Fianna Fáil Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill has called on Fine Gael and Labour Oireachtas members in Donegal to stand up against deeply unfair cuts in Budget 2013.Senator Ó Domhnaill said the TDs and Senators who have been wrestling with their consciences in public over mean-spirited measures in the Budget have an opportunity this week and next to vote against these cuts.The Donegal Senator said, “This Budget contains some deeply unfair measures that fly in the face of promises made by Fine Gael and Labour to voters here in Donegal and across the country. It is a Budget that takes no account of people’s ability to pay, does nothing to encourage growth and puts further pressure on already badly squeezed lower and middle income families.“A number of Government representatives both locally and nationally, including Fine Gael’s Joe McHugh, have been publically wrestling with their consciences over these callous cuts. Across the country there has been a parade of Fine Gael and Labour representatives muttering about the need for ‘processes’ and ‘consultation’ to change a budget they initially rushed to welcome. “But there is a process this week where they have the power to change these measures. They can vote against the cuts they disagree with during the debate on the Social Welfare Bill this week. My party intends to force votes on the measures we believe will further erode the quality of life of the most vulnerable, and the measures that take no account of ability to pay. These include:– the cut to child benefit– the cut to Respite Care Grant– the cuts to the Farm Assist Programme– the flat rate increase to PRSI affecting all income earners the same“If Government representatives really feel strongly about these callous cuts, they will vote against them instead of supporting them. The Fine Gael TDs here in Donegal can show their constituents that they are prepared to keep their promises.“This is about choices. If the Government had taken Fianna Fái;’s suggestion of adding 3% to the Universal Social Charge (USC) for people on over €100,000 a year and changes to pension tax relief for the country’s highest earners, most of these deeply unfair measures would have been completely unnecessary.” SENATOR CHALLENGES DONEGAL TDs TO STAND UP TO ‘UNFAIR CUTS’ was last modified: December 11th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:SENATOR CHALLENGES DONEGAL TDs TO STAND UP TO ‘UNFAIR CUTS’

Nigeria’s Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in Abuja Nigeria (Source: AP Photo/File) Top News Three years ago the abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls by the jihadist group Boko Haram in Chibok in northeastern Nigeria sparked global outrage and a celebrity-backed campaign #bringbackourgirls For more than two years there was no sign of the girls who were kidnapped by the Islamist fighters from their secondary school in Chibok in northeastern Borno State in April 2014 But the discovery of one of the girls with a baby last May raised hopes for their safety with a further two girls found in later months and a group of 21 released in October in a deal brokered by Switzerland and the International Red Cross Nigeria is facing mounting pressure to find the estimated 195 girls still held captive by the jihadist group Here are 10 key facts about the Chibok schoolgirls and Boko Haram: * Since 2009 Boko Haram has waged an insurgency to carve out an Islamic state in northeast Nigeria that has killed at least 20000 people and displaced more than two million * The most high-profile attack took place on April 14 2014 when Boko Haram kidnapped 276 schoolgirls from a secondary school in Chibok in northeast Borno state Around 50 of the girls escaped in the initial melee but 219 were captured * Nigeria’s government and military then under the command of former president Goodluck Jonathan faced heavy criticism for their handling of the incident with towns and cities across the nation witnessing protests * The kidnappings sparked a strong social media reaction with the phrase #bringbackourgirls tweeted around 33 million times by mid-May 2014 and the global campaign which followed backed by then US First Lady Michelle Obama * Hope for the girls was briefly raised in April 2015 when the Nigerian military announced it had rescued 200 girls and 93 women from the Sambisa forest northeast of Chibok It was later revealed that the Chibok girls were not among them * One of the Chibok girls Amina Ali was rescued in May Held for months by the Nigerian government she told her mother that the girls were starved and resorted to eating raw maize and that some had died in captivity suffered broken legs or gone deaf after being too close to explosions * At least 2000 girls and boys have been kidnapped by Boko Haram since the beginning of 2014 according to Amnesty International which says they are used as cooks sex slaves fighters and even suicide bombers * Boko Haram have used 27 children to carry out suicide attacks in West Africa in the first three months this year almost surpassing the total of 30 child bombings during 2016 said the UN children’s agency UNICEF * Nigeria is in talks with Boko Haram militants over the release of more of the abducted Chibok girls according to a mediator involved in the discussions * The militants split last year with one faction moving away from the group’s established figurehead Abubakar Shekau over his failure to adhere to guidance from Islamic State to which Boko Haram pledged allegiance in 2015 For all the latest World News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Reuters | Sydney | Published: October
