Mixed messages over murder…

THE DUP’S Ruth Patterson put forward a motion in Belfast City Council last night expressing sympathy to the family of UVF murder victim Craig McCausland (20) and urging politicians to urge anyone with information to contact the police. Councillor David Ervine of the PUP (which has links to the UVF) left the council chamber before the vote, while Sinn Fein abstained on the vote, saying it was politically motivated. It may well have been, but who should witnesses contact if the McCausland’s are to get justice? And what is the point of the PUP if it can’t even convince the UVF to stop killing innocent Prods, let alone anyone else? Sitting in the public gallery, the McCausland family was not impressed.
