    Default Fine Gael and Jean McConville

    I was recently watching this video where Aengus ” Snodaigh was talking about the new bill that commentarates Irishmen who fought in the world wars yet were considered "traitors/absconders" at the time. While Aengus ” Snodaigh welcomed this he went on to highlight other Irishmen that need recognition such as those who fought in the Spanish Civil War and those anti treaty republicans that were interned in the Curragh by the FF government at the time. In response to this there were shouts of "wheres Jean McConville?" from the FG benches.

    Now whilst myself and many people would condemn Ms McConville's murder, the use of her name by FG as a taunting stick to SF has gone too far. It is clear there is no scenerity on FG's half and they clearly dont care about Ms McConville yet her disappearance has just become a tool to use against SF. It is one thing to say it to Adams due to his alleged links to the incident but against the likes of ” Snodaigh who was a mere 8 at the time it is just a head in the sand tactic. While FG are clearly concerned about SF's rise in the polls it is time they dropped the name calling and taunting and actually start to address SF's policies rather than shouting about Jean McConville, the magic money tree and micky mouse politics.

    Would you get a proof reader and resubmit like a good lad?

    Maybe then we might have a serious discussion.

    I'm on my phone so with autocorrect and posting long paragraphs it's kinda hard!

    This government said they would introduce Dail reform,Kenny and Barrett has brought the,
    the standard to gutter level. A disgrace to our democratic system, Mr Kenny has a massive majority but the contempt he has shown the electorate is hard to understand,

    Anyone who condones the murder of a young woman is no position to ask questions of anyone else.

    Showing up the gross and sickening hypocrisy of SF on practically any issue you care to name is always worth while.

    This will always be a sore point for SF & Adams because for whatever reason they simply will not just come clean about it.

    Dunno, I'm no fan of FG, but anyone who condones murder is a scumbag.
