Sinn Féin - On Your Side

DUP living in political fantasy land

1 March, 2004

West Belfast Sinn Féin Assembly member Bairbre de Brún has accused the DUP of 'living in a political fantasy land'. Ms de Brún's comments come after the DUP held a series of meetings today with the Alliance and the SDLP stating that their intention was to achieve the exclusion of Sinn Féin from the process.

Ms de Brún said:

"The DUP must be living in a political fantasy land if they think that people will accept the exclusion of the largest pro Agreement and the largest nationalist party in the six counties from the political process.

"An aim of any process of conflict resolution is to end second class citizenship not underscore it. Any successful process demands inclusivity and respect for party's electoral mandates. Sinn Féin's commitment to this process cannot be questioned. Unlike the DUP whose agenda is to wreck the process, Sinn Féin will continue to promote and defend the Good Friday Agr
