Bertie Ahern’s announcement yesterday that his party will be looking into organising in Northern Ireland leaves open some interesting questions for both British and Irish Labour, not least if they find themselves with no ‘partner’ party in Northern Ireland. Slugger is convening a modest discussion group in a pub in Bournemouth next week during the British Labour Party’s annual conference. If you are going to the conference or you know someone who is, let us know you’re coming by ‘booking’ your place here. Or you can ‘book’ through Facebook.
Mick is founding editor of Slugger. He has written papers on the impacts of the Internet on politics and the wider media and is a regular guest and speaking events across Ireland, the UK and Europe. Twitter: @MickFealty
