Top 5 reasons why X-Factor is better than the presidential election
ireland / britain | culture | opinion / analysis Freitag Oktober 28, 2011 00:58 by Fin O Duibhir - WSM
A light-hearted look at today's Irish presidential election comparing it, unfavourably, to a reality TV programme popular in Ireland and Britain where viewers phone in to vote for their favourite entertainers.
Today Irish citizens go to the polls. Some are complaining that the election has been reduced to a glorified X-Factor. We disagree, X-Factor is clearly better and here is why. People will vote in two referendums which threaten to change a lot and to select between 7 chancers for President who have between them offered much drama and little substance over the last weeks.

New Labour's plans to teach kids "traditional" values Mai 18 0 comments
You can always tell when a government is on its last legs: it starts going on about "traditional values." It makes sense though. A regime which has lost the respect of the people will complain that people no longer respect "traditional values" (i.e. authority). To suggest that there are uniform values for the 60 million inhabitants of a nation as diverse as Britain is as ridiculous as implying that these values set us apart from other people and nations
A review of the Peter Lennon Film - Rocky Road to Dublin Nov 03 0 comments
'The Rocky Road to Dublin' was released in 1968 but because of its content never got significant release in Ireland. It has been restored and is showing at the IFI (an 'art cinema' in Dublin. This is a personal opinion of how shocking the picture of 1960's Dublin society it portrays is.
