Cameron needs to 'shape up' in talks – Adams
Sinn Féin Leader Gerry Adams TD said today that the British prime minister David Cameron needs to shape up if progress is to be made in the current all-party talks.
The Louth TD was speaking as he led a Sinn Féin delegation into a round-table meeting of the political parties and the Bitish and Irish governments.
Gerry Adams said:
“David Cameron’s government has failed to engage in good faith in this negotiation.
“This is the prime minister who reneged on the Pat Finucane Inquiry.
“He is also hiding his government’s involvement in the conflict behind the shield of ‘national security’.
“He has stripped billions from the Exceutive’s block grant and his government has failed to acknowledge its responsibilities to the political process.
“They have failed to honour commitments made in the Good Friday and other agreements such as Acht na Gaeilge and the Bill of Rights.
“So the British prime minister needs to shape up if progress is to be made in these negotiations over the next couple of days.”
