Publish four year plan and call election – Ó Snodaigh

22 November, 2010 - by Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD

Sinn Féin Social Protection Spokesperson Aengus Ó Snodaigh has said the Government has no mandate to implement its planned cuts to social welfare payments and should call a general election immediately.

Speaking at a protest at Leinster House today Deputy Ó Snodaigh the Government should publish its four year plan and call a general election to let the people decide on it.

Deputy Ó Snodaigh said:

“Sinn Féin will not tolerate social welfare cuts in the upcoming budget. The Government, as usual, is targeting the least well off to pay for this mess.

“But they have absolutely no mandate for any of what they are doing. The Green Party should have pulled out of Government today and allowed for an immediate general election.

“Instead we have the bizarre situation where a coalition partner has admitted that it will pull out of Government but it will first help it to pass its budget.

“The Government should now publish its four plan, call an immediate general election and let the people decide.” ENDS
