Newly elected Donegal South West Deputy Pearse Doherty has used his maiden speech in the Irish parliament, the Dail, to round on the country’s opposition party, Fine Gael.
Breaking an unwritten code of non-sensational maiden speeches, Sinn Fein’s new Deputy laid into Fine Gael for their support of the current Government’s emergency budget. His speech outlined his view that the opposition’s support for the Government’s budget plan was more about political advantage than looking after the people’s interests. Perceptive.
For a maiden speech he certainly made some impact.
