Sinn Féin have a huge identity crisis. Talk to their young members and it's all about abortions for pregnant men, wanting to put asylum seekers in 5 star hotels, and smashing the fictional patriarchy. Talk to older shinners and they are more concerned with issues of poverty and public services, although when they go to the US they cosy up to big business and rich. Then you talk to their less well educated base and it's still all about bash a Brit and punch a prod. Mary Lou is trying to appease these different groups and failing. SF need to decide which route they want to go down.I dont think so. Work colleagues and friends that I know, used to be coming around to SF during the 2011-2016 period. These same people have become disillusioned with SF because they feel SF do not represent them anymore. SF have totally adopted this identity politics lark and have abandoned bread and butter issues, simple as!
