Kenny now an austerity adviser to EU elite - Gerry Adams TD

20 March, 2015 - by Gerry Adams TD


Sinn Féin Leader Gerry Adams has criticised remarks by Taoiseach Enda Kenny about Greece at an EU summit in Brussels.

Gerry Adams said:

"Enda Kenny's remarks regarding Greece at the EU summit in Brussels show that he has moved from being the architect of austerity in Ireland to an austerity adviser to the EU elite.

"Greece and Ireland have both had unfair debt burden imposed upon their citizens but Mr Kenny has consistently taken the side of the EU elite and the ECB against the people of Greece.

“This approach is not in the interests of Irish citizens and is motivated by the government’s own narrow electoral interests.

“Enda Kenny is now clearly acting as a representative of the EU elite in Ireland, rather than as representatives of the Irish people."
