    In the summer of 2000 I found myself sat at the counter of a small bar somewhere on the coast of Virginia, USA.  The barman, a man in his 40s with long hair and a beard, was friendly enough and we were chatting (the place wasn’t busy).  I don’t remember what we talked about and I would have otherwise forgotten being there were it not for one thing he said regarding Britain: “Well, you guys just need to get the fuck out of Ireland.” I wasn’t particularly annoyed by the remark – dumbassed comments on the Northern Irish situation were common enough back home…
  • The Gay Marriage Decision: Right Outcome, Wrong Reasons

    I’ll start this post by saying I am satisfied at the outcome of the US Supreme Court’s decision that gay marriages shall be recognised across the whole nation.  I’m a believer in equality and liberty and see no reason why homosexuals should have been treated any differently from heterosexuals. However, I am not particularly happy about the route taken to reach this decision and the basis on which this recognition was granted.  I would have been a lot happier had the US Supreme Court said: “The issue of marriage, or any other aspect of personal relations between…

    This post is an expansion of a comment I left over at TNA’s gaff, and is on the subject of the recent execution of Australians Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, the ringleaders of the Bali Nine group who were arrested for smuggling a shitload of heroin out of Bali in 2005. Firstly, Australia as a nation was entitled to, and would have been correct IMO, to oppose the execution of these two men on grounds of principle.  Such a principle could have been that the death penalty should never apply in any case for a variety of reasons, for example: 1) the fallibility of any justice system; 2)…
