    Default Sinn Féin DID NOT vote for the bank guarantee

    Can we put this to bed, once and for all, for a lot of commentators and posters seem to believe that Sinn Féin DID vote for it, and a lot seem to believe that they DID NOT vote for it. I have read that on the evidence presented on that fateful night, Sinn féin did agree to back the guarantee as an emergency measure to stop a run on Irish banks. However ,once the detail was revealed and the initial evidence was exposed as lies from the banks, ,Sinn Féin subsequently withdrew that initial support and voted against the bill ratifying the Gaurantee, some weeks later. Can someone verify this and provide links to wherther they did or did not !

    Does anyone really care? SF are fairly irrelevant when it comes to economic matters so I don't think most people give a fig what they did with the guarantee. Actually taking a brave decision and sticking to it might have started to give them some credibility but it seems they can't even do that.
