Greens acting in their own selfish interests – Ó Caoláin

10 October, 2009 - by Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD


Sinn Féin Dáil leader Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin has described this evening’s decision of the Green Party to endorse a new programme for Government as a missed opportunity to do the right thing by the Irish people and turf Fianna Fáil out of Government.

Speaking this evening after the results of an internal Green Party vote were published Deputy Ó Caoláin said:

“The Green Party is obviously terrified of the prospect of a general election. They had the opportunity today to do the right thing by the Irish people and turf Fianna Fáil out of Government. Instead they missed that opportunity and acted in their own selfish interests.

“They are now set to join with Fianna Fáil in imposing savage cutbacks that will hit the less well off the hardest while the parasites who caused the economic crisis are bailed out by NAMA.” ENDS
