“…no longer share the belief…”

The Irish News reports Dungannon SF councillor, Barry Montheith has resigned from the party (subs reqd). He stated:

“This is due to an increased disillusionment with current Sinn Fein strategy. I no longer share the belief that this strategy will lead to Irish Unification….It is not just solely about policing. I am disillusioned with the current political strategy…”

He represents Dungannon Town DEA and intends to keep his council seat. Montieth was once SF’s youngest councillor and served a number of terms as Mayor. Michelle Gildernew said the resignation was not a surprise and challenged him to resign his seat to enable the co-option of a SF councillor.
