It would only be unpatriotic if all the shops in the south were fully Irish-owned. As it is most of the profits go outside of the country, other than the minimum the companies pay to local products and wages.

Even Dunnes was sold there a few weeks ago wasn't it?

That's a good article though I think the divides in the country are more numerous and deeper than the author implies. Nice to see an MEP take interest in the website bans. Dawkins is only one of many sites banned, she should be asking the EU to ask Turkey what are the exact legal guidelines about ba...

Taoiseach, yes, that would be great, except I don't think the conservatives that get such a position would elect me their leader under any circumstances. Secular country + Irish lives made better + fundamental difference to the man on the street + TD wages = Happy Celtic Atheist. Sounds like the yo...

Climate change is a fact of living on this planet and always has been. Have humans added to this? Probably. Is the human impact likely to change the climate in a way that hasn't been experienced by the planet before? Probably not. By all means make models, make plans for how to adapt to climate chan...

What are your aims? To be Taoiseach? To run the country? To lead a party? To make Irish people's lives better? To create a completely secular country? To make a fundamental difference for the man on the street? To make money? Decide what you want to do first. Then figure out what party or organisati...

Good question! I generally don't use my picture as my avatar on forums. But then I link to my blog which has my picture on it in my signature. I think in a way I want to preserve a certain amount of anonymity while posting but if anyone's interested enough to click on my blog they get rewarded by se...

I'm outside the bounds of the organisation but I would consider supporting (when I'm not so broke :) ) an organisation that promotes knowledge of atheism and provides a meeting point for similarly minded people. I'm not into evangelizing anyone about atheism and don't agree with the idea that atheis...

Now they're taking the piss.

A court in Diyarbakir has banned Blogger/Blogspot. Lots of rumours about why but nothing definite.

Today's Zaman 'Turkey must change Internet law'

I can get around the ban but that is not the point!!
