Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil are engaged in a farce that is impeding the work of the Dáil

30 March, 2016 - by David Cullinane TD


Sinn Féin TD David Cullinane has said the continued refusal by both Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil to talk to each other is a farce and is impeding TDs from doing their jobs.

Speaking from Leinster House today Deputy Cullinane said;

“It is now over a month since the election and we are continuing to witness the farce of Fine Gael and Fianna Fail refusing to talk to each, while both know any government will depend on their mutual support'

“The work in the Dáil that we were elected to do is being held to ransom by both parties that continue with the fiction that they can form a government without the support of the other. It has got to the ludicrous position where parties and independents spend days in backrooms talking about broadband for rural pubs rather than address in the Dáil the issue of 1600 homeless children in Dublin that continue to live in emergency accommodation.

“Fine Gael and Fianna Fail need to end this farce and come to the Dáil with a proposal for government that allows us all to get on with the work of addressing the crisis in health and housing and representing the constituents who put us there in the first place.”
