I quite like Fred Kaplan’s posts on This one on the uselessness of the address to the UN General Assembly during the week is an entertaining deconstruction of a President, who as Kaplan says, can’t even be pushed to pretend he cares (and he didn’t even have to appear in person, it was all […]A

Sorry to hear of the death of Ron Cobb, radical political cartoonist, illustrator and production designer, at 83, this week. He was a remarkable production designer whose work informed much of the aesthetic of the 1980s and after through films such as Dark Star, Star Wars, CE3K, Alien and so on. This piece in the […]A

I was reading recently how Dee Snider had spoken out against anti mask protests using the Twisted Sister song “We’re Not Gonna Take It” as part of their protests. He was quoted as saying …. ?No?these selfish a?holes do not have my permission or blessing to use my song for their moronic cause. #cuttheshit,?  I […]A

Always entertaining when one is faced by those who appear to believe Donald Trump is a great manager – cast a sceptical eye over his track record with staff and public appointees of one sort or another and contemplate whether in a commercial enterprise the sheer churn would lead to anything other than chaos. Indeed […]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

From the Independent last week: A senior Cabinet member defended the delay in reacting to the advice [to impose restrictions] by noting that the rise in cases has yet to lead to a significant increase in hospitalisations or deaths. “Yes, there is an increase but bear in mind during an average flu season there are […]A

One of the most interesting tropes to emerge recently is the idea that the young are immune from the effects of Covid-19. The Atlantic notes how this has gained momentum in recent days since the Trump White House has gained an advisor who is pushing that line very hard. ?It doesn?t matter if younger, healthier […]A

John Crown of St. Vincent’s Hospital, and former Senator, had a piece in the SBP at the weekend. He makes some solid points in it too. Arguing that in relation to the pandemic: Scientists and doctors need to be able to say, ?sorry, we were wrong before, we?ve changed our position in response to new […]A

IEL had a very interesting point here in comments about the FF leadership, where he noted that the only place that FF could train its guns was SF and some of the smaller parties, whereas they were locked into government with the old enemy and unable to lay a hand on them. So small wonder […]A

Yesterday’s star witness at the Dáil Committee changed his analysis… from arguing for a ‘controlled spread’ of the virus in Ireland in the morning, by late afternoon he declared: ?I?m not prescribing anything for Ireland,? [Dr Johan Giesecke] told Drivetime on RTÉ Radio One. ?You have to make your own decisions. That?s not up to […]A
