SF speaks too soon but Leo sticks to his principles

NEVER mind Pearse Doherty -- Sinn Fein has a new finance spokesperson.

A statement yesterday read: "Sinn Fein candidate/ TD has contrasted the pressure on homeowners with the bailout for banks."

"Joe/Jane Bloggs said: 'The current economic downturn, exacerbated by the austerity. . .'"

Fair play to candidate/TD/Joe/Jane Bloggs -- he/she/it doesn't pull any punches.

But the Shinners weren't the only ones having trouble. A statement from clever clogs Leo Varadkar mentioned "principle primary residences".

It should actually be "principal". Tut, tut, Leo.
