Kenny offers more inequality and hardship - Adams

11 October, 2015 - by Gerry Adams

Commenting on today's RTÉ interview with the Taoiseach, Sinn Féin Leader Gerry Adams TD said:

"In his interview today, the Taoiseach made it very clear that he has every intention of continuing with policies that have resulted an increasingly polarised and unequal society over the past five years.

"He gave no hope for those suffering from the chaos in our A&E departments or of dealing in any serious way with the spiralling housing crisis. These problems are a direct result of the policies of Mr Kenny's Government.

"The Taoiseach's remarks also perpetuated the falsehood that it is possible to reduce the overall tax take while increasing investment in frontline services.

"This approach means that high-earners will be the winners while average families and those citizens most dependent on public services will lose out yet again.

"Mr Kenny has characterised the forthcoming election as a choice between stability and chaos.

"However his own refusal over the past week to deal with the issue of the election date to the obvious discomfort of the Tánaiste, further exposed the chaos at the heart of this Government.

"Mr Kenny should stop the silly game-playing of recent days, resign and call a General Election now.

"Sinn Féin is ready for that and confident in our proposals to invest twice as much as the government in public services and the economy and to deliver a fair tax policy that benefits the majority in society."
