McDonald slams McEvaddy comments

20 February, 2009

Dublin Sinn Féin MEP Mary Lou McDonald has slammed this morning’s comments from Ulick McEvaddy in which he praised the ten members of the so-called ‘Golden Circle’.

Speaking ahead of her party’s Ard Fheis today Ms. McDonald said:

“Ullick McEvaddy's labelling of the Golden Circle as heroes is shameful. McEvaddy's praising of the Anglo Golden Circle demonstrates breathtaking arrogance and represents just how embedded the 1980’s golden circle culture remains in Irish politics and business alike.

“Given the damage that has been done as a result of Anglo’s irresponsible lending not only to business and home owners but to Ireland’s international reputation, McEvaddy's proposal to begin giving out 100% mortgages is an outrageous proposition.” ENDS
