All to play for in final three weeks – McDonald

13 May, 2012 - by Mary Lou McDonald TD


Speaking today the Sinn Féin Deputy Leader Mary Lou McDonald said: “with less than three weeks to go before polling day it is all to play for.”

Deputy McDonald said:

“There is just under three weeks to go until polling day. The electorate is only beginning to engage with this very important issue. We are getting very positive feedback on the doors. This weekend’s opinion poll tells us that there is all to play for in the coming weeks.

“Sinn Féin will continue to put forward the case for an alternative to austerity and an alternative to the Austerity Treaty. We will make the case on the airwaves and on the doors that we need a change of direction.

“Four years of austerity has demonstrated one thing, that you cannot cut your way out of a recession. We need investment in jobs and growth.

“While the consensus for cuts parties believe that even more austerity is the way forward Sinn Féin believes that people deserve better. On May 31st we have an opportunity to say no to austerity and yes to investment in jobs and growth.”
