Cartoon – Selective abstentionism

Sinn Fein, Abstentionism, Brian John Spencer

This cartoon was inspired by a piece over on where Slugger’s David McCann writes that the State Visit means no end to Sinn Fein abstentionism. Though I’ve heard a few lone voices say otherwise. Hand-shaking, soup-taking and toasting were long abstained from. Thoughts?
