Title: The Stability Treaty Referendum: the case for a "No" vote.
There is only be one reason for a socialist to vote “Yes” in the referendum on the Stability Treaty and that is if you believe that by so doing it somehow contributes towards the underpinning of the German model of capitalism throughout Europe. There is little doubt that the social market element in the German model serves the working class far better than the Anglo-American model that has its basis in classical liberal economics. Things like worker participation in the running of companies, extensive trade union rights, superior welfare provision, job security, pensions etc. are taken for granted by the German working class while the working class which is compelled to live under the typical Anglo-American model (exemplified of course, by Britain and the United States) can only point to minimal trade union rights, non-existent or diminishing social welfare provision and falling pensions as the norm. If Ireland is viewed as the battleground of both these models then there is no question that any socialist would be compelled to vote “Yes”.

But socialists must be very clear that the scenario thus presented represents the actual situation and that we don’t end up buying a pig in a poke.

Title: Fianna Fáil: on the road to nowhere?
Micheál Martin decided to accept the findings of The Tribunal of Inquiry Into Certain Planning Matters & Payments—the Mahon Tribunal, established October 1997—within hours of its publication. A report of more than 3,000 pages which took almost 15 years and cost—according to some estimates—300 million euros must be true and exempt from criticism. That is the position that Micheál Martin has taken and therefore he has disabled himself from defending the party he leads.

Martin is entitled to his opinion, but it is a view that is not shared by the Supreme Court. It found that the Tribunal suppressed evidence that would have undermined the credibility of one of the Tribunal's star witnesses, James Gogarty. This only came to light because the person against whom the allegations had been made had the financial resources to challenge the Tribunal. The Supreme Court Judge Adrian Hardiman commented as follows…

Title: No History Or False History: The Choice
Joseph Lee, when he was Professor of History at Cork University, admitted that the specialist academic history magazine which was founded in the 1930s, Irish Historical Studies (IHS), was officially debarred from publishing material about affairs in the 20th century: "The rules of the journal excluded any reference to Irish politics after 1900" (Joseph Lee, Ireland. 1912-1985, Cambridge, 1989, p589).

That meant the history of the modern Irish state was out of bounds to it. But it also meant that the British state was very much within its remit. The state, in the era which it was allowed to concern itself with, leaving aside ancient times, was the British state. Apart from a handful of years in the 1640s (Confederation of Kilkenny) and a couple of decades under James 2nd, the state in Ireland was the English state until 1707 and the British state thereafter.

But IHS had little to say about the British state as the central force in Irish history during the centuries with which it was allowed to deal. And a magazine dedicated to Irish history which did not take the state which determined Irish affairs as its subject simply did not deal with Irish history...
