DUP calls on Sinn Fein to welcome Royals…

Hmmm… mutual winding up continues? This time the DUP calls on Sinn Fein to prove it’s unionist outreach programme is genuine by welcoming them to Northern Ireland. Martina Anderson’s reply:

“Sinn Féin has no problem with these visitors and they obviously mean a great deal to a section of the society here. However, Ian Paisley jnr would better spending his time reflecting on his failure to apologise for his outrageous attack on the gay and lesbian community. After all it is his job as a junior minister in the Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister to protect and promote the rights of that community.”
