For those of us who remember the 1970s all too well this special of Action comic, including the ‘banned’ issue from October 1976 has perhaps been released at precisely the wrong time. Or thinking about it perhaps it’s the opposite. What better time for a comic like this? Launched in 1976 by writer and editor […]A

The world has, I think it’s fair to say, taken a Ballardian turn this last three months. So what better music to soundtrack this than that of Joy Division (and in a way New Order) whose output and lyrical concerns always spoke to isolation (quite literally as noted by IEL last weekend) and alienation and, […]A

Quite a suite, a recalibration until Easter Sunday at least. Still allowed out for exercise but limited distance, only essential work, etc. In some ways it probably makes little difference to many’s day to day lives. But it makes a difference. For example: All non-essential health services will be postponed. And for those most vulnerable […]A

The Regional Independent Group comprising nine non-aligned TDs has emerged as the most likely target for Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael as partners in coalition. Well there’s a surprise. Some interesting votes in the Dáil yesterday too, as noted in comments. But: Fianna Fáil has 37 TDs in the 33rd Dáil, while Fine Gael has […]A

Slate.com has a piece on how traffic tailbacks… …represent an existential threat to the European Union. Amid a global pandemic, there are few Europeans to be found. Containing the coronavirus has resulted in a return to nation-level politics and closed borders inside the 26-nation Schengen Area, within which border checks are supposed to be nonexistent. […]A

You can read highlights on RTÉ here. A lot of areas covered already, the importance of retail and cleaning workers as well as health workers in this process. The need to protect all of them. Weirdly, or perhaps not, the idea that no-deal Brexit planning has been reformatted somewhat to engage with the Covid-19 crisis. […]A

I suppose this is the new crisis, as distinct from the one in the late 2000s, early 2010s.
