HERE comes a massive change for any political party…Sinn Féin said what we are all thinking!
At last week’s Ard Fheis Mary Lou McDonald called for corrupt banker types to face jail terms. Of course, this was on a weekend when 100,000 people were on the streets of Dublin protesting at the Government’s handling of the economic crisis as the Celtic Tiger breathed its last.
Sinn Féin representatives joined in (rather too joyously at times) for the fat cats to have their teeth and salaries capped while serving jail time.
But, could it be that McDonald has a cunning plan? With the barristers staring gloomily at the end of the inquiry/tribunal gravy train, the newly anointed Sinn Féin Vice President was actually extending a helping a hand to the barrister retirement fund.
