About FitzjamesHorse

My name is John Mooney. I am a Husband, Father and Grandfather. Now that I am retired, those three things are all I need to be.

I dont take the Blogosphere seriously. It may or may not be cutting edge Technology which will revolutionise Political Discourse. I prefer to think of it as having the same meaningful impact as……the hula hoop.

Besides there is no need for me to take Blogging seriously. There are plenty of other Bloggers who are filled with self-importance.

I am a democrat, socialist, republican and nationalist. I was a member of SDLP from 1973 to 1981. And from 2011. I am a bit slow about paying my 2016 subscription.

Although I voted Sinn Fein from 1993 to 2009, I regard myself as “gene pool SDLP”.
I despise Letsgetalongerism. And the cosy overclass of wasters in civic society who believe they are entitled to run Norn Iron.

    You mention “others” full of self importance? Starting with yourself I can only assume!

    • Well Harry……..youre only half right (and I am being generous).
      The Keeping An Eye on the Czar of Russia is actually a reference to the egotism of the editor of the Skibbereen Eagle, who warned the Czar that he was keeping an eye on him.
      Bloggers…….and I include my good self….. are the modern day equivilant.
      We are totally without influence and like to think that tapping away with two fingers on a keyboard bestows some kinda gravitas.
      I am NOT the Huffington Post.
      That is not of course the case with my so called rivals in the rarified “hub” of Norn Iron Internet blogging.
      I at least have the sense to know that its all nonsense.

    Glad to have causally bumped into your blog. Like many Irishmen left the country at a young age and enden up in Italy 1980 and still here.
    Followed the old Irish custom of my many countrymen being too fond of the spirits (not the holy ones).
    Gave up and now refreshing the brain cells.
    Good luck on your MBA

    “I despise Letsgetalongerism”
    I stumbled on your blog, very enjoyable and well written. But I’m baffled by what you mean in your quote above. Care to elucidate?

  6. No John, it’s not the politics that we Letsgetalongerists seek to take out of politics, it’s outdated naked and craven sectarianism we want rid of. We want real politics in, working together to properly prioritise spending on health, education, skills, development Etc.; saving wasted money by dismantling the existing apartheid, “separate but equal”, policies choking our future. Segregation gave us a horrid past; let’s get along and make it history.

  7. Dammit I cant delete it.
