A few things that caught my eye about the place. The things. Not my eye:
Right wing historian Niall Ferguson paints a troubling but all too plausible picture of the world in ten years time in a video on The Daily Telegraph website here.
Michael McLoughlin relaunches his excellent Foreignpolicy.ie as a blog here.
The dark and mysterious shadow war that is the Seanad elections is throwing up some interesting candidates, including that thoughtful blogger Dan Sullivan, who is running on the NUI panel. You can read his platform here. As a fellow beardist, I do like his direct pitch for the Charles Stewart Parnell vote.
Australian electoral expert (Their version of Peter Snow or Sean Donnelly) Antony Green on some of the ludicrous nonsense put forward by the No-to-AV people. Here.
