The "debate" passed off in an uninspiring 0 - 0 draw and the only talking points were the Taoiseach's discomfort around his drug taking past and his comfort with his FG/FF coalition future.

It's always hard to imagine something that hasn't been done before. So while it's understandable that people are defending Virgin Media TV's (and RTE's) decision to hold a "leaders" debate, it is, in our opinion wrong. We discuss why this is not representative of the majority of the electorate and needlessly gives the historical parties of governme…

Around 15 years ago, the idea of sending nudes was something that scandalised many people. As a woman, if your intimate pictures were leaked (even if it was through no fault of your own) often many people would blame you for taking the photos in the first place. In 2020, many of us have taken a different view with more and more people taking agency…
