DUP to accept Tory cuts for Orange march deal – O'Dowd

17 April, 2015 - by John O'Dowd


Sinn Féin MLA John O'Dowd has said the DUP is clearly shaping up to a deal accepting vicious Tory cuts to public services and welfare in exchange for an Orange Order march along the Crumlin Road.

Mr O'Dowd said; 

“The DUP is clearly shaping up to accept Tory cuts in return for a deal to force Orange Order marches through nationalist communities. 

"The DUP are obviously more concerned about appeasing the Orange Order than protecting communities from cuts.

“The DUP demand also raises questions for the British Tory party.

“Theresa Villiers needs to clarify is her party prepared to do a grubby deal with the DUP and give in to what can only be described as a nakedly sectarian demand.”
