As a vital component of the coalition agreement, legislation was carried to enable a referendum to be held on an electoral system called the alternative vote (AV) which enables the voter to number candidates in order of preference and requires a winning candidate to secure more than 50% of the votes which, if not achieved on the first count, is achieved through successive withdrawal of the lowest-polling candidate and redistribution of that candidate's preferences.

Negative stereotypes imported from England characterizing the Irish as pugnacious, drunken, semi-savages were common and endured for at least the rest of the nineteenth century. Multitudes of cartoons depicting the Irish as small, ugly, simian creatures armed with liquor and a shillelagh pervaded the press; and such terms as "paddy-wagons," "shenanigans," and "shanty Irish" gained popularity http://www.aladinfm.eu/?lib/juliet.

CASE NUMBER: 274 CASE MNEMONIC: POTATO CASE NAME: Irish Potato Famine and Trade A. The Issue Throughout the Potato Famine, from 1845 to 1947, more than one million people died of starvation or emigrated.(1) Additionally, over 50,000 people died of diseases: typhus, scurvy, dysentery.(2) Despite the famine conditions, taxes, rents, and food exports were collected in excess of �6 million and sent to British landlords.(3) Within a decade, the population of Ireland plummeted from over eight million to less than six million. (4) In an attempt to flee the oppression, starvation, and disease that gripped Ireland, the Irish people became the country's greatest export.(5) Although the blight infected crops in the United States, Southern Canada and Western Europe in the years of 1845-1846, the overpopulated subsistence farmers of Ireland were forced to export corn, wheat, barley, and oats to Britain, which left the potato as the sole dietary staple for the people and their animals.(6) While other regions were able to turn to alternative food sources, the Irish were dependent on the potato and the results of the blight were disastrous.(7) 2 http://ballard73.com/?freebooks/shopaholic-baby-a-novel.

The themes of devastation, repression, and transformation examined in this play are explored in a less realistic vein in Skriker (pr. 1993), a surreal drama focusing on the constant metamorphoses of the title character, a mythical Celtic figure who haunts two young women as they travel to urban London. Of particular interest in this play is Churchill’s Joycean linguistic profusion of puns and allusions , e.g. http://ballard73.com/?freebooks/mirror. However, so do apparently more reassuring settings such as, most of all, the village. Indeed it is probably here that British rural horror is at its most unsettling, rendering strange and dangerous what many think of as the ideal community.
