Basher Bruton engages in futile and failed anti-republican agenda

14 April, 2004

Responding to the latest outburst from failed Fine Gael leader John Bruton Sinn Féin Dáil leader Caoimhghin Ó Caoláin said: "Deputy Bruton continues to engage in competition with Minister McDowell for the prize of Sinn Féin-basher of the week. It is all quite futile. Both of them know that the IRA cannot be wished away. They also know that no party has done more than Sinn Féin to ensure that the peace process succeeds and that armed force in Irish politics becomes a thing of the past. It is a pity that he is neither big enough as a man or politician to acknowledge this fact. Deputy Bruton should leave it to those actually engaged in the peace process to deal with the major difficulties we all face, rather than returning to a failed anti-republican agenda."ENDS
