Fine Gael’s time in power ‘a story of never-ending crises and monumental failures’ – Adams

14 September, 2017 - by Gerry Adams

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD has said that “notwithstanding the change of Taoiseach Fine Gael’s time in power has been a story of never-ending crises and monumental failures”.

Speaking following a meeting on the Sinn Féin National Officer Board in East Meath, Teachta Adams said;

“The unprecedented crises in housing, health, and justice have all worsened due to the policies and agenda pursued by Fine Gael in government. There is also a chronic lack of accountability for those in power.

“Any idea of cutting taxes at a time when we have unprecedented crises in health and housing is extremely reckless and signals that Leo Varadkar’s government is not serious about tackling these social catastrophes. In contrast, Sinn Féin's alternative budget proposals will prioritise significant investment in public services.

“For ordinary citizens, it is obvious that the Taoiseach’s so-called ‘republic of opportunity’ will only mean more of the same; inequality, disadvantage, and a bad government making fundamentally bad decisions.”
