Does SF represent the people or the louts?

Like most Irish people, I was deeply touched by the visit of Queen Elizabeth to our shores and to the genuine warmth shown by the Irish people. You could sense history in the making.

Sinn Fein claims it represents the ordinary people of Ireland.

The party now has to decide whether it represents the louts in Parnell Street or the majority of the population who extended the hand of friendship to an amazing and very pleasant 85-year-old woman and her husband.
