Professor of Creative Writing

labradore suitably skewers Patrick O'Flaherty's latest column which - for reasons known only to O'Flaherty  - tries to cast the democratic referendum  on responsible government in 1948 in entirely ethic and sectarian terms.

O'Flaherty is a fiction writer, it should be noted, not a historian so some of his comments in the column  -  like the stuff about resources - can be put to an inherent tendency to make things up.

For those who can't figure it out, labradore's  title for the post translates as "money and the ethnic vote."
