Raise your hand if you like arrogant people. I doubt if there are many readers raising their hands. There is something deeply unpleasant about arrogance. There's something ugly about that sense of "superiority and exaggerated self-importance", as well as the selfishness and smugness.
Back in January and February Sinn Fein president Mary Lou McDonald used the word "arrogant" when she blasted other political parties in the Irish Republic for denying her party a place in the next coalition government.
In fact it wasn't enough for her to say they were "arrogant", she described them as "incredibly arrogant".
"Arrogant" and "arrogance" are much-used words in the Sinn Fein lexicon, and arrogance is an accusation they often make about others.
In January 2017, when Martin McGuinness resigned as Deputy First Minister and collapsed devolution, he said that Sinn Fein would not tolerate the arrogance of Arlene Foster and the DUP.
Indeed, Sinn Fein kept repeating the accusation throughout that year, even expanding it into "deep-seated arrogance".
In May 2018 Sinn Fein was back at it again and accused Arlene Foster of "the same old arrogance" when she said that Irish nationalism was "narrow and exclusive".
Last year the party even produced a local government election video with Michelle O'Neill telling people to "stand firm against the arrogance of the DUP" by voting Sinn Fein.
However, the events surrounding the Bobby Storey funeral have exposed the arrogance of Sinn Fein itself in a way we have not seen for some time.
On April 9 Michelle O'Neill said about Covid-19: "The rules are there for a reason. Everybody needs to follow the rules. No one is exempt from the rules."
Yet Sinn Fein did not follow the rules and, obviously, believed its was exempt from the rules.
The rules were for everybody else, but not for them.
It was pure arrogance and everyone knew it. The sense of superiority and the exaggerated self-importance were there to be seen.
As usual, Sinn Fein tried to brazen it out, because that is its default position.
Sinn Fein will always try to brazen it out. It will display no shame, exhibit no embarrassment and admit no fault. It is in the DNA of Sinn Fein - Do Not Admit.
Remember how long it took for Sinn Fein to come to terms with Barry McElduff's horrendous Kingsmill tweet? Remember how long it took for him to resign? And remember how soon he was back as an elected representative?
That same arrogance came through in the early responses from Sinn Fein about the Bobby Storey funeral, with Mary Lou McDonald attempting to deflect legitimate criticism by dismissing it as "political point-scoring".
It's a tactic the party often uses, as if the issue did not deserve an answer and merited only disdain.
That's why it was right for unionist politicians Sammy Wilson and Doug Beattie to call out Sinn Fein arrogance.
Both the DUP and the UUP were on message there and they were saying what a lot of people - unionist, nationalist and other - were thinking.
Sinn Fein must have hoped that it would all go away and the spotlight would move somewhere else, but the focus moved to Belfast City Council and the preferential treatment for the Storey funeral at Roselawn. It was one rule for every other family that day and special treatment for Sinn Fein.
That episode has yet to be properly explored and explained, but there can be no doubt about the arrogance of Sinn Fein in expecting preferential treatment and, presumably, asking for it.
The world of Sinn Fein is an Orwellian world, where everyone is equal, but some are more equal than others - as long as it's them.
Twenty years ago when Sinn Fein and IRA personnel were discovered in Colombia, the home of the Farc narco-terrorists, one Irish newspaper carried an article on the Sinn Fein response under the headline 'Sinn Fein arrogance'. Twenty years later that arrogance is still there.
And that's the irony of it all: the party that accuses every other large party of arrogance is actually more guilty than any other of that very thing.
