Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Root and branch reform of political and economic systems needed – Adams

12 January, 2011 - by Pat Sheehan, Westminster


Speaking ahead of the return of the Dáil this morning Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams said Fianna Fáil’s cosy relationship with speculators, developers and bankers such as Seán Fitzpatrick underpins the need for root and branch reform of the political and economic systems.

Mr Adams said:

“While the Taoiseach’s golf outing with Seán Fitzpatrick dominates the political news the Government will be drawing down the first of the loans from the EU/IMF dig out.

“This loan and its punitive rate will be paid for by Irish citizens whose interests are not served by this Government.

“Fianna Fáil’s cosy relationship with speculators, developers and bankers such as Seán Fitzpatrick underpins the need for root and branch reform of the political and economic systems.

“The Government should go.” ENDS
