Sinn Féin TD for Kerry Martin Ferris has accused Fianna Fáil of hypocrisy after the party voted against a Sinn Féin motion calling for the prioritisation of funding for local and regional roads.
Abandonment of Funding
“After the calamity of previous Fianna Fáil administrations and the subsequent abandonment of funding for local roads, Fianna Fáil yesterday voted against an amendment to increase funding for Kerry’s roads,” said Deputy Ferris.
Brass Neck Hypocrisy
“After a much publicised motion earlier this week it demonstrates once more the utter and brass neck hypocrisy of the party, when they claim they are in opposition to this Government. In reality, they are trying to play for both teams and have once again dropped the ball.
“This week when Sinn Féin sought to insert a solid and tangible commitment into a private members motion, Fianna Fáil baulked and voted against it.
Rubber Stamping Budget
“After being led along by Fine Gael and rubber stamping Budget 2018 last year, Fianna Fáil is now trying to make out that they have notions of being a counter to the very government they are propping up. They have failed the test once again.
“I have no confidence in Fianna Fáil holding this Government to account, the only real opposition faced by Fine Gael is supplied by Sinn Féin,” Deputy Ferris concluded.
