The Sunday Business Post (Letters page), 29 February 2004:

McDowell and Sinn Féin finance

In his latest tirade against Sinn Féin, Michael McDowell has failed (again) to produce a scintilla of evidence of financial irregularities by SF. On the contrary, if one examines the publications of SF or the obvious lack of wealth of its members, it is clear that its political profile is driven by the work of its members, not by big finance.
This is in stark contrast to his own party and his partners, Fianna Fail, some of whose members have lavish lifestyles and some of whom have been before the various tribunals.

McDowell's sole `evidence' comes from secret security briefings, which, conveniently, cannot be challenged.

Would these be the same security sources who did such a great job in investigating the Dublin/Monaghan bombings, the killing of Seamus Ludlow, the killing of Cllr Eddie Fullerton, etc? Maybe his `information' comes from the PSNI, which raided the SF offices in Stormont, thus bringing down the NI Executive, only to drop all charges related to the much hyped `Stormont Spy Ring'?

It seems to me that the real reason for McDowell's outbursts, which give comfort to Ian Paisley and anti-Agreement unionists, is the increasing number of Irish people, north and south, who are fed up with empty promises and the corruption of the big business-backed establishment parties.
