Sinn Fein are to unveil a fanancial package constituting £1bn of cuts tomorrow. Watch discussion here:

Sinn Fein to reveal savings plan - Northern Ireland, Local & National - Belfasttelegraph.co.uk

All partisan comments to one side, I think this shows that the old image of Sinn Féin as a fically clueless party are not sustainable. THe above are the actions of a financially respoonsible political party, making the tough choices that will keep the six counties' finances on a much better footing than our own.

I wonder will double jobbing etc for sf party members take a hit in their money saving exercise.

We are over spending by €20 Billion per annum

And the best SF can come with it is a measly 1 in cuts!!!:rolleyes:

That just does not cut the mustard Factual.

Its worth point ing out that no SF rep takes home more than the AIW.
As a matter of interest - what is the average industrial wage?

The average in west Belfast? East Tyrone? RoI average? Or the UK average?

And is that before, or including, expenses?

Do you have that actual figure as no one from sf appears to know what amount it really is.
Regardless of where the remainder goes ( into the party or otherwise) double jobbing keeps some one else out of a job and more than likely in or very close to POVERTY.
Remember when true socialists preferred to spread the wealth.
Remember when you could`nt be a member of SF and a LANDLORD.

For a fiscally clueless party they certainly make sense in the North. Then of course they are active in a part of the Island with a better health service, a much smaller deficit and a whole lot more going for them. I think the "fiscally clueless" are well and truly entrenched in the South.

Still can`t find anything in relation to double jobbing etc.
Still don`t know what SF`s average industrial wage is either.

Maybe you could enlighten us all in what the Average Industrial Wage is in the UK.
Bet its a good bit more than what the Average is in the Bogside or Ardoyne.

They have now come up with the idea of politicians taking a pay cut.
So that won`t effect them as they give the excess to the party, don`t they ?
Not that big a sacrifice compared to the ordinary man or woman on the street who don`t have the second wage or the income from property rented out.
Still don`t know what their aiw is.

The AIW is computed with respect to Ireland-rather than Britain-it is the arithmetic average industrial wage in Ireland.

Sinn Féin's economy paper is set out here

http://www.sinnfein.ie/files/SFeconomypro.pdf

Many of the initatives are bold. All are radical. They set out savings without affecting public services.

In particular, they argue that the six county executive should be able to tax and borrow.

And that high paid public servants should have a pay freeze.
