Sinn Fein's Michelle O'Neill at the funeral of Bobby Storey

Sinn Fein stands at the opposite end of the political spectrum to Donald Trump, but it could give him a run for his money in brazenly denying reality.

You can see from photos and footage of Bobby Storey’s funeral that coronavirus regulations and guidelines were broken. You can read the text outlining the rules on the Executive’s own website to be doubly certain.

But the party says you’re wrong. Sinn Fein upheld all official advice and rules. It stuck to the letter and the spirit of the law. Those are the ‘alternative facts’ it persists in pushing despite the fact that your own eyes tell you they’re a sham.
