Now a prominent Fianna Fail activist in Cavan Kristopher Shekleton has announced he is quitting Fianna Fail describing the party as 'a dictatorship' adding that the party is 'going backwards' .
In a radio interview with Northern Sound , Mr Shekleton said :
The Fianna Fail party under the current leadership of Michael Martin and his advisors and those in HQ has become a dictatorship , the party has become stagnant , its going nowhwere , there is no way the party is moving forward , in fact it could be moving backwards
