Comment of the day…

We’re running in a few new commenting tools on Slugger, which we hope will help raise standards on the blog. But I also want (from time to time) mark out good content from the comments zone. So the reader’s comment of the day (so far) is from Laughing (Tory) Unionist on Mr Reckless’s Red C poll:

I still regret ’79 (when the sterling link was broken, by the South, in favour of the ERM), but having made that mistake then, Dublin’s going to have to live with the consequences now. And while they’re not going to be pleasant, let’s junk this absurd talk of running to mother: the Republic’s quite grown-up enough to realise that she has to sort her problems out herself.

Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
