Paul Murphy MEP questions the Taoiseach on the Austerity Treaty
He asks three main questions in relation to the Treaty. Firstly, why was the stabilitytreaty.ie website clearly biased in favour of the Yes side and potentially in breach of the McKenna judgement.
Secondly, he puts it to the Taoiseach as to why voters should believe Fine Gael’s rhetoric when during Lisbon II, promises were made in relation to jobs, which never materialised.
Lastly, the question is posed to the Taoiseach as to how this Treaty can in anyway bring stability when it will mean taking billions out of the budget and further deflate the economy.
