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?
