Instead they deepened and prolonged the recession and made sure that inequality has thrived.“They are presiding over a repossession crisis they facilitated. They have sided with the banks over the people and with the needs of the Troika over the needs of our society.”He added that the current Government have used emigration as a safety valve even going so far as to cut young people’s jobseekers’ allowance to push our young people away. “This is a deeply cynical and unfair government and impressive growth figures cannot change that.“It is time to rebuild our communities and repair our society. Now is not the time for income tax cuts, rather it is time to invest in our public services and to abolish regressive taxes like the Family Home tax and Water Charges.”FAIR RECOVERY NOT POSSIBLE UNDER FG/LABOUR GOVERNMENT – DOHERTY was last modified: March 13th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalGovernmentPearse DohertyrecoverySinn Feinlast_img
