Poll: we don't believe Bertie on Sinn Fein


DANIEL McCONNELL

MOST people believe Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern, will do a deal with Sinn Fein to remain in power rather than go into opposition, a nationwide Sunday Independent telephone poll reveals.

The poll, conducted this weekend, found 62 per cent did not believe Mr Ahern when he said he would not form a Government that was dependent on Sinn Fein support, with just 38 per cent believing him.

Last week, Mr Ahern appeared to make a u-turn on his previous position by indicating he would deal with Gerry Adams's party. He said: "I don't think it would be reasonable for somebody to go in and say that you wouldn't take support from a party."

Fine Gael leader, Enda Kenny, reacted by saying that the Taoiseach's history of doing side deals with Sinn Fein showed that "he cannot be trusted on the issue".

On Friday, Mr Ahern insisted that he would not "form a Government that is dependent on Sinn Fein votes". Previously, Mr Ahern had said that under no circumstances would he deal with Sinn Fein.

Meanwhile, there is now a growing belief that the finances of senior IRA figures such as Thomas 'Slab' Murphy will not now be investigated.

This follows the surprise announcement last week that the North's Assets Recovery Agency is to be abolished, suspected to be part of an arrangement to secure Sinn Fein/IRA support for policing in the North.

It is all coming together nicely, now for the Pork, the Vermeer to surface via a confession box, symbolism of absolution.
