A

What to make of this in relation to moves now to reduce the number of Garda permitted to use firearms. ?The big issue was, do we know how many are carrying guns?

This episode tell the story of the Independent Fianna Fáil party founded by Neil T. Blaney after his expulsion from Fianna Fáil. It lasted from 1973 until 2006.

Anyone watch the US Presidential debate last night? I couldn’t bring myself to, in fact I don’t think in all honesty I’ve ever waited up for one. Which suggests I’ve never sat through one. It’s not just the time difference, the chaos that actually ensued was predictable enough. I’d no appetite to have to sit […]A
