Adams says Government should go

16 January, 2011 - by Pat Sheehan, Westminster


At a packed selection convention in Letterkenny Padraig MacLochlainn was this afternoon chosen to be Sinn Féin’s general election candidate for Donegal North East.

Speaking at the convention and commenting on Brian Cowen’s decision to continue as Fianna Fáil leader and as Taoiseach Gerry Adams called for an early general election.

He said:

“The question of who leads Fianna Fail is a matter for Fianna Fail but the question of who governs the state should be for citizens to decide.

“The obvious divisions within this government, the failure of leadership by the Taoiseach and Cabinet, and the bad decisions and policies being pushed through in the Finance Bill, have stripped this government of any authority.

“The longer it stays in power the greater the damage that is being done to the economy and to our international reputation. This government should go.” ENDS
