Adams to seek re-election as Sinn Féin President

https://www.rte.ie/news/politics/2017/0905/902351-sinn-fein-think-in/

Surely if anything he should announcing he stepping down this year?

I mean I cant really see the Young Guns being very happy about this at all!

I wonder would he win this time out?

- because if the Party is to retain any credibility as being other than a one man band

- someone has to go for it....

Himself and the Queen are in a game of wits. Neither wants to blink first.

Good news. This basicly makes sure SF will not gain enough seats to be a majority or even the biggest party. Long may that dinosaur reign.

Even I have to agree with the anti SFers and trolls, FG/FF/LP/SIndo/RTE etc will be smiling with glee. :roll: :roll:

I think he might. Think about it - 6 months or so as Sinn Fein president, then hands over to Mary Lou and runs for President.
He wouldn't have a hope of winning

In fact he would bomb [sorry!] at the ballot box

It would be frankly embarrassing....:oops:

Mary Lou looks far more like a dinosaur than poor old jarry, and her bite is far more dangerous.

Will anyone stand against him?
Not if they value their kneecaps!

He has huge megalomania - plain and simple.
I can get him a good chocolate flavoured tonic for that!

Is Gerry going to run for the Presidency in 2018?
Martín "Mad Dog Bomber" McGuinness told him to pick up his "baton" and run with it! Vincent Brown had a trouser crisis when he heard!

Sinn Féin Leader Gerry Adams said he will seek re-election as the party president in November and then outline his own future intentions
Vote for me and then I'll tell you what's what!

Need someone to sort out that Wolf of Wall Street Gif with Gerry's head please.

I don't think he'll win - but his electoral record doesn't back up the theory of his unelectability. He's won every election he's ever stood bar one - & over a great many years.

It would depend who else is running.

If he were up against some dull FG person, Dana, Bertie and George Hook - Gerry might well win.
