    "The Lost Revolution: A History of the OIRA and Workers Party"

    Apparently, Brian Hanley and Scott Millar's book, "The Lost Revolution" on the history of the WP is being published tomorrow. Given there are hardly any
    books on the WP, this should be interesting.

    i wonder if it will reveal any new historical nuggets - lets face it , getting a full OIRA/WP history is difficult to say the least, as many of the protagonists are still alive.

    Nah - in these NAMA times, it might be to Gillys advantage to be tarred with a revolutionary brush.

    Politics can be a funny thing - all to do with timing.
