Sinn Fein can get lost. Fake progessivism in the South, pandering to the theocratic dinosaurs up North. Another Fianna Fail is what they are.

Sinn Féin has come out against legalising abortion in cases of non-fatal foetal abnormalities in Northern Ireland.

Just right, too.

How could you support that legislation? Like if a child has brown eyes can it be aborted? No thumb on one hand? Sticky out ears? What's the threshold?

You have misinterpreted me. I said it's just right they are supporting changing it from the free for all that was imposed by Westminster.
I would go for much much stricter than that even, but the amendment is better than nothing

Sinn Féin are all over the shop on this. They don't care about unborn or anyone else. Just votes

Conor Murphy - "The reason we had to go into lockdown, and people should understand this, is because the health service has been under-resourced through austerity cuts over many years” - like what is that even about.

Not quite sure what's he's implying by that.

It wouldn't have mattered if there had been an infinite number of ventilators and ICU bed's people would have died from catching it and the only way to prevent them from catching it is lockdown and social distancing.

Lest said the better at times.

Sweden wasn't. Their deaths stand at around 4,500 and their GDP grew by 0.4%.

Lol. His party contributed to it with 3 years procurement cuts at Stormont. The man is a tube

There is a lot of misinformation floating around re. Sweden.

Yes it's true their govt didn't impose a lockdown, but they still advised voluntary self-isolation, which many Swedes complied with. Plus they introduced some other measures, such as banning gatherings of more than 50 people.

Anyhow, as of April 19th,if  Sweden's infection rate was only slightly higher than that of its Scandinavian neighbours, this may be misleading, since they weren't testing so many people. Moreover, their infection rate at that stage was rising quicker than other Scandinavian countries.

Most worrying of all is that Sweden's confirmed deaths to confirmed cases ratio is more than twice as high as Denmark's and more than five times higher than Norways:
Sweden: 10.93%

Denmark: 4.78%

Norway: 2.12%.

Apparently the above ratio is not so instructive as the overall ratio of covid deaths per million of population, but here too Sweden fares much worse than the other two:
Sweden: 149.61

Denmark: 59.74

Norway: 27.3

Anyhow, since it dates from mid-April, a lot might have changed since then, for better or worse. But I quote the above to illustrate just how dangerous it is to make general comparisons without drilling down much deeper to establish a more complete picture.

(The above stats were taken from this fact-checking article: https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2020/apr/28/facebook-posts/sweden-mostly-open-has-higher-covid-19-death-rate-/ )

Sweden also in the top 5 in the world for deaths per 1m population so hardly the shining light to hold up to the rest of the world!!

SF proposing (in the 26)  that every adult get a €200 voucher and every child a €100 one to be spent in the Hospitality/Tourism sector.
Pearse Doherty says they are ready to talk to "change" parties to try and form a "left led" Government if the Greens reject going in with FF/FG.
He's hoping someone (FF presumably) will allow this with a Confidence and Supply arrangement.
