Wonder no more: The ideal scenario is to try to eliminate the virus by getting to the point where Ireland has had 28 days – or two incubation periods of the virus- of no new unexplained community transmissions. ?If we had that, then we could more or less do a very widespread opening up. It […]A

From the Guardian: The number of far-right prisoners convicted for terror offences in Great Britain climbed by a third last year to their highest recorded level, and accounts for more than one in six of all terrorists held in prison, according to official figures. And: The Home Office data shows that 44 ?extreme rightwing? prisoners […]A

Thanks to Shane Faherty for allowing this to be reposted. Much appreciated. Originally posted on Modern Distortions Culture, society and history, at the beginning of the month.   In keeping with the spirit of our times, on Tuesday I watched an online ?meeting? with Paul Murphy TD of RISE (formerly of the Socialist Party/ Solidarity) […]A

The psychology of the pandemic is intriguing, isn’t it? Take the last batch of CSO figures a week or so back: Some 59.9 per cent of respondents rated their compliance with Government advice on staying safe, including on social distancing, as “high” in June, down from 80.6 per cent in April. Compliance fell across all […]A

This was drawn to my attention by FW, the photograph of the stage at Mount Rushmore where President Trump gave a 4th of July speech that was received with less than whole-hearted enthusiasm. As was pointed out to me, there’s something oddly ante-bellum about the look of it. Perhaps it is the white stars on […]A

Thought this by Kenan Malik in the Observer is well judged. He writes about how: …[in the late 1960s] the Tory leader, Edward Heath, drove through the north-east of England. ?If I lived here,? he remarked to a friend, as Dominic Sandbrook recounts in his book White Heat, ?I wouldn?t vote for Harold Wilson. And […]A

Was reading a number of pieces in the media that exhibit a newfound caution about the pandemic and the reopening. Perhaps that is due to the scenes in Dublin at the weekend, perhaps due to the rising cases in a variety of places that have ‘reopened’ – one thinks of Catalonia, Australia (this from there […]A

Today’s the day. Micheál Martin faces… …his first round of questions in the Dáil today when the House resumes this afternoon. Presumably not quite the day he envisaged even a week ago given that: Later this evening, Minister for Agriculture Barry Cowen will make a statement in the Dáil outlining the circumstances around the ban […]A
