McDonald – Fianna Fáil leader has a brass neck

20 February, 2011


Sinn Féin Deputy Leader Mary Lou McDonald has said “Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin has a brass neck saying that the consensus that the economic fundamentals were sound should have been challenged. Does he seriously think that the entire country has been asleep and we have all forgotten that it was Fianna Fáil Ministers in his government who were repeating this mantra up until very recently.”

Ms. McDonald said:

"Micheál Martin has a brass neck saying that the consensus that the economic fundamentals were sound should have been challenged. Does he seriously think that the entire country has been asleep and we have all forgotten that it was Fianna Fáil Ministers in his government who were repeating this mantra up until very recently.

“There is no point in Micheál Martin acknowledging Fianna Fáil’s mistakes when it is the exact same policies he is putting before the people in this General Election. It is Fianna Fáil’s disastrous policies that have brought the economy to the brink of economic ruin and it is their policies which would risk sovereign default if they are now implemented.” ENDS
