Taoiseach’s story simply beyond belief – Doherty

10 January, 2011 - by Pearse Doherty TD


Responding to the statement from Brian Cowen this evening Sinn Féin Finance Spokesperson Pearse Doherty has said it is beyond believe that the Taoiseach spent up to six hours in the company of Seán Fitzpatrick without discussing the situation at Anglo Irish Bank.

Deputy Doherty said:

“The statement from Brian Cowen this evening still leaves much to be answered. If Brian Cowen has nothing to hide then why has he never mentioned his golf outing with Seán Fitzpatrick up to this point? And why did he never mention before the phone call from Mr Fitzpatrick.

“It is simply beyond believe that the Taoiseach spent up to six hours in the company of Seán Fitzpatrick without discussing the situation at Anglo Irish Bank.

“This whole episode just highlights once again the cosy and inappropriate relationship between Fianna Fáil and senior bankers in this state.

“Rather than demanding bland statements from the Taoiseach the Green Party should pull the plug on this Government and allow for an immediate general election.” ENDS
