Treat Sinn Féin like any other political party

So Gerry Adams had a $500 dinner plate fundraiser in New York and Mary Lou travelled to Oz business class?

Treat Sinn Féin like any other political party

And this is all considered disgraceful, absolutely disgraceful. Now for a tiny bit of balance. Did Enda Kenny not have a similar fundraising dinner in London recently, at £1,000 a plate? How did he travel to London ? Ecomomy class, yeah right?

How many times has our leader been abroad or any other minister for that matter? The costs to the Irish people for these trips, hotels, limos and ancillary expenses must be enormous.

The man who brought – in or tried to bring in – water charges is on €3,000-4,000 a week. Big Phil Hogan travelled to Brussels two years ago and in one day left the taxpayers with a bill of €9,000 - that’s a lot of pipe fixing.

I’m not affiliated to any political party, but the very obvious treatment of Sinn Féin by journalists is sickening. Please a little more balance.
