Shouting centrist things at the sky since 2008. When not talking about UK/US TV from the 1960s-80s.
Jason O’Mahony works in the Irish construction industry, has stood as a Progressive Democrat candidate (and doesn’t deny it, unlike some), and has wrestled yaks for coins in an Alaskan cannery, three statements of which two are actually true.
He’s written columns for the Irish Independent, The Times (Ireland edition), and has also written some satirical material for some magazines and newspapers you may have heard of, including a column for Dow Jones’s Marketwatch.com and The Sunday Business Post.
He’s appeared on TV a bit, infamously on RTE’s Morning Edition to explain the Superman III theory of Irish politics, and was never let on again. It’s obviously a vast conspiracy involving the Bilderberg Group, the IMF, and shape changing lizards.
During the Lisbon 2 referendum, he wrote The Spoofer’s Guide to the Lisbon Treaty, which irritated all sorts of Eurosceptics. He has been called both a fascist and a lefty. Which is nice.
Jason has been accused of being paid large sums of money to write pro-European propaganda, which outraged him, not because he wouldn’t, but because he’s still waiting for the cheque.
He has written four satirical novellas, “The Gemini Agenda”, “The Ministry of Love”, “Fulcrum” and “A Little Piece of Europe”, all available as eBooks on Amazon.
He was Irish Political Blogger of the Year in both 2013 and 2014.
