The next General Election will be vitally important to Ireland.
People will have a clear choice between stability and economic progress on the one hand; and chaos and uncertainty on the other.
A clear choice between the proven record of Fine Gael and the Labour Party on the one hand; or risking Ireland’s hard-won progress with those who wrecked Ireland’s economy several times in the past, or those whose policies would surely wreck it in the future.
This recovery cannot be taken for granted. It has to be secured and strengthened. Only a strong and well managed economy can generate the resources to invest in our public services and protect our vulnerable citizens.
Fine Gael has a plan to keep the recovery going. It’s a plan based on enterprise, not speculation.
When we were elected to office in 2011, we made two core promises to the people of Ireland – to fix the public finances, and to get our country working again.
We must now build on the fulfilment of those promises.
Over the coming months, I look forward to explaining our plan to the Irish people.
It will be up to the people to make their own judgement on our record to date, and on which party has the best plan to keep the recovery going.
On both questions, I believe that we in Fine Gael can make our case with confidence.
