Wake up you 'Moby Dicks'
Madam – Your correspondent John Drennan (Sunday Independent, March 9, 2014) tells us that "the Moby Dicks", those angry at the party political sphere and thinking of voting for the independents and Sinn Fein, are a growing powerhouse in Irish politics.
The Irish people, both north and south, need to get real about Sinn Fein. The Moby Dicks must begin to realise that, rather than being regarded as shrewd and discerning in backing Sinn Fein, they will ultimately find themselves short-changed.
There is very little of substance to Sinn Fein. It is essentially a propaganda-based party whose primary purpose is to create an impression of having winning arguments. Most of their arguments wouldn't stand the test of any rigorous questioning.
