Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm trying, and failing, to understand why anyone in Ireland cares what McShane thinks.

She believed in nothing; only her skepticism kept her from being an atheist. -- Jean-Paul Sartre

I don't think many do, but my beef is with editors printing this stuff while not printing my letters!

I think the older generation is still living in the past where the ruling elite in Ireland still looked to the UK for the default way to deal with every problem. They don't seem to realise younger people have moved on and don't look to the UK for much any more.

Meanwhile the Guardian has printed an editorial by Larry Elliot presenting Brexit as a glorious opportunity for the British Left.

You couldn't make it up. Except he just did - and presumably he got paid for it too.

Considering the "Well that's settled - time to move on" narrative that's being pushed by the Tories, the LibDems, Labour, and all the major papers - except for the extremists who still want No Deal - it's increasingly hard to wonder if these efforts aren't coordinated.

It is a round condemnation of the whores, morons, and combination thereof who are the news media in Anglophonia that on the one hand they can refuse to deplatform idiots like this and on the other hand they can wonder why everyone who is not demonstrably anencephalic views them as tools who are beneath contempt.
