As manager of Fine Gael’s campaign during the Fiscal Compact Treaty Debate, Minister Simon Coveney casually dismissed the validity of election promises. In response to the now French President’s election demand for re-negotiation of the Treaty, Coveney said that one couldn’t treat election promises seriously. At least he speaks according to how Fine Gael have acted!
Asked on the Pat Kenny show on 24/4/12 whether Mr Hollande’s actions could impact on a yes vote, Simon Coveney, said:
“I would be wary enough about the election promises being made in the heat of an election”
Is there no integrity left? no role for truth and transparency? no accountability?
