In light of the recent Irish Times opinion poll which showed a surge in support for Fianna Fail at the expense of Sinn Fein, i ask the question are Sinn Fein taken seriously? Is it time they got rid of the likes of Adams and Ferris in order to make serious gains in this state? The fact that Sinn Fein are behind the most toxic party in the state must privately worry some within Sinn Fein. It is my belief that many people still find Sinn Fein repulsive as long as those from the " war" days remain in the party. Fine Gael/ Labour/ and Fianna Fail all have tried and failed terribly at handling the economic situation, Sinn Fein should be using this to their advantage.
Sinn Fein as a party that has not been in power should be doing a lot better in the polls considering the disaster the other 3 parties have inflicted on the state. Sinn Fein have an object to everything stance that puts many people off. Is it time they cleared out the likes of Adams and Ferris and came up with some serious policies, in order to be considered more than just a party of protest and a credible alternative something which they are not at the moment.
