Looking after their own

stormontcashThe politicians in Stormont are actually very generous at times.

It has come to light that on top of their self-awarded 10% pay rise, MLA’s have been paid £148,000 in compensation for giving up their council seats.

The figures were released from the Dept of Environment in February.

So unlike workers, there’s no need for MLA’s to occupy any buildings looking for unpaid wages after losing jobs or going to food banks to survive.

Peter Hadden (1950-2010)

On the first anniversary of the death of Comrade Peter Hadden we republish an article he wrote in 2008 on the 20th anniversary of the killing of three IRA volunteers in Gibraltar and the subsequent events. This article is an important Marxist analysis of these events, but more than that it is a critique of the futility of IRA's campaign of individual terror, the role of British imperialism and a confirmation that the national question in Ireland can only be resolved through the building of a mass movement for socialism based on working class unity.
