Labour Party simply not coping with the class politics of poo and pee
Something stinks in the Irish Republic. Two years from now it may be you. Because if Irish Water has its way, people of modest means will not be able to wash as often as the well-off.
By then, however, Sinn Fein may be making us smell in ways no amount of washing will make go away. So it is worrying to see a consensus of commentators holding their noses and calling for a general amnesty.
Certainly an amnesty would suit all those who want the past to go away: the British government, Sinn Fein's American supporters, and Sinn Fein itself, anxious to speed up its aim of dominance north and south. What it calls, speaking in capital letters, the Project.
