    I agree, especially as the Ra are not contesting the Elections.

Just a complete waste of cardboard for election posters. A party of electioneers essentially.

    Everybody lies about everything except sin fein of course,
    Truth being they dont want to be in gov in the Republic,the North or indeed in westminster,,

    Strangely enough in the last 18 months there has been an opportunity to play their part in all three parliments ...
    Nor do they want to be in opposition even.

    Yes folks all three house of discussion were beyond their interest (ability)

    No sin fein are happy to draw their "average industrial" from the Irish taxpayer and from the uk taxpayer for doing bugger all other than throwing the odd tantrum,,,

    Its a form of robbery but then we all know their people wouldn't be involved in anything like that

    Same ole same ole where SF is concerned - take the money and run.

    I suppose one difference these days is that with their snouts in so many troughs they don't have to rob too many banks.

    Put simply, Sinn Féin will participate as a minority partner in government, provided that the government nevertheless is a majority left led government. That was the position the party adopted prior to the last election.

    There has been no change to that position since since before the last election.
    Given the very high improbability of such a scenario where's the lie? It is a very handy cover!

    At the last election there was every chance of a left led government but with Fianna Fáil as the largest individual party.

    Sinn Féin wants proper left right politics. Not this pretendy wendy opposition by a right wing party to a right wing government.
