Sinn Fein McDonald slams Taoiseach's lack of reaction to 'big three summit' in Berlin

18 February 2004
Sinn Fein's EU Candidate for Dublin, Mary Lou McDonald has accused the Irish
Government of having 'no backbone over the 'Big Three Summit' meeting in
Berlin' today between Germany, France and Britain.

She said: 'The very fact that the Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern does not seem unduly concerned by this meeting, serves to highlight the attitude of the Irish government
towards the increasingly elitist and exclusive private club that the EU is being
transformed into.'
