Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Terrible Government out of ideas and out of time – Adams

29 September, 2010 - by Pat Sheehan, Westminster


Speaking at the return of the Dail, Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams said the Government was out of ideas and out of time and should call outstanding by-elections.

He announced a major Sinn Féin rally in Dublin on 4th December to pressurise the Government in advance of the budget.

Gerry Adams said:

“This government has no mandate for what it’s doing. Half a million people are unemployed, health services are being shut down across Ireland. Despite serial announcements there is no strategy to get Ireland back to work or begin economic recovery.

“This government is out of ideas and out of time. They need to stop running away from the people and to call the three outstanding by-elections.

“It is time we got rid of this terrible government. Sinn Féin won’t let them off the hook. Pearse Doherty takes the government to court on October 18th to demand that the Donegal South West by-election goes ahead.

“We will keep them under pressure in the Oireachtas.

“Sinn Féin is calling on people across Ireland to take to the streets of Dublin on 4th December to pressurise the government in advance of the budget. It’s time to make a stand.” ENDS
