Title: Good Friday Agreement: Working Too Well.
The working out of the Good Friday Agreement is troubling some people. It is working too well.

One of these troubled people is Lord Bew of the Official IRA. He spoke on the subject to a Law Conference on the moonscape of the Burren, Co. Clare. According to the Irish Times report (May 6), he said:

"As the deal was a 'top-down, elitist' project, driven by leaders on both sides rather than reflecting a 'thrust upward' from the streets, it was expected that sectarian conflict would not disappear."

Title: The Ruins Of Croke Park
In our last issue we wrote of the drift towards a rejection by Trade Union members of Croke Park II, the proposed deal for curbing the public sector pay bill:

"Union ballots have now to follow and there is a strong force pulling members of the sectional Unions towards rejection. But, as the IMPACT National Executive decision and the stance of the SIPTU leadership have shown, this is not the political mood in the broader Trade Union movement, and it is on the politics of it rather than, to paraphrase Keynes, "the animal spirits of labour", that many Union members will vote" (Promissory Notes, Croke Park and the Euro, Irish Political Review editorial, March 2013).


And so it was to be. The politics of it changed in the two weeks up to the announcement of the results of the SIPTU ballot...

Title: Pope Francis I and the Scandal of Jesuit Power
Jorge Mario Bergoglio is a Jesuit from the Vice-royalty of the Rio de la Plata which is the name by which Argentina was known before it secured independence from the Spanish Empire in the early 19th century.

It is impossible to predict what the new Pope will turn out to be. But the story of the Jesuits in South America turns history itself upside down and flies in the face of reality as we have come to know and understand it. The role of the Jesuits is a scandal, an affront against the consensus on which present day social reality is based. An affront against reason, in other words. Which is why it is practically written out of history.

Title: Cyprus: Euro-Imperialism or Rescue?
The Anglo-American financial press has been at full throttle in portraying the Cypriot banking crisis and the attempts to resolve it as the bludgeoning by Euro bullies of a gallant little island country, intent on destroying its "banking model". Cypriot anti-Imperialist traditions have been invoked. An article in the Financial Times appealed to distant historic parallels, calling for an alliance of Britain and Russia in defence of Cyprus against the European "bullyboys". (It didn't however go so far as to propose they come up with the 17bn required). The Daily Telegraph (22 March) spelt out the message in more populist terms: "Southern Europe lies prostrate before the German imperium"...

Title: Promissory Notes, Croke Park and the Euro
The brief moment of rule by bankers in Europe has passed. As the Goldman Sachs technocratic 'leaders' propelled into power by the financial crisis gradually leave the stage, the political revolution initiated by the Fiscal Compact in December 2011 continues to take its course. The consequences of the British veto and the decisive move by Europe to re-arrange itself as an inter-Governmental affair outside or alongside the structures of the EU are coming home to roost. The political deal on Ireland's Promissory Note is a further decisive step in this process...
