Varadkar puts it up to McDonald declaring Sinn Fein has to live up to its “extraordinary election promises”




It looks like Fine Gael are putting it right up to Sinn Fein and demanding that they now try to form some sort of government and deliver on the “extraordinary promises” that they made during the general election campaign.

Speaking outside the Dail after some six hours of deliberation with the Fine Gael parliamentary party, the outgoing Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said that it is “preparing to go into Opposition”.

The parliamentary party held its first meeting after losing 12 seats in the general election.

Varadkar left the door open for Sinn Fein to try and form a government but backed it up by saying that Fianna Fail would have to form its own government should Sinn Fein fail to do so.
