"(incomprehensible gobbeldygook).....I want to welcome all of you here to this very unique gathering, the Ard Fheis of the only all-Ireland political party on this island......"
Well it would be rather silly being an all-Ireland political party on any other gawdamm Island but actually it isint even true.
The Greens and The Socialist Party have offices and run candidates in both Northern Ireland and the Republic
"Sinn Fein has become the largest pro-Agreement party in the north"
"And most importantly the right of Northerners to have representation and participation in political institutions in Dublin continues to be withheld"
"Unionists fear that if given the chance republicans and nationalists would treat them as second-class citizens. We would not, and we will not. The days of second-class citizens are over"
Ummmmmm REALLLLY well what about.....
"neo-unionist elements in the south serve only their own narrow interests which in some cases are fundamentally anti-republican and pro-partitionist"
Since he obviously doesnt have much time for Unionists (Neo or otherwise) in the South why would Northern ones expect to be treated any differently
"Over 27,000 people are languishing on waiting lists. Staff in Accident and Emergency departments are struggling to cope"
"The downside of the 100 years of Sinn Féin is that we have yet to achieve our objectives"
But the best bit of all if his choice of terminology to describe the opposing criminal gangs in Northern Ireland one lot are "Unionist death squads" which is fair enough but rather than referring to their oponents as "Nationalist death squads" he chooses the term "army"
Now unless Im very much mistaken
So which Garda station should I ring ?
