Government has no moral conscience – Ó Snodaigh

13 May, 2010 - by Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD


Sinn Féin Spokesperson on Social and Family Affairs Aengus Ó Snodaigh has said this Government has no moral conscience after Minister Eamon Ó Cúiv today refused to rule out a cut in the old age pension.

Speaking today Deputy Ó Snodaigh said:

“Today’s refusal by Minister Ó Cúiv to rule out a cut in the old age pension shows that nobody is safe from the Government’s chopping block except maybe for the multi millionaires in our society.

“It is quite obvious that those with the lowest incomes in society remain in the Government’s sights. Rather than targeting those who can actually afford to contribute more to our economy this Government would rather target old age pensioners.

“Clearly this Government has no moral conscience.” ENDS
