Kenny is poacher turned gamekeeper on Greece - Adams

12 July, 2015 - by Gerry Adams TD


Sinn Féin Leader Gerry Adams TD has said Taoiseach Enda Kenny is a poacher turned gamekeeper in his pronouncements on the Greek debt crisis.

Gerry Adams said:

"The Taoiseach's comments today in supporting the hardline stance of eurozone finance ministers and his itemising of demands on the Government of Greece in advance of any agreement is incredibly arrogant.

 "Mr Kenny, representing another highly indebted state which is suffering drastic social consequences of austerity, is effectively acting as poacher turned gamekeeper.

"He famously told us that he would not face his EU counterparts with 'defaulter stamped on my forehead'. He has now become an advisor to the EU elites on how best to inflict austerity on other indebted states.

"His stance does not reflect the views of the vast majority of Irish people who wish to see Greece treated with fairness, dignity and respect."
