8 Oct

It is just possible as of today that by 17th/18th October at the European Council meeting, using perhaps even its well-tried mechanism of stopping the clock, an agreement on a EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement under Article 50 can be achieved and the UK leaves the EU on 31st October with Conservative, DUP, some Labour and Independent […]

Spotlight: A Secret History of the Troubles (episode 5): a dirty war with unionist political support for loyalist insurrection, security service and government support for collision (BBC One NI and BBC Four at 9pm)

8 Oct

Watching a preview of tonight’s fifth episode of Spotlight: A Secret History of the Troubles left me feeling sick in the pit of my stomach.
