Gerry Adams has claimed the Taoiseach Enda Kenny believes the Irish people "are stupid".

The Sinn Féin leader says that is the only way to interpret his refusal to take questions on the 'fiscal space' earlier this week, when he said he wanted to avoid jargon.

Sinn Féin has called on the three major parties to withdraw their manifestoes, saying it has exposed an error in their calculations.

Mr Adams says the refusal by Mr Kenny to discuss the finer details under claims that "the vast majority of people" would not understand the economic jargon used, means only one thing.
