Sinn Féin joined the SDLP, UUP and the DUP today. Not in a power sharing executive but rather in the list of parties asked to stand aside in West Tyrone by Dr. Kieran Deeney. Mr. Deeney's advances were given short shift by Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams. What seems to strange to me is that, if Mr. Deeney is as strong a candidate as he claims to be, why is he afraid of little electoral competition. The doctor would be better served trying to attract the electorate to his message rather than trying to eliminate the compeition.
