Time for DUP to break its link with Sinn Fein

27 October 2008

Responding to Peter Robinson’s comments on a Sinn Fein protest at the parade to welcome home our troops Jim Allister said:

“It should come as no surprise that a party which justified the murder of Her Majesty’s troops over a thirty year campaign of terror should seek to disrupt this parade. I wholeheartedly concur with the joint First Minister when he says that Sinn Fein’s demonstration is “a recipe for disaster” but the question of why he maintains in a political union with this party remains unanswered.

“Mr Robinson is deluded if he believes that only some members of Sinn Fein/IRA have not entered a new era. The Republican leopard has not changed its spots and remains the same revolutionary organisation dedicated to the destruction of the state it always was. This despicable protest was organised by the same people who prevented the Executive from meeting for 130 days and it’s high time that the DUP woke up to the reality that they made a colossal mistake in buying into the Belfast Agreement”.
