Who's Next?

The decision of Nessa Childers, Labour MEP, to resign from the party over her concern regarding the direction that Labour is taking doesn't really come as any surprise. Her stance takes the number of high profile dissidents from the Labour Party to 7. To misquote Oscar Wilde, to lose one high profile member might look like carelessness but to lose seven seems like folly. The fact is that Labour appears to think that it is on the right track and despite the drubbing they got in the Meath bye-election they haven't come out and said they need to change focus. Nearly everything they have done in coalition with Fine Gael appear to be the actions of a right wing party and not steps taken by a political party that was set up to defend the interests of the working

Highs And Lows

The election of Helen McEntee to her late father's seat in the recent Meath East bye election should not have come as a surprise to anyone. Of course there were rumblings about how this was going to be a test of the government but honestly how anyone thought that she wouldn't get the seat considering that it was her father's, won at the last general election and also given the nature of his death was being seriously deluded. No doubt she will prove to be an effective T.D. in the Dail but that wasn't really what was at issue here. A significant proportion of the electorate is dissatisfied with various measures taken by the government in recent months, especially since the budget, and many made those misgivings known to canvassers. But this was an election about a person

Who'd be a Cypriot?

The talk of the financial crisis in Cyprus has dominated all the news bulletins every single day since the story broke that the government there was going to impose a levy on all savings deposits in order to come up with some money in an attempt to alleviate the looming economic meltdown. Understandably a lot of the Cypriot people took to the streets to show their anger that the government would even think that such a thing was possible. In the end the government backed down and told the Troika that such an imposition would not be possible. The rest of the Eurozone, or at least its citizens breathed a sigh of relief, knowing that such a dangerous precedent had been averted.

If Cyprus had managed somehow to implement its plan then not only would Cypriots with savings

The announcement last week that Cardinal Jose Bergoglio of Buenos Aires was to be the next Pope was met with enthusiasm from many members of the Catholic Church. The first Pope from outside Europe in 1,300 years the Cardinal is also the first Pope elected from the Jesuit Order. The name he has taken, Pope Francis I was also taken as a sign that his leadership of the world's largest religion was also going to be a very definite departure and in some ways a return to the humility and basic tenets of the Church. As soon as his name was made public from the conclave journalists rushed to find out as much as possible about this man who is going to have a huge role in world affairs. On being appointed as Cardinal of Buenos Aires Bergoglio made a
