We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

A new forum for Irish and British dialog

I received a web launch reception invite via email a couple days ago and had no particular idea why I was on the list. However, as is the case in the music world and a capital offense in that of journalism, one never, ever, passes up free food and drink.

Much to my surprise, this launch of the Britain and Ireland web site for contemporary conversations is the brain child of the British Council and our good friend Mick Fealty (Slugger O’Toole).

The new site will encourage discussion on historical and current entwinement (or entanglement) of Irish and British affairs with monthly articles as talking points. The site was introduced by Trevor Ringland and keynoted by footballer Niall Quinn. I am sure the ‘discussion as a contact sport’ I expect on this site will make even a rugby game look tame, let alone league football.

If you are interested in this part of the world, I am sure this will become a ‘must read’.

    The biggist difference between the USA and ENGLAND is that we have guns and a second amendment and thier crime rate is going up while ours is going down shows what happens when the citizens are disarmed by liberal nit wits who can afford thier own armed bodyguards and they dont give a damn to the citizens

    Gee, thanks Birdzilla! Yeah, the guys and gals who run this place kinda like guns too (the top of the page is kind of a give away) but I really love your totally pointless and OFF TOPIC comment anyway.

    Shmuck.
