Columnist seemingly fixated with Sinn Fein

Does Ruth Dudley Edwards donate to Sinn Fein? If not, I think she should, as she seems to make a living out of writing about them.

In the last four weeks, her column has featured the headlines, 'Awkward truth for SF', 'Irish language a weapon for SF', 'Call SF bluff on human rights' and 'SF desire to rewrite history'. And, of course, this is only a snapshot; it has been the same now for years.

I have no idea whether or not I agree with Ruth, as I only read the headlines and think same old, same old.

I do donate to the Belfast Telegraph by buying it every day and there is a limit to how often you can repackage the same old story and expect people to read it.

I, therefore, set Ruth a challenge: to write something refreshing and interesting for the next four weeks without mentioning Sinn Fein and I will continue with my donations.
