Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Adams not interested in Fianna Fáil smear campaign

15 February, 2011 - by Pat Sheehan


Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has said that instead of offering the public solutions to the serious problems which the Fianna Fáil Government created, they are engaged in a smear campaign against Sinn Féin.

Speaking on radio this lunchtime Mr. Adams said Sinn Féin is not interested in negative campaigning. Sinn Féin is bringing forward practical proposals and solutions.

Mr. Adams said:

“Micheál Martin is engaging in a smear campaign against myself and Sinn Féin in an effort to mask the fact that Fianna Fáil offers no real solutions and no real proposals to kick-start the economy, sort out the banks and get people working.

“Fianna Fáil wrecked the economy and has no real solutions to the mess they created.

“People are struggling to cope with the affects of Fianna Fáil’s budget and austerity measures. There are almost half a million people on the dole, thousands are emigrating and our health and education systems are in tatters.

“Sinn Féin is offering solutions including an end to taxpayers’ money being poured into toxic banks, and a new budget to reverse the Government’s savage cuts, the abolition of the universal stimulating the economy and investment in jobs.” ENDS
