It's just, well, in this case it's a clear display of poor decision making. for a politician, that's a bad thing.

Poor decision making IS a bad thing for politicians right enough. But one would argue that tattoos and two fingered salutes aren't on a par with putting the country into hock for generations; letting the health care service be a money pit while being on a par with third world countries; allowing people die on our streets through homelessness (thankfully we don't suffer extremes of climate) and so on.

Still, there's no embarassing gifs you can show of that kind of stuff

In fairness Soundy the hyperbole is a bit over the top in that post.

I. There was always going to be a huge cost to the economy whether the banks were bailed out or not. Yes it could have been handled differently and more cost effectively but there was no way we were getting off scot free.

2. Our health system is a mess compared to what we think or want it to be, to compare it to a third world country is ludicrous.What would SF do differently bar get rid of inefficiencies which seems to be a catch all phrase every new minister for health swears by yet never is able to implement. Actually there was a SF guy on the last word the other night who wants to throw more money into it, after years of watching the problems escalate we can safely say just throwing money at it has not worked.

3. The people who are dying on the streets is not down to any government policy more so addiction issues, and in many cases their homelessness is due to being kicked out of the family home due to their actions surrounding these addictions. Tell me how SF would eliminate this type of homelessness?

There are enough things to hammer the government with without having to resort to such exaggeration which only results in people questioning the credibility of you or your party.

Sinn Fein currently backs the failed socialist regime in Venezuela where hospitals do not even have basic medicine, skilled doctors or equipment to give basic treatment to the starving citizens.

Sinn Fein also backed Tsipiras in Greece as he threatened to take Greece back to the stone age with more socialist crackpottery but then SF dropped him when he copped on when Tsipiras realised that burning his house down was not the best idea.

While SF were mis-managing Northern Ireland 54 homeless people died on the streets under their watch.
