Water charge activist applauds TD’s speech in Dáil

first_imgRight2Water activist Philip McFadden has applauded Dublin TD Eoin O’Broin’s speech in the Dáil last week where he called for water to come into public ownership.In his speech, O’Broin said “a majority of voters want water charges scrapped and a majority of deputies in this house want water charges scraped, yet the government’s discredited water charges regime limps on.”He goes on to assert that it is time that it is time to end the “circus that is the debate on water charges.” He commended water activists, and applauded those who traveled to Dublin for the Right2Water demonstration in Dublin at the end of September, saying the protesters reminded the government that the water charge issue “hasn’t gone away.”He concluded by saying that this is “oldschool, dishonest, and cynical Fianna Fail politics at its very worst.”Philip McFadden commented on O’Broin’s speech saying; “Right2Water are 100% behind the Sinn Fein Right2Change motion to abolish water charges. Fianna Fail were elected in the last general election to abolish water charges, so why are they not getting rid of them now? We do not need a commission to get rid of water charges; 70% of TDs in the Dáil have a mandate to Abolish Water charges.”McFadden wishes to encourage Donegal’s politicians to “do the bidding of their electorate.”  Water charge activist applauds TD’s speech in Dáil was last modified: October 9th, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare 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)last_img
