    In other words, the Scum Féin Brains Trust accepts that the Party will be in opposition for the rest of my life - even if I live to be 100!

    Phew, that's a great relief.

    Well the 4 of them left are all in their mid 80s and it's tough to stay awake the whole day for them at this stage. So "conscious" could be right.

    Once again the Irish Times, the former unionist newspaper, through laziness, incompetence or malice, reports incorrectly on what Sinn Féin's position on participation in a coalition government is.

    There has been no change to that position since since before the last election.
    Report them.

    I don't think it is a former unionist newspaper - it is still unionist as the attempt to distort its 1916 replication of its front page shows.

    There is absolutely ZERO possibility that SF IRA will lead a Gubberment or be a minority party with a left wing party.

    FG/FF are now nearly over 60% and rising.

    Sinn Fein are a sort of ISIS in ultra slow motion. A promised gaelic caliphate always over the horizon, young males recruited on an ongoing basis then turned into old raggedy drunk lefties in dodgy parts of Dublin. Endless ideological posturing from the various Hyde Park Corners of Ireland. THey'll never ever be in government, will never make a decision or a choice that impacts on the lives of the population. Just a complete waste of cardboard for election posters. A party of electioneers essentially.

    Typo. Though I must have a subconscious block with writing conscience and Labour in the same sentence.

    Must remember that next time people are claiming that SF avoid going into Government.
