    Default Sinn Fein - hit out at X Factor

    Republican Sinn Féin hit out at the reality television show “X Factor” for cynically using an Irish contestant to promote British Imperial misadventures throughout the world. A spokesperson for the organisation said that it was morally repugnant that producers would pressurise contestants into endorsing foreign occupation.

    On the latest edition of the show, contestants including County Londonderry’s Eoghan Quigg were forced to perform a song in tribute to those who have invaded Ireland, Afghanistan and Iraq, and countless other countries, and displaced and murdered the native populace.

    County Derry-based Director of Publicity for Republican Sinn Féin, Richard Walsh, said: “It has also come to light that X Factor forbade Kevin Lynch’s Hurling Club from using the name of the club on banners in support of Eoghan Quigg. Instead, the banner is in the name of ‘Dungiven hurlers’.

    “X Factor on the one hand are promoting British aggression throughout the globe, and on the other are shunning a man who selflessly sacrificed himself on hunger strike in support of the right of the Irish people to govern themselves. He resisted British occupation through all means at his disposal.

    “Concerns have also been expressed that all contestants will now be forced to wear Britain’s Imperial Poppy, which is soaked in the blood of countless men, women and children. Such a move would be a further insult to the heroic memory of Kevin Lynch.”

    Makes my blood boil, the 'Lad' stays in Northern Ireland which I believe is a part of the United Kingdom? Why do they have to bring politics into a family show? Would Sinn Fein really want him to be stuck in a republican club on Saturday nights, singing songs about dead hunger strikers, instead of being given a crack at the big time? Shameful the way they will exploit youth to further their aims.

    They're also opposed to troops returning from Afghanistan marching through Belfast.

    I'm sure they'd rather we celebrate the drug pushing mafia called the IRA. Which was one of the most vicious terrorist organisations around. It still makes me shudder when I see Gerry Adams and Martin McGuiness in 'Government'. They should be rotting in jail for all the murders they committed/ordered.

    I've lived in Belfast for 30 years and it is disgusting to see terrorists in government. All we have had is bomb scares throughout Northern Ireland from Republicans unhappy about our troops coming home parades!

    They all seem to forget that if it wasn't for our troops in WWII we would all be speaking German right now. Me and the wife wear our poppies with pride.

    They don't mind sitting in our so called Government on big money dictating to the rest of us what we should or should not do, and slagging off the British, but are quite happy to put the Queen's head in their pockets.

    Leave the politics out of prime time TV and give the lad a chance!
