No Surprise that FG support right wing treaty – Ó Snodaigh
“It should come as no surprise that Fine Gael should support such a right wing Treaty. It demonstrates, if any demonstration were needed, why a Fine Gael led government would be no dofferent to the current Fianna Fáil led government.
“Both are right wing parties, trading in outdated and discredited right wing policies, at the domestic and EU level.
“Contrary to Enda Kenny's claim today that the Lisbon Treaty is essential to our economic recovery, ratifying this Treaty will make the recession worse. It contains many of the same right wing economic policies that have led Ireland and the EU into recession in the first place.
“The Irish and European economies urgently need a change of direction and a change of policy. Believing that the Lisbon Treaty will lead us on to the road of economic recovery is just like believing that Enda Kenny could run the country any better than Brian Cowen.” ENDS
