Accusations arising out of a fear of Sinn Fein

Daily Ireland columnist Damien Kiberd offers the explanation that “the planting in the media of various bizarre stories designed to de-stabilise Sinn Fein”, is being orchestrated out of a fear that Sinn Fein will permitted to participate in the control of the PSNI and ultimately the final dismantling of Special Branch. He accuses the party’s political opponents of orchestrating a media campaign against it, because they fear the rise and rise of the party.
