A very useful guest post from Michael Curry. (Extract from Michael Murray?s Diary of a Corbyn foot soldier, December 2019) Michael Murray: murraymicha@gmail.com; FaceBook: Michael Murray London Aditya Chakrabortty wrote recently that ?Labour?s new manifesto puts the party squarely at the cutting edge of what is now mainstream leftwing. The world is watching,? he says, […]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

Kevin?s column was, well, a bit dispiriting – to put it mildly, but where Sheridan was wordy, in fairness she?s writing a column herself […]A

Or perhaps not: We didn?t predict the referendum result. […]A

A pretty good RTÉ Your Politics edition after the by-elections hosted by Aine Lawlor (available on iTunes and in podcast form) with Aisling Kenny, Paul Cunningham and Mícheál Lehane along with Odran Flynn and one-time FF government advisor Gerard Howlin.

Thought this was interesting. There?s been a recovery in consumer sentiment – from a remarkable seven year low, in November. That low was driven by Brexit worries, rather than economic. And the recovery is similarly driven by Brexit hopes. Though it?s not a massive recovery. That [recovery] was back to the level it stood at […]A

As CL notes… the vote was passed: ?Washington?Today, the United States House of Representatives passed a resolution introduced by Congressman Tom Suozzi (D?NY-03) and Congressman Peter King (R?NY-02), which calls on the United Kingdom and European Union to protect lasting peace in Northern Ireland during Brexit negotiations. Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot L. Engel (D?NY-16) […]A
