Rank hypocrisy of Sinn Fein

Sir -- Am I alone in thinking that it's rank hypocrisy for Sinn Fein to claim that the absence of one TD in a multi-seat constituency constitutes a democratic deficit when their own elected MPs in Northern Ireland, the sole representatives in single-seat constituencies, refuse to take their seats at Westminster?
