Young Fine Gael urges youth to vote and criticises Sinn Fein's 'Fairy Tale' Economics

Young Fine Gael has today (Thursday) made a final call to young people across Ireland to ensure their voices are heard through the ballot box and vote for young candidates in the Local and European Elections. Voting takes place tomorrow, Friday 23 May.

YFG President Dale McDermott criticised Sinn Fein's economic policies by saying: 'they would cause more borrowing, more debt, more taxes, more unemployment and a prolonged recession.'

Dale McDermott also commented: 'Sinn Fein would have voters believe that a boom and bust caused by too much borrowing can be solved by more borrowing causing higher taxes and ultimately a longer recession. Sinn Fein is trying to spin a Fairy Tale that the solution to a debt crisis is more debt. Locally, they promise higher council spending but fail to be clear about the necessary increases in the property tax or in commercial rates for small business owners. Sinn Fein has sat in the comfortable seats of opposition pretending that tough decisions can be avoided. Ireland cannot afford pretence on national economic issues.'
