Adams: “Enda Kenny should stop getting in a tizzy over coalition speculation”

The leader of the Sinn Fein party Gerry Adams has taken a clean swipe at the Taoiseach Enda Kenny, saying he should not ‘get in a tizzy’ over recent talk that suggested a future coalition between the two parties.

Mr Adams comments come after both Mr Kenny and the deputy leader of the Sinn Fein party Mary Lou McDonald apparently refused to rule out future coalition, a fact the Taoiseach has since strenuously dismissed.

Speaking today Mr Adams said: “Fine Gael should stop getting into a tizzy on this issue. The Taoiseach should also stop flip-flopping. I would like to help calm Fine Gael down. There is no possibility of Sinn Féin propping up Fine Gael in government, given their disastrous policies. That is the role that Fianna Fáil have taken on.

“This partnership of Enda Kenny and Micheál Martin has delivered the highest levels of homelessness in the history of the state; new horror stories emerge out of the health system on a daily basis and we have a government that is not only wholly unprepared for Brexit but has no idea how to prepare.”

“The Sinn Féin Ard Fheis determines our party policy on coalition. Of course, we want to be in government but not for the sake of it or for having republican bums on Cabinet seats. We want to be in government to effect real change in people’s lives.”
