Independent Cllr. Thomas Pringle has condemned what he describes as the ”Ballymagash style politics of Fianna Fail” at the annual Donegal County Council’s budget meeting.
“In a move that Frank Hall would have been proud of in his comedy programme the Mayor and Fianna Fail members of Donegal Co. Council pulled an old style stroke in adopting the budget for the County yesterday. Their actions showed utter contempt for the other members of the council and have delivered a poorer budget than was possible. It will be the people and business people of Donegal that will ultimately be the losers in the stroke politics of the Fianna Fail members of the council” Cllr Pringle claimed.
“The other nineteen members of the council will meet over Christmas to decide on a strategy for dealing with the council for the new year that will ensure that the mandate of all members will be respected” concluded Pringle.
