WorldbyStorm - 12:19 Thu May 24, 2018
This was sent to me, a link to a piece on Jacobin by Thomas Fazi and William Mitchell entitled Why the Left Should Embrace Brexit. It?s all sunny uplands but at no point does it engage with any of the basic aspects of the situation. There?s not one mention of Ireland, of the Border, of […]A

In the past week, Donald Trump has abandoned what was left of the ?economic nationalism? that drove his presidential campaign. On Wednesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters there may not be an infrastructure bill before the end of the year, which likely spells the end for Trump?s promise to revitalize the […]A

Gewerkschaftler suggested this recently: I suggest this blog should have a regular (weekly) slot where people can post happenings at the personal or political level that gives them hope that we?re perhaps not going to hell in a handbasket as quickly as we thought. Or as the phlegmatic Germans put it ?hope dies last?. Any […]A

This is a fascinating piece – a submission to the Citizens Assembly from an anti-abortion speaker. Dr. Dónal O?Mathúna, Associate Professor of Ethics at Dublin City University offers his views on the matters at hand. What I find particularly notable is the way in which everything is framed in soft language but at every point […]A

Check this out. An account of 45 minute Skype session with a leading thinker of our time. Who could it be who charges such sessions for a mere $200. Why it’s Jordan Peterson! Those of us who find his thoughts as expressed in his books?er?a bit limp, will not see much to change them reading […]A

The point was made on the Slate Political Gabfest that Trump almost never apologises, this in relation to the comment by one of his staffers in relation to John McCain – that he seems utterly unable to say sorry, except very very infrequently. Though, as the point was also made, the business milieu he came […]A

Excellent overview of the machinations in the UK cabinet over Brexit – Joe pointed to it in comments. Is May, still there, still hanging on, perhaps more astute than we tend to give her credit? Well, whatever else, she?s certainly a survivor. And she?s backed the Brexit proponents into something of a corner: The significance […]A
WorldbyStorm - 07:56 Wed May 23, 2018
Here’s a neat demonstration of the differing weights that the EU and UK bring to the table in a Brexit world. The EU has leapt ahead of the UK in the pursuit of free trade deals with Australia and New Zealand after member states gave the green light for talks to start within weeks. With […]A

I wonder is this being too clever for their own good, the news that: [the] RTE tv debate on the forthcoming referendum on the Eighth Amendment has been thrown into chaos as the representative from Save the Eighth has pulled out at the last minute. Cora Sherlock, the representative for the No campaign, pulled out […]A
