Cllr Chris Andrews dismisses Fianna Fáil coalition motions
Sinn Féin's Chris Andrews has this morning dismissed motions from the Fianna Fáil Árd Fheis which claim Fianna Fáil won't go into government with Fine Gael after the next general election.
Cllr. Andrews said
"Fianna Fáil has been clamouring for a means to make itself relevant in recent weeks and this morning's motions highlight the party’s increasing sense of desperation.”
"The facts of the matter are that Fianna Fáil is static in the polls, is devoid of a policy platform and is ravaged with infighting.
"Not attributes one would associate with a party fit for government. Fianna Fáil's best, and probably only hope of getting into government are on the coattails of Fine Gael. It will be Sinn Féin's role to ensure that prospect doesn't become a reality".
"Whatever the result of a Fianna Fáil Árd Fheis motion - which the party leadership will just ignore anyway - a vote for Fianna Fáil at the next election will be a vote for Fine Gael".
