    Default Sinn Féin financial package to be unveiled

    Sinn Fein are to unveil a fanancial package constituting £1bn of cuts tomorrow. Watch discussion here:

    Sinn Fein to reveal savings plan - Northern Ireland, Local & National - Belfasttelegraph.co.uk

    All partisan comments to one side, I think this shows that the old image of Sinn Féin as a fically clueless party are not sustainable. THe above are the actions of a financially respoonsible political party, making the tough choices that will keep the six counties' finances on a much better footing than our own.

    I wonder will double jobbing etc for sf party members take a hit in their money saving exercise.

    We are over spending by €20 Billion per annum

    And the best SF can come with it is a measly 1 in cuts!!!

    That just does not cut the mustard Factual.

    As a matter of interest - what is the average industrial wage?

    The average in west Belfast? East Tyrone? RoI average? Or the UK average?

    And is that before, or including, expenses?

    Do you have that actual figure as no one from sf appears to know what amount it really is.
    Regardless of where the remainder goes ( into the party or otherwise) double jobbing keeps some one else out of a job and more than likely in or very close to POVERTY.
    Remember when true socialists preferred to spread the wealth.
    Remember when you could`nt be a member of SF and a LANDLORD.

    For a fiscally clueless party they certainly make sense in the North. Then of course they are active in a part of the Island with a better health service, a much smaller deficit and a whole lot more going for them. I think the "fiscally clueless" are well and truly entrenched in the South.
