Ard Fheis 2015 – Coalition- Cllr Eoin Ó Broin
Eoin Ó Broin Dublin Mid-West Sinn Féin spoke strongly in favour of Motion 52 on the clár.
The next general election could be the most important election in the history of the state.
It could be a game changer.
For the first time in generations we have the opportunity to break the Fianna Fail - Fine Gael stranglehold on southern politics.
Decades of corruption, incompetence and greed can be brought to an end.
The two tier economy and society perpetuated by Michael Martin, Enda Kenny and Joan Burton can be transformed.
We can start to build an Ireland of equals, a united Ireland, a better fairer Ireland.
But this can only happen if Sinn Féin makes a clear and unambiguous statement that we will not under any circumstances support a government led by Fianna Fáil or Fine Gael.
Ireland needs a new type of politics.
We need a new model of social and economic development.
We need a left led government in Leinster House that breaks with the poverty of ambition of the past.
Motion 52 sets out clearly a progressive strategy for coalition.
If Sinn Féin can lead a government that invests in a fair recovery, in secure and well paid jobs, in universal public services, in strong and vibrant communities, in a real republic that is committed to ending poverty and inequality – then and only then should we be willing to take up residence in Government buildings.
If you believe that a better fairer Ireland is possible.
If you want Sinn Féin to play our part in building that better Ireland then support motion 52 and tell every single voter you meet that as far as Sinn Féin are concerned the days of Fianna Fail and Fine Gael running the south of our country and well and truly over.
It is time for a real republican government a Sinn Féin led government.
