Sinn Fein TD Eoin Ó Broin
At launch of Sinn Féin’s policy on housing Eoin Ó Broin said despite FF and FG ruling out his party as coalition partners in favour of an amalgam of smaller parties….
…the only opinion poll of the campaign so far – the Behaviour and Attitudes Poll in the Sunday Times which suggests Sinn Fein is at 19% is just one point behind Fine Gael on 20% – “does not show that we are being squeezed in that way.”
Rather, he says, it shows that Sinn Féin is in a “key position” in terms of the potential composition of the next government.
“We know what happens when you put the Labour and Green Party in Government. They break their promises and they allow Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael to do exactly what they would do when they are left to their own devices. Sinn Féin is different.“
