You do not have the confidence of the people, Gilmore tells Cowen

Posted on January 19, 2011 at 07:54 PM

"The Taoiseach is now doing everything he possibly can to move away from having his case tested in the Dáil and is delaying for as long as possible from having it tested in the country," Eamon Gilmore TD told the Dáil today.

"The country needs a new Government that can deal with the problems that are facing the people, can come to grips with the need to get people back to work, get some confidence back into the economy, get a fresh start and enable people to move on from the mess that Fianna Fail has created."

Addressing Cowen the Labour Leader said that while the Taoiseach may have survived a Fianna Fail motion of confidence yesterday that he does not enjoy the confidence of the people 'some nine out of every 10 people in the country have no confidence in the Government and want it out of office'.
