meriwether said:Anyhow, SF's little AIW theory has been shown up to be false and a fraud, so Im happy.
Any other business?
It has not been shown to be false and a fraud. What has been shown is that there are questions to be answered as to exactly how it applies to Gerry Adams. It should also be said, that if he were in Fianna Fáil or Fine Gael, he would be both claiming the FULL elected salary PLUS the income from the books. The fact that he at least only claims the AIW from his elected position is still a positive thing for me.
I would be interested to know how much is made from the books, and if this is all his personal wealth. I bought his last book, which to be honest was like an amalgamation of all Factual's posts on politics.ie between two covers. Is Factual Gerry Adams? :lol:
But the vast majority of Sinn Féin elected representatives do come under the AIW policy, both in word and in deed. It is a good policy, and is definitely a way of ensuring that they keep in touch with their support base.
