Gerry Adams (@GerryAdamsSF) confirms he will stand down as leader of Sinn Fein in the coming year. Support or oppose him, he's the most historically significant Irish politician of my lifetime — by a distance. #SFAF17
Niall is a long time removed in his Washington DC perch, but still friendly to the Shinners.

As Drucker said, Hume.

Adams doesn't even deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence as John Hume.

In 100 years time Gerry Adams will be in Irish History books.

Mads Duffs will not.

If Jarry does run for President, will he declare his British MOD pension before Baldy Gallagher brings it up?

Thought not.

MM puts the boot in to SF as Adams announces his intention to step down.

Quote:
FIANNA Fail leader Micheal Martin has insisted there are “no new faces” in Sinn Fein as Gerry Adams prepares to set out his plans to step down as president of his party.

Speaking at the Fianna Fail president’s dinner in Dublin, Mr Martin said Sinn Fein has always been about putting the Provisional IRA first and insisted a new leader will not change this policy.

“They will change their leader, but the core of the Provisional movement’s approach to politics remains and has been constantly reaffirmed by all of their prospective leaders,” he said.

Mr Martin said Mr Adams’ successors, who include Sinn Fein vice president Mary Lou McDonald, have remained loyal to republican movement in spite of revelations of criminality, sex abuse and a barrage of bullying allegations.

“So please, spare us the idea that we are getting a new departure or a new generation from Sinn Fein. Instead of wasting time about their future political strategies, they need to be held to account for their actions today,” he said.

Mr Martin said there would be a “huge amount of overblown commentary” about how Mr Adams’ decision to step aside would be a “major turning point” for Sinn Fein.

However, the Fianna Fail leader said this is “simply not true”.

“Today’s Sinn Fein has always been about putting the Provisional movement first. The party is much more than the person and the party remains as unreformed and as unsuitable for government as ever,” he added.
