Title: On Ireland’s financial sovereignty and our “Gallant Allies in Europe”
The 1916 Proclamation declared the establishment in arms of the Republic by the Irish Volunteers with the support of Ireland’s “exiled children in America and by gallant allies in Europe”. For Connolly, Casement and others, the world war had been engineered to destroy the threat to the British Empire represented by a new Europe with “German Socialism” at its core. Ireland’s future would be secured through a close alignment with Europe.
The world financial crisis since 2008 has again forced the hand of Europe, and required it to develop along a new path by consolidating the Eurozone outside the structures of the increasingly marginalised and atrophied “European Union”. The moment of truth came in November 2011 when Britain ensured that monetary consolidation could not occur through the EU structure.

Title: Parliamentary Democracy and the Working Class
The UK is a parliamentary democracy. Two parties organised around different dominant interest groups within the state contend for and alternate in power. The Liberal Democrats do not fundamentally alter this feature of the British state. In theory such a system ought to give a voice to interest groups whose interests do not coincide and who seek to reach an accommodation with each other on how the State conducts itself. In the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries one party coalesced around the aristocracy (the Whigs), while another coalesced around the Crown (the Tories). In order to broaden their power base the Tories would seek alliances with the unenfranchised peasantry and would, to a degree, further those interests against those of the aristocracy.

Title: Euro Crisis: Politics of Recovery Vs. Politics of Illusion
There are certain immutable economic laws that cannot be wished away by fine words or good intentions. If a country continues to consume more than it produces, it will develop a dependent relationship with its creditors. To reduce its dependency it will either have to produce more or consume less.

If the creditor is benevolent the debtor might obtain some concessions. But that is not a very dignified position for a debtor country to be in. Since 2008 Ireland has made a decent attempt at solving her economic crisis and has been hoping for concessions on the basis of what may arise elsewhere. But it appears the Euro summit agreement of 29th June on separation of bank debt from sovereign debt is far less than it was widely taken to be. The prescription for the Spanish financial crisis is looking remarkably like the one for the Irish crisis. Ultimately the State must pay...

Title: "Shaken, Not Stirred" ?
"Who am I to say whether Martin McGuinness was or wasn't an agent?" That is the unexpectedly modest question asked of himself by the English groupie of Belfast Republicanism in the early 1970s, who went on to join the Irish Independent's stable of anti-Irish columnists—Kevin Myers (26th June). If he was her agent, then the Queen does right by shaking the hand of "one of her truly heroic servants". And should not Myers himself also seek the honour of a handshake with this man, whom he has denounced so roundly (and ineffectually) for so long, not knowing that he was a colleague?

But what if he wasn't an agent? Then the Queen's handshake 'serves to endorse Sfira's toxic mythology" and that "will be a very bad day's work indeed". And perhaps it makes the Queen an agent of "Sfira"!

And why not? These twisted dabblers in Republicanism who have mended their ways dare not look analytically at the perverse British governing arrangements for the Six Counties, which generated the Provo movement and gave it its power. They are therefore driven to explain the Provo movement as a kind of evil...

Title: Plumbing The Depths
Fianna Fail has been described as one of the pillars of the state. But the leadership of that party, with the partial exception of Eamon O Cuiv, has lost all sense of itself and its past. The following is a transcript of an extensive interview, which Pat Kenny conducted with Fianna Fail leader Michael Martin on 30th April 2012...
