Gewerkschaftler suggested this recently:

I suggest this blog should have a regular (weekly) slot where people can post happenings at the personal or political level that gives them hope that we’re perhaps not going to hell in a handbasket as quickly as we thought. Or as the phlegmatic Germans put it “hope dies last”.

Any contributions this week?

I see in the IT that Sanjay Gupta is anticipating with what comes across as a sense of fear the real possibility of a recession and (the real sign of hope)the actual possibility of a revitalised ‘populist left’ (his term). For once I think he might be correct. Perhaps we should be discussing the possibilities. As the man put it, ‘What is to be done?’

I’m sure that the Irish media will be lecturing is, as with the Great Recession, that ‘now is not the time’ etc. How to get around this propaganda?

Do not mess with German leftist women:

(How many people are aware that the Irish Naval Service quietly stopped rescuing people in the Med?)

I’m a bit late with this, bit I made a few visits to the Fleadh in Drogheda last week. Wonderful buzz. Great craic. Something in the ball park of 500,00 visitors over the 10 days makes it by far the biggest music festival of the year in Ireland, and yet you can visit with just a few euro in your pocket and really enjoy it.

And all this happens outside conventional politics.

“A small South Kerry primary school has made history by becoming the first to transfer from Catholic to multi-denominational patronage.

Scoil an Ghleanna, which has fourteen pupils, will reopen on Thursday as a state-run Community National School.”
