UTV carries a Press association report,Sinn Fein in ‘rogue members’ call, of an ultimatum issued by Sinn FÃ©in’s Caoimhghin O Caolain for “rogue members to leave the party immediately so there can be a speedy implementation of the Good Friday Agreement.“. The acknowledgement that there are rogue elements within Sinn FÃ©in is in itself significant. This seems to be an admission
that Sinn FÃ©in have contributed to some of the recent problems and is a welcome change from the posturing of the past few weeks. The next question – is this a genuine change of heart or merely a cynical ploy to try and regain lost ground?
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.
