Peter Robinson needs to ‘calm down’

15 November, 2011 - by Raymond McCartney

Responding to comments from Peter Robinson threatening resignation over necessary Prison reforms, Sinn Féin Assembly Group leader Raymond McCartney said:

“Peter Robinson needs to calm down.

“Prison reform needs to be allowed to take its course without this sort of intervention.

“At this time of great economic challenges for the Executive the people expect their political leaders to be getting on with the job not engaging in this type of behaviour. We did not hear threats of resignation when the British government removed £4bn from the block grant.

“There are big challenges out there and threatening resignations and elections is not what people voted for last May and it is not helpful.”
