Peter Nolan, a Fianna Fail man, in exile in London runs a cracking wee blog that rarely gets entangled in Northern Ireland, but has some excellent blogging on mainstream politics, economics and development! Although I suspect Fianna Fail defies all of this attempt to define left and right politics over a range of social and economic issues.
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.
