Robert Troy Should Resign or be Fired - Tóibín

Aontú Leader and Meath West TD Peadar Tóibín has called on Minister Troy to resign from office and if not for the Taoiseach to fire him.

Speaking today in relation to the growing crisis Tóibín stated;

“The Minister for Company Regulations, a Landlord with a significant property portfolio has broken Public Office Standards regulations. He was inaccurate in his declarations year after year. He profited from a Housing Crisis, received significant funds from the state while not declaring conflict of interest in the Dáil. It has further emerged that a property part owned by Minister Robert Troy has no fire-safety certificate and is being investigated for alleged unauthorised development”.

"These issues are serious enough. But it’s also important to understand that they happened during the worst housing crisis in generations in this state. It gives credence to what many people believe, that TDs with the profit motivations of large  Landlords are not best placed to fulfil the opposite needs of hundreds of thousands of tenants that are being hammered with the highest rents in history."

"Its clear that the Taoiseach, the Tánaiste and many opposition TDs fear seeking this resignation as they worry more of their own TDs have similarly broken SIPO regulations." Concluded Tóibín

The Irish political system is radically broken

In Ireland the vast majority of elected representatives put a finger in the air to check which way the political wind is blowing. They have one eye on their leaders – seeking brownie points – and another eye keeping their seat safe. If elected reps shut up and do as they’re told, they are promoted; if they stand up for what they believe in, they are demoted. No wonder we have the political class we have. No wonder one point one billion euro is being buried in a hole under the National Children’s Hospital and that Stormont is in stalemate.

Throughout Ireland, many people are now afraid to say what they feel, many are afraid to respectfully engage on a range of different topics. Many feel there is a new censorship and a new political correctness in Ireland, that opposition to the establishment is being deleted.

Respectful opposition is not the enemy. Respectful opposition is a critical element of a functional democracy. Aontú will have the backbone to stand up, without fear, for you.
