Allister rebukes UUP in Europe

16 June 2006

On the back of a debate in the European Parliament on racist violence, DUP MEP, Jim Allister, attacked the UUP's link-up with the PUP. 

Mr Allister caused to be entered on the record of the Parliament the following statement:-

"In terms of the standards and ethics expected of democratic parties I very much regret that in Northern Ireland the Ulster Unionist Party has seen fit to invite into its Stormont Assembly Party the political representative of the UVF, an illegal organisation which has been mired in racist, sectarian and other violence. Such shameful association not only diminishes those who so taint themselves but undermines what should be a united stand by all democratic parties against criminality, whether of the racist or other variety."
