Good to see that the all-Ireland political entity known as Sinn Féin is using joined up campaigning. On one side of the border that they now recognise (cf Belfast Agreement) people are being encouraged to join with Gerry Adams and protest the cuts – see poster…
Whilst in Northern Ireland, Sinn Féin is saying that they want to make savings cuts worth £1billion and make £800 million in revenue. According to Eamonn Mallie, the deputy First Minister, Martin McGuinness said (on tackling the economy)
Let us have a bit of blue sky thinking – thinking outside the box.
Mr Mallie also said that Sinn Féin want to make savings by implementing RPA (Review of Public Administration) and that ESA (Education and Skills Authority) could make savings of £80million. Well ESA could – that is if Sinn Féin’s minister would actually get on with bringing it forward to the Assembly. Once again, just like the DUP’s Edwin Poots, we have a Northern Ireland Party complaining about lack of movement when in fact it is their own ministers that are the problem.
