Newsbots

Okay, this is it folks, robot writers have taken over the newsrooms. Forget the corporate media hijack, now it's software bots who are threatening to rule the roost. AP is in the lead with this, using software to create news items and business articles. Yahoo and Fox are also in on the act, auto generating … Continue reading Newsbots

Irexit? No. A Chance To Redefine Ireland

Irexit? No. A Time To Redefine Ireland

The intelligentsia's very own Katie Hopkins has spoken; Ireland must leave the EU.  In her recent commentary, (aka mad outburst), Melanie Phillips states that it is in Ireland's best interests to do so.  On her blog/website, me me me dot com, the great oracle redirects the reader to Ray Basset's pamphlet outlining the case for another political amputation. Ray Bassett, former Irish ambassador to Canada and an avid Irish Tory, views Ireland solely through the lens of historical dependence on Britain.

Does Maybelline not know that it is defective, that metaphorically speaking there is ladder in her tights, and that something has gone 'orribly wrong? No, not her, because these mechanisms, however realistic they appear … Continue reading System Failure

Bravo Ireland!

Bravo Ireland! 

With all the election anxiety here in the UK, how refreshing to read about Ireland's newly elected prime minister.  Once considered the most conservative country in Europe, it is nothing less than a miracle that Ireland has voted in favour of inclusivity and openness. For decades, young people left Ireland's shores for a future elsewhere. … Continue reading Bravo Ireland! 

Corbyn or May? No Contest

He is being shown in photographs apparently cuddling up to the leaders of the IRA, and … Continue reading Corbyn Or May? No Contest
