Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams speaking in Dublin today as the Lisbon referendum campaign enters it’s final stages said, “This is a bad treaty negotiated by an incompetent government and I am calling on people to come out and reject it again on Friday.”
Mr. Adams said:
“This is a bad treaty negotiated by an incompetent government and I am calling on people to come out and reject it on Friday.
“The yes campaign have had to resort to negative campaigning and scaremongering because they know this is a bad deal for Ireland. And those leading the yes side are the same politicians and business people who have led this country and the European Union into the worst economic crisis in 60 years.
“If Lisbon goes through the Irish electorate will be handing decisions about Ireland’s future over to an EU elite and once you hand that power away it is next to impossible to get it back.
“Fianna Fáil Minister Mary Hanafin admitted this morning that the Lisbon Treaty was unchanged when she acknowledged that it was the same treaty.
"If you want change, at home and across Europe then vote no. If you want a fairer, more democratic, more social, more peaceful Ireland and Europe then vote no. If you want an end to this political establishment and their developer, banker and big business friends then vote no." ENDS
