Sinn Féin - On Your Side

A vote for Fianna Fáil is a vote for Water Charges – Adams

14 September, 2015 - by Gerry Adams TD


Sinn Féin Leader Gerry Adams TD has said that Micheál Martin today provided people with a timely reminder that Fianna Fáil is a pro-Water Charges party.

Mr Martin told RTÉ radio this morning that Fianna Fáil agreed with domestic water charges as a "basic principle".

Gerry Adams said:

"Micheál Martin today provided people with a timely reminder that Fianna Fáil is a pro-Water Charges party.

"Domestic Water Charges was a Fianna Fáil idea in the first place and was provided for in the last Fianna Fáil-led Government's negotiations with the Troika.

"Fianna Fáil likes to give the impression that it is opposed to Water Charges and to Irish Water but this is a charade.

"It is clear from Micheál Martin's statement today that a vote for Fianna Fáil at the next election will also be a vote for the imposition of unjust and unfair domestic Water Charges.”
