Parallel universe this week, where Ruth Dudley Edwards is posing as a guardian of the Irish language. She has also identified another example of extreme nationalism threatening all and sundry

The minister has positively Trumplike impulses to be seen as an action man on the international stage, while at home he seems driven by a desire to impress Cork South-Central, where one of his rival TDs is Deputy Martin. If you’re trying to live down a prosperous merchant-prince background in The Rebel County while challenging a fluent Irish-speaker who leads the Republican Party, “hollow posturing” involving snuggling up to Sinn Fein and annoying unionists must seem very tempting and the hell with the welfare of the language.

An amazing couple of sentences on so many levels.

Elsewhere, there are musings on the Cruiser and the peace process and on U2 and Leo Varadakar that might be cause for amusement.
