SF to debate FF – Is the Lisbon Treaty Good for the Economy

23 September, 2009 - by Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD


Sinn Féin EU Affairs Dáil Spokesperson Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD will debate Fianna Fáil TD Timmy Dooley tomorrow (Wed Sep 23rd) at 7pm in the Oak Room in Buswells Hotel on Molesworth Street in Dublin on the proposition – ‘Is the Lisbon Treaty Good for the Economy’. Irish Times Journalist and Author Deaglán de Bréadún will chair the debate.

As the second Lisbon referendum campaign enters its final phase the debate is now sharply focussing on if and how the Lisbon Treaty will be good for the Irish and European economies. Tonight’s debate offers the media and the public an opportunity to listen to two very different views and put their questions to both TDs.

Sinn Féin Deputy Aengus Ó Snodaigh will argue that the Lisbon Treaty will impact negatively on the Irish economy by bringing down wages, farming incomes and undermining our public services. He will also debate the elephant in the room of this public debate – can a political party who, since taking the reigns of government in 1997, has recklessly used the Irish economy as its own electioneering fund, blew the boom, inflated the bust and now finally intends to bankrupt the state with NAMA really be trusted on Lisbon?
