In Fianna Fáil's annual commemorate for the cameras ceremony at Bodenstown, Martin accused the government of having the bare minimum amount of meetings concerning the North.
So basically, he accused the government of treating the North like Fianna Fáil ministers treated European meetings during their tenure of begging for economic help, i.e. they were practically a no-show.
That said, we all know of Fine Gael's opposition to republicanism and Labour's ignorance of it. Fianna Fáil, on the other hand, are the republican party (according to nobody but the aul ones in that shambles of a party). They totally ignore the electorate there and, in all their years in government, did nothing to advance republicanism in any way, shape or form except follow Sinn Féin and the SDLP's lead in establishing peace in the North.
Obviously, anyone with a brain would realise that these comments are aimed at conservative republican voters who are between two minds as to vote for FF or SF.
He also accused SF, who have sacrificed the most to make the peace process work, of putting political advantage ahead of the common good. One wonders what FF have done to advance the goal of peace on this island, or to advance the goal of republicanism at that.
