Title: Historic Destinies
Some Fine Gael TDs who voted for abortion complain that they are being denied Communion in the Catholic Church, and their complaints are treated by the Sunday Independent as having legitimate grounds. But it is well-known that the Catholic Church regards abortion as a form of murder. So we cannot see what their legitimate ground for complaint is.

Title: British Vote on Syria
August 29th was a day of infamy. Britain refused an opportunity for doing good in the world by making war. The Government wanted to make war on Syria. It was constitutionally entitled to do so without consulting Parliament. Britain remains an absolute monarchy in this respect, with the Prime Minister exercising the power of the Monarch. But the Prime Minister, in breach of precedent, referred the decision to Parliament, and Parliament, to its disgrace, refused to commit the state to war.

Title: Egypt: Hardly A Coup ?
Egypt had undemocratic liberal government for almost a century and a half, with a short interlude in the middle of that period. For about seventy years it was undemocratically governed by Britain. Then, following an interlude of a kind of national democracy, it had a couple of generations of military dictatorship supported and paid for by the West, mainly the United States.

Britain invented political Egypt of modern times. It cut it out of the Ottoman State in the 1880, recognised it as an independent country around 1920 but continued governing it until the early 1950s. Egypt was in Constitutional fiction an independent country. In Constitutional fact it was under British government. The fiction was maintained by having a puppet Government which acted on the advice of the British Ambassador. It was the diplomatic adviser who had the guns.

Title: Obituary:— Ruairi O Bradaigh
Ruairi O Bradaigh kept Anti-Treaty Republicanism alive within mainstream political opinion in the 26 Counties for forty years after a majority at the Sinn Fein Ard Fheis of January 1970 voted to dissolve it. He kept it alive by being a public figure who gave it a voice that was heard.

The Sinn Fein majority at that Ard Fheis, Official Sinn Fein, went on to become part of the 26 County Establishment. It fought a war in the North for a couple of years in a medium of ideological fantasy, it robbed banks in the South, it killed its dissidents and threatened others, and it became an agency of the Kremlin in Catholic Ireland, but everything was forgiven it because of its lethal enmity towards the Provos—that enmity at lest did its best to be lethal. It is now in government in Dublin as the Labour Party...
