People Before Profit TD says Varadkar’s RIC commemoration comments unbecoming of an Irish Taoiseach

People Before Profit TD Bríd Smith has said that the comments by Leo Varadkar about commemorations of the RIC that he is ‘disappointed to hear that some people are going to boycott the event were “unbecoming of a Taoiseach and shows a nonchalant attitude to the brutality of imperialist rule in Ireland and it shows the government’s hostility to all struggles, even the one that created the Irish State”.Read more »

There are few things that make me as angry as bullying. The powerful bullying the weak. Fine Gaelers blaming, and bullying, refugees. And why? to distract from their own mis-rule. Low-life. RTE news tonight had this following clip.

They failed us on housing. They failed us on health..on childcare…on every issue that matters. So who do they blame? Refugees of course!! The most unfortunate of people, made scapegoats by the morally and socially bankrupt politicians of FG. Verona Murphy is deplorable, but that Varadkar fails to stand her down, speaks volumes. Shame on them all.

CLIMATE HYPOCRITE! Varadkar boasts in New York how he’s against oil exploration, but is ok with gas exploration. But you don’t get one without the other! He’s ‘spinning’ climate abuse! And at the same time he welcomes importing FRACKED GAS – viciously poisonous to the environment. I discussed this on The Late Debate the other evening (this is an audio clip from the show)

The €5million FG spin machine is faulty! It let Leo spill the beans on how you REALLY do business in Ireland – get a Minister to make a call to the planning department. Sorted. And of course you can’t spin away broken services and homeless children. Maybe FG should get a refund! But actually…it was we, the taxpayers, who paid for this…wasn’t it!

LEO,TRUMP AND ST PATRICK! I was on Primetime last night discussing them. To be fair, St Patrick didn’t figure much – but wastn’t it astonishing that our Taoiseach jokes about bending the planning process for Trump in Clare! And how he could entertain that racist, sexist, homophobe? Surely we’ve gone beyond the days the “The Quiet Man”, where the cringing Irish have to suck up to ‘the rich Yank’!

Press Release- Bríd Smith TD, People Before Profit

16/02/2018

People Before Profit TD, Bríd Smith, has labelled the new government National Development Plan a “fantasy and a fraud”.

“We are being promised pie in the sky, but only by 2040, we will have new hospitals, houses and trains, but only by 2040. This National Development Plan is simply a pre-election gimmick by Varadkar’s spin team,” said the Dublin South Central TD.Read more »

People Before Profit TD Brid Smith is calling on the Taoiseach and his cabinet to opt for a simple “Repeal” or “Repeal Simpliciter” at their meeting on Monday 29th January which will decide the wording and the date of the referendum on 8th Amendment to the constitution.

Deputy Smith said “It is worth noting that fourteen of twenty TD’s and Senators who worked on the special joint Oireachtas Committee on 8th Amendment voted to recommend a straightforward repeal of the Eighth Amendment. This is a signifcant majority on the committee and must therefore carry some weight and influence with the Cabinet in reaching their decision. Even if the Attorney General does not recommend a simple Repeal there was very significant legal advice given to the committee that any attempt to keep abortion in the constitution could be very problematic and that it is impossible to give absolute legal certainty in trying to do so.”Read more »
