Kenny: Slams Cabinet ministers 'lack of courage'

Published 20/01/2008

The Fine Gael leader Enda Kenny has hit back at the Minister Miche€l Martin in a developing war of words over FG's Standards in Public Office Commission complaint against the Taoiseach.

Mr Kenny has accused Minister Martin and all the government ministers of a lack of courage:

"Miche€l Martin does not accept responsibility for any of his actions. He's one of 14 other ministers who sit down at the Cabinet table with the Taoiseach and they know that he cannot produce a Certificate of Tax Clearance.

"All of these ministers are, by their silence and their lack of courage, condoning this situation and I have a duty to point this out, as a leader of the opposition," he said.
