What socialist credentials..?

SINN Fein leader Gerry Adams will address the European Social Forum at its opening this weekend. No doubt he will be recounting his meeting with George Bush, his party’s support for Private Finance Initiatives in the Assembly and how Sinn Fein called for a Coca Cola plant to be built while at the same time boycotting the product. Can Sinn Fein be seriously described as ‘socialist’ any more?

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
