In more #UnintendedConsequences of stupid policies, before Minimum Unit Pricing these two bottles of wine differed in price by a little over a Euro. Now the stronger wine is just 30c more expensive. So we’d expect to see more people drink the stronger wine as a result of MUP.

Germany says they have a “historical responsibility” not to export weapons to conflict zones, as they refuse their airspace to British aircrafts flying to Ukraine. A surprising statement from a country that consistently ranks as a Top 5 global weapons exporter. 🇬🇧🇩🇪🇺🇦

For years Go Vegan World (a tiny animal sanctuary in Meath) has undertaken a multi-million propaganda campaign across Britain and Ireland. They refuse to disclose their funding - they also refuse to deny that they're getting money from commercial interests.
Look at the sign on the bus 🤪

I’m often asked, what is *the* most important philosophy book people should read. Without question, it’s Plato’s Republic. Live with it. Savor it. Genuinely reflect upon its lessons. Here it is, free: fulltextarchive.com/pdfs/Pla…

All cycle lanes should, by default, be two-way. Cycle lanes pick up the detritus of road traffic, and single lanes are too narrow for mechanical street cleaners to enter. Parts of the new lane on Griffith Avenue are already filled with mud, sticks and stones.
Do excuse me if I don't use this cycle lane put in 'at great expense'

We Irish used to be famed for our courageous, indomitable spirit. But no more. We willingly bow down to EU austerity. And we accept every Covid measure, no matter how harsh. We've become the most subservient lickspittles on the planet, says Darragh McManus spiked-online.com/2022/01/11…

Are knowledgeable voters better voters? journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.… "Empirical work in psychology and political science indicates that politically knowledgeable individuals are often highly partisan and that partisans tend to be biased, dogmatic, and polarized."
