Fine Gael and Labour engaged in political fraud – Ruane

Sinn Féin general election candidate, Thérèse Ruane, has accused both Fine Gael and Labour of engaging in political fraud after they agreed to facilitate the passage of the Finance Bill through the Dáil this week despite claiming to be opposed to the Bill.

“This week, there was an opportunity for the opposition parties to bring down this Government once and for all and to bring about the general election that the people are crying out for,” Cllr Ruane said. “The longer this Government stays in power the greater the damage that is being done to the economy and to our international reputation.

“Unfortunately, however, in what I can only describe as an act of political fraud, both Fine Gael and the Labour Party buckled and agreed to extend the life of the Government for one more week to pass a Finance Bill which they both claim to oppose.”
