President absolutely right to call out housing disaster
Speaking in the Dáil this week Pearse Doherty said President Michael D Higgins was absolutely right to call out the housing disaster as the great failure of successive governments. Rather than attacking him, the Gov’t should listen.
He said the Government has been the best boy in the class for rolling out the red carpet for vulture funds and international investors instead of building affordable homes for workers and families. It’s time for change.

Government must introduce an emergency budget to protect struggling households
Mary Lou McDonald has said the Government’s refusal to introduce and emergency budget, in the midst of the biggest squeeze on household income in a decade, is inexcusable.

Brandon Lewis is talking through his hat
Speaking on Sky News this week Mary Lou McDonald has said that British Secretary of State Brandon Lewis is talking through his hat when he said the British Legislation will not breach International Law.
She said the Protocol is working, the people went to the polls last month and voted to return a majority of members who support the Protocol and the reckless Tories bill is an undoubtable breach of international law.

Government votes down Sinn Féin motion calling for school places for children with special educational needs
Sinn Féin used its Private Members’ Time in the Dáil this week to move a motion calling for emergency measures to ensure all children have an appropriate school place for September.
Education spokesperson Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire said the Government cannot continue to fail children with special educational needs. Sinn Féin will stand up for children with special educational needs and their families, and ensure that every child has access to education, as is their right.
Unfortunately the Government voted down the Sinn Féin motion.
