The hard-hitting current affairs podcast presented by William Campbell (right) meets former Dublin Lord Mayor Dermot Lacey (left), a veteran Labour voice on Dublin City Council.

William writes:

Dermot Lacey has been on the council for decades. I take him to task on whether Irish local government is up to doing the job that it has well, let alone whether it deserves more powers.

Also, what is Johnson’s government purpose in brazenly announcing that they are going to defy international law?

William meets Linda Ervine (above left) president of the recently-formed East Belfast GAA.

William writes:

With opinion polls on Irish unity shifting, I ask: is Unionist thinking moving forward in the North? Linda Ervine doesn’t sound like previous generations of Protestants, particularly when she’s speaking as Gaeilge.

Also, some anonymous online comments supported burning a Traveller family out of their new home in Carnmore, Galway. A local councillor demanded that locals be ‘consulted’ before Travellers move in, but is that just coded support for the bigots?

Saturday’s ‘March for Innocence‘ was called by John Connors (above left with Irish Freedom Party President Hermann Kelly) when images of new Children’s minister Roderic O’Gorman marching alongside Peter Tatchell at Dublin Pride in 2018 resurfaced.

Human rights campaigner Mr Tatchell’s views on children and sex and lowering the age of consent have caused controversy for decades in the UK.

In a statement, Minister O’Gorman, who believes that the ‘entire area’ around consent laws need to be re-examined, said he had no affiliation with Mr Tatchell and described his critics as ‘a small group of people with a very clear agenda’.

William writes:

Far-right politicians and their allies have complained loudly on social media that they don’t get the media coverage they deserve… but they have proven much more bashful when I ask them to discuss the issues….

There might be an elaborate courtship dance going on between the Green Party and the two traditional government parties, but how would they fare on a compatibility test?
