Fine Gael will have to prove it is moving away from being a partitionist party. and vote for a voice for the 6 counties in the EP.

Colm Eastwood the SDLP Leader said today that ‘ off the ‘ Mark Durkan can rejoin the SDLP Fianna Fáil for the next Westminster elections despite Durkan standing for Fine Gael against Fianna Fáil in this years European election- this is not a ************************ up- just confirmation that Fine Gael SDLP Fianna Fáil are one dysfunctional family-

So many places this thread could go. :shock:
Mark Durkan to run for Fine Gael in European elections
So much for the SDLP-FF merger.

The Irish Independent seems unhappy about it, going by how they titled their article:
- Fine Gael European Elections candidate Mark Durkan unable to name four streets in Dublin - Independent.ie

Anyone got any ideas about what's really going on here? A stab in the back for Fianna Fail? An attempt by Durkan to raise his personal profile south of the border? Or to increase FG's credibility about no longer being the evil signatories of the treaty and portray them as the one-nation party?
Has Durkan ever actually achieved anything in politics (or even outside of it)?

Not going to be an issue, Daly in the ring now, Durkin is KO, its fantastic FG can afford to keep running DUDs in elections, again this suits a particular narrative at the time. But like ideas they have it ends up bad
