Sinn Fein for DETI…

A friend bet me yesterday that Sinn Fein would pick the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment when it comes to their turn to pick key ministries. It makes sense, since the party is gathering brickbats for its poor grasp of economics, DETI would be a great start for skilling up their back-room team (courtesy of the NICS). It might help them deflect caustic remarks like those made by Tiarnan O’Mahony yesterday at Leinster Society of Chartered Accountants, when he described their policies in the Republic “as economic terrorism which would nationalise industry and increase taxes, particularly corporation tax”.They should get second bite of the cherry, after the DUP who seem intent on taking finance. See Sammy’s blog for the parties’ order of choice.
