O'Brien Welcomes Red C Poll Result

O’Brien Welcomes Red C Poll Result

Sinn Féin councillor Jonathan O’Brien has welcomed today’s Red C Poll which shows support for Sinn Féin at 16%.

Cllr O’Brien said:

“A poll is only a poll and needs to be treated as such. Nevertheless the rise in support for Sinn Féin recorded in today’s RED C Poll reflects what we have been hearing on the ground for some time.”

“More and more people are coming to recognise that Sinn Féin is putting forward a real alternative to the failed policies of the establishment parties. While Fianna Fail has run this state into the ground, Fine Gael and Labour are proposing nothing different.”

“Sinn Féin is the only party unambigiously committed to burning the bondholders at Anglo Irish Bank and imposing a deep haircut on bondholders at Bank of Ireland and AIB. We are the only party who will tear up the agreement with the EU and IMF if we get into government, rather than see our country condemned to a decade of economic bondage.”

“We are the only party to propose a stimulus package for the economy and to produce a detailed job creation strategy. We were the only party to reject the completely arbitrary goal imposed by the EU of reducing our budget deficit to 3% of GDP by 2014 – a goal which even the government now recognises is unrealistic.”

“We are the only party to date to put forward a fully costed alternative budget.”

“The growing support for Sinn Féin – as evidenced by Pearse Doherty’s massive bye-election victory in Donegal – shows people are coming to realise there is a better way.”

“Whenever the next general election is called, Sinn Féin will be going out to win seats in both Cork North Central and Cork South Central. Building on our strong base in local government, and with growing popular support, I believe we will succeed and provide a strong radical voice for people in this city.”
