LABOUR TD for Cork South-West Michael McCarthy has likened Declan Ganley’s entry into the referendum debate as being akin to a “vanity project”.
Deputy McCarthy said, “I recognise the mandate that public representatives of all hues and none have on either side of the Stability Treaty argument, and I respect the mandate that people will use to support the Treaty and indeed to oppose it, which is a healthy aspect of any democracy.
A FINE Gael city councillor has been left incensed after the information leaflet on the upcoming referendum was delivered to his home with a second leaflet, a British UK Independence party pamphlet, advocating a No vote folded up inside it.
Cllr Emmet O’Halloran said the leaflet from the Referendum Commission is supposed to explain the Fiscal Stability Treaty in a fair and unbiased way.
THE Fianna Fáil Leader Micheál Martin has repeated his invitation to the Sinn Féin Leader Gerry Adams for a head to head debate on the Stability Treaty.
Deputy Martin commented, “It is quite clear that Gerry Adams is not serious about debating the real issues in this Treaty directly with the Yes side. After refusing my invitation for a head to head debate last weekend, Deputy Adams issued an invitation to the Taoiseach that he knew was unlikely to be accepted.
