Fitzgerald resignation fallout: Department of Justice 'a cesspit', 'arrogant' Varadkar seriously undermined
This morning, Tanaiste Frances Fitzgerald was forced to resign after further emails were found during a 'trawl' of the Department of Justice systems which revealed that she received numerous emails in relation to the Maurice McCabe affair and plans by senior Gardai to attack his integrity and credibility.
Solidarity TDs have said today that this is not the end of the matter and that there are still serious questions to be answered.
As discussions between Fianna Fail and Fine Gael continue in their attempt to prevent the government collapsing over the role of Minister Frances Fitzgerald in the Maurice McCabe scandal, Solidarity TD Ruth Coppinger has for action to allow a referendum on the Repeal of the 8th Amendment to be fast-tracked through the Dáil.
Should the government collapse, the Oireachtas Committee on the 8th Amendment which is still discussing the issue would also collapse.
Now is the time for Solidarity
The conservative, right-wing politics of the establishment provide no future for young people, women and workers. All they offer is inequality, austerity and bigotry. They support the capitalist market which is driven by the ruthless drive for profit and is incapable of meeting our needs. Solidarity is about bringing together all those oppressed and exploited by this rigged system into a new political movement for the millions, not the millionaires. Join us today.
