Sinn Féin the only party offering credible opposition to austerity - Seeley

30 April, 2015 - by Liam Mackle


Sinn Féin's Catherine Seeley has said Sinn Féin is the only party offering credible opposition to austerity. And she said the electorate won’t be conned by the pre-election bluster and rhetoric of the SDLP.

The Upper Bann councillor said; 

"Sinn Féin has been clear and consistent in our opposition to the austerity agenda of the Tory-led government. 

"Unlike Dolores Kelly and the SDLP, Sinn Féin have prioritised the protection of the poorest and most vulnerable in our society. 

"That is why during the Stormont House negotiations it was Sinn Féin who held out for protections for children with disabilities, adults with severe disabilities, the long-term sick and large families.

"In contrast the SDLP during the last term at Westminster failed to stop one single Tory cut. 

"Pre-election rhetoric and bluster from Dolores Kelly will not con the electorate. 

"Sinn Féin is the only party offering credible opposition to the British government's austerity agenda."
