Interesting poll done by the BT at the SF conference in Mayo, showing the leadership is pretty out of touch with the grass roots and that the traditional view of a "United Ireland" seems pretty blurry thesedays
That's actually pretty good I'd have thought, just 26% of Shinners think force is justifiable, but then it's somewhat contradicted by:Party members were asked if an armed campaign was justified while British rule remained. Some 26pc agreed it was, while only 66pc disagreed.
andOnly 12pc agreed with the North's Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness's statement that the dissidents were "traitors to Ireland", while 72pc disagreed.
Quarter of Sinn Fein members still back terrorist groups against British - Independent.ieut just over a third of delegates (34pc) believed that violent dissidents were criminals and a majority (58pc) regarded them as political offenders.
kinda at odds with the fluffy peace and harmony yet confused gibberish we get around this forum..
