Greg N.I. has many good politicians without a record as for those who do they use their experience to condemn the violence and terrorists ways of the past. SF however has many political innovations to offer far and above the offerings of some politicans. The point people miss is simple,you cannot have a private army to be used as a threat if you do not get your way.
If the conservative party had a military wing it would not be tolerated, why should SF have one? The rules of democracy apply to N.I. just as it does to any democratic country throughout the world.
