Adams lambasts Micheál Martin’s ‘ridiculous and misleading’ comments
Sinn Féin Leader Gerry Adams has today responded to comments made by Micheál Martin suggesting that Sinn Féin is reversing support for welfare reform in the north as tactical manoeuvre.
Gerry Adams said,
“The comments by Micheál Martin has again demonstrated his scandalous use of allegations of abuse for party political ends. He also has a tendency to make the most ridiculous and misleading comments on the workings of the institutions in the north.
“Monday was the day of the Final Reading of the Welfare Bill. Sinn Féin had sought to resolve the issue of the DUP reneging on their welfare commitments in the preceding week and over the Ard Fheis.
“The DUP refused to honour the agreement on welfare and Sinn Féin had no option but to block the legislation on Monday.”
