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. Egypt therefore took part as an ally of Britain in both World Wars...

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...

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.
