Ok, there seems to be a lot of confusion as to whether Sinn Fein are left wing or right wing.
From their web site they come off very socialist, but they also have a line in there about Natioanlism and Socialism co-existing (choice of words was perhaps an unfortunate coincidince).
When they talk about Nationalism I assume they are just worried about England's invovlment in the affairs of the island of Ireland, not far-right ideas about mis-treating immigrants etc.
I think the "are they or aren't they" test would be to find out what their attitude to immigration is.
Anyone have any idea?
