The Independent TD Mattie McGrath has launched a scathing attack on the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, by claiming he lobbied tech companies to ban advertising on the upcoming Eighth Amendment.
Speaking on RTÉ’s The Week in Politics programme, Mr McGrath accused the Taoiseach of harming the upcoming referendum, after outside advertising on social media platforms such as Facebook and YouTube was banned.
The move which has already been questioned by the Pro life groups, has once again been brought under the spotlight by Mr McGrath.
Speaking on the programme questioned Mr Varadkar’s involvement in the ban by stating that he had a fair idea of who prompted the companies to introduce the ban.
Mr McGrath also stated that Irish people know what’s going on, and they don’t trust the government.
