I’m looking forward to 2010, my strongest objective will be to ensure that Fine Gael enters government under my leadership. Ireland is facing a crucial period that will determine the society we live in for years to come depending on the decisions that are made at this important time. We are all facing greater difficulties in recent times, whether these are financial strain, employment issues, or other personal difficulties. Many of these problems are associated with the lack of leadership from this current Fianna Fáil/Green Government and their inability to protect the most vulnerable within society. I am aware of the problems that many people are facing and most importantly, we in Fine Gael have the solutions as well as the ambition to make them a reality. These plans include NewEra, an €18 billion economic stimulus package that would create 105,000 new jobs in the green energy sector. Other plans aim to protect small and medium enterprises in order to save jobs, promote fairness in healthcare through our FairCare policy, excellence in education through our Third Way document, and a better alternative to NAMA.
I would like to wish all the people of Mayo a peaceful Christmas and a happy New Year.
