Adams is the bearded Farage and SF is now Ireland's Ukip
Gerry Adams's repeated calls for a border poll shows just how devoid he is of ideas
Last Monday, Sinn Fein managed to drag itself away from calling for border polls for just long enough to allow it to issue a press release welcoming the news that Fianna Fail will shortly finalise its white paper on a reunified Ireland.
I say "welcome", but get a few lines into the statement and you soon see that Sinn Fein is anything but welcoming of this important move by Micheal Martin.
The release was put out on behalf of Matt Carthy, who, we are informed, is Sinn Fein's MEP for the Midland, North and West Euro-constituency and also chair of its United Ireland project.
