Joanne Dunlop with a spirited account of the pro-choice case on abortion in Northern Ireland. It’s an issue on which there is a conspicuous and almost entirely unanimous consensus amongst all of Northern Ireland’s political parties. It’s a refreshing original analysis that, ironically may find supporters from every side. It’s also a sign that the Balnket is broadening the scope of it writing and its audience! Via Mwk.
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
