*************

One has to admit that a google search on Sinn Fein turns up more controversial articles over money than any other subject regarding the party in general.  Then of course there is the leader Mary Lou McDonald’s close family ties to the pharma industry.

Vote in Dail Eireann to extend Emergency Regulations took place on 2 June 2021.  It succeed by 5 votes.  6 votes would have defeated it (on the face of it – see further down)

Conveniently for the government the following 6 did not turn up to vote.  5 from Sinn Fein including the party leader and 1 from Social Democrats.  Both those parties voted en block against the motion.  What makes the whole vote questionable is that several members of the main parties did not turn up to vote either.  Did they know they would not be needed?  Did they know,  in advance, that the “missing 6” would be missing?  Interesting to see over the next few days what money will be spread around the country  and announced by the various TD’s, who always claim they got anything good that is going for their area – Irish politics of the past.  It may not be Irish politics for the present or the future.
