Fianna Fáil cannot be trusted - Pearse Doherty TD

20 September, 2016 - by Pearse Doherty TD


Sinn Féin Finance Spokesperson Pearse Doherty TD has said that "Fianna Fáil cannot be trusted to provide a stable government."

Speaking from Leinster House today, Deputy Doherty said;

"The pretence that Fianna Fáil could somehow provide a stable government would be laughable if it wasn’t so serious.

"Micheál Martin is presiding over a party whose major policies change depending on the direction of the wind.

"Take the issue of water charges for example. They have spun so hard on this issue that they no longer know if they are coming or going. 

"The reality is that Fianna Fáil's position on water charges is all over the place.

"Last week they were for abolition, but this week they have publicly stated that they will vote against a motion to abolish when it comes before the Dáil next week.

"What part of the Sinn Féin motion does Fianna Fáil disagree with?

"The real issue here is that Fianna Fáil are not actually in favour on abolition. It was just something that sounded good to their PR people last week.

"Fianna Fáil cannot be trusted on water charges or anything else."
