Election is a choice between the Fine Gael/Labour chaos or a progressive Sinn Féin led government - Gerry Adams TD
The Sinn Féin Ard Chomhairle met today to discuss the party’s recently launched housing policy and to finalise major policy documents on Health and Childcare. The Ard Chomhairle also held discussions about forthcoming elections.
Speaking at the Ard Chomhairle Sinn Féin President, Gerry Adams TD said;
“The Tanaiste has said that the coming General Election will be a battle of ideas between Fine Gael and Labour. This is laughable.
“Labour have rolled over on every principle that it enunciated during the 2011 election campaign and betrayed their mandate.
“The Labour leader went as far as to say that Labour and Fine Gael share the common vision for the country, for which I presume she means the state. This is insightful.
“It is clear their shared, common vision includes the continued chaos in health and housing with lengthening housing waiting lists, growing homelessness and the continued scandal of trolley waits.
“The real choice will be between the failed policies of Labour, Fine Gael or a progressive government led by Sinn Féin. Such a government will end water charges and the family home tax and invest in prosperity and quality public services.”
