    Default Sinn Fein expel sectarian football "fan"

    From RTE News

    SF member expelled from party
    Sunday, 14 October 2007 20:03
    A member of Sinn Féin who attacked a pub in Derry has been dismissed from the party.

    Football fan Francis O'Reilly, 29, is serving three months in prison for targeting the Tavern Bar on the edge of the loyalist Fountain estate last Monday.

    The bar was left covered in broken glass after it was pelted with missiles by a gang of Bohemians fans at the Eircom League Cup final with Derry City.

    A spokesman for Sinn Féin said: 'He was a member of a local branch of Sinn Féin in Dublin.

    'Once it was realised that he was a member he was summarily dismissed.'

    I find this bizarre, this man's sectarian actions get him dismissed from the party and yet we have bombers on the executive? Perhaps a little bit of a double standard?
    We should be shaping an Ireland based on full respect for the human and civil rights of all our people, an Ireland of which Larkin and Connolly would be very proud.

    Enda Kenny on FF government: “We’re in this mess, not because Fianna Fáil policies have failed, but because they have succeeded.”

    Idiot.
    Why is he an idiot? He asked a reasonable question. Not everyone on this forum feels it is right that former terrorists/freedom fighters should be allowed to be leaders of a political party.

    We all know that is what happened in Israel but it took years for them to be accepted internationally.
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.
