Declare Fianna Fail illegal party

Sir -- Everybody but the most dyed-in-the-wool Fianna Fail voter knows the damage this party has inflicted on this country. First there was De Valera's "economic war" against Britain, which beggared the farming community and caused emigration through the Thirties and Forties.
Then there were the protectionist economic policies which sentenced another generation to the mail boat. We had the buying of the 1977 election with borrowed money, which led to two decades of economic depression. Then there is the list of corrupt FF politicians from the Sixties to the present day.
It is my firm belief that, for these egregious crimes and for once again beggaring this hard-working nation and now the final ignominy of giving away our economic sovereignty, Fianna Fail should be declared an illegal organisation under the Offences Against the State Act.
