from An Phoblacht:
THE general election must mark a sea change in Irish politics, Sinn Féin’s Dáil leader has said. The priority of the new Dáil must be to reverse the cuts and challenge the IMF sell-out, he said.
Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD said there will be widespread relief and satisfaction that the end of this Fianna Fáil/ Green Government is now clearly in sight.
The extraordinary events unfolding in Fianna Fáil have seen an embattled Taoiseach make a huge miscalculation, the Cavan/Monaghan TD said, thinking he could pull the cynical political stroke of appointing new Cabinet ministers to try and salvage some political advantage for Fianna Fáil a few weeks before a general election.
That miscalculation was based on the fact that up to now the Green Party has acted as the mudguard for Fianna Fáil, even accepting the sell-out of economic sovereignty in the IMF/EU deal.
Both Fianna Fáil and the Greens deserve to be devastated at the polls on March 11th.
