Only thing to be expected from a Fine Gael budget is more of the same – Morgan

3 November, 2009


Sinn Féin Finance Spokesperson Arthur Morgan TD has said there is no point in Fine Gael touring the state ahead of the publication of its pre-budget submission when everybody already knows what it will contain.

Deputy Morgan said the only thing the public can expect from a Fine Gael led coalition is more attacks on the least well off and public services while maintaining the status quo for the wealthy.

Speaking today after Enda Kenny announced a whirlwind tour of the state by his economics team Deputy Morgan said:

“Who does Enda Kenny think he’s kidding? There is no point in sending an economics team to travel the state in preparation of Fine Gael’s pre-budget submission when everybody already knows what it will contain.

“The only thing that the public can expect from a Fine Gael led coalition is more attacks on the least well off and public services while maintaining the status quo for the wealthy. They are not an alternative to Fianna Fáil. They represent a continuation of the same Fianna Fáil style policies that got us into this economic mess.” ENDS
