Jason O'Mahony 1 Week, 2 Days, 4 Hours, 37 Minutes ago
So, where are we standing today? Fine Gael: continue to consolidate themselves as the dominant party of the centre-right, business, stability and the political status quo. That’s not to be disparaging, as that’s a considerable consti...

Fianna Fail Councillor James Lawless on cutting LPT. NEW
Jason O'Mahony 4 Weeks, 1 Day, 15 Hours, 31 Minutes ago
Fair play to Kildare FF Councillor James Lawless putting his position on Local Property Tax on the record. Makes some good points. There’s something bizarre about watching the hard left doing a Newt Gingrich over taxes whilst centrists are aski...

Does British democracy need another Enoch Powell? NEW
Jason O'Mahony 1 Month, 1 Week, 4 Days, 19 Hours, 39 Minutes ago
So, there’s a provocative headline, and deliberately so, but not for the reasons you’d think. There are some on the right who believe that Powell was right about immigration. I, for one, don’t, for the simple reason that immigration...
