Hearts and Minds on the Ides of March…


This Ides of March we reflect on the murder of Julius Caesar and the law of unintended consequences. What lessons for the peace process as we stand on the brink of powersharing? We hear from a batch of the new faces who’ll be gracing the leather benches at Stormont. And in Washington we meet the new Presidential special envoy…is there anything left for her to do?

    Wasn’t Noel a bit previous here? I thought the Ides of March was the 15th March. Ah well no use letting facts get in the way of a crap story.

    Should we take advice on peace and good government from the sponsors of oil wars in the Middle East and the custodians of Guantanamo Bay?

    “The Liberalia (17 March) is the festival of Liber Pater and his consort Libera. The Romans celebrated Liberalia with sacrifices, processions, ribald and gauche songs, and masks which were hung on trees.”

    So nothing much changes :>)
