Sean Farren argues that Sinn Fein is limited in its legitimate use of any democratic mandate:
They have a mandate for lasting peace and equality, yet in the negotiations when they were meant to be working for peace, they knew the IRA was planning the biggest robbery ever. They abused their own mandate.
“No nationalist voted for kidnapping a family and armed robbery. Nationalists resent the way unionists are now making out that they support kidnappings and crime.”
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.
