Swift's Modest Proposal is an example of political satire. But violence once again erupted, this time among the Irish themselves, between those demanding full independence from Britain and those willing to accept inclusion in the Commonwealth (dominion status). The Irish Parliamentary Party had always survived by maintaining a balance of power between the Conservative and Liberal parties; by 1906, after the fall of Irish MP Charles Stewart Parnell and the temporary abandonment of Home Rule, the Party had lost this advantage Redmond’s hold on his party ultimately relied on his ability to pass Home Rule; in this he took too long. 32 Due to his desperate efforts to reach a Home Rule agreement at almost any cost, 33 Redmond was seen as a puppet of the British Parliament.

Photo50 curated by Christiane Monarchi Photo50 is an annual guest-curated exhibition at the Fair which provides a critical showcase of some of the most interesting and distinctive elements of current photographic practice. Because the fingering proceeds from a closed system, a wide variety of style and ornamentation is possible, giving the player much discretion in how he/she interprets the music.

In the 1950s the so-called Kitchen Sink School - perhaps the most realistic of all modern art movements - had appeared which took Sickert's love of domestic squalor a stage further: the coarsely handled pictures of John Bratby (1928-92) and Jack Smith (b.1928) glory in the actuality of stub-filled ash-trays, bathroom fittings and messy kitchens. Though the book is not structured to feature chapters on authors thought to be canonical, on the principle that contemporary writers are by definition not yet canonical, the volume contains commentary on many prominent poets, as well as finding space for its contributors' enthusiasms for numerous less familiar figures.

The elite nationalist group was mainly composed of Irish Catholic lawyers and journalists. The starvation (and genocide) occurred as the British carried on their historical exploitation of the Irish people, failed to take appropriate action in the face of the failure of the potato crop, and maintained their racist attitude toward the Irish.

Cromwell’s military campaign in Ireland is one event that the British can never remember and the Irish can never forget. Daniels ’s powerful and complex female characters respond to the demands and the traps of a male-centered culture. In the Royal Air Force, cadets are sprogs and military police are Rock Apes (an insulting comparison of the unskilled police - unlike other RAF personnel they do not have a trade - to the wildlife of Gibraltar); angels measure altitude (each is 10,000 feet), a bandit is an enemy aeroplane and a bogey is an unidentified aircraft, while airspeed is measured in knots - nautical miles per hour.

At BIMM London, there are no fewer than five vocal studios – all equipped with industry-standard mics courtesy of Shure and Sontronics. One would be hard-pressed to consider Cheek's or Fisher's work in terms of its "solidity" - a critical term much favoured by critics like James Fenton and Anthony Thwaite - just as one would have great difficulty praising the work of Ken Edwards, Linton Kwesi Johnson or Catherine Walsh for the "delectability" of its language.
