Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Allister agenda about return to the past

6 August, 2009 - by John O'Dowd

Sinn Féin MLA John O'Dowd has said there is nothing new in recent comments from Jim Allister and that his agenda is to take us back to a past where unionist domination and discrimination existed.

Mr O'Dowd said:

"Jim Allister needs to understand that we have made real progress over recent years built on the recognition that a partnership of equals is the only way forward. He also needs to realise that there is no going back to the unionist domination and discrimination of the past.

"Whether Jim or any other rejectionist unionist likes it or not the reality is that power sharing is at the heart of the political progress we have made and fantasies about a return to unionist majority mis-rule are delusional." ENDS
