Some threats against politicians are ‘shocking’, says Martin

Amidst alleged threats made against politicians, Tánaiste Micheál Martin said that he is “very much aware” of some of the “shocking” threats, reports RTE.

“Some of the cases are shocking,” Mr Martin said, adding that the “very negative, misogynistic focus is a worry for women who wish to get into politics; this is a significant deterrent in itself”.

“We do need to address it, collectively, in the house,” he added, and urged that supports be provided for, reports RTE.

That being said, Martin pointed out that “the vast, vast majority of people are courteous, warm and hospitable”.
