Jaysus the stoops are taking the FF takeover very bad.
The stoops are dying , if FF give some leadership and structure then they will start to get some support from the disillusioned  nationalist masses .
Here’s hoping 🤞

The only thing FF will teach them is corruption and how to f**k up a country. If you are looking to those w**kers for help god help you. How anyone in this country could vote for them after what they did is beyond me.
I take it you don't live in the north
we have no government
everything is a carve up between dup/sinn fein,
apart from sound bites regarding irish language etc
what are they actively doing re brexit,regarding job losses, education, health etc
ff might just bring sinn fein a dose of reality that they and the dup must start acting like grown ups and start justifying their salaries

I was born and bred 5 mies south of the border. I am aware of how the North operates and I am also aware of how the south works. FF are a cancer and if you think getting cancer is the cure for your ills you are sadly mistaken.

Their politicans seem to have lost the ability to think for themselves and it has been increasingly evident since MON became the northern leader. First it was the gay marraige thing and now its aboprtion.

It's not unusual for a party to keep members in line with whip for issues.

As for thinking for themselves I thought the evidence at the RHI inquiry was very damning.  The evidence of Martin O'Muilleoir was shocking but overshadowed by the DUP shenagins.  It appeared that the most mundane of decisions were passed to third parties for sing-off.

It's a measure of how dysfunctional Northern politics has become that this hardly garnered any attention.

/Jim.
None of the parties covered themselves in glory regarding RHI and it's oversight, it's just that the DUP were embroiled in the scheme.

My point is peripheral to the RHI scheme really.  What I found strange was that an elected a politician was getting "approval" from non-elected people for even the most mundane decisions.

It presents two likely scenarios.  The first is that he is completely incompetent.  The second scenario (one which would be grist to the mill of Shinner critics) is that shadowy figures in the background are running the show.

The DUP have made such a fcuk job of things, the Shinners could get away with that without a whimper from the press.

It's bewildering to watch it from outside but I guess both parties have massive electoral mandates which they can point to as justification.

/Jim.

I was reading a few tweets about belfast city council meeting last night and the motion to cut bonfire funding. A carve up between sf and dup is what long called it. Hard not to disagree.

Exactly harold. It is difficult. There are some ones moving up from the south i see with about 6 candidates. I can't recall name. Aside from them no one.

Belfast City Council funding is an exercise in SF & DUP allocating money to their own wee pet groups that are staffed by party activists, family members etc. Has been like that for years.

And today the Irish News reports that £500k of “bonfire diversion” Council funds has been awarded to Feile, before the application process has even started, and a director of Feile is the brother of a SF councillor.

And then the walk out along with the DUP few days ago in Belfast when the SIF project was challenged at council meeting. And then there is Maria Cahill of course. And then............. far too many issues

I see in the latest Sinn Fein/DUP carve up the Belfast City councillors voted down channelling the £500k to an anti-poverty initiative so it could be given to Feile, so we can safely assume Jackie McDonald and his cohort of “community workers” will be getting a similar rate payer funded windfall soon, with Sinn Féin’s full backing.

They don't even try to hide it any more.

Maybe with global warming we can grow bananas.

They know they can do it unchallenged and will all be voted back in and can continue to do it, maybe raise a few strategic green/orange sham fights towards election time

Purely coincidentally  :-\ an identical sum of money has been made available for bonfire initiatives.

Absolute jokers.

I don't want to be too melodramatic with this but the robotic nature of their followers on social media is very unnerving at times. Reminds me of infamous regimes we have seen down through history.
It is a worrying trend and if you dare disagree with them they attack you with a pack mentality which is quite viscous.

Yup. That about sums it all up.
