18 July, 2011 - by Gerry Adams TD


Sinn Féin president, Gerry Adams TD, today branded as “disgraceful” the remarks of Labour minister, Joan Burton about social welfare recipients.

“To suggest that working people choose to be unemployed when with half a million unemployed, there is no choice shows that the minister has lost touch with the reality of people’s lives,” he said.

Deputy Adams was speaking at his party’s review and planning meeting for its Leinster House team, which took place in Howth, Co Dublin today (Monday 18 July 2011)
