Sinn Féin And The European Union


The demand to leave the EU, and eventually the enthusiastic embrace of rule from Brussels, came as Sinn Féin fully embraced constitutionalism in the 1990s.

Alongside its effective acceptance of Partition under the Good Friday Agreement, Sinn Féin subtly altered its position on the EU.

In 1994 it was praising the potential for “progressive change” in Ireland initiated by European “social charter,” and was calling for increased structural funding.

By the time of the next European elections in 1999, one of those channelling Antonio Gramsci had devised the slogan of “critical engagement” with the EU.

So now, not only does Sinn Féin critically engage with Whitehall, the DUP, and even British royalty, it has become as much a devoted advocate of the EU as any of the other main Irish parties with the exception of the DUP.



Sinn Féin And The European Union : The Pensive Quill

It looks like the Former IRA Intelligence Chief & Political Prisoner Matt Treacy learnt the hard way that he was wasting his life in a "Shambles" & from that journey he has enlightened many people with his unique knowledge of the Provisional Movement.



Matt Treacy is a former Sinn Féin member and a former member of the Provisional IRA.

He published his memoir A Tunnel to the Moon: The End of the Irish Republican Armyin 2017.


Sinn Féin have described claims made by Treacy in the book "very malicious".


Biography

Treacy joined the Dublin brigade of the IRA in the 1980s.

After a raid he went on the run for two years after being released on bail.

In 1990 he was rearrested and jailed, spending four years in Portlaoise Prison. According to Treacy in 1997 he returned to the IRA and became a recrutement officer for the Dublin Brigade. He left the brigade when he says it disbanded in 2005.

He became the parliamentary assistant to TD Martin Ferris for a period.

Treacy says he fell out with Sinn Féin after party tried to force him to give part of his salary to the party and take the average industrial wage.

He claims the party said they would sack him if didn't make the donations. Sinn Féin claim the donations are voluntary.

However, in August 2017 he claimed in the Sunday Independent that he resigned after derogatory comments were made by Sinn Féin about Máiría Cahill in private.

Sinn Féin deny the allegations claiming he never raised the issue while a staff member.





"Treacy claims he "disengaged" with the "shambles" that was the Dublin Brigade within a year of taking up the post of parliamentary adviser."














Aide 'active in IRA while he worked in Dail for Sinn Fein' - Independent.ie

Ah well - at least for the Republicans who never got to see "Revenge being the Laughter of their Children" they can always roll around on the Floor laughing at this fukkin Moonbeam

Shane Mac Thomáis, Dublin

30 March 2014 Edition

Shane Mac Thomáis, Dublin | An Phoblacht


I haven't read the book, and I don't know if he penned the article about Mac Thomáis because they were mates, but he was still writing for An Phoblacht as late as 2014. I didn't realize Seanie and Shane were mates. Shane was a nice guy, but I didn't realize he was a Shinner.

I've said many times & it's been said on TV by grassroots party members of all Parties that they get disillusioned - especially at the Reception on doorways when Canvassing.

It looks like Matt was one of the many, many, many Shinners who plodded along for years + years in a loveless Marriage.

This is also happening in FF, FG & Labour.

The other smaller parties have had to change their names so often that you can't keep up & are also split riven, the Independents are terrified of Elections due to the Cost.

The entire Body Politic is like the Banks & Property Market- an unstable Basket Case...

As I've already said, I haven't read the book, but I read the review of the book on Politics.ie: Matt Treacy now alleges he quit SF over Mairia Cahill - Politics.ie. Is it any wonder why normal everyday working people disengage with politics?

Are we supposed to be discussing the article on the Pensivequill, Tracys book or Gerry Adams Tweets? Only Tracey knows whether or not he left because he didn't want to, as SF, the SWP and the SP maintained when they were all on 1%, take the Average Industrial Wage and invest the surplus into Community Projects and Community Cooperatives, whether he left a decade later because of the treatment meted out to Mairia Cahill, whether it was a combination of events which led to disillusionment over a prolonged period of time, or if the suicide of a close friend led him to put ideological disagreements aside, which would explain why he was still writing for An Phoblacht as late as 2014. Suicide can affect people in different ways. I wasn't what one would describe as a close friend of Shane Mac Thomáis, but I think I knew him well enough to say that nobody could say, even in hindsight, that they saw it coming. The shoe simply didn't fit. I dunno..


I'm still trying to figure out how the rabidly Anti-Irish Nationalist Socialist Party hitched a ride on the Catalonian Nationalist bandwagon: Solidarity support self determination for Catalonia but not ...

I don't accept that there is any comparison between our relationship with London and our relationship with Brussels. I haven't posted on the Quill for about 6-7 years, and I'm not sure what the deal is with regard to posting the entire article, but the full article would have made for an interesting thread and discussion.

The OP only refers to the Quill Article on Brexit- the Tweets are a comparator between a Traditional Anti EU SF'er & a ranting, raving Remainiac Turncoat.

A United Ireland will occur vis a vis Brexit & the break up of the bizarre + despicable Ziomatrix UK or through a Border Poll.

As I've said a Zillion times - you can only obtain a Border Poll with sufficient Nationalist Vote Share & this can only be achieved with Agreed Nationalist Candidates standing at Westminster - GAA All Stars, Mary McAleese TYPES etc.

SF & their fellow Homophile SDLP partners can only obtain a dire 41% Combined Nationalist Vote Share out of a potential 48%!

Nationalist Vote Share was over 44% back in 1999!

Goldman support for that Black & Tan Thuggery at the Polling Stations will swing a lot of Republicans towards Brexit.
