Can?t see this working – an interesting report on RTÉ on how they do things on the border between Norway and Sweden. There?s kind of installations. There?s restrictions. There?s some checks. And all this, mind, with Norway in the single market – which as the report notes isn?t going to be the case with 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

I mentioned Stephen Collins warm words about Varadkar. But what of this, from the same piece? In Ireland some of the most negative voices, at least on the airwaves, come from representatives of the various public-sector groups who have secure jobs and pensions, while the voices of the majority of workers who don?t have these […]A

So, a poll. From the IT no less. And in it the figures are: FG 30% (+2), FF 27% (-2), LP 5% (+1), SF 20% (-1), IND/OTHER 18% (NC). In that latter GP 2%, SOLIDARITY – PBP 3%, SD 1%,I4C 2%, IA 2%, OTHERS 2%, NON PARTY IND 5%. I guess it depends how you […]A

Fascinating insights here in this report from the Guardian of secret plans to ‘protect’ France should Le Pen become President. Contingency plans, of course, but nonetheless useful. L?Obs cited three anonymous sources with knowledge of the emergency plan that would have been put into effect had Le Pen reached the Elysée palace, saying it was […]A

I actually agree with a lot of what is in this column in the IT from the weekend by Jennifer O’Connell in relation to religion and education. Like many of us here, I suspect, I would seek an entirely universal secular education system. I wouldn’t be averse for those who wanted it, that schools would […]A

I had to smile at the report in the lead story in the SBP at the weekend at the complaint from Coveney supporters that: …a number of FG politicians have double-crossed the Minister for Housing by rowing back on earlier promises to endorse his campaign. And… “A lot of people who he thought were in […]A

I imagine we all agree that there?s not much between the FG candidates. But what minuscule differences there are? well reading this doesn?t give any grounds for optimism as regards the front-runner. But a broader thought is that there?s something hugely depressing about the way both of the contenders are privately educated, middle class and […]A
