A political absolution? Of sorts. January 29, 2018

Is the thought that comes to mind reading this from Stephen Collins in the IT in relation to SF…

Sinn Féin and its new leader Mary Lou McDonald face a defining moment in the latest round of talks between the Northern parties which began on Wednesday. If the party can work out a deal with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) it can realistically aspire to be in government in the Republic at some stage, and possibly even after the next election.
If it is not able to find a way of compromising in the North it will be a clear signal that the party is not capable of government on either side of the Border.

Hmmmmm… so absent Adams SF is fit for government, if it can find the way to govern. But hold on, wasn’t it in power sharing for the last x number of years in the North until last year? Am I missing something here?

In other ways it’s quite a piece – written as if from a parallel universe.

Yet more ‘advice’ from a ‘friend’ that PSF should entirely ignore. Word is that the nationalist voters in the North are entirely behind not compromising to save Arlene Foster’s bigotted skin.

And Collins is really trying to play it both ways, here. What has it to do with coalition in the south as to how matters stand between PSF and the DUP?

I can safely say that Collins will oppose PSF in government in any situation short of their electing a FG taoiseach.

Arlene Foster’s skin won’t need to be saved because the DUP will be gone from their Westminster “confidence and supply arrangement” if Gina Miller gets her way!
