WITH reference to the Donegal South West by-election, Martina Devlin (Irish Independent, November 11) intimates just one strand in the sheaf of what is so absurd about this current Government and its contempt for democratic representation.
Not satisfied with its heroics to date, it has recast Sinn Fein as the saviour of the Republic.
The last time I witnessed such legitimacy bestowed on Sinn Fein was at a Shane McGowan concert; at least there was a bit of craic there and I didn't have to worry about waking up the next morning with the singer as my Taoiseach.
