No it isn't. Hint: not everything is black and white. Not everybody fits into neat boxes of political opinion.
In terms of who rules and benefits and who suffers it is clearly black and white.

your policies would lead to mass impoverishment of not only the middle class you detest but those relying on social welfare and basic services too.
the policies of neo-liberalism brought us property bubbles, crashes, bailouts, slash and burn, mass unemployment, a race to the bottom, poverty and misery - while at the same time the richest 300 people in Ireland increased their wealth from €50billion to €84billion between 2010-2014.

Prime example of the absurdity of capitalism this evening - heard an add on the radio advising motorists who use the e-toll tag that they will no longer be able to use the tag at about half a dozen toll booths because two private companies who are making a financial killing out of Irish motorists and the Irish taxpayer couldn't negotiate a 'service agreement' - simple solution - take the private tolled roads into public ownership, tell the speculators to get stuffed and let people travel on the roads without having to pay tolls for it.
Maybe the above could be the next campaign for the Socialist Party (AAA)? It could be a great vote winner.

Getting rid of the pay cap for shinners is a step in the right direction towards their domestication and house training. They should have some discipline for when they are ready to join Fianna Fáil.

Your blinkered ideology would make neo liberalism seem attractive. Once again, the world does not break down into left wing good, everything else = right wing and bad. Most of us reside in the middle and can see the absurdity of both sides.

9 prangs and accidents in 9 years....

And answerable to no one.

More telling is SF getting the state to pay for their non civil service drivers was a bargaining chip wben there was a budget impasse. So SF passed a budget but made sure their veterans/activists get a bit of pork barrel. ....

So principled. ...

They couldn't beat the brits, but beating a panel seems to be no bother to them.

Revenue have major problems with SF economics as Health and Environment are adversely effected by dodgy cigarettes and bogey petrol, and the accountancy practice of hiding records on remote farms.

In filings sent to the Workplace Relations Commission, she says she was paid €2,239 a month for a 40-hour week. This amounts to around €26,868, which is some €10,000 less than the average industrial wage.

Sinn Fein are not the only party with dubious dealings with their party workers

Fine Gael admits tax evasion over period of 9 years

You are correct to highlight this episode - but it is also a case of pot and kettle there hammer
You miss a key point. The Meath Brigade Sinn Fein are organised like an army, with command, control and coordination being held by the Higher Coomand in Dublin and Belfast. Meath Fine Gael would be rank amateurs by comparison anmd certainly would not have the same slush funds or the same muscle to enforce poarty diuscipline and strategy.
Toibin values his knees. Ms Booth better increase her insurance payments. Interesting name Booth. As in Booth Hill
