Sinn Féin will continue to oppose and challenge discriminatory SPAD bill
Sinn Féin MLA Daithí McKay said that Jim Allister’s SPAD bill was an attempt to legitimise discrimination and inequality and the party had always opposed bad law and would continue to do so.
The North Antrim MLA said:
“The SPAD bill led by rejectionist unionist Jim Allister was and is bad law. With the assistance of the SDLP this law will discriminate. It is sectarian, anti equality and anti Good Friday Agreement.
“Sinn Féin has opposed this discriminatory law from the start and will continue to oppose it. We have challenged bad law in the past and this is no different.
“This legislation sets victim against victim in an attempt to reinforce the hierarchy of victims that republicans and nationalists are all too well aware of. It is bad and flawed law and we will continue to challenge it.”
