As if there was any doubt, the shameless behaviour of those organising and leading Bobby Storey's funeral extravaganza reminds us that what goes these days by the name of Sinn Fein is not a political party.

Sinn Fein is linked to a terrorist organisation, but now pretends to be something else.

It indoctrinates its members, forms a closed, totalitarian society and persuades its members that the ethical codes of society at large are irrelevant. Its members learn to act at all times selflessly in the interests of their group and follow orders unquestioningly.
